System quick keys not working

I have used Butel to set up three systems on the 396XT. Everything is working fine except that I cannot toggle the systems off and on with the quick keys. At the expense of a longer post, I will try to give as much info as possible.
Three systems set up and transferred to the 396XT. Each system assigned a quick key, numbers 1 to 3.
To verify that the QKY's are set properly, when I go to the first system, edit site>set quick key> it shows 1. Second system shows 2, etc.

Screen reads:
"System name"
ID Scan
856.1125
S0:123------
GRP 12345---- (these change depending upon system)

Each SQK flashes as each respective system scans.

If I press 1 and 2 to toggle systems 1 and 2 off, the screen reads: S0:**3------ as it should, except that it continues to scan all three systems. Even if I press 1, 2 and 3 to toggle off all systems, (S0:***------) it continues to scan all three systems. I would think if I attempt to turn off all systems that I would get an error message.

Because everything else is operating fine, I am sure that I have something set wrong, but for the life of me, I cannot figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as my next course of action will involve beer!!!

My first guess would be that you either have a duplicate system in the scanner that has no SQK assigned to any site, or in the systems you do have programmed you have a site that does not have an SQK assigned.

The first could happen if you don't tell Butel to "Erase First" when writing a new configuration to the scanner.

camr,

If all of your sites have an SQK assigned, then turning off all systems should produce a "Nothing to Scan" message on the screen... :)

OK, you guys are freakin' geniuses. Yes, when sending over the systems to the scanner, apparently I had not checked "delete systems". I had piled up three sets of systems with the same name. The beers that I was being driven to drink are now officially yours!!!!!
Thank you very much to each of you for helping out!!!!!
