    I had this intermittant problem of my receiver not working. The meter showed a signal there, but no audio. I could turn it off then back on and it would work for a while. I looked around for help and found that this problem was not uncommon for this radio.

    Simple fix.

    Remove the bottom cover (with the front facing away from you). In the top right-hand corner there is a audio IC with 5 legs sticking out. I re-soldered all 5 legs and that fixed it.. Simple..

    And just think, I was about to send the radio in for repair at $84/hr..

    Thanks to WB7DJ
