Thread: Powering on UV-5R shuts down PC when connected

    Default Powering on UV-5R shuts down PC when connected

    Hi guys,

    I'm hoping someone here can help. I've been searching google etc, but can't see others with this issue. I wanted to program my radio, so I have downloaded CHIRP. Connected the radio to PC via USB cable, but when I power on the radio, it shuts down my PC and causes it to continualy restart until I shut the radio off again.

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers

    Hi, are you able to try a different PC/ laptop, to see whether the problem persists?

    Has it worked before?
    Is it the correct lead?
    I have seen mention of chipsets in the lead.
