Have you picked up the phone and talked to the service department?
If not, why?

> Okay, well this thing is acting very weird. I did some more testing

> - The main receiver is 99.999% dead. It virtually never works now. The
> S-meter is frozen and the audio is either a hissing sound or absent (muted).
> - The sub receiver works but only through the headphone jack. It will
> either put out a hiss or nothing (muted) to the speaker but it seems to
> be acting fairly normally through the headphone jack. I have toggled
> the Audio menu settings for Left/Right/Speaker to swap things around but
> the behavior remains the same.
> - The sweep display (which I normally leave off) shows active RF on the
> main receiver but the S-meter is frozen and no audio. The last time the
> main receiver actually worked a couple of hours ago, I was adjusting the
> RF Gain and the S-meter suddenly froze and the receiver stopped working.
> - The sweep display sometimes displays a flashing vertical stripe
> pattern across the entire display. This happens about 20% of the time.
> I've never seen this stripe pattern before.
> Just thought I would pass some more info along in case any of this
