Hi all, I have a Uniden 400 PR27UK radio which is in excellent condition however it doesn't work. When switched on the signal meter bulb lights but no LED channel display. No sound and TX/RX lights stuck on. If I gently rub my finger over the audio IC there is a ruffling noise coming out of the speaker. If I put in the mic and TX the RX light goes out but both TX and RX lights come back on when mic depressed.

It's a different board to the basic Audioline or Uniden 100 type board, it is a PA-198 AB. Any ideas?

Checked with a known good mic and without a mic. The display would come on anyway without a mic would it not?
