The circle with a line through it emblem indicates your radio is scrambling the channel chosen. Your key fail message likely indicates your radio has a programming problem or other problem requiring dealer assistance.

Best regards.

    "KEY FAIL" Simply means your encryption board has lost it's programming, or "KEY LOAD" It's not really a problem, or a malfunction, the radio is not programmed for infinite key retention , so as soon as the battery is removed from the radio, the keyload erases. This is done so that if the radio falls into the hands of the enemy,(YOU) they cannot listen to encrypted transmissions.

Key fail for motorola xts 2500


Sometimes portable radios forget their encryption keys, especially when it takes you longer than 30 seconds to change a dead battery. You may have to either re-flash the key into the radio or else change the software setting from security hardware equipped to NOT security hardware equipped, or else just ignore the key fail warning and realize that your transmission is no longer encrypted like it used to be.

I use a Motorola XTS 5000 2 way radio at work. It displays a message "Key Failure"' and intermittenly beeps. It will not allow transmissions. Can I program a fix or does it need to be repaired?


It needs to be looked by a programming technician in a radio shop. "Key Failure" means that a secure encryption key has not been loaded into the radio and you have set the switch for using encryption to the "on" position. This switch is located under the channel switch on top of the radio and in your case it should be set to the "O" position and not the "O" with the line through it. The XTS radios can be programmed to retain the encryption key when the battery is removed OR to keep the key even if the battery is removed, so it depends on how your radio was programmed as well.

Bleed over to other channels


When you make an announcement, It wil overide other normal traffic, Announcements take priority. Assuming you are useing a 6809 controller. Look at the announcement talkgroup, with your RSS or use CAS to look at the 6809.
Good Luck., Bill

IBook never completes loading, stuck at ble progress bar


I am running off memory, but I belive you can also hold either Option or Command key at chime startup and it will give you a visual option with booting to hard drive or disk drive.

Try that and see if it will show the option to boot from CD.

I would suggest probably reinstalling OS X

Symbol LS7708 - "enter" key programming


You will have to set up a new Suffix -- the ASCII suffix for a "field exit" is 7009. You can contact the Symbol/Motorola Help Desk at 1-800-653-5350. Have you manual handy. If you don't have a manual, download one at http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=6953101apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=118614144&stateId=1%200%20118568992
