I've found myself in a similar situation but with my Mark V.  It is about 7 
old and has been sitting idle for about 3 weeks.

I made a few Q's with it this weekend and let it sit idle for an hour.  The
main receiver is now totally gone, no receive, no hiss, no transmit.  The 
does work on some bands, but it depends on what band the main receiver is set

A master reset did nothing.  A call to Yaesu resulted in the same.

So, it's now in the hands of UPS and the world of warranty repair.

I'll report on progress or lack there-of.

Sub receiver works properly. Reset did not help.

elsewhere nice signal.
