706 mk2g does not want to stay on. It only clicks on and off

706 mk2g does not want to stay on. It only clicks on and off. I have used different power cords and power supplies with the same problem. I have noticed it works fine for after it has been unplugged for awhile, but after a few days it goes on and off by itself and then finally goes off altogether.

Doug,

I had a similiar problem with an original ICOM 706. I found that by cleaning the contacts of the removable
head unit the problem stopped. It drove me nuts for a while.
