Question about Motorola TalkAbout T5000 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Low Voice When I talk using my T5000 my voice comes through extremely quite on other radios that my friends have. I have tried the obvious such as volume controls and changing to my other radio. We all use Motorola radios so I don't think it is a compatibilty issue. I have tried different settings but it is possible I am missing something. Any ideas? Thanks Scott

Re: Low Voice

Mostly of this radios works in 12.5Khz channel spacing so the modulation will be 2.5khz, if the other radios are not for the same application, they could be a 5.0 Khz modulation,this could be the reason that you are heared quite. Other reason is that you Microfone is clogged, or dirty, chech this. Neto

Compilot will not transmit my voice.

Interesting device. The first thing to check is your Bluetooth connection. Reinstall it on whatever device you are using, called "pairing". This really is NOT a two way radio, there is no push to talk switch and everything depends completely on your Bluetooth device working with the Compilot. So, if paired, check the volume of the device you are talking to, Bluetooth often is quite a bit quieter than you would expect. Post if you need more help!

Hi Howard,

Is there any noise or voice coming from the speaker before you try to transmit?

If so, you are trying to talk at the same time the channel is already in use, be it voice or someone holding down their PTT button without talking just to be a nuisance.

If this is correct, then nothing wrong with your radio, and nothing can be done about the button pusher blocking the channel.

Sorry if I have been of no help here, some things are beyond my scope.

I have binatone 100 walkie talkies. they have power to them but we cannot talk into them, they just keep bleeping when we try and talk. any suggestions?

  • Have you checked your batteries? This radio will not transmit with to low of batteries but it will beep every 15 seconds or so. This radio utilizes AAA batteries.

  • The other thing this could be is your pressing "Call" rather than "Talk." That's called "call paging tone." So make sure you press the "Talk" button when you want to transmit your voice because if you press "Call" you will only send a 2 second beep.

Regards, Tony

I have 2 Motorola T5000s and 1 T4500 that came together in a set years ago. The two T5000s seem to connect to each other fine, and the T4500 receives messages and signals from the T5000, but does not seem...

Here's a link to the user guides:

Check your interference eliminator code (aka PL, private line, or code). It is likely set to zero (off) on the T5000s and set to a different number on the T4500s. They must match to work together. Otherwise the one with code turned on will not recognize the other one.

Best regards.

Voice recognition on motorola t5500

That means that it will Transmit, like pressing the "Talk" button, BUT ONLY when it hears the "Voice" it was "Trained" on. So this is so No-one else could use this unit. With this method. You "Identify" yourself, and after that every-time you speak, the Transmitter is keyed, and the channel is opened and the voice sent, when you stop talking,it goes back to receive, again. Some are less sophisticated, in that they are really a "Sound Switch" and when the unit "Hears" a "Voice" it, switches OFF receive, and ON the transmitter, and Transmits the audio out.

Rx not working

You need to check the programming of your Frequency, interference Code eliminator and Qt filter, if any. All must match one another for the radios to communicate. You have posted under the T5000 heading, here is a link to the nearest numbered user guide.

Best regards.

T5000 have a lot of static!

I think if you can´t undestand what the other person is sayin, and you think is working fine, the problem could be at the speaker, check if the speaker is clear of dirty or sand or any thing that has not to be there. If you find any dirty or sand on you speaker, try to clean with a brush and giving some little knocks with a piece of steel Good luck
