    Not sure but has it sat unused for months? When has the internal memory battery been last replaced? If it sat for a long time it might also be the battery in the CPU. That board is located behind the display.

SOUNDS LIKE A COLD SOLDER JOINT OR A BAD COMPONNET WHEN IT WARMS UP THATS WHEN IT STARTS ..TAKE OFF THE COVER SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE SOLDER SIDE OF THE BOARD PUT POWER TO THE RADIO AND WHEN IT WARMS UP AND SHUTS DOWN TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF WOOD OR PLASTIC AND PROBE ALL THE SOLDER CONNECTIONS TO CHECK FOR A COLD SOLDER JOINT IT MAY BE GRAY IN COLOR MAY NOT.. SEE IF IT GOES ON AND OFF.. IF SO RESOLDER THAT SOLDER JOINT.......IF THIS DOES NOT WORK ....PICK UP SOME FREEZE SPRAY AND SPRAY IT ON THE COMPONNETS ON THE OUTHER SIDE OF THE BOARD THIS IS WHAT A SERVICE PLACE WILL DO IF THAT DOES NOT WORK NOW BRING IT TO A SERVICE AND LET THEM SCRATCH THERE HEAD GOOD LUCK

Working on a 25ltd classic that was wired backwards and wouldn't power up. I changed diode and it lives again. 10 watts output no modulation.


10 watts is illegal. Modulation circuits didn't fare so well. A lot of components fry when you reverse polarity.

Galaxy DX 55HP stopped transmitting, but will receive. When the mic is keyed the power meter goes past max and wont transmit. Tried different mics and no difference


connect to a meter. if there is rf power on a watt meter at full wattage. then the am regulator transistor is bad. less than $5 part.

My cobra 200gtl rev 2 cuts out on ssb after a few minutes


It sounds like the final transistor may be shorted/burned out. If you don't know how to locate or test the transistor you'll have to take it in to a tech. These transistors are usually quite cheap but as to the labour cost it depends on your tech. Usually what causes this damage is a bad antennae match or a bad antennae itself, even a shorted antennae cable. After you've repaired the radio check the antennae and cable first before connecting it up again, then check your match with an SWR meter. Good luck

Standard Horizon QUEST+ GX1256S stuck in Scan mode


I have a GX1255S (black) that has a blown voice chip. Everything else works fine. Sounds like you might have a stuck up or down button on top of your mic. If you would like me to send the whole radio to you, I will. You can reimburse me for shipping and a few bucks for my troubles if it works for you to switch the mic or put some of your guts into this radio. Just a thought. I was planning on taking it to the electronic recycling event in April. pete@captpete.com

Modulation with my linear


the radio you are trying to fry your amp with is driving the amp to hard. that radio has a toshiba 80 watt final inside the radio you are killing your radio with the dead key at 2 watts it causes the final to overheat and shut down because it is not built to be turned down that much. its best to turn the radio back up and use the radio.
