I have the 1000MP MK-V and after some serious ragchewing for two hours, I 
managed to get the radio hot and the fan kicked in.

After completing the QSO, I turned off the radio.  I quickly went to turn the 
radio back on and now the radio refuses to turn on.
I notice that the FP-29 supply switches into some protect mode (led flickers on 
FP-29) and it appears that something is "shorting" in the 1000MP Mark-V causing 
the power supply to go into protect mode and hence the radio never turns on.

I disconnect the FP-29 and check the voltages, measured 13.8VDC and also the 

The radio refuses to turn on and nothing smoked.

Any ideas? Are my finals blown/shorted cuasing a short?
