   Your mp is not turning on at all or has the issue where the display 
is slow to come on?

   My 1000mp sometimes has the slow display issue. But a couple of years 
ago it developed a problem that intermittently the internal PS does not 
come up at all for a few seconds/minutes then eventually hours. After a 
number of months the PS failed completely and I ran the rig on 13.8v 
until I could ship it off for repairs.
