KENWOOD TM241 PROBLEM
I own a Kenwood TM241A 2M Mobile Transceiver which is used in a base configuration (not mobile) and I have a problem.
About a week ago I looked up at the radio and saw that it had a blank display and that the Dim Light was turned on and lit red. Up to this point it had been working properly with no problems at all except that every now and then the display would brighten and then dim at random intervals - I thought at the time that the display lights were getting weak.
I tried the re-sets that are listed in the manual and can only assume that they worked but the radio is still showing a blank screen and the Dim light continues to glow red - even turning the radio off and than back on has no effect on the radio. I even tried pressing all of the buttons in different combination's with no luck
The only button that functions is the DR/DT button and when it is pushed it gives me a series of 6 tones which I assume to be some sort of error code. A perusal of both the Operator Manual and the Service Manual has no mention of this at all and a comprehensive search of the internet revealed no mention of error codes at all for Kenwood Amateur Equipment.
Has anybody else experienced the same symptoms in a TM-241A and if so what was found to be the cause and how was it fixed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
