Re: Mysterious Power Shut-down

I would check the power supply. I had a Astron SS-30 and one day the radio would shut off when keyed.. I started to panic, radio is less than a year old, so i checked all my connections and found all was fine. I tried another radio on the power supply and it seemed fine. Just for curiousity i put a hi load on the power supply and the power supply shut off and then came back on. So a friend of mine who is also a technician come over looked over the power supply and hooked it up to a meter and hit the top of power supply and poof it went off and on. Come to find that I had some cold solder joints on the bottom of the power supply. Redid the solder joints and now have not had any problems.. sorry for the long post, but i hope this helps you..

I'm betting something has changed.  It sounds like RF getting back into the rig.  Remove and clean the faceplate connections, recheck ground connections, and clean the connection to the battery.  Same goes with the antenna.  Make sure you have not had a braid come loose.
 
Mobile cw huh.  And in California I have to have a bluetooth for my cell phone ;-)

First thing to check is ALL of the power connection and to make sure
you're getting the proper voltage at the radio
I had an issue on VHF/UHF with the rig shutting down and after
checking all the voltages I discovered water had gotten into the base
of the antenna. Once I dried it out all was fine

Fazlay Rabby
 

Hi all,

My IC-7000 is dead for several months. When I pressed the power button, internal power relay clicks and then disengaged, no sound, no display. I have checked the following:



All of the 3 fuses are ok.

I have cleanned the contacts of the display unit.

display unit contacts pins are ok.

Power supply 13.8V is ok.

Factory reset do not work.



Any suggestions?



Thanks in advance.

Just wanted to give a heads up for anyone looking for the separation
kit. Universal Radio has it on sale for $50. That's 50% off. I just got
mine yesterday but I don't know how long the sale will last. As an idea
about the price, this is the price for the 11' cable alone but you get
the radio and mobile mounting brackets as well. So even if you just need
a spare cable (thanks to those pesky proprietary connectors) it might
not be a bad idea to get the full kit while they're the same price.

I should probably mention something about that in the release notes. The name field does get uploaded, but for some reason, it does not appear in the memory list until the radio is turned off and then on again. When you select list afterwards the names will appear. Don't ask me why it's just the way the radio works.

Re: Program for IC7000

I've had great success with IceComm... worked rather nicely to copy/paste and import from excel spreadsheet to the program and then upload to the 7k. a couple of minor glitches, like the 'name' field didnt outfill on the memory list in the 7k, had to scroll thru each one for it to fill in. But overall, transfer was quick and easy.

As I've mentioned here recently, I use RUMtrol7000
<http://www.dl2rum.de/rumsoft/RUMtrol7K.html> . It's proficient at the
basics of reading, editing, storing, and writing most of the information
and settings in the radio. Not so good yet at real-time control. There
are versions for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and it's free. Version 2.1
recommended.

Re: [IC-7000] Re: Program for IC7000

IceComm works pretty well for uploading & downloading channel information to/from the 7000. As a matter of fact, I did just that yesterday.

The one area where it is somewhat lacking is inserting new information in between existing channels. For example, if you already have channel 1 & 2 programmed, there is no easy way to move channel 2 (and all the others after it) down one slot to channel 3. I have been doing this with Notepad, but, it's not easy.

Also, IceComm can export your channels in a csv format but can't import csv files.

RUMtrol is another program just for the 7000, but, I have not been able to get it to work for me.

Just a reminder to you folks waiting on the separation kit (or already using it). I can't stress enough the importance of that little tiny screw that screws into the separation cable onto the main body of the rig.

I went absolutely bonkers trying to figure out the source of a lot of weird RFI issues. Stocking up on ground rods, re-doing my entire grounding system, ferrite clamps on *EVERY*thing in the house -- everything cleared right up after that little screw was found and installed.

Have fun!
