Re: how to program the emergency rd button on IC-F43TR
First do you have the correct software? Second do you have the correct programming cable? If the first two are OK you are half way there. Open the program and download the radios info to the program, it's that little computer icon. Click on "common settings", you will then see "key & display" click on that. You should have a small window with all the buttons including the red one. I hope this helps.

This sounds very much to me like a power supply problem.
If I understand your question correctly, the radio will turn on but when transmitting it shuts itself shuts off. This is usually caused by a poor connection to your battery. Although it is possible to show 12v using a voltmeter, there may not be enough connection when putting the circuit under load. (25 watts is a considerable load)
I would inspect both positive and negative connections (pay particular attention to the crimped lugs) , clean and lubricate them and give it another shot.
Here is a link to Trojan battery explaining in detail the importance of clean battery terminals.
We had the same problem with our Uniden Oceanus failing to communicate with our GPS. What the problem was, was that our VHF didn't recognize the NMEA sentences transmitted from our "ancient" GPS. We ended up buying a Standard Horizon cp180 chartplotter. PRESTO! Our DSC capability materialized.
Your 76CSx is newer than our Magellan was, so before you take on the task of a $400 chartplotter purchase, just make sure your BAUD rate is set to 4800. This adjustment alone could make your GPS work with your ICOM.
I had the same problem and traced it to a bad connection between flex cables and boards.It seems the SQL signal from the Rx board is not reaching the processor on the front panel. Check all connections (reseat all cables) and try again.
The MIC is available with the cord from Icom or me (847-746-0100)
It is not easy for the novice, it must be routed through the front panel and plugged in to the circuit board inside. Not impossible to do, just tedious. Also, my wild guess is about $50 to buy the mic, so, not worth it if you pay labor!
This applies to all battery powered radios. Take out the battery and measure the voltage to see if it is indeed charged. If it's not, then the fault is the charger or the battery or both. If the battery voltage shows that it is fully charged, then clean the terminals on the battery and on the radio with a pencil eraser to remove any corrosion. If still no joy, then look up in your user's manual on how to do a reset. If you don't have a manual, get on the ICOM website and download one.
