After many trials and tribs my F50V is mostly working and has a great receiver. It has taken months of off and on work. I finally sent it to a guy on Ebay who programmed it. That almost worked. One of us skrooed up a little because it will not scan. If he did I'm not gonna send it back a third time. However, it may be my problem. I do not know the correct button pushing sequence to make it scan and am to dumb to git it figgered out.
Can anybody tell me what the button pushing sequence is to make it scan ?
I could also use a " dont ever do this or u will mess up the programing " bit of advice.
Thanks in Advance,
Sarge

From what I can gather, the buttons SHOULD be programmed the same for all F50Vs. But there is no owners manual that tells you what it is. Only the dealers can tell u this read from the software programming. I gather that there may be a definite sequence of button pushes that u must learn. I was hoping to get this sequence from an owner via this forum.
Thamks for the reply, Sarge

Those buttons are all programmable and there is no "standard". Default, new out of the box, I don't believe a scan button is enabled.

If you're able to send the .icf file, I'd be more than happy to take a look.

Yall r so great !! But I dont know how to do that. I did find out about the tiny dot down in the bottom right corner means it is scanning. However, when the display light times to off the little dot goes away. I dont think it is scanning. I acn only hear the freq that I have manually selected .
TIA, Sarge
