I had been a big advocate of the Grundig 750 on this board and elsewhere. I had used mine with some frequency on my desktop for casual listening, unfortunately just yesterday I was sitting there,tapping on the keyboard, when the power went out. I reset and unplugged from main back to battery, but still no success,the omnipresnet beeping sounded but no volume. I picked up the radio and turned it over to take out the batteries. that is when I saw the small amount of smoke coming from the rear right grill, plus the unmistakable smell of buring plastic. I am actually very sad, I have only had this radio a little under 6 months, and used it about 3x weekly for a few hours. this is unacceptable in every sense. if I was not home I am concerned this thing could have burnt the whole place down! Could a power surge cause this? any other thoughts, I never completed the warranty assuming the grundig name would allow for at least 5+ years of use. Please be careful with this, and I am sorry for promoting a product that obviously has some serious issues. Any thoughts on who I should contact regarding this?

LOL! So instead of reading the manual, you ripped the radio apart and permanently destroyed the buzzer. Great way of "do before think."

All you have to do to disable the buzzer is hold "0" on the keypad for one second while the radio is turned off. The display will show "OFF" to confirm that the beep tone has been disabled.

Manuals are not meant to be thrown away with the box, they're written for a reason. ;)

Apparently early Sat 750 units don't have the beep disable feature.
