TS-570D Power Glitch

Post by WA9WVX » Mon Jun 29, 2009 2:14 am

Hello Dave,

When your TS-570D does this Power Glitch, "Does the transceiver reset the menories and the filter parameters at the same time?"

first of all make a baby sitter using an analog meter.
monitor input voltage to the radio.
an analog meter needle will be visably moving for a split second after the incident, as in a quick voltage drop.
if this is a mains powered radio then monitor some internal voltage, if the mains did not drop voltage. .
also what is the recovery procedure.
do you have to cycle the power switch.
does the radio come back on by it self.
is it during transmit or receive, or both..
isit time sensitive.
does it happen when the radio is cold, or after a long time and its hot.
does it happen when moving the mic cable?
or any cable. or moving the radio itself. any physical thing that might cause it.

trouble shooting is the art of collecting data.................................

you can not ask a question like "" my car don't work,,Whats wrong??""
details details details..
