Grunding mini 100 PE adjusting tuning...

Post by danr.. » Mon, 23 Jan 2006 23:10:01

The tuning on my mini 100 PE is way off... I got one as a throw-around
radio...

The tuning is off enough, that I miss a much needed frequency.  While I
don't expect to get the tuning anywhere near 100% correct, is there a
way that I can take a apart the radio and try to adjust the tuning at
least somewhat?

Based upon the website in the below URL, I have been able to adjust the
radio's tuning:

On the other hand, when closing the radio, I snapped off the red
battery wire and the antenna wire!  Is there a picture or schematic of
the back of the inside of the radio available, so that I can figure out
where to solder the battery wire? I'm pretty sure I know where the
antenna goes...  (Next time, I need to be more patient!)

I also lost the two screws under the battery compartment... :-(

Are you sure your soldering iron is big enough?

Look for a rail connected to the + end of an electroytic cap.
