Yaesu Radio Communications - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Yaesu 101ex has no reccive or transmit
The problem is likely the TX/RX relay. If it is old (and I am sure it is) the contacts likely need to be cleaned, or the relay replaced. It is a common enough relay if you want to replace it. Also, pull each PCB card and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser. Pink erasers are OK but the white ones are better as they aren't as abrasive.
Hope this helps, VE3CMQ

My yaesu ftm 3200 will not power up
Check the fuses and the power supply. Make sure that the power supply has enough capacity to run the radio, at least 20A! Make sure that the power supply is putting out 13.6V.
If you were unfortunate enough to hook the power leads up backwards, then a trace may be blown off the circuit board internal to the radio. Also, it is likely that the reverse polarity diode inside has shorted out. This may cause the fuse to blow when you apply power. If it has blown, it likely took the the trace out inside the radio.
If the power supply and fuses are OK, unless you are competent technically, the only recourse is to take the radio into a shop and get them to fix it. If you were upgrading the firmware inside the radio when it happened, then the radio is likely non-repairable.
I don't recommend ever upgrading a radio's firmware! If it isn't broken, then don't fix it!!

2900r yaesu will stay keyup.
Unplug the mic. If it stays keyed up, then you have a problem within the radio. If it un-keys, then the problem is in the microphone. If it is internal to the radio, take it to a competent technician. If the problem goes away when the mic is unplugged, then get a new microphone.

Have any side effect to smoke ecigs?
You cannot use that adapter to charge ecigs!
The batteries will hit up & explode because high voltage.
First of all it provides 6V which is too much and all ecigarettes that i know use a MicroUSB port for charging (or firmware update on mods)
Usually any ecig battery or mod will use the default USB voltage which is 5V and max 2.4 Amps.
Do NOT use over 5 volts on ecigs unless you got a special model that asks specifically for that power (very unlikely)
As a side effect from vaping ecigs...all i can recommend is to use more or only VG (Vegetable Glycerine) instead of too much PG (Propilen Glycol) on the liquids.
PG can give some side effects to sensible persons as dry throat, strong coughing, some throat bitterness.
Unfortunately most eliquids use plenty PG because it boosts the flavor!

Yeasu FT990 Gone Deaf
This could be many things but a good place to look is the TX/RX and ATTENUATOR relays. These are problem areas in a lot of radios. This is a complicated radio and if you need to ask this question I would suggest you find someone that knows how to work on these. It will require a fair bit of skill to find the problem and replace the parts. The radio has a lot of surface mount components which are difficult to work with without causing more, and often, expensive damage.
