Default DX8 sounds at shut down...

All of a sudden today, when I shut off my DX-8 it starts the shutdown beeps but after the first 2 beeps it sounds like it's shorting out and the remaining sounds are all screwed up. Anyone else have this this problem?? After having to send it in last summer in the middle of the season, I am not going to be a happy camper if I have to do it again this summer..

First 2 beeps? When mine shuts down it only makes 2 short beeps/tones total. What version of AW are you running? Is it possible you have the knob fairly perfectly centered?

Mine only made 2 tones on shut down till today. Current updates on the radio and has been fine till I used today. Now several different tones after the first 2 and what sounds like static.

Move the knob off center.

That fixed it. But I have to ask how the knob would cause that?

The knob makes a centering trim as you move it through center.

When you turn the radio off, the voltage begins to move downward. As it does, the knob can (if close to center) look like it's moving to the CPU. So the program does exactly what it's supposed to - make the centering tone.
