Ribbon cables for IC-7000?

 

W3 8900015210 CBL OPC-1448A (P0.5, N28, L60)  Main board to PA
W4 8900015210 CBL OPC-1448A (P0.5, N28, L60) Main board to PA
W5 8900015220 CBL OPC-1461A (P0.5, N30, L40) Main board to DDS
W6 8900015220 CBL OPC-1461A (P0.5, N30, L40) Main Board to DDS
W7 8900013970 CBL OPC-1450 (N=10, L=53) Man Board to Display
I cut the W7 cable off at the bend right at the socket where the cable was broken internally and scraped and tinned the ribbon for an emergency fix, but this did not get the click click going indicating that I was making some progress.
I pushed on the cables to the PA and got the click so there is the same problem for the PA cable(s).
I will try the same emergency fix on them but this really leaves little room m repto get the main board out for replacing the 4.7 ohm series with the regulator that burns out when there is a short on the line.
I soldered som small wires to let me replace the resistor with the board in place to troubleshoot the front panel.
Anybody have any ideas where I can get some ribbon cables?

Ribbon cables for IC-7000?

 

I have been working on my second IC-7000 from the scrap pile with the Click - Click no power problem.
My problem is that the main board has been out so many times that the ribbon cable from the main board to the transfer connector for the front panel has broken internally.
Let me tell you if this is making intermittent connection it can cause a LOT of extra work.
I would buy a set of cables, but the one I really need is the W7 8900013970 to the display.
I also need two BT1301 3020000330 Lithium battery ML920S/F9D.
Does anyone have a good source for these parts?

There are no firmware updates for IC-7000’s.

Re: Ic 7000 scanning

Chris
 

Yes Bob. But I sat and searched the manual and found out. If you press and hold the TS button a window pops up to change from 10Khz to 5Khz I was looking in the VHF and UHF side I did not see it so I could it on the HF side lol. Hope this helps a new be from going NUTS in finding it.  Thanks for the help.

There are 2 ways to change the scanning -- just pushing the SCN wen it is showing, and also holding it down for a second -- and then you will get the ability to select the scan steps you want.

I have not tried it on 2m, so I am not sure what steps are available, but that should allow you to change it.

Hi Ron,
I just cut the end off of a network cable and connected the appropriate wires to the switch pad from mic 2 and 7.  I plugged it into the rear mic connector. That's OK because there isn't a mic in the keypad, so no problems with 2 mics. Works like a champ!

Looking to replace my trusty IC-7000 with a DC-to-Daylight rig with digital in it. Before going the eBay or eHam route, wanted to offer it to the group.

I'm the original, non-smoking owner. Rig has spent 95%+ of its time in the shack, with an occasional trip in the mobile. Very clean, perfect working order. Comes with original packaging, manual, transceiver mounting bracket, control head mounting bracket, control head extension cable. Have done the MARS/CAP mod. Rig was in to Matt in Michigan in 2015 for new HF final and full checkup. 

Asking $800 plus shipping to you (CONUS). Pictures enclosed. Contact me off list at KC9IL@... for more details if desired.
