10-year-old Kloss, model 88 stopped playing, suddenly.
Above sums it; stopped playing in middle of a song. Checked plug, and tried it in other outlets; to no avail. Until this, had good sound, low static and good pick-up, both AM/FM stations. (FM stronger, of course, as with all radios.) Am wondering if it has a fuse or something similar that may have gone bad? I like the shape and size, in addition to the quality sound of this radio, but would not want to spend huge amt. on it.
I have a similar problem with my Model 88 radio to the one betlea posted under the Tivoli model One. I use it to play my iPod in the kitchen - very important. The problem seems to be with the volume controller. Sometimes it plays fine and other times it just won't play at all.
Key symptom is that when I turn it on, the volume level display runs up to whatever the last level was, e.g. 35, then there is no sound. Sometimes if I turn it on and off several times, it will suddenly work again. Second symptom is that the volume level won't change, either with the push-button controls on the radio or with the remote.
Does anyone have a schematic diagram for the Model 88?

The laser assembly moves from the inside of the disk to the outside as it plays. You can try to clean the rails that the assembly moves on. If there is something stuck to it, it can cause the laser to have a hard time moving and cause skipping. try cleaning with cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol.
your headphone jack mitebe dirty or broken. try to clean out the headphone jack with a q-tip that has some rubbing alcohal on it and clean it out. if its broken then you mite need to replace it. if hats the case its best to try to get a new one those things are h311 to replace. but if your determined to keep that one then you mite be able to find another one that will fit the motherboard. find sum one who can solder good (if your not good at it) and get it replaced.
First thing I would do is download and install a software update program from rca's website. If the upgrade doesn't work, which it should, then battery pack or ribbon connection cable between battery pack and main circuit board is loose or faulty.
Hi there, one of the problems you have is that there is not much you can access from via your phone, so often the easiest (although not speediest) solution is to re-upload the songs. Have you tried adding another song, playing it, and seeing if that song will play successfully? If it does, then I would suggest deleting the other songs, and uploading them to your phone again.
If this is not possible (because you downloaded them straight from mobile network), upload them to a PC and see if the songs will play - if they do, save them to PC, reformat your card (my computer -> right click on card name -> format) and then put them back on your phone. Unfortunately if they wont play on PC either, the chances are they have been corrupted and you may have to contact your download source for a refund or new copies.
If after trying these options you are still stuck, try a) a mates memory card in your phone, and b) your memory card in a mates phone. If a works and b doesnt, contact your memory card supplier. If b works and a doesnt, then contact your phone manufacturer.
Hope this helps and isnt too confusing - Chris.
