My FT727R has a strange fault.  It doesn't TX or RX (only hear white noise) although the display gives indications that all is well.  Occurs on both VHF & UHF. Strange thing is, if you leave it off for a few days, it works fine for a few seconds and then goes into this fault mode.  Has anyone come across this before or give me any ideas where to look?

I own a 727 and never witnessed anything like this.  You might try the Yaesu reflectors on

www.qsl.net

and

www.contesting.com

Look in the left menu area of the homepages.

I have a FT 727 and have had the same problem.  I first noticed about 2 years ago.  The longer you go without using the radio, the longer it will work.  My first thought was a bad electrolytic or bad VCO board.

I have the service manual, but was unable to determine anything with my limited experience in repair.  I would be glad to send you a copy of the service manual to see if you can come up with anything.
