The title pretty much says it all. My Radio does not power up. My eyes suck and my hands aren't steady at all anymore. Would love to get this thing working again though. Anyone out there fixing them?

Thanks,

Howard

Might be a power supply problem?

Have you tried giving the connector a slight jiggle whilst powered on?

Hi Ronnie,

Yup. Tried a different supply also. My Touch has a wonky connector that you have to jiggle a little. Had it since day one.

Thanks,

Howard

I just sent mine to Oscar since it wasn't the power connector and verified power from power supply. So it was amp or something else. After looking at innards probably heat over time will cause systemic failure. No parts available so send it to Oscar. Build a RPI.

Thanks Earthbased. Can you give me a link for Oscar? I have 3 RPI's and love em, but nothing beats the sound in a compact format like the Radio :-)

JoeMuc2009 has fixed many players and posted help on how to repair some problems.

Here is a Radio thread that he started https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?108221-Dead-WiFi-on-SB-Radio
