Maas CRT270 Encoder Problem

 

 

I was (still am) really happy with my chinese Dualband Radio, till I noticed some problems with the VHF Section on the Radio. I did not really bother to investigate the problem till I noticed that the rotary knob(encoder), which is used to tune the VFO, is not working anymore. Since I can not really operate the Radio in VHF Mode I had to find the error. I deassembled the radio and checked the soldering on the front panel (this is were i suspected the error to be) and resoldered couple of components. That did not solve the problem as I expected, it seems the encoder is broken. So I have to find a replacement :(
