Hi Bob and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, let's try the basics; proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check/ensure VOX feature is OFF (if not needed/used);
  • • consider/perform a power-on microprocessor RESET.
