[XV] K3 locks up when XV connected

eric norris
I have had my XV-144 and XV-432 disconnected for some time while working some issues with Elecraft Support.  I am now hooking everything back up again, but when I attach the control cable from the XV to the K3 the K3 locks up and will not respond to any control inputs, including the PWR button.  When I disconnect the control line, the K3 comes back.  I have a PR6, Top Ten Band Decoder, P3, and the XVs all sharing the ACC line.  This worked fine before, but I remember having this problem also in the past but I cannot remember what I did to fix it.  TX INH setting?  Does anyone know?  

Thanks es 73,

Eric WD6DBM

I've had the same problem before, but it was always one or more of the following:

Broken or not properly soldered wire inside one of the connectors to/from the K3/transverter;
K3's XV1/XV2 address doesn't match the dip switches inside the transverter(s);
Transverter didn't have power available to them prior to turning on the K3.

Check those, and you'll probably find the problem.
