While operating my 6400M in rig mode, when I push in the Mic/Speed PWR knob to access the Tx Menu, nothing happens.  According to pg 145, it should bring up the Tx MENU.  It has the latest s/w.  Any suggestions?

Turned out that the outer knob was too close to the inner. I removed the rubber ring from the knob & loosened the hex set screw & moved it out a touch. Apparently, the detent happens before the electrical connection.  Not sure that is the best way to design the switch.  Ideally you'd want the detent feel & switch make up to happen at very nearly the same moment.  A nice 6 Sigma design project for that manufacturer.

Anyway the TX MENU now works.  Simple fix & thank you Dudley at Flex for the suggestion.
