Autotuner problem with Kenwood TS=450SAT

When using the built in autotuner on my Kenwood ts-450SAT when I push the tuner button it clicks in for a fraction of a second and shows a perfect match on the SWR meter. I can then change the frequency and bypass the autotuner and when I transmit the swr still shows a perfect match. I know the antenna is not resonant at that frequency but the SWR meter still shows a perfect match ratio 1 to 1. The autotuner does not roam around at all on any frequency but just gives a quick click and shows a perfect match everytime. Can anyone tell me what is wrong here and how to fix it? Thanks for any advice on this.

Kenwood TS-2000 Power up fails


You will likely have to do a reset on the radio. The method to do this is hard to find in the manual. I have inserted it below. It usually works for me. Doing a full reset will reset EVERYTHING. It is essentially a last ditch attempt to get the radio going again. I hope this helps

PARTIAL RESET
Perform a Partial Reset if a key or control does not
function according to the instructions in this manual.
The following data is NOT erased by performing a
Partial Reset.
• Memory channel data
• Menu settings
• Antenna tuner preset data
• ANT 1/ANT 2 data.
Reset the transceiver by pressing [A/B]+ POWER
ON.
• "HELLO" appears on the display.
FULL RESET
Perform a Full Reset if you want to erase all the data
in all the memory channels. In addition, this function
resets all the settings that you customized, to the
factory defaults (i.e.- menu settings, antenna tuner
preset data, etc.).
Reset the transceiver by pressing [A=B]+ POWER
ON.
A confirmation message appears when performing
the Full Reset. Press the [A=B] key to proceed.
Otherwise, press any other key to cancel the Full
Reset and return to normal operation.
When you perform the full reset:
• "HELLO" appears on the display.
• All frequencies, modes, memory data and AT
preset data are set to the factory default values
(refer to "INITIAL SETTINGS", above).

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.

Kenwood TS-450S won't load on new 20M dipole.


Surely you've checked connections, etc.----could balun have gone bad? Also are you using an external tuner? Lots of MFJ tuners will "screw up" once in a while. Open it up and inspect it
