Customer Question
I have a Kenwood...

I have a Kenwood TS-570S transceiver I havent used for about 6 months. I turn on the power supply. It is 13 volts. The transceiver displays the frequency for about 2 seconds, then goes off and nothing. No background noise either.

Technician's Assistant: What is your TS-570S connected to or paired with? Are all cables connected tightly?

Connected to a vertical antannae, all cables seem good. the display light seems to be a dim yellow. I noticed in troubleshooting section maybe a lithium battery needs replacing.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a different audio source (e.g. another TV, computer, or CD)?

No i havent. when I first turned it on there was some background noise for a couple seconds, then silence and no frequency displayed.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

No i havent. when I first turned it on there was some background noise for a couple seconds, then silence and no frequency displayed.

Initially, yes. Replace the coin battery even if just to eliminate it as a potential suspect.
