Hello BSEESTADT, The info displayed is telling you to "carry me to the radio shop". When did you buy the unit? Did you purchase a service warrenty? Call your local Motorola shop and ask for a technican not a manger or sales. He may do it for free or maybe a discounted service charge. If a charge is out of budget call some other radio service shops for cost. Good Luck

05/94 error on 05 control head


Hi,

This error message indicates an incorrect connection from main radio and your remote head, Check that you have installed correctly and that all plugs and fittings are snug and not loose.

Otherwise, the remote is cactus, that could be another issue, try without the remote and see if the radio works, the answer lies in either of those.

Hope this helps you.

Cheers,
Peter

I use a Motorola XTS 5000 2 way radio at work. It displays a message "Key Failure"' and intermittenly beeps. It will not allow transmissions. Can I program a fix or does it need to be repaired?


It needs to be looked by a programming technician in a radio shop. "Key Failure" means that a secure encryption key has not been loaded into the radio and you have set the switch for using encryption to the "on" position. This switch is located under the channel switch on top of the radio and in your case it should be set to the "O" position and not the "O" with the line through it. The XTS radios can be programmed to retain the encryption key when the battery is removed OR to keep the key even if the battery is removed, so it depends on how your radio was programmed as well.

How to set channels to scan on motorola ht 1000


On the HT1000, there is an A, B, C toggle switch just under the On/OFF/Volume control knob.

When set to A, the radio is IN the scan mode.

When set to B it is NOT in the scan mode.

When switched to C, it is in the scan program mode. There is a green button on the left side above the PTT switch. When you set it to C, you switch the CHANNEL SELECT knob to the desired freq you want to add to the scan list. When there, you push the green button. ONE push gives you a red indicator light on the top of the radio. A 2nd push gives you a GREEN light displayed. A 3rd push gives you NOTHING lit up.

The 1st push (RED light) means you have selected THIS freq as your PRIORITY channel of your scan list when scanning.

The 2nd push (GREEN light) means it is just IN the list, not as a priority channel.

NO light means it is NOT entered into the scan list.

Once you have your list set up, simply flip the A,B,C switch back up to A and you're scanning what you selected.

HOWEVER All of the above is dependent on whether or not the ORIGINAL setup programming from the factory set the radio up for these features to work. If it WASN'T set up that way, you'll have to have it reprogrammed to activate the buttons and the toggle switch for those features to work.

Xtl head shows "maintenance mode" "remote device" is it not programmed? Also is control head wiring red 12 volt and yellow ign.?


Hello,

The red wire on the remote head should go to the battery (with a fuse inline) the yellow wire should go to a switched 12 volt source (with a fuse).
The XTL radio is in need of correct programing, With out looking at the codeplug I would say that the option for remote head was not checked.

Hope this helps, Bill

How can I know that the Battery Maintenance System is charging.Does the battery voltage displays on the screen??


Hai dud,
A battery maintenance system for charging, analyzing, discharging and conditioning of a NiCad battery. The system displays voltage and capacity to determine whether or not a NiCad battery has enough capacity to power equipment for an optimal time period. The system charges the battery using a negative delta voltage method of detecting full charge, while also displaying instantaneous battery voltage. The system also analyzes the battery in a charge, discharge and recharge mode of operation, and during the charge mode the instantaneous voltage is displayed. The discharge mode discharges the battery to one volt per cell while displaying voltage and accumulative capacity alternately. The system also conditions batteries by cycling a battery through three cycles of charging, discharging and a subsequent recharge cycle.

Hope it Helped You!

Part # for an XTL 5000 w-7 control head. H1517A or H1764?


H1517A is listed as a ASTRO SPARE CTRL UNIT W7 FAS. H1764 is listed as a W7 DUAL CONTROL HEAD RETROFIT KIT. You would need to call Motorola to confirm, but it appears one is the number used when you order it with a new radio. The other is the number you use when ordering for a radio you already own. It is unclear what the difference is. The H1764 is significantly higher in price.

Also, the dealers quoting you the W7 may be able to clear this up for you. The XTL5000 is an APB item and not in the standard dealer book.

MOTOROLA MODEL T8530


It sounds like the radio may be in service or programming mode. Try turning it off, remove the battery, and reconnect the battery. Let me know if that solves the problem or not.
