Hi KE8QA,

The problem on my VX-6R, was a failed ceramic filter in the FM de-modulator section.

Specifically component CF2002 (Toko ALFYM450F=K) on page 29 of the service manual that you can download online.

If you take apart your radio and measure the voltage on either side of that part it should be biased at 1.6V on each side. One side of mine had failed to GND internally.

It is a through-hole part so if your soldering skills are good you can replace it on your own fairly easily. Three of the pins are located in a pretty hefty ground mass portion of the board, so make sure to use some good heat and flux as you are removing the defective part. It cost me $2.60 + shipping from Yaesu parts in California.

Good luck with the repair,
James
