I looked at the schematic. I'm no tech. But the SW and AM band signals travel through a cable that's inside the radio, one of those computer cables that probably goes from PC board to PC board.

There may be a small chance a connector got oxidized or loosened. If you take the radio apart I'd try wiggling / spraying cleaner on the connectors before digging deeper into the radio. Just by looking at the schematic, it seems to be the 'backbone' of the radio for everything but FM. It's a massive black line in the middle of the schematic with labelled connections going off of it.

As for FM, I have no idea why it wouldn't work. Maybe a zapped transistor?

Perhaps one of the guys here who are techs, or a lot better at this kind of thing than I am could take a look at the schematic and give you an idea of what may be wrong with your radio. It's easy to find using Google (forgot the link).

I wish I could be of more help, as it seems like a cool radio, but maybe someone else here can.

Good luck, man.
