Mine did this over the weekend.
I selectively wapped it with the palm of my hand on each of the 6 sides until one of them made it work again.
A hit against underneath the keypad did the trick.
I believe there is a ribbin cable underneath the keypad at the base of the radio that gets dirty, or comes loose. That worked for me, your results may vary.
I seen this complaint also mentioned by others on yahoo groups PRO-97, they took theirs apart and reported a ribbon cable as the cuplrit.
search for: q-tips and grease, I think.
