2. Press and Hold Down the MONITOR, TRANSMIT, and VFO/MR Buttons.
3. While Holding Down All Three Buttons, Turn the Radio ON.
4. When the Screen Reads FACTORY, Release the Buttons.
5. The Radio Should Now Be Unlocked.
This procedure may work on other Baofeng models. Let us know if this works for you!
