I explained this on the wrong header. My friend blew the final and I have replaced it with a new one. Also replaced blown power diode and have unit powering up and functioning except....1/10 of a watt is the only reading I am getting on transmit (Should be 5 to 15 watt). I cannot find any board layouts to determine what is what so, I am flying blind. Bias resistors or electrolitics????

Re: No transmit after blown final was replaced.
I tried to answer this the first time you posted :). If the finals got burned that bad I found that the bias resistor sometimes will get a burned foil and not make good connection. Also 1/10 watt sounds like the driver isn't amplifying from the buffer. Might want to check for burns on the foil all around the final stages, including where the antenna connector mounts to the board. Don't believe the caps are blown but as a last resort.... Its really hard to troubleshoot without the radio on the bench . Good luck. Tom

If you have to ask about the difficulty, then you probably lack the skill to do the job. The 4 pin fan header is usually for the CPU fan and the 3 pin one is usually for case cooling. The extra pin is for speed control of the CPU fan (to cut noise) If the 4 pin fab fails on the 4 pin header then the fan has probably failed, because the 3 pin one works.
If fuse has been blown means power capacity of the subwoofers exceeded the actual power transmitted.Subwoofers capacity cant hold on to the actual power transmitted.If you replace a new fuse check first if internal circuit was not damaged .When a fuse blown out its an indication that something wrong happened within the circuit.Check first subwoofer line if there was short circuit using a tester.Select OHMS mode and try to check both lines.If no movement it means you have it check to a service technician to fix.
There is a good chance you could have blown your final transistor. It could also be something is no malfunctioning in your mic. Is it on frequency? Hook it up to a frequency counter and make sure channel 19 reads 27.185. If it is your final transistor it blew for a reason. Most likely it got hot from a high SWR. 1-1:5 is the goal and no higher than 2. If it he SWR is higher then 2 the check your coax cables and adjust your antenna. Good luck.
Firts you have to check for carrier.For this you need an swr meter.2) Check continuity between the pl259 tip and antenna.3) Check for modulation (voice) if all of the above are OK. 4) Check if your display changes to transmit when you press the mike. IF all fails,then try another mike.
I am assuming you have called out for a radio check and not gotten a reply, or even better tested it with friends radio. Just because the meter doesn't mover doesn't mean that its not transmitting.
So as long as you tested it with another radio, and it is not transmitting it could be any number of things. If you have never had antenna tuned so the swr is low, or your swr was high for a long time, your final transistor is most likely blown.
TX switching transistor could be blown, trace could be gummed up.
If your ant light is coming on, the is a problem with your antenna. Could be disconnected, and that can lead to a blown final.
At any rate, your problem most likely requires a tech. Take it to a repair shop.
Not knowing what kind of equipment you have, its hard to say, but .10 watt? Sounds like the buffer or driver also got involved. Usually you get 1/4-1/2 watt to the driver on a stock radio. I would also check the bias resistors like you suggested. Also check for burnt foil around the final you replaced. Good just be a slightly damaged circuit. Let me know if this helps. Tom
Initially, pls confirm that there is modulation (transmit audio). The reason I asked is if IC4 (TA7222P) is blown, then the radio would have no audio amplifier which would explain no receive audio. Additionally, the final and pre-final (TR15 & 15) gets is modulated TX+12 through D8 from T1 which in turn is the output of IC4 through C48.
