DAB displays stations but won’t play them

Tue Mar 09, 2021 12:27 pm

Hi

I have a 64 plate. The DAB displays stations but when I click on them, nothing happens.

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

The FM radio works fine

First let's get the Duh causes out of the way: Is the volume turned up?

If you have an SDA do you know how to access the service menu?

In the menu is a system test folder. You can check the operation of the DAB tuner in there

Also, where are you based? Is DAB signal good?
In mine I can usually pick up DAB but occasionally it just goes quite, usually in built up areas.
DAB is all or nothing so if the signal is weak you just get nothing unlike FM/AM where you will get something with interference.

Hi

It’s MMCS. The fm stations come through crystal clear so I don’t think it’s a signal issue. It’s just really weird that it lists DAB stations but also says ‘no data’ and won’t play any DAB stations.

It’s got me stumped

If FM's fine and DAB isn't, it sounds rather like a signal issue. Are you near any of the grey areas on this map?

There are very few areas of the UK where FM is unavailable (mostly Snowdonia and Scottish Highlands), but DAB can be much more patchy - even here in the Chilterns (green on the map) it drops in and out occasionally (I guess as it switches between Oxford and London transmitters).
