Read the information and pdf at the Uniden firmware site. There are steps to recover the radio (key presses). Good luck.

BTW I had lots of issues programming my radio using the VFO knob. Use the hold and limit keys instead for scrolling through settings. The VFO knob caused lockups for me that got extremely frustrating. I'm not sure WTH is going on there.
