    I have a G-3 shortwave receiver that has gone lame. It will not recognize when i change the batteries. I put in new batts and the radio shows that the batts are dead and the radio turns itself off. I have tried two new sets of batts from two separate packages. Can anyone give me an idea what is going on and can it be fixed? Thank you

    Here is a link to something you might find interesting about the G3... Grundig Globe Traveler G3 | radiojayallen

    You might try shorting the battery + and - connections with a piece of wire. Do you have the A/C Adapter? you might try plugging it in to see if it will clear its mind!

    Good luck!

    I wish i had the ac adapter but it is long gone. I will try the shorting the battery connectors. Thank you
