Friend just bought a 396 xt. It had no preprogrammed systems in it like mine did. When you turn the unit on, I get the error message Pre-programming list error. I have programmed the scanner and it works fine. Any idea how to make this go away?

Check the manual and do a hard reset, that should restore original programing
