Flex 6300 dead as a door nail
I slid the tune slider up all the way, keyed the mic and the Flex went dead - clicked and all power lost. No green light at the power button.
There is power at the connector. I have tried holding down the power button to reset but it is totally dead. Any suggestions how to bring this back to life? Should check the fuse inside? Any idea what I did wrong?
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the Flex Community!
Sounds like you have a serious RF in the shack issue. Before going too far, check your grounding and shielding, and ensure your rig is not too close to your antenna system.
Just to confirm, your power supply puts out 12-14 VDC, can supply enough current, and is properly polarized?
Try a full reset. Disconnect power for 5-10 minutes, and once you plug it back in, hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. With luck, you will get a response from the rig and be able to boot up. Then start SmartSDR and reload your saved configuration. If you haven’t saved one, just set up as if the rig was new.
If the rig won’t start, or if you get a flashing red light, it’s time for a service ticket. The support team is prompt and smart.0
