Hi,

Beg to differ with your friend. Those small numbers are not sub-channels but rather are Interference Eliminator Codes. The represent what code is being used by the radio to eliminate other incoming transmission not with the same code (number). There could be similar radios working on the same channel/frequency, but if they do not have the same code then neither one would hear each other. This does not make a channel "private", rather it limits what one can hear on that channel to another radio with an identical setting of the code. In some Motorola models, pressing the Menu button until the small numbers/code flashes would enable them to be changed. To change, press the+ or - keys. Pressing the MON key or setting the code to Zero would enable the radio to receive and sound off all incoming signals with or without the code.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My 54cm RC-A07 Logik Tv is not tuning and displays a red asterisk next to channel number in top right hand corner of screen


Hi. This might indicate that your TV is eiter in "channel " mode or in "number" mode. Channel is rhe real channel from the transmitter, (being 2-62, S channel) while the number is the one you change by your remote. There must be a way in the menu/tuning where you choose between both.

I have two T5510 Motorola. Walkie talkies and when


Good job describing. The channel is the channel number, the upper right is the "tone". If everything matches, they should talk to each other. Try pressing the squelch button on each to make certain the speakers work. It is also possible the mic openings are clogged with debris or the audio jacks have something in them. If the audio jack has a broken pin or even debris in it, it is possible the speaker will remain muted. If you are using audio accessories, unplug them and turn the radio off/on. Do you have a tone on power up? Other than that, how old are they? Do you know the history? If they got wet, corrosion likely set in and you need new radios. Yes, I know some say waterproof, they mean resistant.

I can't get them to connect to each other


If the unit you are using is an FRS/GMRS radio then this might fix your issue.
  1. Make sure both radios are on the same channel, ie Channel 2.
  2. Now look at the screen on both radios...below the "2" is a smaller digit... this is a sub-channel.
  3. Are the sub-channels for both radios the same? If not they need to be matching. The easiest way is to set them to "0". (You can read more about the sub-channels in your Motoral owners manual if you have one.).
Here is how to change the sub-channel.
  1. Press the MENU button once and release it. You will notice that the main channel is now blinking.
  2. Now press the MENU button a 2nd time within 4 seconds to make the smaller sub-channel number begin blinking.
  3. Now use the "+" sign on he right (or up arrow), OR the "-" sign on the left (or down arrow) to adjust the sub-channel to the number of your choosing.
  4. Let's say you wan to set the sub-channel to "0". Using the above instruction in #3, do this and then immediately press the PTT (Push To Talk) button once to lock in your selection.
Both radios are now programmed to speak with each other on the same frequencies.
Your question did not have much detail, so I am assuming this is the issue. I hope this helps!

Number won't erase


Press the "DISPLAY" button. This may cycle through a couple of other displays but will finally clear the channel number. (That's how it gets turned on, too, by pressing that button.)

If this solution is what you needed, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!
