Default i need a fix for tejon constant beep

I have a tesoro tejon. the last time i used it = no problem. This time = new batteries, cleaned battery holder, etc. I turn it on and get a beep, beep, beep, bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeppppppppppp pppppppppppp
It won't stop. Switched and adjusted all the knobs.........
I checked the voltage inside the unit and it is about 12.8V so it isn't a low battery issue.
Any ideas? = any schematic available? - I have searched for days.

Check your cable to be sure it's seated and snugged into the control box.

Are you testing it in your indoors? Take it outside, away from any possible interference (including cell phone).
