Problem: When I switch on the radio, all
setting are lost
I noticed an uncommon behaviour on my FT-1000MP... When I switch off the radio
and turn it on again all the settings are lost. Both VFOs are on 7.000.00, EDSP
off, monitor off, PROC off, filters on 2.4, antenna A, S meter on ALC etc....
Menu settings remain unchanged. I think the last settings should remain in
memory, they were in the past. What I am doing wrong?
Solution: Battery is replaced. The original
(first) one - 3V SONY battery lasted just about 1 year. After battery
replacement (3V Renata from HB9) radio works perfectly again. I hope it will be
sufficient for another year :-) TNX for help & CU ! Robert, S57AW
It's the BATTERY. Good luck - funky behavior just like the display - some have
it, some don't. My first battery in my old MP lasted over 5 yrs. The next one
lasted a few weeks, The next one lasted a few months. Then I got a MARK-V -
Stock battery only lasted a couple of weeks. New one lasted a couple of weeks,
then quit. - BUT A COUPLE OF WEEKS LATER IT CAME BACK TO LIFE! Worked again for
a few weeks, and now it's back to NOT working....
