500 won't scan 1240-1300

Just tonight I was trying to do a ham search and realized that the scanner locked up the second it got to ham search 6 (1240-1300 Mhz). Curious, I went into limit search and realized the scanner refuses to scan anything within 1240 Mhz to 1300 Mhz range. I then put the scanner into tune and put in 1240 Mhz and even on pause, hitting the up/down arrows, I cannot get the scanner to go up in frequency. Has anyone else run into this weird problem?

Just a note, all the other band plans within the 500 work as expected. Also, when I put in 25.00 Mhz in tune mode and hit the down arrow, the scanner should go to 1300 Mhz, right? Well mine locks up
