I assume you're talking about a membrane type panel, and some of the switches aren't working?

Likely water ingress, but it would involve taking apart to make sure.

Ok, I don't have a cobra but is DW not only shown on channels other than 16 (as sixteen is automatically the second chanel?). I don't know but scan may be the same (a mandatory choice?). I.e. Change to another channel and do the softkeys come back.

Mature reply would be ditch the Cobra & buy either an Icom or Standard Horizon.
