usually a blown internal fuse would show in the front display of the 6500 as an error.

Yes, there is a 30 amp fuse in the 6500 and if it was blown, the radio would do nothing when the power button was pressed. 

Fast shut down could be your power supply crowbaring (if it has such a circuit).

Check your power supply first.  If it does the same thing with a different p/s, open a HelpDesk ticket.

If the voltage isnt high enough it will shutdown, check the power pole connections.

Thanks Larry. The voltage is ok. Also a second power source made no change.

Another supply did not help. I will ask for a Help Desk Ticket.

I have requested a ticket. I just mentioned 1 attempt to transmit. The bottom line is simply that it does not turn on.

Thanks again Tim.
