Hi Guys

Hoping you may be able to help out with this problem. Recently I purchased said item with known fault that tape didnt work and door jammed in open position and the inevitable rebonding of glass panels these are now resolved after a total strip and I mean a total strip and clean internally all PCB's removed/refitted.  Any way to the point of this plea, I have working CD, working Tape "albeit a bit slow and fluttery"  all functions appear normal on control and display panels with relevent lights lighting for each function. However no radio on FM or AM,  just no signal hissing and its even louder if the ariel lead is plugged in, when i "SEARCH" on control it dosent locate any stns throughout the frequency ranges AM/FM

Any Pointers would be much apprechiated

Regards Maurice

Did the radio work before you took it apart?

I suspect you just broke some connector. The multiwire connectors in these units won't take much use & abuse before the wires break loose from the connectors. They have only a single strand of copper, and the connectors pinch them in a fork of sorts. The wires get a weak spot there and break easily.

It's easy in principle to take the connector apart, cut a couple of mm from the wires, reinstall them and recrimp the connector in a vise or something, but you have to be very careful as the wires are all separate and might not even be in the same order in the connector at the other end of the loom.

Alternatively, bad solder somewhere that got disturbed.

it could also be a bad contact at one of the plug in connectors or maybe you missed reconnecting something. It has happened to me before.
