Yaesu FT-990 ham transceiver has display and panel lights flashing=no RX or TX. Had same problem 2 years ago and was fixed by PLL board alignment . Repairer no longer does FT=990. Anyone know of reputable servicer for the FT-990 , especially someone who can repair just the plug in card and not have to send entire transceiver? It required longer and longer warm up before lock on but now it just flashes. I put my card in a friends same model and no help. Put his local/Pll card in my rig and all is perfect again. Any source for usable local /PLL card? AC4EY

Dropped my Palm TX, IR no longer works

I went to the Palm support website. It seems that after any reset, including a soft reset, the Beam Receive function has to be re-enabled. Follow this path:
  • Applications==>Prefs==>Power
  • Beam Receive==>Off==>On==>Done
For more information:,kb=PalmSupportKB,CASE=obj(14838),ts=Palm_External2001

I also updated the driver for my Palm wireless keyboard.

Dual band amateur radio ic-3210a no rx no tx on uhf side?


Since the problem involves both the RX and TX of the UHF (assuming display/logic circuitry is OK), then possible areas of concern would be:
  • UHF VCO/PLL section;
  • UHF voltage regulator.
I am assuming that you are comfortable/familiar working with electronic circuitry and components, a DVM and a soldering iron. Initial course of action would be:
  • check for CPU triggers to IC4 and IC6;
  • check +5 & +8 regulator and the 30V DC to DC converter (unlikely, but worth the effort).
  • of course comparing with standards voltage checks would be the best route. A service manual would be of help.
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.

I have a Palm TX. 3Years old. 6 Months ago had to calibrate Touchscreen every day. 2 months ago had to calibrate touch screen 2/3 times a day. Recently can't calibrate touch screen. Targets go into loop...

Same happened to my 3 month old TX. I just recharged it, and all was OK! Sounds strange at first, but in my hometown, it is very humid, so maybe it got some moist inside and that caused some variations in the power or battery or voltage... dunno, maybe you need some cleaning, or try to calibrate while plugged.

Hope to be useful!

Hi John,

You have thermal run away in the PA bottles. Change all three for new ones and you will cure the problem.

With regards to the VOX make sure the DELAY control is not set to high, located above the RF amp button.

White screen with vertical bands

I have experienced the exact same thing. No dropping the Palm. No moisture. Just turned it on at work and it had the lines. Fortunately the data was still available for a synch. Now I am ordering a complete LCM and digitizer from PDA See for the pricing. It isn't cheap, but I believe it will fix the problem.  Let me know what solution you came up with and how the issue is now. Thanks, er
