Won't transmit I have a pair of motorola fv200 walkie talkies. Suddenly one of them won't transmit. It will receive, go through the menu, even send a call to the other, but it won't transmit via the ppt button. Suggestions?

Odd that you can send a call alert, so it is transmitting. I suspect the battery. As usual it seems on these radios, the battery even after a full charge will not generate enough power for a voice transmission. Voice takes more time than a "call tone" and I suspect the battery fails in voltage too quickly. No easy way to test a lithium battery either. Put up at least 1 spare and try again. Post if it worked, please.

I had the same issue with one, then both, of my Motorola Talkabout MH230R units. When I push the PTT button, the radio will seemingly recycle, as if I turned it on. It won't stay in transmit mode. The display shows all screen icons and double eights and then goes back into receive mode. Can't figure it out. Could be a switch issue.

First I would check the interference code on both radios to see if it is set the same. It is possible you have one set to zero and the other set to another number. This would cause the problem you describe. The interference eliminator is designed to block out transmissions from radios whose settings do not match it.

If all your settings are identical, and you have only 2 radios, it is not possible to tell which one has the problem. You either have one with no transmit or one with no receive. The only way to tell which you have is to get a 3rd radio involved, set to the same settings.

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

Don't know your capabilities but if it were me I would open the phone and check the contacts for transmit button. Sometimes contacts get corroded and need cleaning or it just may be no connection at all and a adjustment of the contacts will resolve the issue.

Moisture and oxidation on the circuit board will create noise during transmission. You may remove the cover and wipe around microphone and the circuit.Ensure its dry. Cover it back and test.

One of both Devices doesn't receive


Hola
Lo que le llamas prueba de recepcion me parece que es abrir el squelch, me da la impresion que si funciona el radio con el SQ abierto, si recibe en este estado aparentemente tendra problemas con este circuito, este radio si no estoy mal, no tiene codigos de eliminacion de ruido, revisa ese dato ya que para que el radio reciba si posee esta funcion debera de coincidir tanto en canal como en ese codigo.(Mismo canal, mismo codigo en ambos radios).
Revisa si el radio tiene codigos de eliminacion, si no, este radio tendra problemas de SQ, me parece que no podras hacer mucho por el.
Suerte!!
