Shhh! Don't tell XYL that it might be just a battery. Will check that, but just got home from Paris TX, purchased new TS590SG in a "Crazy Deal" from Main Trading Company.

You may be correct in assessing the problem. THe TS-570 does have a battery and my best guess would be that is the problem. Several years ago I had similar problem with my TS-850SAT and it went screwy.

Replacing battery solved the problem. There a several instructions and videos on the net about replacing TS-570 battery. This may very well be a quick fix !

Some Kenwoods  (my TS690S for example) have a mercury battery to keep memory alive. Mine is a CR2430, about the size of a US quarter, with solder tabs, located d-e--e---p  behind front panel.  Been several years since I did a lobotomy, but, full instruction on the www.
