Question about Midland G-227C2VPC (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Battery replacement? I have the Midland G-227 walkie talkie set. We have had them off for the past 3 or 4 months. We had just purchased new batteries and a new charger for them as the same problem had occured previously. The problem being, we charged the batteries as directed in the owners manual. After being stored for a while we put them on the charger for about 24 hours and we are unable to turn them on. Both lights come on on the charger but niether one of them will turn on. What are we doing wrong?????? Please let me know as this has been quite an investment for us to use only a few times. When they worked they worked very well. I would love to beable to have them work again. Thanks so much for your time and hope to have a solution soon. Respectfuly, Kris

Re: Battery replacement?

Kris, are you sure that the radio es working properly with other batteries, I mean if you use with 4 AAA batteries does the radio turn on? If the radio turn on, is your battery lasting as ussual? check if the battery contacts are ok, may be one of them could be damaged or rusted. I hope this can help Neto

You might try, we have found them to carry most TalkAbout accessories and batteries. Before ordering battery packs, you might try switching your existing good battery to the other radio and see if it solves the problem. This would assure you that it is indeed a battery problem.

One walkie talkie will send but not receive

Check your programming, specifically the private line (PL code) settings. This is one problem which can cause the problem you are describing.

Two sets of Motorola Walki Talki radios will not communicate.

In addition to the channel and privacy codes, some Motorola two-way radios have a feature called Eavesdrop Reducer where you have 3 scramble settings available; perhaps you have this set on one of sets of radios but not the other. It should be something like that because otherwise there is no reason that by setting the radios to the same channel and privacy code they wouldn't be able to send/receive to each other.

My Midland walkie talkie quits transmitting about 3 seconds after I start transmitting

It is more likely a power issue. PTT switches do not normally cause a short circuit. Check the batteries, swap the batteries and see if that helps. Radios take a great deal more power to transmit than turn on or receive. If not the battery, try a low voltage battery, such as a cordless phone battery. If it still occurs, check your warrany and send it back to the factory.

I bought 6 sets of Midland LXT 345 walkie-talkies for the teachers to use when they go out on the playground. Less than 1 year later several of them don't work. They keep them in their charges when...

The batteries have likely been damaged from being on the chargers too long. Try trading a known good battery into the non-working radios and see if it/they will work with a good battery. If so, replace your batteries, and then only put the radios on the charge when they need a charge, such as after the radios have been used 8-10 hours. Longterm charging can quickly age batteries. Life expectancy of a battery is 18-24 months with good care.

Best regards.

The battery is fully charged on the walkie talkies and all are on the same channel, however out of 12 walkie talkies only 2 will work. When ever you push the push to talk button the walkie talkie shuts...

Your batteries are either no good, or not charged. When you press the PTT button it takes more energy than being in standby mode. If you have a battery problem it will fail quickly when the PTT is pressed.

Rechargeable batteries last approx. 18-24 months. Check your battery for a 3-digit date code. It is usually a 3 digit number followed by a couple of letters. The numbers tell the date of manufacture. The first number is the year, followed by the week of the year. 025 would be 2010 the 25th week. (or if very old it could be 2000 the 25th week.)

If you feel age is not a problem, you might check your charger(s) to see they are fully powered, and clear of debris on the contacts (and the radio contacts as well). Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.

A few tips: Be certain when placing your radios on the charge they are turned off. Check your wall outlet to be certain it doesn't get shut off with a light switch. Expect to replace your batteries every 2-3 years.

Best regards.

Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies

Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.
