head and the main body of the radio.i have found the interface
cable between my control head and the main body of my radio
causes the same problem.positioning my cable a certain way into
the control head my radio will power on and off.

If it is power connection quality, it
could happen at APRS transmit time. When the radio pulls more
current, voltage to the radio drops to the point where it shuts
off ... Maybe.

Lately my D700 has started powering itself off. Radio is in
shack, powered by good PS. I hear the speaker pop as if the
power button has been touched and the radio powers itself down.
Yesterday heard the "pop" from the speaker and turned around in
time to see the display go out.
Radio is APRS mode with 30min TX interval, no GPS attached as
POS is known in shack.
I looked around for "Power off" subjects in the list an don't
immediately see anyone with the same concern.
Is there a known issue that could be contributing to this?
Radio was purchased in approx. 2006/2007 and used by my father
until is passing in 2015. I've had it in the shack next to my
TS-480 since then with no other issues.
I do leave a RT-Systems USB cable attached as I use the radio
for WINLINK and that stays attached to the laptop. Potential
Any insight would be appreciated!
