Ok, here's the deal. There is NO audio coming from the speaker. I have the weather channel on ( full signal strength ) squelch turned off and still nothing?

Even did a factory reset and still nothing.

Any ideas anyone?


I'm trying to avoid putting a screwdriver to this.............


Thanks in advance..........

Try plugging a speaker mike or a speaker into the external jack. If no audio here, then I would check the volume control. If audio is on the external jack, then either the switch contacts on the plug are bad or the speaker wiring is broke off.

I don't have a VX-170 but looking at the manual it sounds like the Weather Alert Scan is ON. From page 45 in the manual:
"If you are just scanning the Weather Broadcast Channels, the VX-170’s receiver will remain muted indefinitely unless the Alert Tone is received. This yields a long period of monitoring time, as no power will be consumed via audio output while scanning for the Alert Tone is in progress."
Try turning off the Weather Alert Scan. Page 45 in the VX-170 owners manual.
