Always good to check your measuring equipment. Not suggesting that this is the source of your problem! But I struggled for several hours with a zero output QCX only to find eventually that my SWR/Power meter was switched to VHF range. Stupid thing is that I've done the same thing again a few times since (failing short term memory) Fortunately I now normally remember before getting the soldering iron out.
Along similar lines, I was shocked one day to check the input power to the QCX (nominally 13.8V) and get a reading of 19+ on my DVM. Eventually noticed the "low bat" indicator and all was well - a few worrying moments nevertheless.

Were you ever able to see any RF output on your SWR meter? I'm guessing so, but I want to verify that with you. If so, do you have an idea of how much power you were getting out?
