Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

When it stops, does it shut off altogether, or does the sound stop but not the radio's power?

As for bringing it in for repair... what region are you in please? by zip code, or by town/city and state?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
just the sound stops. When I turn it on again, the sound starts, then stops.I'm in NYC 10021
Expert:  Russell H. replied 13 days ago.

OK. I am seeking a good shop to take a Grundig radio to in that region.

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Okay, waiting to hear where to go. Thank you.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 13 days ago.

There are no such Grundig Radio repair shops in NY that I can find.

There's one I've found by chance while searching, in Morton Grove IL.

Would you be willing to send out your radio to another location?

Is it an antique radio, with vacuum tubes in it?

Or is it a transistor radio?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Its a transistor radio.
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
My question is what the cost might be.
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Do you have the address or the cost idea?
Expert:  Russell H. replied 13 days ago.

Here's your answer (unless you are asking about JustAnswer cost?):

1. it's best to ask the service provider themself for the cost of repairing. And be sure to state up front when making initial phone call inquiries, that you have a Grundig Yacht-Boy transistor radio, not antique, not tube-based - and the model # of course.

2. here are several providers that would be appropriate to call and ask:
