Re: Fault on my Transceiver


You posted your concern as generic with no specific brand or model. Flashing displays can mean a variety of things to different makes. Some of which are:
1. Low battery. Low memory battery;
2. Error in programming;
3. Error in firmware;
4. Fatal error in self-test/diagnosis;
5. Major component defect detected; and/or
6. Out of range/band.

In the same token, corrective measures can likewise be anything:
a. Recharge/replace battery;
b. Reprogram/reload program;
c. Update firmware/clone;
d. Run diagnostics using an external device (often a PC);
e. Determine which is at fault (finals, VCO, PLL, voltage regulator, replace);
f. Tune back to standard freq.

Most often (but not always), it can be also be corrected by doing a reset of the radio which can be:
i. Pressing FUNC (or some other button) while powering up;
ii. Pressing a recessed/hidden reset button;
iii. Placing a temporary jumper/shorting two (2) points (internally on the logic board);
iv. Remove battery/power (including internal if any);
v. Pressing a sequence of buttons to enter MENU/SETUP mode.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Would appreciate also if you can specify brand/model/region.

Good luck and kind regards.

Yaesu 857D very poor audio out on SSB.

Dbl check your swr in am mode.. Ch your ssb power and mic gain default is 50 on both on hf .. If you use the mh-59 you will need to reduce the mic gain to 35 and it needs to be set for remote mic in the menu. Also the ssb needs to be set 2.5k wide with the ssb carrier zeroed both tx and rx

How can I program the Kenwood TM-G707 A/E transceiver to our new repeater with a REC. of 151.1225 TX of 159.015 with DPL of 172 and 134?

I believe that your transceiver requires a simple mod which involves removing a surface mount diode or resistor usually found in the front display head.This allows the device to operate out of the intended frequency band.You may Google Transceiver TM-G707 A/E Modific ations for further info.

Why does the tx light flash on my ftdx5000?

There are several things that can cause this.

1. Powered on with the mike keyed

2. Accessories plugged in the back

3. Power interrupted

To fix this leave the power on, UNPLUG the unit and wait for it to power drain. Turn the unit off plug it back in. If that does not take care of it, take the microphone off and any accessories and try again.

Why does my kenwood TH-K2 fm transceiver will not transmit

Users Manual (download if you don't have it)
You can inhibit the transmission to prevent unauthorized
individuals from transmitting, or to eliminate accidental
transmissions while carrying the transceiver.
1 Press [MENU].
2 Turn the Tuning control to select Menu No. 25 (TXI).
3 Press [MENU].
4 Turn the Tuning control to select "ON".
5 Press [MENU] to store the setting or [PTT] to cancel.

"TX INH" appears and an error beep sounds if the
transceiver tries to transmit while TX Inhibit is ON

Modify - open rx/tx for all more FQ


You have an Icom IC-4088SR HH radio, that much I can under stand, But the rest is confusing.

Modify - open rx/tx for all more FQ, is very cryptic, and doesn't make sense.

Please provide more info, the more info you provide the better we understand and the quicker we find a solution for you.

My transceiver yaesu ft-one can't received/monitor and transmit

I understand that You have a problem with the TX/RX. The problem with your radio is one that can't be solved with out actually looking at the radio on the bench. The only thing I can tell you is to either go to your local radio shop or send the unit to the factory to be serviced. One thought that does come to mind though is that your battery may not be working most rechargable batteries are only good for about 18 months. There may not be enough charge to operate the radio.

Motorola Talkabout T6500 will not transmit.

Are you sure the batteries are ok?, try to change the batery, check the radio battery contacts, verify if when you press the ptt, appear an icon on the display that correspond to TX function. Try to use an audio accesory to TX, if all this fail, you should replace it. Good luck
