It usually means the EEPROM chip in the radio (stores all the info like memory channels for scan etc.) is corrupted/damaged. From experience,in most cases the radio will work OK but will not "remember" anything eg. last channel, scan/quiet memories.
But in extreme cases I have seen weird things like channels in hexadecimal with letters A to E, more than 40 channels etc.
You could probably get it fixed, it's a fiddly job as the chip is a surface mount type, and then it will need to be programmed with the TX4200 software. But in the end, you still end up with an old radio, best put a little more money together to buy a new one.

I believe that the TX4200, like the TX4000 is programmed via the microphone socket. On My TX4000 you can get all this weird stuf by shorting certain michrophone socket pins - can also get a channel 25kHz below channel 1.
Just a thought, the microphone plug or cable may be faulty so remove it then re-power up the unit.
Cheers, Tony.
