Hi,

Just made it to the "It is now safe to apply power to the amplifier" step.

S/N 1591, Rev G Board.

I've followed along with the builder steps and checked off as i proceeded, checked solder joints with a Loupe (10x lit mag glass).

I have the QSK kit installed.

I have the ATU, but haven't built or installed it per the instructions yet.

I've tried R111 in three positions, turning the rig off and disconnecting power each time (Basically full clockwise, center, and full counter-clockwise).

I am using a Bioenno 12v pack at 13.3v for my power source.

When I turn the power switch on, I hear the clicks of the relays and I get the Power LED lit. nothing on the screen. I've waited about 5-10 seconds each time.''''

I'm going back through my steps now. I searched the site for "Display Power" and other various terms but didn't find anything. I was hoping for some troubleshooting steps with power applied.

I pulled the front panel and took the display board off. Turns out I double checked step #11 & 13 because I didn't solder the 16 pins to the actual panel in step #13. Easy fix. Once I applied power, I got power to the screen, but nothing was visible which was contrast. Of course I turned the contrast the wrong way the first time. After I got something to show, I realized I could adjust contrast with power applied which is much easier to do.

I am now on the final steps, trying to find all my test leads to adjust the DC bias (and of course the batteries in MM just died).
