I get the following error codes on power on my flex6500: PSH1V0A-1.2.3, PSL1V0A-0.0.5, and PSL1V0A-0.0.1 Once the codes are displayed it sticks in shutdown mode and power must be removed from the radio completely.

Try a more robust power supply.  If that does not do the trick...................you have a problem.

Bob thanks for the info. I'm using a Harris RF3236 PS, 13.6v @ 30 amps continuous. I have 4 FLEX 6500's that I'm trying to get working. One works fine, one has the error codes, and the other 2 won't take the new 2.4.9 upgrade. I think you are correct in stating that I have a problem. I will switch to another PS for testing and post any outcomes. These were/are NIB! We have several more at the office and I have to say I'm not enthralled at their performance.

73, Jack

I've tried to find what they mean but they seem to be close hold. If anyone can reference a place to find them It would be greatly appreciated.

Jack, I had a similar problem with my 6700 recently. Took apart the radio, "cleaned" internal fuse/holder as well as Power Pole connector. Re-tightened power cord (I have very short cord) and after that everything been working fine.

Johan, thanks I'll give that a try. I thought it might be an internal power issue. My power supply is a good one and plenty of power to run the FLEX that works as well as several other radios in the office.

Hi Jack,
I also had some power related lockups related to the fuse.  I documented the issue and solution on my web page.  It involved cleaning the fuse and applying some "conductive" grease to the connector.

Sounds like an internal voltage control component. I was working through a problem shortly after getting my 6500. they had me do a diagnostic test by pressing the left and right arrows in a combo that displayed all the voltage points in the radio on the screen. I wrote them down,,lets see if I can locate them.

Very true. Any other radio I've ever purchased or worked on usually includes a schematic in the owners manual or help is avaiable. When it shuts down it says:


PSL13V88-00.01 Check Fuse

Checked both fuses, both good. Cleaned the tangs and the sockets, used a little deox on a q-tip. Still get the same code on shutdown. I also think it's a problem somewhere in the voltage regulation circuit. This would not be the first one we have had do this. The other one is kaput as well.

Bill if you can find that self-test procedure to show the voltage point that would be helpful.

THanks. I can try some different combinations using that information. What can it possibly hurt since it doesn't work as it is.

found it, 3 left 1 right  press ok

only way to get out of this mode is to remove power and re start.

I think my readings were

63  125  25  500  1k   4
6      4      2    3    -2    4

They were found to be normal range

Wow! got a tone of numbers!


14.40, 14.39 ... etc.  too many to write down at once. Going to take a couple of tries to get them all

Also got CPU=0
FPGA = 0

I'll have to write them down little by little tomorrow when I get back to work. I'll update this post then.

remember, you have to pull power to get out of this mode
