FYI: 7K DLE MKII power switch & rear connectors

Postby Dave30019 » Wed Apr 22, 2020 7:54 pm

I removed the front panel to tighten the front handle screws, one was loose. I also decided to turn the power switch 180 deg., I prefer power On to be UP not down. I immediately noticed the red/black wires going to the power switch had a SEVERE crimp in it. This was caused be a metal support plate in the middle of the radio to the left of the switch. The wires were pinched between the plate and front panel. When I removed the power switch and rotated it, the wires now were on the right side and away from this plate.
Not sure if this is an issue with all 7K MKII Black Face's or not.
Also most of the connectors in the back were loose only finger tight.
