Default 16SZ shutoff

Today during pre-flight went to cycle the gear (SE switch) and the radio just shutoff and wouldn't restart. After loading everything back into truck I grabbed the radio, returned SE switch back to normal position and radio fired right up. I then cycled switch again and same thing, radio shutoff. Repeated this process two more times at the field and just went home. Got home fired radio up and cycled the switch repeatedly and it hasn't shut down once. Grab the jet plug it all the in, cycled the switch and everything else and radio didn't shut down one time. Ofcourse at this point your confidence in the radio is shot. I've had it since May of this year and not even the slightest hiccup until today. Anyone ever experience that issue?

If you are in the USA I suggest opening a service ticket. This is unusual behavior.
