3797Re: FIXED!: [Sangean803] Strange display on power up
- Apr 17, 2014I never really felt the DX-440 was that compelling or endearing a receiver, although I did buy one back in the 80s and have kept it alive ever since. The radio that really won my heart was the Grundig G5: it was so sensitive, was so selective, had such nice sound that it just bowled me over. At the time I bought a G5 I was using a Panasonic RF-2800 as my basic radio (I had used a Knight Star Roamer, a GE World Monitor, and a Kenwood R 5000 in the past). The G5 was in so many ways the best radio I had ever had. Why didn't they have something like this when I was a kid or a young adult (I started listening in the late 60s)?On Thursday, April 17, 2014 3:55 AM, Merchison Burke <merchison@...> wrote:
You may be able to apply some hot-melt glue to some point near the connector which would then prevent it from coming loose again.
I also have one of these radios but I am not emotionally attached to it.

Thank you SO Much! It was a loose ribbon cable -- Took off the top board (with the ferrite rod on it...)
exposing the lower board - pressed down on some connectors that connect to the display and voila!
Display back - this might be a connector that will need some attention in the future - but for now,
it works! Phew!
Am I the only one emotionally attached to these radios?
I think not.
