Radio turning off when transmitting

I am using a 6300 and this problem mirrors one I had a couple of years ago and I thought I had asked here but I can't find the solution that was proposed back then which, by the way, worked. If I remember correctly, the answer was to reload the software. I have been using the radio without incident until about two weeks ago.

When I try to initially use the built-in antenna tuner when first bringing SSDR up, the radio will power down. I am using v1.11.12.523 and reception seems to not affect the radio negatively even when left on for hours until I try to either transmit or use the tuner.

I am using Windows 7

Thanks for any help offered.

I had a similar problem with my 6700 several months ago (before I upgraded to V2.x).  It turned out to be a problem with the power supply I was using.  I changed to a different power supply and the problem disappeared.
