Question about Motorola Talkabout T5210 2-Way Radio

2 Way Radios not talking to one another

Help! My kids played with it and brought it back with dead batteries (which I replaced) and now the two do not "receive" one another. What do I do to help them "patch things up?"

Here is a link to the T5200 manual. You will need to reprogram your radios to have the frequency and interference eliminator code match one another. http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/ProductManuals/2101819_PM_EN.pdf

Kids will be kids, and if you also remember back when you were a kid, you probably did the sames things the kids did. (I know I did)
Kids like to play with the knobs, push buttons, turn the dial...Maybe if you checked to see that Both radios are set to the same frequency.
Check the Channel & Interference Eliminator Codes. The dials are located under the battery compartment.
Good Luck, and don't yell at them...........

This is a confusing website. But my problem is with a pair of Uniden FRS 420 two way radios. Have replaced batteries, gone through manual, have every option set properly but still have no reasonable...


Are you stating the volume is not loud enough when someone talks or just idling. If if has a squelch knob turn it til it makes a hissing noise or rushing noise. then back to where the noise just quits. This is the proper setting. Then when someone talks increase volume to listening level you choose. If this does not work take them back and get your money back.

What is the frequency for this radio what ever came with it


These are programmable radios that require Motorola software and programing equipment that is only available through a Motorola dealer. A reputable dealer should be able to help you reprogram the radios with the appropriate frequencies and codes for your use.

Cannot connect between my two t5920 radio sets?


No, the battery will not have an effect on whether the two radios talk to one another, unless the battery is bad or dead.

Check your programming to be certain your Frequency, Interference Eliminator Code, and Qt Filter if any are set the same between the two radios. For basic operation shut off the Code and Filter (set to zero).

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T59xx_User_Manual_E.pdf Programming begins on page 16.

Best regards.

We have set of the T5300 Talkabouts. Been in the drawer for awhile. New batteries. We can talk only one way. That works fine, but can't talk the other way. Leaving on an RV trip and need them...


Check your batteries. A quick test: swap batteries between the two radios and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the batteries.

Other problems might include a programming problem. Check your programming to be certain your frequency # and code # match on both units.

Best regards.

Radio cuts out (screen goes blank) when you press "talk" button


You are correct, the battery is bad. When batteries begin to fail, they may appear to hold a full charge, but when put under a load they fail to maintain the proper power to fully power the radio. Generally you will notice screens going blank, poor or no transmit, etc. Simple solution, replace the battery. New batteries are available for around $30 (US dollars).

hi there

how old are the kids? kids holding screwdrivers is a no no without someone watching over them.

Opening the radio is fine, but avoid Choking hazards like the screws, internal components ...etc.

if the battery is still present, dont give it to the kids to avoid chemical poisoning.

hope this helps.
