Galaxy dx959 No RX on AM

RX works on USB and LSB

Absolutely no receive on AM. Needle does not move and no RX audio. What info can I provide?

Somebody was in it because the clarifier is open.

Side Note: VR13 does not affect SSB audio/power and is over modulated. AM audio is perfect on the scope. Q39 Limiter is in tact.

A friend of mine brought 959 that had no am receive all other functions worked fine.
I started with a receive alignment and when I got to L2 I noticed that when I pressed down hard on the slug receive started working. I replaced L2 and am receive was restored.

    Just for the Halibut.

    Seems to be dead on the radio lately. I don't know if the conditions are horrible, or more likely my weak antennas. I may head up in the mountains on Wednesday and see if reception / transmission is improved.
