Question about RCA RCD123 Cassette/CD Boombox

Open Question

Radio not working properly

So I was listening to the radio the other day no problem, but then suddenly all of the higher frequencies including the station I was listening to only submit a high-pitched annoying squeal rather than whatever is supposed to be on the station. Any solutions or ideas as to what could have happened or is it time I resign myself to having to get a new radio?

SOURCE: An Annoying High Pitch Sound

I have the same problem. Mine seems to deal with the brightness of the screen. I turned down the brightness and it got better. It still makes the noise and I am going to take it in to see if it can be fixed. I just don't want to do with out my TV - Isn't that horrible.

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.

To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.

Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.

The power supply is starting to fail. There are a number of capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced. A local repair shop should be able to fix this easily. Figure on $10 max for parts.

Hello I have a RadioShack police scanner with frequencies on it I have had it for 5 years noe all of a sudden I ain't receiving any action and my squelch


The police and or fire department may have gone digital. an analog scanner will not pick that up. Often departments will switch their frequencies so the "bad guys" cannot listen in. They forget many of us "good guys" listen and can aid them.
Does the squelch make noise if you turn it all the way to open? Then you know the scanner is working.

I am trying to re tune to my local radio station radio Merseyside on dab but it says station not available or goes to another station ?


Have you checked the frequency of that Station?
Also check your aerial.

I have also found this:
Listeners to DAB digital radio in the Merseyside area will need to retune on Wednesday 20th April following a frequency change that will affect local radio stations.

The local DAB multiplex carrying BBC Merseyside, Radio City 1-3 and Capital Liverpool among others will be moving to a new frequency in order to allow better reception over a wider area. The current frequency will be turned off late on Tuesday 19th April. The new frequency will go live from 6am on Wednesday 20th April, after which listeners will need to rescan their DAB radios in order to continue listening.

How to program the radio in a 96Lincoln continental after battery was disconnected


Hi,

Here is the link to the owners manual which you can download if you wish:

http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=1996&make=Lincoln&model=Continental

Here/below are the specific instructions on the radio programming (pg. 159 of above link).


Good luck & please flag if "HELPFUL". Thanks!

(from section) Luxury Audio System


Selecting the AM or FM frequency band

Push the "AM" or "FM1/FM2" button to select the desired frequency band. Pushing the "FM1/FM2" button more than once will alternate between FM1 and FM2. These functions are used with the station memory buttons described under How to tune radio stations.

HOW to tune radio stations

There are four ways for you to tune in a particular station. You can use the "TUNE", "SEEK", 'SCAN"or memory buttons.

• Using the "TUNE" function:
You can change the frequency up or down one increment at a time by Pressing and releasing either the left (< arrow/up) or - right (> arrow/down) side of the "TUNE" or "TUNE DISCS" button. To change frequencies quickly, press and hold down either the right or left side of the button.

Manual tuning adjusts your radio to any allowable broadcast frequency, whether or not a station is present on that frequency. (See All About Radio Frequencies in this section.)

• Using the "SEEK" function
: Press the right *) side of the "SEEK" button to select the next listenable station up the frequency band. Press the left (.4) side of the button to select the next listenable station down the frequency band. By holding the button down, listenable stations can be passed over to reach the desired station. Pressing the "SCAN" button will begin the scan mode up the frequency band, stopping on each listenable station for approximately five seconds. To stop the scan mode on the presently sampled station, press the "SCAN" button again.

Setting the station MEMORY PRESET buttons
: Your radio is equipped with 6 station memory buttons. These buttons can be used to select up to 6 preset AM stations and 12 FM stations (6 in FMI and 6 in FM2)

1. Select a band, then select a frequency.

2. Press one of the memory buttons and hold until the sound returns and the lamp above the memory button lights up. That
memory button is now set.

3. Follow the above steps for each memory preset button.

NOTE:
Custom memory presets can be recalled using the keyless entry system. See Memory Profile System in the Features chapter.

Using the Automatic Memory Store feature ("AUTOSET")
: If the memory buttons have been set, either by using the Auto Memory Load feature or if you have set them manually, the system is prepared tolet you use a convenient feature called Automatic Memory Store.

With Auto Memory Store, you can continually set strong stations into your memory buttons without losing your originally set stations. Your radio will automatically set your memory buttons to the strong local stations.

Activate Auto Memory Store by pushing the "AUTOSET" button once. Your radio will set the first six strong stations of the band you are in (AM, FMI or FM2) into the memory buttons. The display will flash "AUTO" and display the autoset icon "A" while the stations are being set in the memory buttons.

NOTE: If there are less than six strong stations in the frequency band, the remaining unfilled buttons will store the last strong station detected on the band. After all stations have been filled, the radio will begin playing the station stored on memory button 1.

To deactivate the Auto Memory Store mode and return to the manually-set memory button stations, simply push the "AUTOSET" button. Display will show "AUTO" then "OFF". The next time Auto Memory Store is activated on that band, the radio will store the next set of six strong stations.

How can I get my car radio unstuck from one station?


Try disconnecting the negative ground (-) cable from the battery. That will disconnect power to everything including your radio. It might reset it self when you restore power by reconnect the negative ground cable to the battery.

sounds like a noise filtering issue, could be caused by the alternator. if it works fine with the engine off then the problem is going to be the alternator. It can also be a bad earth on the radio/antenna

Slightly off frequency is it possible to correct


I assume it is digital tuning?
If it is digital tuning the answer is no.
Sometimes reception is better when you purposely mis-tune by one digit lower or higher than the stations call numbers.
If it is under warranty, try exchanging it or just listen to and compare another one or more of the same model to hear if they are all slightly off frequency.

How do I avoid 27.145 MHz Radio Frequency controlled toy car affect by other toy car with the same frequency? Thx


If there is more than one Radio Controlled (RC) devices operating on the same radio control frequency operating in the same proximity - there's going to be an issue for one or both devices.
Simple, inexpensive RC devices operating on the same frequency have no way of being "paired" (like a bluetooth device to a phone) to a particular controller (more expensive devices and controllers have sophisticated ways to get around this limitation by setting codes that allow the device to respond to only the matching controller). You would need to have both the control and device on a new frequency that is different from other RC devices to retain control of the device - otherwise once the device gets close enough to the other controller - it will begin responding to it instead of yours.

In order to use your RC device, you'll need to remain closer to your device than the other controller is. This makes your controller's signal more powerful and should overcome the more distant controller signal. Keep in mind that your range of control will be reduced as the signal suffers from interference from the other controller - much like driving in your car listening to the radio that has 2 broadcasters on the same frequency. While close to home, you hear your local station clearly - but as you get further from the local station, there is an area where the signal from the other station overlaps with your local station - making understanding what is being broadcast by either station completely unintelligible. You have to tune away or shut off the radio until you're closer to one station or the other. Had there been no second station on the same frequency - or had been travelling in a different direction, you might have been able to listen to your local station for the whole trip. The same holds true for your RC device. In an open area alone - you may have control for 200 feet. But in an area with another RC controller operating on the same frequency as yours, that distance may plummet to just 50 feet. The more distance there is between RC controllers and devices competing for the use of the same frequency - the better the experience will be.


I hope this helps and good luck!

I may not be in right area for my question, and perhaps you could redirect me. For years we've listened to our local station 104.9, and now the transmission to that station has totally failed, and another...


Firstly don't ignore the possibility of a fault with your receiver. A sophisticated modern receiver has circuitry to help prevent second-channel interference.

Secondly, has somebody built something nearby that is either masking the wanted signal or reflecting the unwanted signal? Generally unless you are using a suitable external aerial sited above the ridgeline of the surrounding buildings you have little or no right to complain about reception problems but don't let that prevent you from complaining to anyone that will listen.

Next, it is worth checking the frequency - sometimes radio station frequencies move.
If nothing has changed - nobody has built anything, you are confident your radio is ok and the frequency is unchanged, if it is a portable radio then moving it and/or changing the length and angle of the aerial might be successful.
If it is a fixed radio with an external aerial of an omnidirectional type you should replace it with a directional type with a fairly high gain.

How do I preset the tuner for radio stations. I've never had a problem doing this with any other stereo. But what I think should work isn't!


Not very specific. Do you have the manual?

The following is from a VSX-03TXH manual. It ain't pretty but it may help.

I'm posting it in multiple parts due to space contraints.

Chapter 6:

Using the tuner

Listening to the radio

The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and

AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and

manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the

frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can

memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving

station presets below for more on how to do this.

1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.

2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or

AM), if necessary.

Each press switches the band between FM and AM.

3 Tune to a station.

There are three ways to do this:

Automatic tuning

To search for stations in the currently selected band,

press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The

receiver will start searching for the next station,

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for

other stations.

Manual tuning

To change the frequency one step at a time, press

TUNE ?©/??.

High speed tuning

Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.

Release the button at the frequency you want.

Improving FM stereo sound

If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when

tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press

the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono

reception mode. This should improve the sound quality

and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.

Using Neural THX

This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to

achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.

How to overcome encryption on police frequencies on my PRO 96 SCANNER. Stumped.


Law enforcement agencies employ a number of high-level encryption systems, including DES, to prevent eavesdropping on their radio communications. In addition, some EDACS trunking systems have a ProVoice option that encrypts communications to and from specific users. Sorry, but you will NOT "overcome" these encryption systems. Keys for the systems are updated regularly, so even if you "found" a radio from the system you would not be able to listen in for more than a day or so.
