I got a call from Yaesu yesterday, my rig was found in their warehouse after being there for three weeks.
Had to pay $35 to get it assigned to a technician and diagnose.
A few hours later, another call from Yaesu...bad part on control board, cannot replace part, must replace the board.
$266 and change.

Placed a call to Yaesu this morning 10-03-11 to check the status of repair.
Not repaired yet, parts may be on back order.  Supposed to get a call back today. 
If parts are available, the rig should ship at the end of the week.

Regarding my Yaesu FT-450AT problem transmitting infinite SWR on 20 meters. I've just fixed the problem
by disconnecting all DC power to the rig, then disconnecting/reconnecting the ATU-450's two "TMP" wires.

    thanks for your helpful suggestions,
                                                       Bob

I know this is an old link. I'm posting because I found a solution that worked for my 450D with it's TX light flashing. In my case it was my "dead man lever" on my straight key. I'd bumped it and it closed the circuit.

Some have said disconnect your key and mic. I was ready to call Yaesu and pay the $300+ for a board repair.

Often, the short can simply happen between the (this) operator's ears.

All the best,

Zane, KA7UOR
