Thread: HELP no display on a FT757 I have just bought

    Default HELP no display on a FT757 I have just bought

    The radio powers up and switches channels you can hear reception on the radio but the VFO knob doesn't change frequency ie it seems to be stuck on one frequency and there is no display.
    Seems as though the two faults are connected any clues please.

    I'd ask the guy you bought it from.
    N5MKH - The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper. Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself. Up is down and down is us and man is no longer an alpha predator.

    Is that the full model number? I don't know if this helps, but I found these 2 comments online pertaining to resetting the unit;

    Having Display trouble with your FT-757 GX.
    Try RESETTING the Rig.

    How to reset...

    Press the LINEAR +WIDTH+ POWER ON...

    It should work......



    You currently have Reset FT-757GX info , However that only applies to the FT-757GXII.

    The correct procedure for the older FT-757GX is:

    PRESS & HOLD in LINEAR & MARKER switches at rear of Radio , Then Turn power on via front panel switch.

    Restore Marker& Linear Switches to the out position.

    I'm very happy for you! Problems are frustrating and it's good to get stuff fixed. I have reset in the past to correct problems.
