6600M, not a good beginning.
New radio landed in the UK Wednesday after a year on the waiting list. Very quick turn around and dispatch by ML&S and arrived Thursday lunchtime. Very happy!
Hooked everything up that evening, and thought it very unusual for the screen not to load first time. Ah ha I thought, must need software on PC. Radio did an update, and still nothing on the screen, so loaded PC again and checked all was well on there. Followed by another reboot of PC and radio, with still nothing showing on the 6600M screen.
The 6600M screen and none of the buttons light up at all, very strange. Load it up on the PC, and works great. Then I thought I must have missed something in a menu. Found nothing, and decided on a full reset. Rebooted the radio and PC, still nothing apart from the power button illuminating correctly as it did from unpacking.
Next try was to use my Maestro, did the software update, then it hung… Rebooted it and that worked fine, phew! So now I can switch between the PC and Maestro, but still nothing on the 6600M screen. Now not happy!
Phone call this morning to Tony at ML&S and quickly explained my problem. He asked if I could forward a video of the issue, which I did. They then requested a return and arranged a pick up.
I wonder if anybody else has had a similar experience, and if so, what was the outcome?
