If there is a setting that indicates a "talk-around" vs "repeated" channel, the radio might be introducing an improper offset, and might be "listening" to the wrong frequency internally. I'm not sure.
Also, depending on radio model, sometimes the "monitor" button will let you listen as an open-squelch on the repeater frequency, whereas other radio models, it listens on the repeater-input frequency. If you are close enough to hear other traffic on the input frequency, then I would begin to suspect an improper offset or something like it has happened during radio-programming.
It sounds like maybe the best solution would be to try again to find that menu-item you changed before and try chainging it again.
Hope this helps,
