I recommend before starting to worry, perhaps unneccessarily, that you rename the ESDR2 folder in C:\Users\computer-name\AppData\Local\Expert Electronics to something else whilst ESDR2 is closed. This preserves the working folder so it can be reinstated and will force ESDR2 to use fresh default settings on its next launch. Then check to see if there is power output after making some basic settting up (MIC, gain, PA, etc). If still no output then you'll know it is not software related.

No Steve, there is no need. Just launch ESDR2, it will create a new ESDR2 folder (= default settings). Then just do the basic set up and check if you have output.

OK, what a nuisance. Roman can log in remotely and check it. I hope he solves the problem for you. Return the original ESDR2 folder to being the working one; I expect you already have.

Not only will Roman reply to you 100% and look into the issue, he will ensure Waranty is honoured I am sure if the worst comes to the worst. I'd be surprised if there was a hardware fault, though they do happen of course.

I have also a fault on my MB1 and am waiting on Roman too. He's going to have a busy Monday morning.

Regards,

Erik.

Not directly related to your issue but I can confirm what Erik has said in that you will get excellent support from Roman/Expert.

In early May I had a problem with no output on 6m which, with the E's about to start wasn't brilliant..!
Roman was quick to respond sending me comprehensive details of the fix required, which was successful, having since worked 31 countries//SSB on 6m with no issues..

John

Hi, everyone!
Thank you very much for your kind comments, I'm blushing, honestly :oops:

To the issue at hand, please clarify, do you have output power on other bands? Thus, there is no output power only on the 40M band?
Please make sure that in the antenna switch you've selected the correct antenna connector.
