Question about Radio Communications
Radio was plugged in backwards , with 3 amp fuse inline . I replaced d23 , and fuse ,brought it back to life .I tried several ( known good ) mics .Still no rx / tx .
Altho the rx / tx light does switch back and forth showing rx / tx
D23 is the reverse protection diode and it shorting is the primary reason your fuse blew. As you posted, power was applied in reverse, hence other components would also fail. Pls check:
1. D22 - 9.1V Zener Diode
2. TR23 (2SC1096) 9 Volts regulator
3. D19 - 5.1 Zener Diode
4. IC4 (TA7222) - Audio Amp
5. TR14 (2SC2029B/10) - Finals
6. TR15 (2SC2028B/20) - Driver
7. Most capacitors over 220uF (like C123, C114 & C112)
Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
