My Baofeng's had a weird problem for a few months now. The buttons on the side (ptt button, flashlight button, etc.) work fine, but none of the buttons on the front face of the radio seem to function as intended. I would just assume the buttons were broken or there was some sort of wiring error, but the funny thing is that I still get a beep anytime I press any of these buttons, IE it acknowledges the buttons were pressed, they just don't actually do anything. This, of course, is problematic seeing as I cannot change frequency or access the settings menu. Anyone able to help me out? Is there a fix? Or should I invest in a new Baofeng?

Did you lock the keypad by accident?

Sounds about right. I'm super non-fluent in radios. How do I undo that?

Hold down the unlock button.
Should be the bottom right.
