So you have a slice or not?  Can you add another slice?

So you show only the panadapter or panafall on 40m. Reload a profile where 40m is working sounds like persistence has bit you at some point.

Try pressing the + on the display, it may be zoomed to far and off scale.

I read post but my 6600 has only one button that I'm aware of ill look at manual and do the reset but I have to say

This kind of stuff is a bug, no way around it, reset shouldn't be a way to fix this kind of problem,

I had the same problem yesterday. It coincided with the start of the network latency issue where the network bar graph went to one bar and red. I had to reset the radio by holding the power button down when the radio was off. It seemed to go away though the network bar graph still goes to red when I jump bands. So far the radio has not shut down like it did when the problem first appeared.

good its not just ME ... I was thinking it was a hardware issue but now maybe its a software issue on the connection problem also, I know the 40 band is software.

Now when I select 80 meter band it goes to 40meter...... doing reset.

ok I did what I think was a reset, manual says:
FLEX-6400M / FLEX-6600M Reset Procedure
With the radio powered off, press and hold down the Power button until the Power LED blinks white, then release the Power button. Allow the radio to continue booting normally. 

I could not get a blinking white light but it did change to solid white....I held after it changed to white but it never started blinking, just stayed solid then after a bit it changed green.

I'm assuming the manual is wrong as the only reference to a white power light is "Flashing", theres no other reference to a white light

40 meter band problem seems to be gone but I still have the connection strength variation problem.

I got the same result when i tried to reset the radio posted the question to the community rig never reset and no one ever responded to my question here to tell me how to reset it, what is in the manual does not work.

Hold the power key down for 5 seconds
