Are you using the internal mic or external? Try whichever you don't usually use and see if that makes a difference.

From a text file that I've kept in storage for many years:

Code:
If your rig suffers from the low Tx audio problem, here's how to fix it.

1. Remove the battery and antenna.
2. Remove the "NiCd" sticker on the heat sink. 
    If you remove it very carefully, it's possible to re-install it later with the same stickum that's on it.
3. Look in the cavity where you removed the sticker.  Proceeding from left to right, here's what you'll see...
    Phillips head Screw (Holds the keypad in)
    Small Silver Potentiometer (VR1001-VHF Deviation Adjustment)
    Small Silver Potentiometer (VR1002-UHF Deviation Adjustment)
    Small White Potentiometer (TC1001-DONT TOUCH!  CTCSS Tone Adjustment!!!)
    Phillips head Screw (Holds the keypad in)
4. Take a small Phillips head Screwdriver and turn both VR1001 and VR1002 about 1/8 turn clockwise.
    This will increase the VHF and UHF deviation and fix the low Tx audio problem.
    If it's not enough Tx audio, simply turn both pots another 1/8 turn.
    Make sure to turn both pots the same amount!
5. Replace the NiCd sticker, battery, and antenna.
6. You're Done!
Proceed at your own risk.

Hi thanks everyone who had thoughts on my FT50R, i have seen those pots as i have had radio out of case several times trying to fix on off switch, in the end i changed the orange button to a tiny pusk to make switch, and now works fine every time, will try VR1001 and VR1002, and the low audio was using ths internal mic,

many thanks to all
