Re: IC7000 switching on but no tx/rx

David <davidmm5dww@...>
 

Hi Max, did you find the problem?
My 7000 has started doing a similar fault. I use mine in the mobile, and one day I turned it on and it had no TX or RX, I left it on and after about 30 min I had to restart the vehicle which also drops the voltage causing the radio to restart, and the 7000 sprung back to life again. This happened a few more times but it needed a longer and longer time after being switched on before a restart would enable TX or RX on the radio. Now even 24 hrs isn't enough. I suspect its a sticky relay somewhere.

Any advise is welcome.

Hello, 

My IC7k does the same. For the moment just in few bands and from 70% of power up.
Everything is in place and tight. 
I remember that i had this noise on solid state audio power amplifier while was tested on dummy load. 
In that time the source was located on finals and all the units with this noise fails.

73, Nic

Try this... open the rig and loosen then thighten all the board mounting screws. Do the same with interconnection cables.
Put it back together and test...

This is not a ground issue. It is repeatable on the test bench. It's present in the internal speaker when connected only to a dummy load with nothing but the power supply and a paddle attached. It will happen on CW and SSB with mic or external audio input even without the mic connected.  On SSB, it doesn't matter if the mic is in the front jack or the rear, or not at all.  This was not occurring the night I shut it off and was noticed the next morning when I turned the rig on. 

It's not monitor audio.  That's definitely off.  When monitor is on the audio in the speaker/phones is clean.  This is scratchy sounding, and on CW it's almost like a sizzle.  (similar to the arcing sound of a tuner capacitor) I'm going to investigate further and record it.

Have you got the Monitor function turned on? It is buried in the menu settings.

Hi John,

I'm curious to know if the problem was ever resolved. As of yesterday my 10 year old 7000 just began having faint scratchy audio when I transmit on HF SSB, CW, and RTTY mode (more like a frying hiss) coming from the speaker, internal or external. The symptom goes away if I reduce the output power to around 50% or lower.  AM is OK, but I suspect the lower output doesn't trigger the noise.  No problem on VHF or UHF.   For those who will comment... the faint scratchy audio and/or noise, depending on transmit mode, is there all the time, antenna or dummy load.  It's not RFI.  Ground is good, mic doesn't need to even be plugged in for it to happen on CW when keyed.

Noticed the following listing on ebay. 
ICOM - OPC-1444 Separation Cable for The Icom IC-7000 Transceiver.

I see that this seller Joslyn1980 has sold a few going by positive feedback. 
So anyone that's looking one.
This may be a place to get one if your stuck. 
Seller based in UK/Europe.

I've been using an it100 but..,,also damaged my rig three times !!!! Last years field day was the first id used it since the last repair and after 6 hrs or so, used on cw and/or rtty, it crapped out again, only about 15 to 20w out...it sat until recently when i emailed Matt at SAR in Michigan and he asked me call him....first thing he asked was am i using a LDG tuner....apparently the 7000 doesn't like the rapid switching and swr spikes caused by the tuner....debating whether to fix it again, or try to sell as is..,,receive is fine and vhf/uhf transmit fine, just very low output on hf....

I use the Icom AT-180.  Works great and self tunes when you change frequencies or bands.  You can also MANUAL tune when desired.

Re: IC-7000 and LDG IT-100 ,trouble ?!?!?!

I have been using an IT-100 in my mobile setup for a few years. The radio has not blown up yet.  

Low power is typically due to low DC voltage not SWR although above 1.5 the radio does cut back rather quickly.  I run mine off a deep cycle battery which is charged from the vehicle electrical system through a Schottky diode so I don't quite get 13.8V and rarely get the full 100 W out. 


Re: IC-7000 and LDG IT-100 ,trouble ?!?!?!

I have an IC-7000 and I bought an LDG AT-200 PRO II this week.  The tuner really acts erratic & now it's on it's way back to the store from where I bought it.
I also noticed that the SWR varies way too fast during  a tune cycle.  The tuner even wants to spend a long time trying to tune a resonant antenna while
subjecting the 7000 to very high SWR.  The 2000 memories that the LDG claims to have doesn't seem to work.  The tuner wants to tune almost all the time.
Oh, when placing the tuner in bypass mode and using a dummy load as the antenna the LDG's  LED SWR meter reads almost 2:1  while the IC-7000 is seeing 1:1.

Good luck and I understand Matt at SARTS does excellent work.

Hello Marco,

I’d vote for the AH-4 or a SGC tuner, although it’s not one of you chocies.
Maybe a bit more $$, but very versatile and they work great, whether its a long wire, dipole, loop or vertical. Plug & play.

GL & 73,
Jeff/wb0m


Re: An auto tuner for my IC-7000

Hello,

AH-4 need a command wire.

To answer to the question, i prefer a wellknow Smartuner SG230.
Much expansive but better quality.

I use mine for 20 years like you can see on qrz.com.
(long wire before and now loop)

Best regards,
