Since you cannot program your radio with CHIRP or the OEM software the
problem is most likely the connection between the radio and your
computer. If the programming cable has a Prolific type chip it is most
likely caused by an incompatible driver. An improper connection
between the 2-pin plug and socket of the radio is a possibility. The
miklor.com website has compatible Windows drivers and instructions for
installing/choosing the compatible driver.

There are only two ways that I know of that could cause TX to be
inhibited when programming from the keypad.

1 trying to transmit on a busy channel when Busy Channel Lockout is programmed
2 programming a frequency that is within 70 MHz from one of the band
edges and then programming a shift direction (SFTD) and offset
(OFFSET) which put the TX frequency outside of the band limits.
