Hi was wondering if anyone else had this problem with these.The r492 jumper is missing on the front display for face programming,but my kpg-4 cable and kpg29d software is not working either.Checked com ports,have a similar tk880h that programs just fine with the kpg-4 cable and kpg49d software.Have tried to read the radio with kpg49d software just to see if the radio is readable.Could someone have overclocked the radio with too fast a computer?Any help would be much appreciated.

Never mind junked it for parts,someone went solder gun happy inside the front panel,not worth even bouncing it off the ground.

Kenwood supplies the programmer with 12V from the SB line inside the radio..If a 6 pin plug is inserted into a 8 pin jack for programming, sometimes the SB ckt gets shorted and blows a pc strip or SMD jumper...poor design IMHO...they should have put some resistor limit protection there....when a radio cannot be read, chances are the SB ckt has been blown and its a PITA to repair in some cases..
