Yaesu FT-920 FLASHING display

Post by W4AJF » Mon Dec 13, 2010 8:51 pm

Hi all, I have a Yaesu FT-920 and when you turn it on the MAIN VFO flashes the frequency continually. Receive volume is VERY low and there is no TX but all buttons seem to work. You can change frequencies, modes, etc, but the radio continually flashes the frequency on the MAIN VFO. VFO B does not flash. Can anyone out there can offer any help?

Thanks,

FT-920 help-no receive

Post by W4AJF » Tue Dec 14, 2010 3:30 am

OK, I have made a little progress but still need help. Someone e-mailed me and told me to try to adjust T2009 which is near the crystal on the Main board. I did that and now the flashing has stopped, the radio has full TX on all bands, but still No receive and receive audio is Very low. When I attach the antenna to the SO-239 there is NO change, it's like it's not even connected.

Any help still appreciated.

Thanks,

FT-920 fixed

OK, finally got it, a technician said it sounded like a wiring issue so I reseated all connections (plugs, ribbons cables etc) and now the radio is working as it should. Thanks to those who tried to help.
