    Default VX-7200 Error 5

    Hi Folks,
    I inherited a VX-7200 mobile radio and upon power up gives me an ERROR 5 in the display.
    it refuses to do anything else.

    Any ideas what that error is and how to clear it?

    Thanks!

    Default

    If you have the correct programming software for that radio it will have default files for VHF and UHF. First thing is to try writing the proper default file to the radio. This is essentially a blank file with the original factory test freqs and settings.

    So I tried uploading and downloading from the radio with no luck. The radio knows im trying to talk to it since the display stops flashing and shows the radio ID during the process but no comms. It comes back and tells me to power up the radio.
    Thanks for the advice, bricked radios are no bueno.
