Problem with supply voltage
Psu under or over voltage
If that checks out ok make sure all connection are good inc fuse.
Can't remember if the under over voltage protection is user config in the menu/software if it is this also may be wrong

What psu is being used ?

Could be an under-powered PSU. If you're running a standard 3-5am PSU it may be struggling to supply on full power. Try running same radio on low power and see if the issues repeats. If not, then it's probably the power supply.

what is the radio rated as putting out on transmit?
