Hi sorry to hear that.
Does the radio completely turn off?
Also how old is your radio and are you running it on batteries?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I bought it on 29 September last for my wife. It cost me €21.30, less than what I am now paying for an answer!
I am running it on batteries. I don't see how it can be run any other way.
It turns off completely after about five minutes.

Thank you

Thanks for the information.
In this case you have one of two issues, either the batteries are in need of a recharge or replacement.
If you are sure the batteries are fresh, then the issue is a failed electronic component(a defective part inside.
In this case your radio is still fully covered and you should be able to simply exchange that one for another where you purchased that one;-)
Grundig units are usually very reliable and yours shows no major fault with the ones sold just a few returns;-)
I will stick with you until you have a new radio, in case you need me further so Please rate my service to you, kindly before closing this page you will still have access to me and you can contact me anytime
simply by replying to this message at no additional cost;-)
Thank you and have a great day!
