Faulty switch on FT 411e

The handy has a faulty on/off switch which works sometimes when I apply a bit of lateral pressure on it.
I would like to replace the switch and would appreciate a part No and place where they might have one.

How accessable is this switch ?? Could you use a pair of pliers to tighten any tabs on the switch itself? Could you put a dab of LIGHT machine oil into it?
Hope this helps

Yaesu ft-990 no receive or transmit

Lynn, SSB (Single SideBand) only applies to AM (Amplitude Modulation) transmission. There is no way to broadcast SSB in FM (Frequency Modulation) mode.

On my yaesu ft-757gx when I key up then speak the output goes to zero,the dial goes black sometimes relays click and the mode switches to lsb until the key is released.

Sounds like the power supply is faulty and dying when the transmitter demands current. Perhaps a loose connection or dirty relay contact.

Yaesu ft 101

Sounds like the 20m mixed frequency is slightly off tune in the front end and doesn't match the tuning knob setting. This likely needs a bit of tweaking of an oscillator to put it on the straight and narrow of the IF system.

  • You can open the radio up and clean the switch up a bit but it sounds like the switch may be worn. It's a simple on off push switch. You may just go to your local hardware store or electronics store and get a switch and solder it in.

Yaesu ft-270 power on err is displayed on lcd

This usually indicates a problem with the firmware, or the radio thinks that it is connected to a computer but it isn't. Basically, it is failing self test.

It might also be due to corrupted memory as well. You can reset the radio by popping the door off the bottom of the unit, and turning the switch marked backup off. Then apply power to the radio, and turn radio on. Everything has just been reset, and with a bit of luck, might begin to act like you would expect. The Backup switch turns the memory battery on and off. If it is dead, it may need to be replaced before the radio loses power again. See below for link to manual.

FT-10R will not turn off, the only way is to remove the battery

I t sounds as if you have a faulty on/of switch check it out with a meter or a bad connection around that area.
good luck John
