Nothing changed but VOX just stopped working after being away for 2 weeks.  Computer was left on, after it did not send LSB i rebooted windows, did updates and still does not work.  CW is fine.  any ideas what causes this to happen? relatively new to flex radio and not up to speed on these types of random occurrences.  Thanks in advance.

Which model Flex do you have? If you are using LSB or USB voice then DAX should be off.

I have had this issue too as well as loss of audio. I have found that by moving the mic connection it will start working again. I have also found this problem after the radio sits overnight. I have come out in the morning to the shack and go to talk to someone and I have no audio but the radio will key with the foot switch.

I don't think your DAX would cause that, I turn my DAX off when I am on SSB, but if you are not getting any output on PTT or MOX I would start looking at mic connections. Sounds like your audio line might be open.

Make sure mic TRS plug is fully seated in the jack.
Check mic profile selection and Vox button.
