I have a Kenwood TM-V71A 144/440mhz transceiver that is "locked up" in CBR ("Cross Band Repeater") mode. Note: In this mode, the Kenwood radio "acts" like a repeater.
When this transceiver is set for CBR mode, most other functions are disabled. I am unable to get it out of CBR mode. Note: I have used CBR mode many times, and I never had a problem getting the radio our of CBR mode until recently.
I have the SM (.pdf) and tried the "Full Reset" procedure and the "Adjustment Mode" procedure, but nothing happens. CBR mode prevents these other procedures from taking "effect".
This transceiver does not use an internal battery to hold memory settings, etc. Instead, it uses an eeprom.
I searched the web for a solution, but found none. I also used "contact us" at Kenwood's web site, but I have not received a response to the problem, only an acknowledgement they received my message.
Thank You in advance, John N3AOF
