Title: Yaesu Password Reset
Post by: KE6IPY on October 06, 2012, 05:18:23 PM
A friend of mine has a Yaesu FT-270R which went into password protection mode all by itself which prevents the radio from being used.  He never configured a password. 

The remedy Yaesu lists in the manual is a hard reset which will delete all 110 of his memory channels.  He's not tech savvy enough to reprogram the radio and leaves on a trip one week from today.  This means I will likely have to drive the 60 miles to do it for him, unless there's a way around this problem. 

I wonder if Yaesu has an undocumented master password to unlock it? 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated because I frankly don't have time to drive to his house this week.

My yaesu ft 857 has several "resets" one of which will reset radio with out deleating memories, perhaps he has that, look in the manual.

In this particular instance, the only reset allowed is the one that clears everything.
