Hi guys, recently moved and haven't got shop up and most radio are in storage. I had the sony TFM-1000 out because it's so sensitive and good on batteries and I plugged a modern pair of earbuds into it and listened awhile. When I unplugged I had no audio coming from the speaker. I can plug an external speaker up and works fine. I guess I sprung the earphone jack. Is there anyway of fixing this without taking it apart? I don't have most of my tools and a place to work on it. I need an easy fix if possible..thanks for reading...Alan

Alan - I've inserted a small screwdriver into the earphone jack and most of the time it was sufficient to get the speaker working again. - Mark

thanks, I'll give that a try..be glad when the shop is finished, this is crazy not being able to get to my tools, except for my electrician tools only because I'm wiring it myself..that old 25 cent sony works mighty fine. It had fallen before I bought and cracked it in several places but it still works good, looks like hell though..thank you, Alan

Alan - Glad that you got the radio working as I've found that Sony made high quality transistor radios, which is one reason they are so valued by collectors! - Mark
