Today a guy called me about a 2000 for sale, so went over and bought it for a decent price. He did tell me it was a "tech special". The problem was he lost receive and looked at his amp meter on the power supply. It was indicating around 20 amps or so. Before he shut it off it blew a fuse. I got it home and just wanted to verify what he said so I installed 2 2 amp fuses. Pressed the power button and the display came on and about time it got to the "HELLO" splash it shut down. I checked and it had blown the fuse. During this time I noticed the power cord did warm up, along with the rear of the rig. Not wanting to do it again and risk doing more damage I will next tear into this rig tomorrow. It almost sounds like it goes into TX mode when it comes on. But that is just a guess. Anyone heard of a problem similar to this?
