Gday all, having trouble working out a problem i am having wiring up a new GME tx 3420 uhf. It is wired +ve to battery with fuse. Earthed to -ve on battery. When power is on a code V3-03 appears. No other functions on the uhf work. The code appears regardless of an aerial being connected or disconnected. Anyone able to offer some advice?

No FAQ on gme website, the downloads are basically the same pdf. brochures that come with the radio. Google search also reveals nothing related to the V303 code.

Not quite sure about cell call Number, but no functions on the unit work. I just thought once power is on i'd be able to select the function and channel.

I think he means its CTSS scan number.

If you are travelling with a party and only want to talk amongst yourselves you can select a number and put it into each radio and then only they can talk to each other. They can still hear outsiders but cant be spoken to by them.

Check your manual for this and how to change or disable it..

Are you sure you havent spiked it when connecting it up

you must be getting power to the unit if something lights up. I think it is a take back to the shop problem.

owen

No resolution yet, I'm thinking faulty unit? Can assure no short occured upon setup. Emailed gme- see what they think it may be.

Hi yakodi,
Did you switch it on first without having the antenna connected?
If so that could be your problem.
It's a major no no and can cause major damage.
I have the same unit and the hand book has this plastered through it in big bold type.
May need to take it to an authorised repairer if this is the case.

It's an internal fault that can be recognised by the processor chip - there's nothing you can do to fix it.

It's unlikely to be anything related to the transmit output - these usually aren't monitored by the processsor on consumer radios.
