Default ICOM 504 HELP

I HAVE A NEW ICOM 504 3 WEEKS OLD I HOOKED IT UP AND IT WAS WORKING GREAT . I LOST MY VOLUME TO A VERY
LOW WHISPER TRIED HOOKING IT UP TO EXTERNAL SPEAKER
SAME THING VERY VERY LOW. IT TRANSMITS FINE .
I READ THE MANUEL OVER AND OVER ALL DAY AND
TRIED EVERYTHING THEY SAID AND ITS STILL THE SAME.
I THINK I MUST HAVE PUSHED THE WRONG BUTTONS TO CAUSE THIS BUT I CAN NOT GET IT BACK.

You have tried adjusting the volume knob, right? The 1st knob on the lower.

The RX function doesn't affect the speaker on the front of the unit. Even when in RX mode (external hailer speaker on), the front speaker still continues to function normally. So I doubt that is it, but you still should make sure the RX isn't on.

Thanks Guys I spoke with ICOM TECH and he thinks it
is a lose ribbon bar inside the unit . That sucks the unit is 3 weeks old and all hooked up to the gps and that means
I have to disconnect it pack it and ship and wait a month
for its return.

Visko1,
Before you waste yoru time shipping it, it takes 2 seconds to open up the 504 radio. There are 6 philips head screws on the back of the lip that flush mounts it, unscrew them and it comes right apart. There are 2 ribbon cables that connect the front of the radio to the back of the radio, thye both just plug into a little slot, and could easily not be installed properly, and that is probably what Icom was referring to.

I'd simply open it up and check those two wires before shipping it. There is a rubber gasket between the two pieces and it goes right back together. If you don't find anything loose, you could then ship it to Icom, nothing lost but two minutes.
