Check your parrity settings in whatever terminal program you are using.  Try different settings.
 
If you managed to get a true "Hard" reset to the TNC, then just set your software to the default settings of the PK-12 (whatever they may be, look in the book) and you should get communication again.

Did you try RESETTING via a SHORT on the battery
contacts?
(on the side of my MFJ, there is a pair of parallel
contacts, that you short with a screw driver, to do a
RESET. I belive the PK-12 has this)
That always seems to straighten my MFJ 1270C out right
away.
If that doesn't work, maybe someone can suggest
something ELSE.
Don't give up on it, what about the internal battery?;

Is it DEAD ?  There is a disc type internal battery in
it I bet.
Make sure it isn't leaking ACID all over the inside of
the cabinet!
(you'll feel so CONTENT with yourself if you correctly
trouble shoot it and get it WORKING..........I always
DO, heh, heh)
