If you cannot get the mic working properly May I suggest sending it to Bob Nagy for the mic mod
and you can get the PTT issue resolved all in one shot for a lot less then you would buying the parts yourself.http://www.7000mic.com/

I think there is a switch reliability issue here. I'm going to try the DeoxIT spray. If that doesn't work, I'm going to try to find a replacement switch. Its just 4 pins to desolder, I think I can do it. Either way I'll let you know.

Ok this is getting weird. About 3 weeks ago mine did the same thing and I found if I pushed the ptt at just the right angle and pressure I could get it to go. But then about three days later the problem started getting gradually better and now it's every bit as good/ sensitive as it was originally.
I thought I just had an odd int problem but it turns out maybe we all need a young priest and an old priest? Lol. But seriously, how in the world are we all having the same problem at the same time?

The PTT switch in the mic may have failed
Mine just did and I sent it to AB5N to repair

I've had my IC 7000 for about 6 months now. Its installed as a Jack Hartley
mobile with the remote head option. Just this last week, the radio
started to not respond to PTT on the hand held mic. Or it would
drop TX mid transmission. I tried plugging the mic directly into
the mic port on the back of the radio, but I had the same
results. I've tried wiggling the cable and modular connectors while
pressing the PTT, but I have not had any consistent repeatable results.
Has anyone else had this problem?
