Try reflashing the firmware. I had a different issue with mine that was fixed by doing that. Seems some dealers flash the newest firmware before shipping them but don't use the associated flashing utility version with it.

Tytera downloads are available here:

The latest firmware fixes the battery charge icon problem.

As of today there's an even newer one that fixes a few more bugs. It's the .34 firmware.

Not many changes yet - but they did spell "repeater" right finally

Default White screen

I've had my MD=380 for six months and now have the white screen.

I've looked at replies from others on reloading firmware to fix. I've downloaded the current and previous versions, run the app to install them - no fix.

Apparently different issues are fixed by reloading current or past firmware versions.

I was poking around, like others, in the zone area when this started.

Does anyone have 'the fix'?

Appreciate any help on this.


73, Dave

Same Problem here with my MD-380. All of a sudden all I get is a white LCD screen. Radio seems to be functioning, but I am blind as far as changing channels or zones. Have tried reloading firmware, but that doesn't help. it's almost like the contrast is too high, Is the LCD blown ? My radio is only a month old.

I usually have the backlight on "constant"... it fixed the problem for me
