The first place to start is cleaning the connection between the radio and the antenna wire.

Then check when you punch the button on the MIC.....does the TX light up on the screen. If NO....Then your mic is shot.

Check voltage going to radio before and during transmit. Receive draws very little current, transmit draws a lot more. The fact that you can receive says the antenna is working some.

The mic is probably shot. Had the same thing happen to mine.

I had the same problem once and turned out to be a bad battery switch. When I took it apart it flew all to pc. When it was mfg. they used screws that were about 1/4" to long. They bottomed out and caused the switch to separate but not enough to disconnect the contacts. Does your battery switch feel tight as always ? Mine got loose is how I found the problem.
