Question about Motorola Talkabout T5720 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Motorola Talkabout 5700, 60 second timeout?

I have a set of Motorola Talkabout 5700. They come with a 60 timeout if the PTT/talk button is held on for 60 seconds. Is there anyway to bypass this or change it so that it could be left transmitting continuously? I was hoping to use it as a baby monitor where one radio always transmits. Thanks

The 60 second timeout is a feature which is necessary to keep from burning up the final amplifier in the unit. It keeps the user from ruining their radio. Most radios, including business radios have this feature. Continually holding down the PTT will also run the battery down very quickly.

It would be best to try getting a regular baby monitor.

Hold the push to talk(PTT) button while turning the unit on, it will talk to you. press PTT to change channel, push monitor to switch to codes, press PTT to change codes. When you have the correct settings press monitor and it will confirm settings.

To turn the tlk confirmation tone off... it does not work holding the - sign and turning it on now what?


Just read your message a second time. Is the sound following the release of the PTT button? If so, it is indeed the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone). If holding in the minus button while turning the radio on does not turn it off, there might be something wrong with the radio, such as a one of the other buttons being slighty stuck. Or you have your keypad locked. To unlock the keypad hold the menu button in for 3 seconds until the lock icon disappears.

Another thing which will make a noise during or after transmitting is the low battery beep. You might check your batteries. Old, bad, poorly charged or defective batteries can cause this.

fyi: Some users might think the Call Tones are the Roger Beep.

Lastly, there is a PTT Timeout beep which will occur if you hold the PTT in for more than 60 sec while talking.

Hope one of these items is of help to you.

DOES IT HAVE A CALL BUTTON?


It has a PTT (push-to-talk) button. But if you are talking about a button to make a call tone (ringing sound) come out the other radios, the answer is no.

Commonly called the TalkAbout Basic. With the radio turned on hold in the monitor button. It should announce the current setting. Use the PTT button to change the setting. Press the monitor button to lock in your selection. When done shut the radio off and then turn it back on.

I recieved a talkabout 250 and i have no clue how to use it please help


You would need two or more radios to be able to communicate with others. Then you simply press the push-to-talk (PTT) button when you want to talk (transmit) and release it so others can reply (receive). The radios must be set to the same settings to be able to communicate.

What will i do to connect Motorola T5720 and T5728


Set both the frequency and the interference eliminator code to match one another. (The big number and the small number) Here is a link to the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T56XX_57XX_User%20_Manual_E.pdf

Basic instructions:
Press the Menu Button
The freq number will flash
Use the + or - button to select the frequency.
Press the PTT button to save the channel setting.

To set the code:
Press the menu button until the code starts to flash (the small number)
Press the + or - to select the code.
Press the PTT to save the code setting.

Once you have both radios matching on frequency and code, they should communicate together.

No activation


Check if you are using the same channel and same squelch code in both radios. I´m not sure if you are talking about the PTT button, if is so, try using a audio accesory with ptt external just to be sure that your internal ptt is working or not.
