    My TS2000 had a long time dying. First, I noticed the fan going on and off for no reason. ( no transmitting for a long time or not at all ). Few weeks later the radio turned on by itself and sometimes turned off without pushing the power button. I decided to replace the battery ( clock battery ) and try a factory reset. But by that time I could no longer turn on the radio to perform the reset. Now the rig is nothing but an expensive brick. Anybody any pointer? 73 N9OZF

    The battery in the TS-2000 has nothing to do with the operation of the radio. It saves the packet settings for the TNC and nothing else. It can actually be removed without affecting the operation if you never use the built-in TNC.

    I was wondering if while replacing the battery, Something got messed up.

    Yes the battery is only for the set-up data memory, but because I opened up the case to investigate, I changed it anyway. ( 19 years it has been sitting there ) Downloaded all the drawings and next week start testing. Once I figure out the cause of the problem, I'll post the result. Because of the slowly deterioration, I suspect a cap going short.
