Icom IC-R8500 FLASHING frequency display, help?

Post by W4AJF » Mon Jun 07, 2010 8:39 pm

Hi, all, I have an Icom IC-R8500 receiver and when you turn it on the display frequency just flashes. You can punch in any frequency and it will read that but it will just flash that frequency and NO sound, no receive. Most of the buttons seem to work but no receive. Anyone know what's wrong?

Thanks,

CPU resetting

If the IC-R8500 is behaving erratically, this may be an
indication of a CPU malfunction. In such cases, reset
the CPU.

While pushing [MW], push [POWER] in to turn on the
receiver power.

• The CPU is reset.

NOTE: Resetting the CPU clears all memory contents
and returns internal settings to their factory
defaults.

Hi, thanks, for the post, that was one of the first things I did but it did not help.

Anyone else know what to do?
