yes, this is a common problem with mp's, i have a couple that do it occasionally, usually after being turned off for a while.

I was wondering if anyone has seen this one?  This started about a month ago. My FT1000MP sometimes does not power up.  You push in the "POWER" button and nothing happens!  It is most disturbing. But, if you leave the power button pushed in and wait for about 4 to 5 minutes, it comes on and everything is fine.  It does not do this every time, it does it every couple of days.  I can not seem to pick up on any pattern.  The only semi-consistent thing is the wait time until it powers up is always 4 to 5 minutes.  The only other thing is it seems to more likely do it if I have not turned it on for a few days.

Anyway,  has anyone seen this issue? Any ideas?

Thanks! and 73,
