Yes, it is a known problem.  Check the ts570 yahoo group for past postings.  The part can not be cleaned, only replaced.

I have the same problem and I'm too lazy to get the encoder changed out.

I have successfully cleaned mine by blowing down the shaft with compressed air.  Not the kind that comes in a can, but 80 psi air from a compressor.  It works sometimes, in fact more often than not if you keep trying until it works.  I need to do this about every 6 months.  Just went through Field Day and it didn't skip once.

Interesting, just blew it down the shaft?

I'll have to give that a try.  Did you rotate the shaft at the same time?

Yep.

Of course, it depends on WHY it doesn't work, what's dirty about it, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.

That's my thought.

Thanks for the tip.

hi,

W02-1901-05       ELECTRIC CIRCUIT MODULE TS-570D

from kenwoodparts.com or pacparts.com

$ 11.00 as of today plus s/h.

Easy to repair, be sure to use solder wick
and a liquid flux pen when you solder the
new part.

You can fix the problem by using a power drill.  Connect it to the shaft of the MULTI/CH and spin it for a while.
I did this to my TS-2000 and it works perfect now.

April 1st is long past.

There's no way I would do that; it is a good way to destroy the shaft and whatever bearing is in there.

As well as the encoder, itself.

FWIW...

I didn't try the drill idea, but I did sit here using just my fingers and whirled it around quickly in both directions for a couple of minutes and the issue is gone....for now.

Simply turning it slowly usually works for me,with any radio with a multifunction encoder.
