I just received the Alinco DJ500 HH.  Looks like a very nice radio - well constructed, good button feel.

However, like many others have said the manual for these foreign made radios is POOR.

I'm trying to setup operation on a single local repeater.  I have been successful to enter the frequency (146.715), the 'minus', the correct tones (146.2), offset (.6).  When I hit the PTT it fails to transmit and "OFF" is displayed with a series of beeps.  Consulting the manual is of no help whatsoever.

What gives?  Any assistance appreciated.  73,  Rich, K3VAT

If a European model, it may not TX there! Some of them only TX 144.000~145.995MHz / 430.000~439.995MHz ...

also recheck that you have the offset set correctly - of the decimal point is missing, it could be trying to transmit on 140 .715, which would generate the OFF flag when you keyed it up.
