Alinco DR-610T problem

My Alinco DR-610T worked fine last night when I installed it into my truck. It was accidentally turned on today while I was double-stick taping it to my console. I turned it back off, stuck it to the console, turned it on, and now the screen says: set up
and then goes to: --- ---

Nothing but the power button seems to work, I can't reset it.

    I am certain that no buttons are stuck. I even swapped the head unit with another than I had with the same results.

    I have the exact same problem. Any luck fixing it? What was it? Thanks

    Are you sure that none of the buttons are stuck? If one of the buttons was pressed and remained in the pressed position it may cause this problem.

Have you checked the caqble that goes between the head and the radio. I have had radios come into my shop that have had bad cables or the cable connector on the board gets a cold solder joint. be sure to check the connector on the head and on the radio side. If this is not the problem then it's time to take it to your local ham store for service. If it's still under warranty then let the factory take care of it.

Alinco DR-635. On two meters, there is no received audio.

I think your 2M section has a dead FET in the receiver front end. The FET transistors are bad about being destroyed by ESD, as they are not gate protected. This is a repair shop job, unless you are very good with repairing surface mount technology. The 635 is a good rig, well worth the repair costs. Consider using a factory repair shop, to get the job done right. There is an Alinco group on Yahoo Groups, join them and ask where to send your radio for repair. They will know who is reliable enough to trust your treasured radio to for repair.
Good Luck,

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on

You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad
