Unhappy New TYT MD-390 GPS - Bricked? Password problem

Hello all in the DMR community. Today i received my new in box TYT MD-390 with GPS. I installed the software (CPS MD390 V1.36), read the factory codeplug, saved it. I downloaded a codeplug from the HoosierDMR network "MD-380" section, and wrote the codeplug to the radio. As i had read somewhere that the380 and 390 were the same boards and codeplugs were interchangeable. (this may be my mistake...)

With the "new" codeplug, the radio turns on, asks for password, i enter 00000000 it proceeds, and then just tells me that the screen is locked. Press OK and * to unlock. I do that, and it immediately locks again, and again, and again. Letting it sit, it eventually just shows "Unprogrammed"

So now i go back to the CPS, and when i try to read or write to the radio it asks for a password. i enter the default 00000000 and it does not work. I didnt change this password...
Because of this password issue im unable to read or flash the original codeplug back... You guys think my radio is toast?? :/

Any help is greatly appreciated, as i was really looking forward to the arrival of this radio and the new world of DMR... :/

Turn on the radio while holding down the PTT button and the button above it. Then try reloading the factory default codeplug.

The catch is that the GPS and non-GPS radio codeplugs are not compatible.

Also, what CPS are you using? Most recent version is 1.36.

Thumbs up Fixed

hey jonwienke, i am running 1.36, the latest. And i had tried reflashing the firmware last night. The radio is/was already on the latest, and rewrote the firmware fine; however, that didnt clear the password.

But, some great news, i emailed TYT before heading to bed last night, and they emailed me back today with a different version of the CPS. It shows up as version 1.34 GPS, and came labeled "Password Delect".

It reads and writes without asking for programming password, and I was able to restore the stock codeplug. No more passowrd and fresh start! haha

Id be glad to share the password-less software with those who have the same issue!

I could really use a copy of that software for my 390 w/GPS that will be arriving soon.

Could you email to byobnet@yahoo.com or provide a link?

Thanks!

Might be easiest to post the CPS on a file sharing site like SendSpace, then folks can just fetch it themselves... and you don't get flooded with a bunch of 'me too' requests.
