Re: Strange Issue with Radio
While I have never experienced this, it sounds normal, sort of...
I think the ON/OFF function on this radio, like so many other electronics, does not actually apply and remove power, but instead tells the unit to wake up or sleep. While asleep, all outward signs of life are turned off, but the internal clock, computer, etc. are still at work, and ready to go. The radio also draws some power even when OFF.
So, it sounds likely that when you connected the power to the radio circuit it woke up, began playing music, and then remembered that it was supposed to be asleep and turned off the music.
At least, I think that's what it did... others may have better information.
