• 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.

I went to power on my NX5200 this morning and the radio did not power on. I put the radio in the charger last night as I normally do and this morning I have nothing. Radio was off when I put it in the charger and I had a green light this morning. I swapped batteries with another radio and still no power on but the other radio powered on with my battery so I don't feel it is a battery issue. Anything else I could check or am I going to just have to send it in to my dealer and let them handle it?

I am a lineman for the county.
I'd send it in to your dealer.

There's a couple of possibilities, however none of them would be a simple fix, unless you have the skills and tools to work on surface mount components and felt comfortable opening up the radio. I am assuming you've check the obvious stuff, like damage to the battery contacts?

Yes I have. They all look good.
