I had the same problems with both my FT-1000D and FT-1000MP. They would
go into what I call the "awful slow motion" mode or would operate
randomly. The data for the FT-1000D and the FT-1000MP are very
different, but I have been able to resolve the problems as follows.
Do a master initialization of the Yaesu transceiever. This involves
turning the raer panel memory backup switch OFF, waiting a minute and
then back on. This resets the transceiver to all the original factory
specifications. All Yaesu CAT interfaces operate 4800 baud, No parity, 2
stop bits (4800N2) and you must use a STANDARD RS-232 cable, not a "null
modem" cable. Be sure you have CT configuration set for the proper
FT-1000MP (the FT-1000 will give you errors) and the COM setup properly
set for the correct COM port and speed.
I have discovered that there is still a random timing problem with the
FT-1000D with Pentium machines using CT. But the reset procedure above
will normally fix the problem.
I still have to occasionally reset mt FT-1000D and the FT-1000MP when
they start acting up. Good luck and be assured it will work properly
most of the time.
