Children feeding coins into the radio's CD slot can cause blown fuses, lights to stay on (both interior and exterior), and can ruin what was once a perfectly good radio.

My daughter fed our cd player some change thinking it was a piggy bank and shorted everything out! My lights were staying on and all kind of malfunctions were happening. We took all the change out, replaced fuses, and put everything back together. Everything works ok now, even the radio but not the cd player.

Electrical problems and blown fuses eventually traacked to coins in the radio.

Needed to replace the radio entirely the first time, and the clock light stopped working. The second time, the horn kept blowing, they were able to shake out the money and reinstall the radio.

had it fixed, but should have just bought a new radio because it wouldn't work when it heated up
