My TS 830 was in storage for 10 years until about two weeks ago. I set the station back up and everyting was working fine.

After a short vacation, the rig won't tune up. I follow the manual directions exactly as I have always done, but the reading on the meter is flat whenever the send switch is turned on or the cw key is engaged.

I would think that if the tubes are shot, that they would give some warning and not go dead all at once.

My wife demands a new kitchen before a new rig may be purchased. Does anyone have any ideals on what could be going on with my 830? Up until now it has been a great rig.

Sincerely,
Bob Burns

    some  suggestions, Is the screen grid switch "on" at  the back of the rig ? Is the front heater switch "on" next to the power. Have you introduced carrier gain ?

Bingo! Adding the Mic carrier did the trick. Thank you very much.

Doesn't matter, you're still going to have to do the kitchen.   :-)
