Sounds kind of like a resistor blew up, but that's a SWAG (Scientific Wild Ass Guess). Is there a resistor in series with a supply lead or in a cathode that might be cracked?

During my initial tune up, the transmitter acted as it it did not want to tune. There was an audible low pop. Then no power. Some one suggested maybe a breaker in the power supply chain, but I dont recognize one.  The ham i got it from "claimed" that it worked. It seemed to, but it wouldnt tune and now no power. I followed tune up proceedure from manual exactly. I was using 80m xtal and antenna. I also have matching vfo. Any Ideas?

I have had a DX-60 for a couple of weeks now. I have done repairs and mods on it and it works great.
What seems to be the problem with yours?

Todd, my first thoughts after reading your message.

1. If you can find someone in your area that would be great.
2. If not start reading, and ask questions. (This is how I learned)
3. HV is not something you should be afraid of, it is however something 
you need to understand and respect.

Best of luck.
