I see Yaesu has had "squelch" problems variously.  I saw mention elsewhere about taking a different model apart, but haven't been inside one of these and have no guess what might be fixable if anything.

I can use tuner cleaner on the potentiometer if that'd help, look for bad solder joins -- waiting to try opening it up until I have more of a clue what else might be worth trying.

Failing that, wondering where to send the thing for someone else to play with it rather than landfill it.

Good battery;
did the factory reset (power on while holding MR and VFO)
Screen green bars at bottom show "I" (left side of left field) and "S" (left side of right field) and never change.
No blinking.
Shows A in left of window (presumably VFO band A)
Function key seems to do nothing, all the keypad does is enter numbers.

If the monitor button (side of radio next to PTT) is stuck, it will do what you describe.
