George

I don't think I saw your message. The only FT736R message I can remember 
was from Tony about his fading display.

I have an FT736R and repair it myself. The rig has been very relaible (I 
bought it second hand) and the only major failure was the complete loss 
of audio (open circuit resistor in the recoupling part of the supply to 
the audio output amp). Apart from that I have suffered blown lamps and 
dry joints on the key connector.

I have the technical manual.

I don't know of I can help, but if it's something I'm familiar with I'll 
do my best.
