Re: ic 7000 no go.
Hi ! Ludovic - F5PBG,
Firstly, would like to thank you here to provide a great resource to cure the IC-7000 no go problem, Since yesterday my IC-7000 got same problem after short time of receiving in VHF, the beginning with the color display becomes dark then system power off automatic, I have try to turn power on again but just heard relay click and click sound but no wat to boot it up, finally, I found this guide and after check the system up have found C502 get bad in almost 20 ohms and leaded the R2011 burned out, now I have prepare the parts to fix it , but still one question want to verify before I make it done.
The question is according to the guide, the R2011 was replaced by a 1/4 watts 4.7 ohm, but I have check this 4.7ohms part specification with the IC-7000 service manual and it show is 0.75 watt, because 0.75Watt type SMD is some how difficult to found in local therefore would like to confirm you with if I can use 1/4 (0.25) watt general one to replace the original 0.75watt one ? Or has to be using a 1/2 watt general one to avoid may have an overheat and failed again soon. Thank you for your help in this regard.
