Radio Troubleshooting

The tech that I talked to said that they would charge $15 to look at a unit sent in to them and try to tell you what is wrong with it. He said that some times there are obvious things and sometimes not. They have email also and I will give you all the info below.

They have been in business for 33 years, so they do not appear to be a fly by night business.The tech said that the base price runs about $100 plus parts and shipping back. They take credit cards too.

Some things to do before sending the radio for repairs:


  1. Check the antenna and the connections. Usually this is a big cause of the problem for not working.
  2. Look at the speakers - the old paper (I think that he said the cone piece) gets dried out and just plain decays, and then no sound...
  3. If you can hear anything from the radio, or if you can get 1 or 2 stations, then the speakers and/orthe antenna may be bad or have a loose connection...

Be sure to check them carefully
