Good Afternoon Gents from a blustery UK
I have recently acquired another 585 to repair the one that I have been having a multitude of problems with.
This one is in better condition than the original one so I am going to work on this one instead.
!st problem is the 'S' meter, no movement even on very strong signals, I have investigated the IF/AF board, connector 58, knowing that movement on and off sometimes clears these faults, but it didn't this time.
next is to give the 2 x 'S' meter pots a wiggle along their tracks and see if that works.
2nd fault is the display comes on only after I turn the VFO knob after switch on.
3rd fault, the battery does charge, so I look at that.
In all I am pleased as this one is working and not showing the dreaded PLL UNLOCK message on screen
Any clues as to where to look  to cure these problems.
Thanks in anticipation
