Lost transmit

Running 024 all day. Have been home teleworking with the radio on in case any good dx popped up. Mad a few contacts. Not one issue all day till around 4:35pm.

Went to answer a CQ and no reply. He was pretty loud from Korea.and I was running 800W. Been at that power level all day. I checked my external meter and no output. Then I noticed no connection between SmartCAT and the DXLabs software.

I had to close down SSDR and SmartCat and restart them to get back to normal...well, close to normal. Now when I change bands I get no slices till I create them.

Did something screw up with a settings file inside the radio?

Forgot to mention that after restarting things the transmitted signal on the panadapter did not look nearly as clean as it did before. Lots of IMD (I think). This was on CW.

Should I do another reset?

Did you try the remove the DC reset. This might have corrected this pretty easily.
