I have a pioneer receiver, but it is not for a car. I am not getting any fm reception. I don't have any antenna connected. I have one antenna wire. Will that help?

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. What is the model of the receiver?What type of location are you in (urban, suburban, rural)? Ie: How far are you from the stations you're trying to pick up?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Pioneer deh-1600. Suburban location. I am able to get radio stations on a portable radio on the same location.
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.
Are you using the antenna wire that came with it?Does any other source work (cd, dvd, tv, etc)?Have you tried turning off the stereo mode (mono fm) and see if it picks up anything stronger that way?

I solved my own problem. Please refund $11 charged to my card.
