Bencher cw paddle stopped producing sound. It was working fine for about a week but when I powered on the radio today it produced no audio. What am I doing wrong?

Sidetone button turned off perhaps, or the sidetone slider got turned down to 0.

Right below the speed setting slider and above the Breakin & Iambic buttons on the P/CW section.  If you're not seeing that, you may just have your mode set to something other than CW, in which case you'll not be able to transmit CW or hear the sidetone.

Rick, thank you. The side tone was set to 80. I lowered it to 70 and raised it back up and the paddle began to work
