Anyone got a uv5re

Postby Southwales » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:44 pm

Hi, has anyone got a uv5re and can confirm if the backlight should still turn off after a pre set user defined time, I have set it to 5 seconds but it is just staying on in scan and search mode. In frequency more it will turn of after 5 seconds after a key press, it's a pain as it means why scanning or searching the light is permanently on and is draining the battery quicker, I have the uv5r and on that model the light does turn off after 5 seconds in any mode, wondering if my uv5re is faulty or is the uv5re supposed to stay illuminated, I have checked the firmware on both radios and it is the same, I have also tried resetting the radio but still the same, anyone confirm if there uv5re is the same? Thank you.
