Joe is right. I've also had a system and a group locked out by accident
and didn't know it until I had downloaded the systems from the scanner
into ARC-XT and noticed the lockout checked on a system. I've also had
a case where the group for a system didn't have the check-mark in ARC-XT
which basically locked out that group.
Are you using Freescan or ARC-XT for programming? If so, dump your
systems into the program from the scanner and check for systems/groups
on hold or locked out. that's sometimes quicker than using the scanner
to check if you aren't totally familiar with the menus in the scanner.
