Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of the issue you are having with this unit.
I am unable to make a phone call to you to yet, so let me ask a few questions to see if I can help.
May I ask:
1) Is this a NEW unit, or perhaps a "used" or "refurbished" device?
2) How long have you had this unit?
3) Do you have any "paperwork" that came with the unit?
That should get us started. Please let me know and we will get right on this.
Thanks

Hi again,
I didn't see a response from my first note, but I wanted to send the following information before I take an afternoon break.
First, I have a link to the electronic (PDF) version of the manual for you - just in case you didn't get one with your unit. The manual should appear on your screen when you use the link below, but let me know if that does not happen.

Next, I have a couple of links to videos, that show the setup and programming of these units. The first is from a TV station's "weather guy", and it goes step-by-step through the entire unit programming.

Note: When he covers the SAME codes for setting the county, you may want to just set the "ANY" mode, so you don't have to worry about those codes - at least for now.
This NEXT link is a video from different person, and it must more RAPID when programming, and not a complete at the first video, when it comes to step-by-step procedures. But I just wanted you to see it so you would have a good idea of how these systems work during setup.

I hope this helps. Please let me know your results and if you have any more questions.
Thanks, ***** *****
