Tuner Genius Failure.
I received my TGXL on 8 February 2022.
I have had my Tuner Genius really successfully working, and have been thrilled with it until this morning. I have it on LAN to PC, FlexRadio 6600M, NO amplifier, all the correct utilities and software etc.
Suddenly, as of this morning, it will not tune to 30M, 40M, 60M, 80M, 160M. All the higher bands i.e. 30,17,15,12,10,6 are working excellently. I have eliminated as far as I can see anything I am doing wrong. I have replaced the antenna with a dummy load for testing. I have the tune power set to 20 Watts, and the TX Delay set to 30ms since I installed the TGXL. The tuner behaves exactly correctly on the higher bands, but it will not "tune" the dummy load on all the lower bands, nor even my antennas. It shows a very high SWR, which of course it should not do. I have tried re-configure, I have tried re-installing Firmware 1.1.6 to the instructions in the manual. I conclude there must be a failure in the TGXL, quite possibly mechanical in nature.
Has anyone else had a similar problem? Or could shed light onto what to do??
Thanks. Mike G4GWH.
