Given this is a bit old, still wanted to provide some input that might be useful in case you have not yet solved
the problem. I do in good part work on marine electronics
and radiocom so maybe this might help you or others in the future.
As Mimmo has mentioned what you see when you power on your M802 is the normal display when the MMSI number has not been set yet. You should be able to bypass the MMSI warning screen
by simply pressing any key as per the user manual, and then enter the MMSI for the first time.
If this is not the case I would say that there might be a problem in your RC25 controller unit in that it is not recognizing the keypad input. You mentioned earlier that you found some corrosion
inside the radio, not sure this was actually referring to the main "black box" or inside the RC25 unit. Perhaps you need to check again and make sure you really corrected all the problems. Corrosion
can be a big problem, specially if it is affecting delicate electronics
On the other hand if you are trying to use the CS-M802 software, the best way is with the OPC-478 USB cable that plugs into the headphone jack in front of the RC-25 controller. I have never used the CS-M802 in particular but I have programmed many commercial
radios from different brands, and if there is a communications
problem there will usually be a message stating it to let you know that perhaps you still need to set the proper COM port number, or install a driver for the cable, etc. If you go into Device Manager (assuming you are on a Win machine) check under Ports
and make sure it is showing the connection and it has been assigned a port number. And if you see a yellow exclamation sign in that section when you plug
in the cable you might need to install or update the USB driver for the cloning cable (most USB cables
use a Prolific chipset).
In any case I just downloaded the v11 CS-802 SW thanks to the link you posted earlier, but don't have a radio right now to try it out. Also I understand that there are several different SW versions, so not sure these other versions can also be downloaded somewhere, as it would be good to have them handy.
Hope the information above might be of some use to you. Good luck.
