Default How to put a P7200 into programming mode?

I've been asked to check out a P7200 portable radio.

I'm very familar with P7100s.

But apparently, there's something different about how you put a P7200 into programming mode.
The usual 3 button hold doesn't work.

I've verified that the radio is responsive to every button. It's not a connection issue. PTT works and both other side buttons at least turn on the LCD backlight so I know they're being acknowledged.

I do have RPM to read the radio with.

But, what's the magic button sequence required to put it into program mode or what other tricks might
there be to this model?

The three-button trick is for updating the Flash/DSP only no? Try connecting the programming cable and power on pressing only the PTT.

Hey Elroy,

The process is outlined if you go into Help in RPM. Look under the section "Programming the Radio". Goes through the process of getting into both Programming and BurnApp mode.

Cheers,
SD.

The answer is that my specific programming cable is the wrong one. I use a data/keyload cable for my 7100IPs, etc. which is fine for programming those radios. But the 7200 must have the CORRECT cable connected to its accessory cable or it won't even allow you to enter programming mode.

It's a bit odd but that's what it is.

Actually if you don't have data enabled in the radio personality it'll go into program mode automatically when you try to talk to it with RPM. All the latest radios do this, and the latest P7100 code does it too. That way it won't care what cable you have attached.

Turn the radio on and hold down the PTT button. I think that will put it in program mode. Good luck.
