Re: Vastelec V-FM02 stopped working...
I was having intermittant problems with mine:
Pocket radio would pick up signal but car radio would not.
After unplugging everything, and letting it rest a few, it would work properly; 1/2 mile range nice and clear. And then it would not go more than a few feet..
After reading the suggestions here, I went over both boards: cold solder joints. Redid all those myself, and checked the ribbon cable connections.
Not as tight as I'd like, so I added a dot of hot glue to make sure they stayed put.
Flawless. No problems, great range, crystal clear. :D:D:D
So, from my experience anyway, it looks like the main troubles with this lot of boards are the cold solder joints and wiggly ribbon cable connections.
