I've owned a TH-D72 for over a year now. No problems with the radio.
Yes, a simple tap of the MENU key should take you into the menus. However, is the radio's keyboard locked? Do you see an icon on screen of a skeleton key? If the keyboard is locked, press and hold the F key for a couple of seconds.
