9-pin mini din?  that doesn't sound right.. The cat port on a yaesu is 
an 8-pin mini din, which is close.. but the data port is a 6 pin mini din..?

If the plug is correct, just try manually grounding the PTT line in the 
jack.. I've had some troubles recently with my aging FT8100, which seems 
to now need a higher pull-down current than my MFJ 127x's will sink.  
Yet my 857 (and the 897 before I sold it) still work fine..  So just 
worth keeping in mind that you might need to tweak the pull-down circuit 
in the TT if you can manually make the 706 transmit by taking that line
