Why the Bright Orange Power button?

  • Question
  • Updated 1 month ago
For the last few days after a yr of operating I am getting a bright orange power button. The color code sheet says that I am transmitting on XVTR port with low power level.
I have never had a XVTR on this Flex6400M. The only way to clear  this orange button is to turn the power supply OFF. I have tried to correct this issue buy removing the power cord from the radio for a few minutes and then I reboot the radio and it returns to normal until I shut down, ORANGE BUTTON again. This has occured 3 times in the last 3 days.
I have checked the Menu items to make sure that for some reason the radio thinks it has a XVTR installed.
 Just another annoying issue for me to accept unless there is a solution.
Hope there is help out there.

You should probably ask Flex Support directly about this, using a help desk ticket. They should know what's going on, and know whether it needs any hardware repairs.

If you haven't done this I would.  It is recommended that you make a backup of your Global, Transmit and MIC profiles before resetting the radio back to factory defaults.
NOTE
FLEX-6400M / FLEX-6600M Reset Procedure
With the radio powered off, press and hold down the Power button until the Power LED blinks white, then release the Power button. Allow the radio to continue booting normally.

Do you have the GPS option?
If not, did you accidentally install the GPS?
Make sure the button is uninstalled.
