Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

No sound from my Sony XDR-DS12ip DAB radio/docking station.

Purchased in Australia and worked fine for 4 years. Moved back to the UK and although all available DAB and FM stations tune in successfully, there's is no sound from the speakers. Put into storage for 18 months, tried again and it worked fine. Switched off but when switched on again, same problem, no sound. Be grateful for any ideas

    Apart from the suggestion from Mai Lor to buy a new one, no other solutions I'm afraid. I've stored it away again having practically given up trying to fix it myself. Shame really as it is a good system. Might try it again and if any joy I'll post results. Good luck with yours. Martin.

    An old thread, but it came up when I searched for an answer to the same problem. I fixed mine by pulling it apart and resoldering the various pins that are in a long double line on the main board. I reckon the problem is a cold joint on one of them. Works fine again now.

SOURCE: speakers won't work when Ipod is docked

The problem is that Atlec Lansing used a low quality (piece of ****) plug/interface for the dock. If you pull the top of the ipod forward while it is pressed fully onto the docking station, you'll get a surprise. It will work. This problem stumped me for days. Now, the next question is how much tension is the proper amount not to degrade the cheap plug further or damage the ipod itself.

Cheers,
Jeff

SOURCE: SONY PERSONAL DOCKING STATION XDR-DS12iP...

I'm assuming you have set the brightness to High and nothing changed - the screen still dims. This is a side-lit screen , if it fades is because the led that provides the light either fails when under power or the power source is not delivering enough of it.
In either case it's a manufacturing defect that cannot be repaired by a customer, the unit will have to be sent to the service center or simply replaced by the seller.

Why will my radio new 3120 not pick up dab stations at all really tune and all I get is radio 2 have tried for a week to get magic fm thank you


If you have replaced a normal car radio with a DAB then your existing aerial is not suitable due to the required frequency range. You need a DAB aerial for cars. There are many types available, internal or external. Don't bother with converters as this will only give a marginal boost to the fm aerial.

Dab signal


I suggest you scout around the neighbours for a DAB you can borrow to test the signal in your usual place. Your own radio could be faulty.
One of my DAB radios worked fine on FM even though one day it just stopped working on DAB for no apparent reason. The board to repair it is priced not to sell...

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

Why, when listening to DAB radio in the car (professionally fitted) is some of the speech occassionally repeated ?


Hi,

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

Although the DAB signals are less prone to interference, they're currently weaker than FM signals, which can cause problems if you're in a fringe reception area .Please check into this. Moreover DAB radio stations are "compressed", so that lots of stations can be squeezed into the available bandwidth. Because of this compression, some stations on DAB are not in as good a quality and you are getting repetition issues. Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

DAB radio model Sharp FV-DB1E


This is SwannerX and I have solved the problem by locating the DAB radio receiver to a higher position ( some 6ins. higher only ) and orienteering the aerial in an opposite direction.
All 25 stations now tune O.K. and signal quality still reads in the high 90's and signal strength shows 9-10 bars. This is not substantially any more , but it has done the trick!!!
I am still very puzzled why it would not work again in the original position where it has worked well for many years.
Obviously DAB requires a good strong signal as I am living very close to the transmitter at Mounteagle in the Black Isle and the set is upstairs in the house to achieve the highest signal into the set's whip aerial.
Another annoying query I can give you is this :- Every time I do a full AutoTune operation on the DAB receiver , it ALWAYS comes ON tuning BBC Asian 1st. so that station comes up as a 'Favorite' on the Radio's screen. No matter how many other stations I select and listen to for at least 20secs. say, the BBC Asian one STILL is listed as a FAV.
Is this a peculiarity of the Sharp design or a function of the transmission system?
Maybe this BBC Asian is on the first freq. the DAB Radio scans, but I would have thought it would come ON every time with the last station which was selected before it was switched OFF.
What do you think ???
