I just got back into a VFD and have had the mt1000 since 1990 with no problems with it. I reprogrammed the new radio freqs into radio about 2 weeks ago and had some trouble getting all the way to 100% on the upload side, after about 2-3 tries got the program in. The radio worked fine but didn't get the power up tone but everything else seemed fine. Friday I got the tone out codes for the new FD and was tring to program them into radio, when I noticed the back of the radio was really hot (one of the screws that holds the belt clip on). I disconnected the programming cable and RIB, now the radio is completely dead, will not do anything. Check the Battery voltage and everything else physical - but nothing. Now everytime I connect and try to read or program radio I get a serial bus acess error 003. Can anyone give me some ideas as to how to get working again.

Re: After reading programming Radio Died
Unfortunately you have a corrupted code plug. The radio will need to be serviced to clear the corruption. Or if you have a clean copy of the original programming, you can try reprogramming it. (Note: Do not use the version you had saved which led to the corruption.)

1) You were right to change to new batteries. Yet, the problem you describe is the same problem that would present itself if you had bad or poorly charged batteries. Check your contacts where the batteries touch inside the radio for damage or film/debris. Clean with a pencil eraser.
2) Is it possibly you have changed a setting, or have your radios programmed to a repeater (duplex only) frequency? Reprogram (if possible) your radios to a very basic setting with the code set to zero (off), and all special features turned off. Then using a basic radio-to-radio frequency test the radios again
3) If reprogramming is not possible due to the radio shutting itself down, then you have a battery or charging problem. Be certain the radio is turned off when on the charger and the battery is clean and inserted the right direction. Try charging both radios overnight. Observe your charger, does it seem like it is operating properly?
Basically, problems are either the radio, the battery, or the charger. By process of elimination you should be able to determine which one is the culprit.
Your radio needs to be reprogrammed or repaired. This type of error can occur for no reason, or during an interruption in programming. Check your programming/test set-up. Do not try to reprogram using the same codeplug (saved version of programming) as previously used, as it may be corrupt. If you cannot get the error to clear with a fresh programming, the radio will need to go to Motorola to have the error cleared.
The Mag One BPR40 is dealer programmable. You have two choices:
1) Reprogram your CP100s to match the new BPR40s. For this you would need to know what the dealer programmed the BPR40s to... OR
2) Take your BPR40s back to the place of purchase and request they reprogram them to match your CP100s. This should be a free service since you just purchased the BPR40s. They will need to know some settings from the CP100s to make the match.
This happens if you leave Dealer Programming Mode without programming any channels or if your programming gets corrupted. To re-enter Dealer Programming Mode hold "PTT" + "MON" + "SCAN" and turn on the radio. Once in DPM your channels can be reprogrammed.
In order to reprogram this Motorola GP339 you need to have a programming software, radio interface box and programming cable for this radio then you can read and change frequency in it. To reprogram to UHF channels this radio must be in UHF band. Good luck!
An eeprom error can occur during programming due to several factors, it may have been as simple as a momentary glitch in the computer, radio or cable, or other unknown cause. Once you've discovered the error, you need to get rid of any saved codeplugs associated with the problem radio. You can try cloning another radio's codeplug back into the unit to see if it clears the error. If this does not work, there is nothing you can do using the CPS software to resolve the error. The radio would need to go back to the Motorola factory depot or a qualified/experienced service facility to have the error cleared and have the radio reprogrammed.
The 800MHz MT2000 software can only be purchased from Motorola and you can not purchase it unless you are the owner of the 800MHz Site or a Motorola Dealler that sales system radios. Your Local motorola dealer will program the radio for you but you must have written permission from whom ever is in charge of that system.
THE SP100G is essentially the same radio as the SP100U UHF business band unit that Maxon made at the same time, just pre-programmed for GMRS. I believe there is a programming kit for this radio (Model number: SPK400C) which may still be available for purchase from Maxon directly. Otherwise, your best bet is going to be contacting your local Maxon dealer to see if they have the capability to program he radio.
