Icom IC-736 Power Supply Problem

(1/1)

Hi, My IC-736 came to me with an intermittent power problem, sometimes it wouldn't switch on, sometimes it would.

I found a hairline fracture on one terminal of a main smoothing capacitor - the big ones. I also found some wetness and discolouration near other electrolytic caps so I replaced them all - only a few bucks but make sure you use 105C types from a reputable (not Chinese) manufacturers such as Rubycon, Chemicon etc.

The IC-736 is a great radio! I love mine.
