Problem with a Kenwood TS 2000 Amateur Radio Transceiver

Fault description: About 2 years ago, the rig started off by randomly turning itself OFF any time from 2 hours after initial power on, as time progressed the fault became more frequent and time to switch-off dropped down to less than 5 minutes recently. And until recently I could switch the rig back on, after waiting a minute or two and it would often perform OK.

However; once the self switch off time progressed down to less than 3 to 5 minutes as noted above, the rig would refuse to operate correctly, in that it would come back on, on a different ban or a memory frequency, or, on the alternative VFO, (that is if it were initially on VFO A , when switched back on it would come back on VFO B). I have checked the Lithium memory support battery, it is OK at 3.1 Volts.

The rig had also started having difficulties with the Processor in & out gain settings and mike gain settings not being stable & repeatable! I suspect all part of the same problem. It (the rig) has never been fiddled with at all just used as is out of the box, although on SSB it never made better than 50 Watts out this however never was a worry to me!

73s I have heard of similar problems and some were heating related. the best is to check if your rig is heating up causing it to switch off and lose memory when switched back on. I have a buddy who had an unusual experience where he actually dropped frequencies so low that he could pick up ordinary radio frequency and also go into bands like 27mhz and 25mhz. But once switched off, the rig worked normal again. If you are experiencing heat problems then i suggest you put in a fan and remove all dust from inside the rig. You could probably also be having problems with power supply either internal or external. If all else fails, refer to a good repair shop this type of radios are very sensitive.

I have a KENWOOD TS-940SAT HF Transceiver that powers up with the TX indicator on, no power output and no receive.


Very little information about the situation of the transceiver is provided, it might be a complex one. The Kenwood TS-940SAT features a built-in automatic antenna tuner covers the amateur bands 160 through 10 meters. It is advisable for you to reinstall the transceiver and follow the right set up step to see if it works out eventually.

I cant talk on any frequency over 148.000 anyone know why?!


This is an Amateur (Ham) Radio 2-meter Transceiver. It will only transmit on the 2-meter Amateur band (144-148 MHz) but has expanded receiver coverage from 136-174 MHz which includes Public Service and Commercial 2-Way Radio bands. Please note that an Amateur License is required to operate on the 2-meter Amateur Band.

Kenwood TS-2000 low UHF RF output


Hi Robert,

Lightning damage is disarsterous for anything electronic, let alone a 2-way, I believe that there is something else that's been overlooked and it could be the RF switch on the board.

This unit needs to go and get a radio doctors opinion, else the radio may eventually die a slow death.

Kenwood is a good brand and if you paid good money to buy it, you need to spend a reasonable price to have it checked out.

That's my only advice for you.

Regards,
Peter

Front panel turns off


Have you performed a FULL reset on the TS-2000?
To perform a full reset:

With the power off press and hold down the A=B button and with the other hand turn on the TS-2000.
After that you will have to press the A=B one more time. The radio will reset itself,
and the display will show 14.000 MHz in the main band, and 144.000 MHz in the sub band.

Please let me know if it worked for you.

Is the Kenwood TS680S a solid state transceiver?


solid state means transistors or ics but no tubes, if it has tubes it will have air holes in the case where you can see the tubes light up when it is on.Im pretty sure its a solid state rig unless it is really old as most are now solid states and have been for years.
