Initially and the simplest probably would be to use the units without enabling the CTCSS or any form of encoding (turn this feature OFF). In the meantime, will check the specs and post if anything concrete comes up.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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

I have a Yaesu FT-415 and the same problem. My original battery is a SONY 1220-VJ2H (solder tabs, blue insulation on the outer edge and two stick-on paper insulaters) and is soldered in to the Control PC board (mounted vertically). I'm going to get a new battery and hopefully am brave enough to get the soldering iron to the board. It looks like you have to unsolder the board from the speaker to lift it up enough to get at the solder tabs on the battery, luckily I have access to a Pace soldering station with a vacuum pump. I'll hopefully try this next week and get back to you all.
