Close Call – How do I turn it OFF? UBCD436PT/UBCD536PT
Sometimes Close Call is turned on by accident and can be
confusing as to how it even happened and how do I turn it off again.
a couple ways it can be turned on and off, but I have found that for most
people that are not familiar with the ‘double function’ of certain keys, this
is the best way to make the adjustments.
Push the Menu Pad.
Scroll down the menu until you highlight Close Call.
Once Close Call has been highlighted - push the E.Yes button
The Close Call menu will now appear.
Scroll down the menu and highlight Set CC Mode.
Once Highlighted - Push E.Yes.
The Set CC Mode menu will now appear.
Scroll through the menu and highlight OFF and push E.Yes
You have now turned the Close Call (CC) option OFF.
Push SYSTEM to resume scanning.
Close Call can be turned on by accident if you push the FUNC
pad and then the AVOID button.
Remember that some buttons have a dual purpose if the FUNC
button is pushed prior.
Sometimes - the FUNC pad is pushed then the AVOID button,
thinking that this is the correct procedure to AVOID a channel, but in fact
your turning a Close Call mode on.
If you look closely at the AVOID button it has the CLOSE
CALL symbol to its lower right, which in itself is confusing as it could relate
to the 1, 4 or replay button.
Turning the close call function OFF via the keypad can also
be done via pushing the FUNC pad and then quickly pushing the AVOID/CC button.
Repeating this process will cycle through the CC settings until OFF is
You would do this three times to return to where you started.
This method takes some practice and is generally the way
things got confused in the first place.
