Has anybody figured out how to do a hard reset on the UV-5R* radio?



I am not talking about powering on and pressing the menu button to the reset option.



Thanks

Hello, I'm new to this but I did this yesterday Menu 40 and go from there. It resets to out of the box condition with chi. voice, you can reset that.

Press [Menu][40] and [Menu] again to reset the radio.

Yes, after the reset with menu 40 it resets to chinese. Go to [MENU][14] press [MENU] and select english.

What Tony wants a 'hard' reset. The menu 40 (RESET), what most everyone calls a 'factory' reset, is far from it. It only resets the menus back to factory, resets the VFOs and creates 2 channels (see the Reference for UV-5R Menus for details). There are a bunch of settings that are not reset. For example, the Power-on and 6+Power-on messages are not reset, the band limits are not reset, etc.

The best we could do right now is to get new UV-5R owners to download the memories of their UV-5Rs using CHIRP before they do anything with their radios (besides turning them on) and create a library of 'factory' images.

This is another good example that a menu 40 (RESET) is NOT a factory reset. Out of the factory, the UV-5R has menu 14 (VOICE) set to ENG. A 'reset' changes menu 14 to CHI.

Thanks Jim

I have some software developers that were testing the programming on the radio and somehow it froze the radio. This means that Menu [40] is not an option.



We are looking for something like a control alt delete to bring it back to factory settings.

If the incorrect software version was used, you have a " bricked" radio. You always have to read from radio first before uploading to it and save tha blank. img file. If that was not done you need to find the firmware version of your radio and ask someone in the group to e-mail a blank .img file.

Thanks. That sounds like the solution. That is what they did.

Tony,Describe what you mean by 'froze'. Does anything work? The worst I've seen until this is people getting their TX locked out. As far as I know that condition has always been recoverable. What you have sounds serious. You've probably done this already, but just in case, have you removed the battery?

Hi Jim

I am not exactly sure because I did not see the unit. A friend of mine is testing a software package for a variety of radios. He told me that one of the features of this software is to be able to write to the radio without getting the image. My guess is it does that step automatically. When the software company was testing the code for that feature on a Baofeng they accidentally froze the unit. It will turn on but buttons do not work. Not sure what the screen says.



I am going to suggest that they join this group for further support.



Thanks

Always read from radio first and save the blank .img file If the incorrect software is used with your firmware version chances are you "brick" your radio.

I went on vacation and left my UV-5R turned on the kitchen counter.

When I returned the thing was completely dead.

I put it on the charger and left it overnight but it doesn't work any more !!!



Most of my MENU settings are what I had programmed.



But I Have no RX/TX capability any more, NADA



I looked thru the manual for a "Hard Reset" procedure and found nothing.



Has anyone had a problem like this and what's the cure.

Is the battery good. Does the radio have power. Did you try cleaning the contacts?

Remove the battery from the radio, then put it back. It may have gone into a protection mode and this will force a reset. Let us know if this helps.John K3NXUwww.miklor.com/uv5r �� �� �� ��From: baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.com [mailto:baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.com] On Behalf Of rjohnsonSent: Monday, September 16, 2013 12:28 AMTo: baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.comSubject: [baofeng_uv5r] Hard Reset on UV-5R, (No TX or RX) ???

It's the Lithium battery. They often will not accept a charge once totally discharged.

The UV-5R shuts off when voltage gets too low so it does not totally discharge the battery. ��And he said his menus were working..which means he has power..so the battery is not dead. ��Menu 40 is their reset. ��You should measure the voltage on the battery.ideally it should be around 8.4V when fully charged.. Much over that and the battery would be overcharged.If it.s more than that your charger may be defective.. I.ve adjusted my TYT charger to stop at ~8.37V when done. �� ��Mike W9MDB ��From: baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.com [mailto:baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.com] On Behalf Of lists@...Sent: Sunday, September 15, 2013 8:12 PMTo: baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.comCc: baofeng_uv5r@yahoogroups.comSubject: Re: [baofeng_uv5r] Hard Reset on UV-5R, (No TX or RX) ???
