Flex 6700 powers on but most controls are not responsive. Cannot import profiles. Anyone seen this?
Radio: Flex 6700 S/N 2017-5331-6700-1033
SmartSDR version: 3.3.32
PC: Windows 7
Yesterday evening, I powered on my Flex 6700 and instead of coming up with the 4 slices and all the usual settings, it came up with what I guess is a default screen, 40 meters. There was no received audio.
- I am unable to adjust transmit power. The sliders snap all the way back to zero.
- Received audio does not work at all (i.e., no output)
- If I try to right-click and "Create Slice", that selection is grayed out.
- I am not able to create a new slice, nor can I enable the transmit slice
- Profiles do not import. It goes through the motions, but clearly nothing is actually imported
- Normally I can double click on the display to bring that frequency into focus, but that now has no effect
- The network diagnostics say the network status is Excellent
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. The radio right now is in an unusable state. This certainly, in my view, smells like a hardware issue. I always disconnect the antenna when I'm not using the rig, and touch the center antenna connector and shield to ground before plugging it into the 6700 antenna port (paranoid old coot). Checking now to see if Amazon sells chicken bones and VooDoo handbooks.
Thanks in advance.
