Repair IC-7000 parts

James Fisher
 

I am about to send in my IC-7000 in for a repair.
The speaker jack needs replacing [rear].  This is the only problem.
I am also thinking about having the ON/Off switch replaced , although it works fine. It has had a lot of use.
Is there anything else I should have replaced ?
I am thinking of sending it to Burqhardt's. I live in MT. Is there any other place I should consider sending it to for repair ?
I will also have them check it over for spec's [freq, etc] as long as they have it.  
Thanks
James

Over a period of 10+ years, I have sent several of my Icom radios (IC-706MKIIG, IC-7000, IC-756pro, IC-92AD, IC-W32A, etc.) to be repaired by "Malcom Technical Support" for a variety of conditions.  Each time, I have always been very pleased with the quick turnaround, the reasonable rates, & most especially the high quality of the repairs.  I would highly recommend that you take a look at MTS:

The power connector should be replaced too.

This requires removing the PA board, which is no fun.

I am surprised about the power connector.
Since the radio does not get connected/disconnected often.
I am not arguing with you, just confused.
Is this a weak place / part on the radio ?
Thanks
James

To access the power plug you have to unsolder the driver board, rf connectors etc, but it is not all that bad of a job.
On my IC7000 the problem was really with the plastic body and the pins were OK.
I had to get under the board for other repairs, but while there I did replace the plug body.
Basically I don't pull the plug that much as I use Anderson Power Poles extensively.
Basically it is not that hard to replace the speaker jack either, but first I would make sure that you are using a true 3.5 mm plug and not a 1/8" as they are smaller and often don't make good connection.
Before I sent it off I would make sure that I had a very good 3.5 mm plug and see how that works for you.

Before dissection, kindly buy a set of ribbon/flexible cables, 80percent chances for its damage ,

I think that you should probably buy and keep a set of ribbon cables (complete set they are not that expensive).
The ribbon cables seem to fail as you look at them.
While you are in there also make sure that the driver board and finals have thermal compound properly applied as well.

OK thanks James
