    I have a radio that acts like it has vary weak batteris in it but
    that is not the case. My question is can capacitors cause the radio to
    power up weakly and then shut back off like the batteries are almost
    dead? The radio is not is some type of auto shutdown for protection. I
    can put freash batteries in the radio and it will turn off fairly
    quick a second or two. If I put batteries in the thing and let it sit
    overnight the thing will power up for 10 seconds or so and the lcd
    display will come on dimly. The battery low indicator on the lcd panel
    stay lit all the time too. I though that it might have a bad cap in it
    somewhere.

    Thanks

    I would think the radio has some type of shorting component(s) in it rather
    than just a simple cap problem, according to how you are describing
    things... It would require to be troubleshot by an experienced tech.

    Sony did not work out very well for me. They sent my radio back
    untouched. I cleaned the corrosion out as they said that was the
    problem. It did not help at all. They sent the radio back to me and it
    was missing screws from the back of the case. I'm still in the same
    boat. I was looking at using Radiolabs but I haven't seen too much
    feedback on them. I would really like to find a place I know that I
    can trust and that will have no problems repairing the radio.
