Had the same problem, tried to factory reset was just freezing. This was when I was on the DAB band, so I changed it to the Fm band and it reset within seconds.

My makita dab radio basically froze up, wouldn't let you use any buttons other then power on n off. I started when I gave the aerial a little twist to make sure it was in fully while it was on. Long story short, I opened up the radio, cut the aerial wire. That made everything work (although won't tune) but at least I can set it to aux.

January 2015

It does not start up

October 2014

Press band and advanced for about 5 seconds
Then scroll though until you reach factory reset and select yes

The very first time you switch on the radio it does a default automatic scan of DAB stations to set it up, and all the stations are then stored to memory. Therefore it doesn't need to scan each time you switch on, as it already has the information it needs.

If you feel that you actually require a new scan because you've lost access to some stations (maybe because you're operating the radio in a different area to where you were when it carried out the initial default scan), or you're not able to pick up a new station that you've heard about for instance, then you have to start the Autoscan yourself by simply pressing the Auto Tune button while the radio is on the DAB Band.
