XPR5550 Screen Blank

Postby rainbowpenguin » Fri Sep 15, 2017 8:14 pm

Picked up an XPR5550 on ebay. More often than not the screen does not turn on when powering up. Otherwise it seems to work normally. Once in a while the screen turns on when powering up, then stays on the whole time radio is on. Tried another control head with the same results.

Has anyone else seen this? Suggestions?

Firmware 2.08.01

I think you found the reason it was on ebay.

You could try to pop the front panel on the trunk unit off to ensure the cables inside are properly seated.

Send it to the depot if you can't get it to work. $300 gets you a new radio. They don't repair them, they exchange them.

Reseated everything and still doesn't work. Off to the depot! Thanks!
