3746Powerup/display issue resolved.
- Feb 13, 2014Thanks for adding me to the group! I have owned an AT803 for many years. Justt oday, I heard the receiver turn on, andthe display was jibberish. I tried to power down, it would not. Remove AC adapter, restart, install new backup batteries, no go. Still jibberish on the display. I removed the back and discovered the adapter jack has one terminal loose on the board. I was not sure this was the cause, ad I was moving it when I was trying to power up the radio.
I resoldered the terminal, and the other two to make sure. That solved the powerup/display issue, and all is working fine now. I am so relieved it was not something more difficult to diagnose. I hope this helps others that might have the same symptoms, and can make the quick check of the solder joint on the adapter plug.
Take care, Gary Rabbitt.
