Thread: IC-25A: Cannot change frequency

    Default IC-25A: Cannot change frequency

    When power is turned on, The frequency display shows the default frequency. Rotating the Tuning Control knob does not change the frequency. Other things seem to work. This transceiver has not been used in a few years. It has not been damaged in any way. Thanks for any help in fixing this problem. Glenn, W8EXX.

    Have you opened the radio up to see if there are any loose connectors or what the condition of the selector knob internal workings are like?
    I don't know if you have a manual, but here is one

    Default IC-25A: Cannot change frequency

    I have a user's instruction manual, but it has not been much help. Yes, I have opened up the radio and checked for loose connections. The problem may be an oxidized connection, but wiggling connections has not helped. I have not checked the internal working of the control knob. That looks like it would be difficult to get to. Thank you for your response.

    If the radio has been off for a while, you might need to change the internal battery if it has one...

    I couldn’t find reference to tuner dial Lock in the manual I found, but a lock would explain why nothing happens.

    Kind regards,
