I have a grundig mandello 4 radiogram. Up until Tuesday all

Resolved Question:

I have a grundig mandello 4 radiogram. Up until Tuesday all was well. Suddenly the v.h.s frequency and short wave stopped working completely though I do have a limited medium wave reception. Do you know where I can get a repair?
Thank you.

Hi Michael. Have just contacted 'shortwave'. They do not do, nor have they EVER done, repairs for broadcast receivers! So..any more useful suggestions?

Look forward to your reply.

Hi Andrew, thank you so much for your communication. Rest assured, I SHALL be leaving you a rating, and if the link you supplied me with turns out to be fruitful it will be a good one. However, after the last debacle where the retailer was totally confused as to why he had been selected, I would prefer to wait before commenting. It can only be to your advantage & I WILL get straight back to you, I promise. Hope you understand ..once bitten etc.

Thanks again.

No problem at all.
I prefer to use the forums as you can talk to the people that actually work on these.
Let me know if they cannot help you.

heard back from Jellyfishaudio.com! They are prepared to take a look at my machine so thank you very much! Not only is Worthing where I work, but the last chap said that there was nowhere else he could find to send it so well done you. Thanks Andrew, you saved your company's reputation!
