Presumably my earlier suggestions to the 736 forum all checked out, unsuccessfully. One other thing to check: If you have a volt meter, measure the potential across the key. Mine is a tad over 7 volts. If you get zero, it's possible that there is indeed something wrong inside the rig.
I've checked both of the rig's owners manuals, as you probably already have, and the diagrams for plugging in a key or paddles are identical.
