Check to see if the keypad is 'lockedout'. If there is a 'key' icon in the display, then the keypad is locked and you will have to hold down the 'lock' key until you hear a beep and the 'key' goes away. Then you should be able to operate all the pushbuttons again. Okay?

Check to be sure keys are not locked out. Manually select channel 1. Key in the lowest frequency you wish to scan and press ENTER. Manually select channel 2. Key in the next higher frequency you wish to scan and press ENTER. Repeat this routine for all remaining channels. Enable scanning and you should be in business. Don't forget to lock out keys when you are finished.
