Keypad and LCD Repairs
Probably the most common faults on the Codan 9xxx series of radios are:
a keypad with buttons that are very hard to push. The On/Off button seems to be the first to go,
in fact I've even had radios sent to me with "wont power up" faults whereby the actual fault was the keypad.
No matter how hard I pressed the radio wouldn't power up. I have dissected a faulty keypad, and what it
looks like is that over the years the glue that sticks the front film to the PCB behind it leaches its way in
between the switch contacts and causes problems.
