När jag försöker att läsa från radion får jag meddelandet " An error has occurred. Incorrect "Model" selected.
Håller jag knapp 3 nertryck på radion så får jag upp BFB297. Serienummer 13U0997705.

Holding the 3 key has not provided the firmware version since the year 2013. All UV-5R type radios since then report BFB297 no matter what the "real" firmware version is.

The 'Incorrect "Model" selected' would indicate that the radio does not have a firmware version that CHIRP recognizes. Please include the debug.log file. The How To Report Issues page shows how to locate the debug.log file.

Google translated to Swedish:

Håll knapp 3 har inte lämnat firmware version sedan år 2013. Alla UV-5R typ radioapparater sedan rapportera BFB297 oavsett vad "riktiga" firmware version är.

Den "Fel" Model "valt" tyder på att radion inte har firmware version som CHIRP erkänner. Inkludera debug.log filen. Den "hur man rapporterar Issues": http: //chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/How_to_report_issues sida visar hur du hittar debug.log filen.

Här kommer den senaste debug.log filen.
Hoppas att det går att lösa mina problem. Det är bara en av 5 radioapparater som det inte fungerar att läsa från.

The problem is that this radio does not report a valid firmware version CHIRP.

Problemet är att denna radio inte rapporterar en giltig firmware version Chirp.

[2017-03-19 17:54:50,351] chirp.drivers.uv5r - INFO: Radio Version is '\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff\xff'

Något förslag på hur det går att lösa så att det går att programmera radion med CHIRP?
