You do not mention what type of radio you are using. However, it is possible
1) you are plugging in the audio device with the radio turned on. If so, the result will be as you describe. Simply turn off the radio and replug the device with the radio turned off. In most cases this will solve the problem. Or a simple press of the PTT while it is locked in transmit, will return the radio to Push-to-Talk mode.
2) You are using an audio device which is not designed for the radio. OR
3) Your radio is stuck in Transmit.

If all else fails, shut off the VOX capability of the radio.

I bought new batteries for a Motorola Radius SP21 walkie talkie but it still does work.


Here are a handful of things which could be the problem:
1. Check to be certain you have the battery installed the correct direction. With this radio, it is a common mistake to put the battery in backwards. The Motorola logo w/name should be facing forward, and with the radio in an upright position, you should be able to read the words on the battery.
2. Check your charger. The red light should come on and stay on during charging.
3. Clean all battery contacts gently with a pencil eraser to remove dirt/dust/hand oils, then try charging again. If you are using a wall plug charger only (not a drop-in) you may have a problem with the jack on the radio.
4. Check your radio to be certain it is set to the correct frequency and PL code. It must be set identical to your other radios in order for them to communicate with one another. If you need help with this you can give us a call at 800-872-2627, and we'd be happy to walk you through SP21 programming over the phone.
Best regards.

Light stays red after being plugged in for 24 hours


I am assuming that you are speaking of the charger. The Red LED shows that the charger is plugged into the wall. It does not show the charge status of the radio. These are very simple units, and it is not a "smart" charger.

We recently purchased the MS350 radios and are trying to use them handfree with the headsets. We plugged in the headsets, turned on the radios, but are unable to communicated back and forth using the VOX...


The three things which come to mind are:
1) Is the headset the VOX headset intended for the radio model? Sometimes the rings on the plug do not match the internal points of contact if it is not the intended headset. Not all headsets are VOX capable.
2) Is the headset plugged in all the way. (You mentioned plugging in and then turning on. This is good. You must always have the radio turned off when plugging or unplugging an audio device.)
3) Try pressing the PTT on the headset cord one time before switching the dip switch to VOX. (Assuming you have a headset with the small box in the line.)

Check your VOX/ iVOX settings. You will need VOX for using an audio device.

Lastly, if you continue to have difficulties, contact Motorola at the 800# provided in the user guide. They should be able to assist you.

Best regards.

Flashing red light on radio where it thinks its recieving. Transmits fine but does not recieve.


Three things come to mind:
1) The radio is receiving, hence the light, but you may have a different PL code than the other radio and it is muting the transmission. Check your programming to be certain both radios are programmed alike. The red light indicates activity on your frequency.
2) Your radio may have a problem with the receive side of the radio or a bad speaker.
3) The transmitting radio may have a problem with transmit. This can be a sign of a bad battery. Swap batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery. (It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so loss of transmit is common with a bad battery.)
Best regards.

UHF Busy and cannot recieve transmissions


It is possibly your PL (private line, interference eliminator code, tone code) has been changed or turned on. Check your programming to see that your radios are identical. If you have further questions please let us know the name/model of the radio, so we can be of more help.

How do I set my sx700 radio to work with hands-free headsets? Any assistance would be appreciated.


Hands-Free Use With Accessories (VOX)
You can transmit hands-free with the use of optional accessories. Once
VOX is turned on, the radio detects your voice and transmits when you
speak.
1. Turn the radio off and plug the VOX accessory into the accessory
port.
2. Turn the radio on. VOX shows on the display.
3. Adjust the volume appropriately by rotating the volume knob . Lower the volume
before placing the accessory on your head or in your ear.
4. To turn off, simply remove accessory.
Note: There is a short delay between the time you start talking and
when the radio transmits. There is a short delay before the
transmission is completed.

Owners Manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf

You must be using a VOX capable accessory. Generally this is an accessory without an in-line PTT.

Motorola T5622 VOX Not Activating with Autocom Sys I have an Autocom (Kit 300) motorbike coms system. I bought the accessory cord that interfaces to the Motorola T5622, for VOX I have followed the Motorola...


Hi Folks, two seperate checks to do - to check vox on autocom and transmit on motorola. With the T5622 unconnected to anything, does the push transmit button work - e.g. does it make the beep noise at the end of transmission?

Does your autocom work with any other sound sources - i.e. mp3 player so you can hear music. Does this mute when you speak ? (it should if vox is working). Note that in this setup vox is provided by autocom - NOT BY THE T5622. The instructions you mention are for the motorola vox kit.

Wire the two together and you should get the motorola beeping through your autocom at the end of transmit - that's what my kit 200 does with my T5622.

Motorola T5700 Talkabout Series


Hi,

It would seem that this is a problem with the contact/switch of your Motorola T5700. When a headset, ear piece or external speaker is plugged in, an internal switch transfers the connection from the speaker to the external. This is better illustrated in the image below.

525cab1.jpg

Initially, you can try an electronic contact cleaner. If that doesn't work, you may have to open the unit and manually scrape off any corrosion from the contacts/terminals or slightly bent it to improve contact.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need addition al information.

Good luck and kind regards.
