Early production samples of this radio tend to fail, a copper ribbon cable connecting the lower and the upper part of the radio will be bent repetitively over a very sharp edge of the lid. After a while, the copper ribbon cable connections are likely to break, some of the keys will become inoperational, sometimes this will happen even to the on/off - button. Rarely the signal ribbon cable will brake.

You might recognize the early ICF-SW100 sets by the copper connector, that can bee seen in the gap, in later models produced after autumn 1997, You see a black plastic cover over the connector and the lid mould has been changed.

You might try to repair Your set using a file to dull the sharp plastic edges where the connector will have to get past. There has been a Sony repair kit for these early models with a different lid mould.
