So recently my radio has been acting like it is posessed and I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue. Periodically it just changes the station. It actually goes down one station like if you turned the tuning knob down one notch. It only does it every once in a while though. Anyone else have this issue?

LOL yeah I'm sure cause that would cause it to go to the next preset, not down just one tenth.

WOW!!!! Mine does this too. It's only done it about 4 times and it hasn't happened since right around christmas time, but the radio kept changing itself one notch without me touching anything.

I dunno, but if mine did this I would spin the tuning knob a few times to be sure it wasn't hung mid-detent or anything silly like that. If it continued then I'd disconnect the battery for a few minutes to reset the system.

If it continued beyond that, and I was out of warranty, then I'd have the reason I need to replace the system :) :)

Well glad to hear that I am not the only one that this has happened to. I will try messing w/ the tuning knob and see what happens. I still have warranty till august, so I can always take it in, but I am sure they won't be able to duplicate it.
