Question about Motorola T5710 (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio
Have a pair of these T-5710 HTs and one of them is WAY off
frequency and one is right on. Transmit on the correct channel 2 and
the bad one receives a nice clean/clear transmission on channel 18 !!
The same goes with other channels. I looked up the manual and there is
nothing about doing a reset. Any input would be helpful as they
are such cute little radios.
Thank You, any help is appreciated. I am just wondering if they got
mixed up at the factory, 1 American and 1 Export? We checked the
bad one with a counter and it's in the ball park, some of the
frequencies are actual FRS/GMARS and some are not. Coming from
the hamfest I wonder if someone got in the bad one with the golden
screwdriver? They were only $2 for the pair with charger,
motorola batteries, extra faces and remote mics but I would love to get
them channeled together. I don't dare open them or turn anything
inside until I hear from someone who knows about them as I would hate
to ruin one.

There is not a reset on this model. What you are experiencing comes by one of two ways:
1) The radio has a component going bad which affects the MHz you are transmitting on. (If so, you will need to live with it as long as it continues to work in some combination.)
2) If these radios have never talked to one another correctly, you may have one radio which is a "foreign" model. Some of these same radios are made for other countries with different channel configurations.
Unfortunately, with either cause there is nothing you can do to change the situation. If it works with one on 2 and the other on 18, you'll just have to go with it.
Sorry I could not bring better news.
