Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I had a similar problem on my 706 MK1. The problem was corroded connections on the white power connector at the rear, When on tx the voltage drop across this connector was great enough to switch the radio off. try cleaning/re-seating this connector

Also, if you haven't yet replaced your power supply, try just running at lower power, or f'r instance 10 watts a.m. and see if it works. That will test all the transmit functions while drawing less current from your supply. If you're patient, you can meter the voltage at the radio's input terminal as you increase power output and see the output power level at which your input voltage drops. But assuming you've got a 20-amp supply that hasn't died, it's likely that you've got a loose or corroded connection, even inside the big Molex plug on the rear of the rig.

Sounds to me like your power supply isn't able supply enough current for the radio when it transmits. The 706 needs 20A to transmit. The radio will cut out as described if it's not getting enough current.

I think your power supply is not rated high enough, Try using a 20 amp power supply.
