Re: D700A help with ribbon cable connector

Leo Bodnar
 

I can believe that.
Kenwood TNC is a reasonably standalone module (this is why I am using itseparately) but it frequently communicates with the rest of the system via internal dedicated serial port. Its absence will be immediately known to the main unit brains due to lack of command responses.
I don't know if there is a soft recovery from TNC failure in the 700 - it might just keep trying to boot until it detects one. 
I have 710G and in there TNC is embedded into the display unit (even though it is, essentially, the same TNC hardware and firmware.)

Please post updates of your findings - this is interesting!

Cheers
Leo

Hi Leo

I forgot to ask you.  I have been told that the reason that my d700a will not boot up is because the tnc is not connected and that, once it is connected, all will be well.  Do you have any thoughts on this?  It does seem to make sense on the face of it because the tnc is a vital missing part but I don't understand why the bootup process locks up.  This is why I have been pursuing the replacement of the connector.

I will see once the replacement connector shows up and is soldered into place.

Hi Leo

Thanks for this info. I was wondering actually why I was having so much trouble with a simple connector.  Anyway, I have gone up and down this way and that and finally found from Kenwood US that I can order the actual replacement part.  I have it on order and hopefully it should come in a couple of weeks.  I will advise the group with my ultimate result.

From the service manual and internet pictures it looks like a 26 way vertical FFC connector with 1.00mm pitch.

Have a look here https://www.digikey.com/products/en/connectors-interconnects/ffc-fpc-flat-flexible-connectors/399?k=&pkeyword=&sv=0&pv7=2&sf=1&FV=69%7C409393%2C-8%7C399%2C88%7C159364%2C89%7C6219&quantity=&ColumnSort=0&page=1&pageSize=500

I would just buy a few and choose the most suitable one.  Some have a latch and zero-insertion force, some are friction based.

Joe,
I have just recently (this week) bought a spare TNC from D700 for a project - to play with.  It came with a ribbon cable.  I forgot it in the office but I will have a look while I am there over the weekend.
These flat cable connectors (and cables) are most probably standard FFC connectors so as long you figure out their pitch, pins orientation and number of ways you can usually pick up a replacement pretty easily.  It does not have to be exact part, the footprints are often standardised.

E.g. https://www.digikey.co.uk/products/en/connectors-interconnects/ffc-fpc-flat-flexible-connectors/399

D700A will not start

Joseph LaFerla
 

Hi

In a previous recent post I have indicated that my radio is refusing to start evidently because it cannot recognize the tnc because of the broken ribbon cable connector.  When I try to start, the radio displays the message "Resetting, please wait".  I suspect that the reason for this is because it does not find the tnc during the startup process.  I am having trouble finding a replacement connector to allow me to connect the tnc.  Since I will not be using the tnc and only using the radio for communication, it is not a problem if the tnc is missing but the radio refuses to start otherwise.

Does anyone know how or if I can bypass the tnc in order to allow my radio to continue the startup process and restart?

Thanks and 73

Hi Leo

 

I don’t have a picture of the particular part because it was destroyed by the tech who was looking at it.  But I can take a picture of the one that connects at tnc end.  That one is a horizontal orientation connector whereas the one connecting at the radio end is a vertical orientation.  It is the white connector with brown leg and the ribbon cable sticking out of it.  In the picture the ribbon cable slides right in whereas on the vertical orientation it comes down from above.

 

I don’t know the part number but if you do please let me know. I can send you a different pic if you need.

D700A help with ribbon cable connector

Joseph LaFerla
 
Edited

Hi

While I was servicing my venerable D700A, I inadvertently broke the ribbon cable connector on the main rxtx board which connects to the tnc board,  I checked with pacparts.com and they do stock the ribbon cable but not the connector.  They tell me that the part number is G11-2603-04.  It appears on the 700A board that there are two rows of pads where the connector would solder onto.  Alternatively, if this connector is unavailable, is it possible to hardwire the main and tnc boards?  I do not know if all 28 pins are actually connected.  My 700A refuses to boot and displays "Resetting please wait" in the display window.

A related question would be whether the ribbon cable connector for the D710 is the same as the one for the D700A.  I would imagine it is.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks and 73

TM-D710Ga & "Project: Battery State Tracking"

When I look on Findu, I see I haven't sent a GPS position in over a day. Yet I think I beacon several times an hour from the fixed location.
I do have my precise position in the #605 memory position of the D710 .

And on this page
https://aprs.fi/info/a/KD7YZ-15

I see I am sending something about Battery State Tracking yet not the Position. And IF the Pos is in there then why does Findu still say I haven't reported?

thanks

Fldigi only works with a sound card, in the head is the TNC. Fldigi doesn't work with a TNC. I know in the settings there's a setting for KISS. I never got it to work.

I haven’t tried the chokes yet but just thinking, it is hooked up exactly the same way as using echolink with the radio and echolink works perfectly. If it was rf wouldn’t that effect both of them since they are hooked up the same way using the same cables?
Still going to try chokes when I get some though

I will give that a try. Makes sense, The first thing I thought was that it seemed like some kind of safety shutting it off.

Trying to setup d710ga with fldigi. I am using the pg5h (I think that is the number) cable from kenwood was plugged into the rs232 of my computer and into the back of the radio not the back of the detachable screen, then the data cable plugged into mic and headphone jack on computer. Fldigi is receiving audio from the radio fine all the time. I have fldigi configured to us hamlib which is controlling the PTT fine and is also displaying the correct frequency on the computer screen. I can transmit one message from fldigi with full control. After the first transmission, if you try to make a second transmission, the PTT still keys up the radio but I just get a carrier with no modulation. When fldigi keys the PTT it also keys the hand mic all the time. On this second transmission the hand mic still works as it should, but the radio will not transmit any audio from fldigi. If you power cycle the radio it will work fine again, for one transmission, then needs reset again.  If you unplug the radio where it is plugged into the computer headphone jack, and plug in headphones to the computer, fldigi and the computer are putting out audio, so it is all in the radio basically not accepting the audio from fldigi for some reason on this second transmission. I have found several people with this same problem searching online, but no one that has posted a solution. Anyone have a solution to this problem??  I am mission a setting in fldigi? Will the 710 just not work with fldigi this way? Kenwood was 0 help and just said they do not test there equipment with other software, gave me a few links about fldigi not specific to the 710

Thanks,
