In Settings/Radio push 'Test CAT.'  While it's green push Test PTT. If that does not go red, and the radio does not go into transmit, you are not ready to operate WSJT-X. You need to play with settings as noted above by Kari until the Test PTT goes read and the radio actually goes into transmit mode. Good Luck and 73

I assume you are using single USB-cable between your rig and computer.

Try setting PTT method to "CAT", TX audio soutce to "Rear/data" and mode
to "Data/Pkt".

You also need rig menus to set up correctly. I recently sold my 7610 so
I cannot help you there but I'm sure there are some 7610 users on the
list who can.
