Hello.
On my 9900,  I was transmitting & the lcd went black, the power flashed off momentarily then came back on , this has happened a few times.
What could be causing this please?
I'm  using a 13.8 v power supply unit.
Many thanks.

What size power supply is it how many amps.
Would think you would need 15/20amp for that radio.
Also double check the connections on it.

Power supply is NOT up to the job.
If you want to use the radio turn the output power right down.
It could and will fail and damage the radio.
You need to get a bigger Amp supply i would suggest a 30A if you can but 20a at the lowest.

30Amp power supply is better if you can run to the price.
You will be future proof for when you get your Ham ticket and get a HF radio lol.
Radio is a bad bug to catch and i think you have the symptoms

😆 I definitely have the bug .
Very expensive for power supply, some cost more than the radio 😆.
Can you recommend anywhere to buy one.?

like Alan says Pauline, when i first got back into Radio...... my little 5A 13v power supply just sort of made a nosie of "yeh right im running that "......
gald you got sorted loads on the market but 30A plus as you say when you get the bug, like me ,you will be getting more and more radio gear and a ticket at some point, doing my foundation soon............. not saying when but this year...... all thanks to all the Guys on here and my local club.... carnt wate to give a call on a ham band and get a shout back.. been my dream for many a year, an old G3 that i used to help out will be proud R.I.P.
