Hi, Bob -

Following is from this webpage:

I would try this first.

How do I reset the radio? -or- Why won’t the radio reset?
To reset the radio, turn it off, hold down the PTT button and the button directly beneath it and keep holding those buttons while turning the radio on. Within two seconds you will see on the display ’Are you sure you want to Initialize radio?’ and then Confirm above the green key and Exit above the red key. If you are sure you want to carry out the reset, press the green key and the radio will be reset.

On new firmware version 878 radios, if you do not see this displayed on screen, there is a setting in the CPS that needs to be changed, otherwise holding in the buttons for resetting will have no effect. Startup Reset needs to be set to ON to enable reset to be carried out.

I just got finished loading v1.13 of the firmware into the radio. It all seems to have gone well, but the instructions say to reset the radio. I followed the instructions but never got the reset radio screen? Has anyone else updated? Were you able to reset the radio?


Thanks, Bob
