Author Topic: Can CI-V on 706MK11G go bad?  (Read 1345 times)

I've been doing PSK31 using Ham Radio Deluxe on my 706 MK11G for about two years, no problems. About 3 weeks ago I moved my radio about a foot on my desk without disconnecting anything, and my computer lost touch with the radio.  It has never reconnected. I replaced the prodigy-type USB CI-V cable; have re-installed HRD; have reset the ICOM; have played with the port settings about a zillion times.  Rig and computer have same baud rate; address is set to 58H; computer says port is working fine; but the computer cannot get the frequency from the radio and connect. I even tried connecting with TRX but no luck there either.

As I recall, the first time I set this up it only took about a minute and worked correctly.

Any thoughts?  I would hate to replace this otherwise FB radio just for this function, but I do like PSK31 and HRD.

Thanks,

Steve

Try to delete the driver for the CI-V Cable and reinstall.  But yes it is electronic so the port could go bad.

And maybe try a CPU reset on the rig.

Well I tried suggestions to no avail.  Finally I scrounged up another PC from my pile Pile of Obsolete Stuff (POS) and replaced the PC I had been using.  Installed HRD-5 and DM-780 and a com port CI-V cable, and everything came up and worked fine.

As I only use a PC for HRD and QRZ.com, no big deal swapping in another PC.
