Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • turn On;
  • • disconnect power without turning Off;
  • • leave without power connection for an extended period of time;
  • • remove mic/connector;
  • • exercise PTT switch;
  • • exercise CW key;
  • • remove data cable if hooked up;
  • • switch Off;
  • • connect power;
  • • turn On.
