Question about Motorola T6510 XLR Talkabout Two-Way Radios :

1 Answer

Motorola T6510 Talkabout powers up, but won't send or receive

My two way powers up, and all the menu selections are functioning, but even with the interference eliminator set to zero I still have no reception or transmission. Is there a way to reset all options to factory default, or is my walkie just screwed? -Steve in VT.
P.S. the weather channel activates, but I get no report

On this model there is no shortcut to restore the factory defaults. However, if you walk through all the steps of the programming menu and make the radios identical, pay particular attention to the Qt filter. This is different than the interference code eliminator. Set your Qt filter to zero for the best results.

Is there any replacement for the rubber outer housing on my Motorola T6510 radios?

Replacement parts were never made available for the TalkAbout radios (other than the higher wattage TalkAbout Distance and Distance DPS). Your options are replace the radios, or watch for used radios for parts on ebay and other similar websites.

Best regards.

I need users manual for a Motorola Talkabout T6510

You should be able to purchase the manual, part # KEM-PK11053-01, from Giant International, I checked and this part number is not available to us as a Motorola dealer, so you will need to go directly through Giant International, who manufactures the unit for Motorola.

Here is a PDF copy of the manual. You should be able to print or save only the portion which is in your language, then you would not need to download or print the entire manual.

I don't have the supply power cord for T6510 charger

I do believe it is a 9 volt charger. Look under the battery cover and it will say how many volts. It is probably 9 volts. Just have to find a 9 volt charger with the same plug as you have. Or contact Motorola for new one. Possibly E-bay
