Icom IC-706MKIIG Questions & Answers
ICON 706MKIIG Radio no power up
Check the internal fuse. It may have blown. Other than that, I would suggest you take it to someone that works on these radio's. They are very difficult to work on if one isn't proficient in working with surface mount devices.
Polarity reverse problem in icom 706 mkiig
Quite a few things can go wrong in this situation. There is an internal fuse that can blow, but the first problem will be a rather large diode that is directly across the DC power input. Reverse polarity will cause this to short, and it usually stays shorted. It will need to be replaced. Then, you should look for open traces from the +12V line to the fuse holder, and the collector of the HF output transistor. If you do not see close to ZERO ohms when your leads are attached, then you have a trace blown off the board.
Depending on how long you left the reversed power on, and if you replaced the inline fuses with a larger value, repair cost can run you from $2 to several hundred, just for the parts! I would take it to someone that knows how to work on this radio. It is not an easy radio to work on.
Remote key pad for IC-7610, I press a button and just get a beep like no memory is loaded, but memories on screen work.
If you're hearing a beep when pressing a button on the remote keypad for your IC-7610, it's possible that the keypad is not programmed correctly or is not communicating with the radio properly. Here are a few troubleshooting steps you can try:
- Check the connection: Make sure the remote keypad is securely connected to the radio's remote jack using the supplied cable.
- Check the settings: Make sure the remote keypad settings on the radio are configured correctly. Press the MENU button on the radio, select "Set" and then "Remote Operation." Check that the "Remote Type" setting is set to "IC-7610" and that the "Remote Address" matches the keypad's address.
- Check the keypad programming: Make sure the buttons on the keypad are programmed with the correct commands. You can check this by pressing the MENU button on the radio, selecting "Set" and then "Function Keys." The functions assigned to each key should be displayed on the screen. If they are not, you can program them by pressing and holding the F key on the keypad and then pressing the button you want to assign a function to.
- Reset the radio and keypad: Try resetting the radio and keypad to their factory settings. You can do this by pressing and holding the POWER button on the radio until it turns off, and then pressing and holding the FUNC button and the ENT button on the keypad while turning the radio back on.
If none of these steps work, it's possible that there is a hardware issue with either the radio or the keypad. You may want to contact the manufacturer's customer support for further assistance.
Model 718. Why is CW mode kaput?
There are a few possible reasons why your radio might not be transmitting in CW mode. One possibility is that the keyer chip has gone bad. Another possibility is that there is a problem with the power supply. If you have a multimeter, you can check the voltages to see if they are within specification. Finally, it's also possible that there is something wrong with the antenna connection. Make sure that everything is securely connected and that there are no loose wires. I hope this helps!
