Tom,
I can't put my hands on the manual, but I fiddled with my DE17 and found that when the radio is off the + and - keys in the top right change the sleep timer duration.
Love the radio except for the 9kz AM tuning. Does any one know how to switch it to 10?
Have a great weekend every one.

I wrote to Degen asking for an English language manual. Reply is below.

Hello Paul,

I am sorry that we don't have English Manual for this model as it is only for domestic sale.

For any further enquiry, please feel free to contact us.:)

Regards,

Does anyone who owns the Degen DE17 know how to get the FM band to tune from 64 mhz? It looks like from the Japanese handbook that you rock the FM/MW switch but I have tried that but it doesn't seem to work it just goes to MW. Does anyone have the answer? Apart from that great little radio on all bands. Wendy

I note the makers reply to Paul,if it's only for domestic sale why are controls in English & not Chinese?, I have a Kchibo D55,keys labeled Chinese but English manual supplied

Bob Balser

Just received this from Degen Hong Kong.It seems it depends who answers your email,

Dear Bob,

As this model is only available for sales in China market, so am wondering where did you purchase this radio? Can you give us some information so we can forbid this wholesaler in China, thanks!

For the English IB of DE17, I will ask our team to specially translate it for you but please allow us some time.

Regards,

Customer Service

True to Degens word I now have an official 17 page English manual

Bob Balser

Everybody sorted out their problems? No English manual wanted now?

Alex

Hello Bob,

I'd love a copy of the English manual if you're willing to share!

Just purchased the DE17 off eBay, would be handy to have it in English :)

My email is alaxitoo (at) gmail (dot) com

Thank you :)

With the radio OFF you long press(5 secs) the FM/MW button, 87 or 64 appears on the screen.

Bob Balser

Well the good news was it arrived Tuesday,bad news it became faulty after about 10 minutes, AM & SW stopped working only FM working,replacement being sent

Alex

Bob: Same thing just happened to me (but not as fast as you!)... went to change batteries, 10 centimetre drop on a bench... now not working.

Oy :/

Bob Balser

Replacement arrived still working after 5 days, sounds like you may have a bad solder joint Oy which the drop highlighted.It's easy to take apart, one screw on the back cover & two very small ones in the battery tray then ease the back off with a thin blade,the ferrite aerial bar was loose on my first one but the journey from China to the UK may have caused that

KEITH

If you still have problem with the AM range,long press the battery button when the radio is off & 09 or 10 will appear,when you change batteries it will revert to factory setting

Bob Balser

Does anyone know the "secret" functions available for the Kchibo KK D-202 when button 6 is pressed
