    Default 2051 help

    I just got a pro-2051 and I'm having trouble. I have programmed the trunked freq (I'm 99.9% sure I did this correctly) for my county but when it says trunked on the screen and scanning that bank it just says SCAN. It never says ID Scan or ID search and I have yet to hear anything. Any help? Thanks.

    It says Trunk and M on the screen... not sure what to do.

    .... The 'beartracker' function works good. We were out riding around and the warning light was on. Told a friend, there is a state patrol close by and less than 45 seconds later, he rolls by.

    cVr- i was trying to help Kermit out yest on AIM and it seemed he had everything right. but on the screen it said ID scan. i told him that thats probably the problem cuz it needs to say ID search so it can search the ID's instead of scan for ones that he doesnt have saved yet. im not sure...

    sounds correct! I figured he had some talk groups plugged in....

    yeah for some reason it would not switch to ID search no matter what he did. i think he did put in some talk groups but it still wouldnt pick em up

    No, it doesn't say ID scan or ID search. It says scan. I've tried with and without talk groups programmed.

    Ok I've asked over there and I'm getting some help.

    Another thing, could it possibly be internal? Like something broke or removed? The ebay seller I bought it from is willing to refund it if it's broken or even pay me if I find something wrong and fix it myself. Though I have no idea what to look for if I do go into it.
