Greetings to the Elmer's.
Icom 756 pro 3 ALC meter not working (zero) and max power 30 watts all modes, but the SWR, power, and compression readings all function properly. All external equipment and cables except mic (Tokyo HP amp, Rigblaster Pro) has been disconnected and SSB output is still only 30 watts with 1:1 SWR (measured with external meter before and after).
IALC voltage should be 0 to -4 vdc range. Have Service Manual and have removed the top and bottom covers of the rig for inspection. Also have the schematic that came with rig.
One last clue - 80 meters output is 100 watts ?? Other bands it's 30 watts max out.
I'm ready to start taking measurements on the test points and would appreciate any info on where to start with my volt meter. NO scope here to test with so voltage and continuity checks are it.
Tnx for taking time to read post and hoping for help.
