I have this K500 I just received in the mail today? I was all excited to plug it in and see what she could do.
But then when I plugged it in, it SQUEALED. It wasn't static, it was a high pitch squeal.
And it squealed regardless of whether the switch was in the on or off position, and regardless of where the volume and squelch was set. The only way to stop the squeal was to unplug.
Now I recall these K500's have a problem with the switch and that it needed work after however many years. Would that cause this to happen?
Or do I have a boat anchor?
Anyone have any ideas about this?
