SOURCE: Yaesu FT-50R battery drain

I have the same radio.

Does the radio work? Could it be the battery that's getting hot?

SOURCE: Yaesu Ft-50 hard to turn on

The rubber power button is impregnated with carbon and when pressed, it makes contact with two points on the printed circuit board, turning on the radio. This button eventually wears out and needs to be replaced, which is a rather easy process.

I've performed the operation four times - takes about 15 minutes. The button is available from Yaesu.

I also tried "repair kits" for these buttons which are supposed to replace the conductive surface. Both times, they failed again within a couple of weeks.

The upside is the new button is not as quite as tall as the original and requires depressing it below the surface of the case to switch, which prevents accidently turning off the radio.

Good luck, and 73

SOURCE: My Yaseu FT-50R doesn't stay on. I have to remove

Darned resistive silicone contacts! This link will help you:http://www.sdarc.net/forum/printer_friendly_posts.asp?TID=828 There are kits available that "rebuild" the carbon conductive layer, should cleaning not help. It's like (car) rear defogger repair kit material. I haven't had long term success with the two part repair kits, myself. I didn't read the link myself, but cleaning with alcohol often works. If not, try acetone. If that doesn't work, a conductive kit or sticky aluminum tape may help. If cleaning doesn't work, and replacement is available from Yaesu, order it! Darned these silicone contact pads! Same pads as most remote controls.

I just had my FT-50R repaired due to a overheat issue with a reverse polarity diode. When I asked Yaesu to alao check my Yaesu for the memory battery I was told by their top technican that the radio does not have a memory battery in it. I hope this helps.

The FT-50R is an extended receive, but dual band (UHF & VHF) amateur transceiver. It is capable of transmitting between approximately 144Mhz - 148Mhz VHF and 430Mhz - 450Mhz UHF.

Typically, the radio will provide an audible warning whenever attempting to operate outside of its intended range(s). The manual has a section on maximizing battery life, and can be downloaded below:

Yaesu FT-50R battery drain


scotwho, I personally do not know the radio you are asking about, but I do have many years working with radios in troubleshooting. What I am guessing is, if the heatsink gets hot, then whatever is connected to the heatsink has shorted out. Two main parts come to mind here, and that's the audio chip, and the transmitter output final/chip. Possibly the main IC (brain) that controls most everything, but I doubt that. The radio needs to go to a repair shop that can troubleshoot the damage/ and find an answer as to why it occurred. A lot of times the factory's do not use heatsink compound when they assemble the units, and after an x amount of time the part/parts will fail. 10cents worth of heatsink compound can make a radio last a few years longer.
Probably not the answer you wanted but I hope this helps,, let us know. Mechanic
