Default TYT MD-390 Keyboard problem

I have an MD-390, and the keyboard is locked. Yes, I know how to unlock it per user manual, but it doesn't work with "OK" + *. I have tried to re-program with the basic program, in the hopes that it would reset the radio again. Well, it doesn't work. I can program the radio via the computer, put I can't get into the menu at all.

Does anyone experienced this problem, and if so, how can I fix it.

Thanks,
Scott N7KJ

I'm not sure how to unlock the key pad, but if your radio is a UHF radio I have one that I have absolutely no use for, it works perfectly fine, but it is just the MD 390 radio only, no battery or charger, just radio and antenna, it was with another radio I received, if you are interested, or it might help you out, let me know.

Read the radio with your cable. Go into MENU items, uncheck keyboard lock, send back to the radio

Thank you for the tip. I've done that too, and it doesn't work either. I have disabled any type of lock possible with the computer as well. From what I can tell, the program did what it is supposed to, but the keypad is still locked.

I was hoping someone would have a way of resetting the entire radio, since the manual doesn't offer this option.

Thanks for the tip. I had done that already, but the result is the same. The keypad is still locked.
