Default TKR850 pgm issue

I have several TKR850-1 radios. Where is the field to turn on the Display. Help says Pwr save on. I have several files and some have the display ch1 and others blank. I need a clue here. Not a real issue here but I would like it to display the channel all the time.

For what ever it is worth, the last couple TKR 750's and 850's that I have seen have always had the display in a default ON.

I have never seen a software setting for the display.

If you have a display that is not reading, it is possiable that the modual is bad.

This does not appear to be a hardware issue. I load the original file and ch1 comes on. I load the file I read from another like radio and the display for ch1 is off. Go to the help menu in the software and it talks about this as a power saving feature but does not say how to make the change.

The other radio had some aux functions programmed and I was just going to clone that radio to this like radio for ease of setup. Now it is a challenge to see what I am missing in the programming.

Just to cover the easy stuff, you do have a number programmed under channel name right?

There are a few options for power save

Quote:
The TKR-850 has the DC Power Save feature. The DC Power Save Mode is activated when the DC Power Save On function is executed.

When the DC Power Save Mode is activated, all panel LEDs except the Power LED are turned off, and the audio amplifier and the DSP becomes inactive.

When the Display On function is executed while the repeater is in the DC Power Save Mode, all panel LEDs become active as normal status indicators on the repeater, and the audio amplifier and the DSP becomes active. However, when the Save Delay Timer A period expires, all panel LEDs except the Power LED are turned off and the audio amplifier becomes inactive again, and when the Save Delay Timer B period expires, the DSP becomes inactive.

When the DC Power Save Mode is turned on or off, up to 3 functions preprogrammed into the Save On function or Save Off function are executed in sequence.

We had one come in like that, it had nothing in the field "CH Name" and that is exactly what it displayed, nothing.
