ICF-PRO80 Fixing

Many thanks for the revised version of the manual. It is far better legible than any other copy available in the Internet.
Without it, I hadn't be able to fix a nasty issue appearing a couple of years after recapping my old ICF-PRO80 (replacing that infamous short-lived SMD electrolitic capacitors used by Sony at that time): The display was blank, with no reception.
When recapping, I used Kiwa's upgrade kit (http://www.kiwa.com/PRO80.html), which was (and is) fine and not expensive at all.
But, as a side effect of replacing C243, an adjacent via was damaged (the one marked "32" on PLL Board Layout). The via failure interrupted supply to the microcomputer board, caausing the malfunction of the receiver.
However, the effect was not immediate. It took some time to develop, so I had no clue on what the problem could be. With the manual, it took me just three hours to pinpoint and fix the issue.

Thanks again!

Sony Pro80 serial 116341

Anyone have any idea how old this radio is?

It had been languishing non-working on a book shelf. I had loved the radio when I got it. I had someone fix it and he brought it back to life.


re: Sony Pro80 serial 116341

I'd say than less than 25 years. Mine has SN 106310. I bought it in NY during honeymoon, on September 1988.

Sony Pro80 manual

Thank you very much for the manual.

Using the radio is a little less intuitive than my 7600 or 2010. But I love it anyway.


Would you believe a friend of my son just gave me one of these. It had belonged to an uncle. It seems to work OK - I wonder if I should get the re-capping done anyway just to avoid expected electrolyte leakage damage and while this repair is still available. I bet this would give me a dandy receiver for the next 20 years. Thoughts?

It's worth the cost/effort. This radio stands alone in terms of features, performance and portability. And that was 20 years ago!
