• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

My HT1250 display screen has started having issues. For some reason, the backlight works perfectly fine, but the screen isnt showing any text, battery icon, etc. Anyone have any idea what may be causing this issue?

It might be worth a try to open the radio case and disconnect/reconnect the two ribbon cables that connect the board and the display / front buttons. Sometimes they just need to be re-seated.

If the above suggestion doesn't work, the LCD probably needs to be replaced. They go bad after a while. They're not that hard to replace.

A single line on my LCD randomly goes bad for no reason. It seems like there is a 50/50 chance that when I power my radio that line of pixels will be on. It doesn't seem like it is temperature related or really anything else. Think this may be an LCD issue? Where do I go about purchasing a new LCD?
