This usually indicates a problem with the firmware, or the radio thinks that it is connected to a computer but it isn't. Basically, it is failing self test.

It might also be due to corrupted memory as well. You can reset the radio by popping the door off the bottom of the unit, and turning the switch marked backup off. Then apply power to the radio, and turn radio on. Everything has just been reset, and with a bit of luck, might begin to act like you would expect. The Backup switch turns the memory battery on and off. If it is dead, it may need to be replaced before the radio loses power again. See below for link to manual.

I am getting a "Err" message when trying to transmit

Almost always a programming issue. Somehow, the transmit frequency is not enabled or programmed correctly. Always include all the zeros when programming these. The decimal point is critical also.

Yaesu 270 not transmitting nor receiving

Hi this can be down to many reasons, radio keypad locked, receive on tone squelch, set on "Relay" or "Repeater", or even radio failure. Without the radio I cannot help, but that may give you some ideas.

My Yaesu FT 270 R AA battery pack is corroded. The radio turns on if plugged into the wall, but not with the power pack (with fresh batteries). Suggestions, please?

contacts are covered with the corrosion as maybe the internals. Take a dremel tool with a wire brush and clean the contacts, or toothbrush with baking soda and water. Make sure to not get too much water inside the radio. You can also go to Radio Shack and get some contact cleaner spray to use.
