does anyone have a TYT MD-2017?

If you do I need some assistance.

I just updated firmware to latest non-GPS version which supports 100K contacts. Unfortunately now when I turn on the radio I no longer see English, I'm not sure what I see, however I think it is Chinese characters.

Can someone provide the exact button pushes required to change language. The so called manual only says you can change language by going into Utilities section, but since it isn't displaying English I don't know which is Utilities/Radio settings/language selection button selection.

I don't have one of those radios, but someone told me that they thought they shared the same menu structure as the MD380 and other TYT radios, so possibly someone with one of those other TYT radios could help you.

Unfortunately although I have a Md380 I dissassembled it, and its not currently operational.

Here are some notes for the MD380.

Thanks for the pointer, unfortunately I already tried those suggestions.

The really odd thing is when you use the arrow buttons on the side of the radio, Up goes down in the menu, and Down goes up in in the menu.
