Technical Issues is one of the collectibles in Alan Wake 2. It is one of Pat Maine's radio shows.


Pat: Yes, I’m pressing the button but it’s not broadcasting. That green light is supposed to be red.

Norman: Which light?

Pat: This one here. Donna’s grandson wrote down instructions for me but I can’t for the life of me remember where I put them.

Norman: You sure you’re not on the air?

Pat: Yeah green means off, red means on. Or was it- No, that’s right. I need a red light here.

Norman: Have you tried just mashing all these buttons?

Pat: Oh, raspberries, that’s not- Which button did you press?

Norman: This one right here.

Norman: Nope, that wasn’t it.

Pat: I’m gonna call Donna’s grandson.

Tapio: Hello?

Pat: Tapio? Sorry. I misdialed.

Tapio: No, you didn’t. I was still on the line.

Pat: Can we get Tapio off the line? I need to call Donna’s grandson.

Tapio: Must be all this rain botching up your connection. If it keeps up that bunker out back could flood again. A girl drowned in that bunker last time it flooded.

Norman: No, that girl drowned in Cauldron Lake.

Tapio: Wrong. That was the Anderson girl. Different girl.

Pat: Can we please focus on making the green light red?

Pat: Yes! That’s the one. Okay, let’s press that and see if it-



The audio for two of Tapio's lines are incorrectly switched with each other in-game: the line where he mentions the girl who drowned in the flooded bunker and his reply about the "Anderson girl." The subtitles for the lines still play in the right order.
