From reading through your settings, they appear to be identical. Except, I am not certain what Vox 2 is, or B5 0. If the number 2 beside VOX is a setting, you should set it to off or zero. Otherwise, they appear like they should work. (VOX = voice activation, and when enabled will cause a radio to transmit when it hears a sound, voice, etc.)
If you are using an audio device such as an earpiece or headset, be certain you are plugging it in with the radio turned OFF.
Lack of transmit can also be a sign of a bad battery or bad battery connection. You might try swapping the batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio.
If these are less than one year old, use the number in your user guide to contact Motorola for a possible warranty replacement.
Check the manual to see if you can set the PL tones (CTCSS) and set them to the same as the other radios. If you hold down the monitor button and you can hear the other radios this is most likely to be the fix.
You need to have this on a service monitor to see what if any frequency deviation is occuring when you transmit. You could have a defective mic or you could have a deviation setting set to low, whixh with th emodern radios is something you may or may not have to set within the program. "Back in the day" we set the deviation manually with a tweak of a pot while looking at a deviation meter and injecting 1K audio tone riding the carrier
There first 2 main thing to check..... the off on switch.... and the fuse.
Insie the radio there is a very small fuse.... its a surface mount component fuse... very small. That could be the problem.
Also check the contacts on the radio..... if you have a way of connecting the correct voltage directly to the radios power terminals using jumpers I would definatly do it.
Your most likly going to have to take the raio apart and and connect the battery to trace the power through it.
The small fuse will be one of the first components after the positive power input.
If this seems too much..... bring it to a radio shop... they can do all this quickly
I had the same problem; mine would shut off when bounced around too.
I used a #0 phillips screwdriver (very small) to take out the 6 screws that hold the case together, Carefully separate the face and back because there are wires that can be broken if you pull them apart too fast.
After you get the case apart, lift up the circuit board at the bottom and you will see a small blade pin that sticks out from the side where the batteries are and is supposed to slide up into a contact on the circuit board. I guess over time it starts to wiggle and get loose so I carefully bent the pin (very slightly so it would rub the inside of the contact.
So far I have tested it by dropping and beating it up a little and it seems to have fixed the problem.
Hope this helps.
