Manual says to hold down the # key for 5 secs. That just locks the keyboard.

I don't have this radio, I just looked at the manual for it. Are you in what the manual calls GMRS mode? That was the only place I saw GMRS mode mentioned so I am assuming that means Channel mode not VFO mode. You have probably already tried but maybe hold down the # button for longer than 5 seconds. Hopefully someone who knows what they are talking about will chime in.

Good luck. And if you find out let us know.

If i recall correctly (i have given my 5X away to someone) there is no NOAA "mode", you simply select the NOAA channel you want to listen to in channel mode.

I think you are right. I found the NOAA channels listed in channel mode.

Manual has lots of incorrect info...
