Bought the FT-2900R on 2/5/2010 Modified as follows: Remove the bottom cover of the radio. Carefully unplug and remove the speaker. Remove all 3 of the knobs from the front of the radio. You will need a metric allen wrench to remove the 3 front panel screws. Carefully pull the front face of the radio away from the body being careful not to disconnect the ribbon cable. Look inside of the front cover for 3 pads (see picture) Two of them are not solder jumpered and one is. De-solder the only pad that is jumped with a solder bead. Reassemble the radio. While powering up the radio press and hold the DW REV – A/N LOW – MW D/MR buttons simultaneously to perform a full reset. Confirm the reset when prompted by pushing MW D/MR.
