Two things I know can cause this:

- Failed buttons - the buttons that change the station get sticky or fail. Some users here unsoldered them and replaced them with new ones, and it solved the problem

- Problem with tuner. Capacitors in the tuner can fail - diagnosing this takes some knowledge and skill, as well as the circuit diagram. Sierra Electronics will fix this for a flat rate of around $100. This is what happened to mine (same problem you describe), and they fixed it.

Same thing on my aspy, wd40'd the switch flicked it abit and presto any station your heart desires. Hope it's as simple as that for you too.
