 I have a older FT-1000D (1992) and the S-Meter has stopped functioning.  I anticipated it to be a faulty meter but have hesitated in tackling the replacement.  However In a recent on the air conversation another FT-1000 owner had the same problem early in the radio's life.  

 Yaesu sent him two diodes and two locations for the faulty diode replacement.  Only one was needed and the meter function was restored, but he did not remember which diode or where.  

Is this a known problem, and does anyone have the details of what part and its location?
