The radio has possibly been damp or wet. Take the battery pack out of the radio and allow the radio to dry, or to speed the process try using a blow dryer on a low setting.

Check your programming and be certain your large and small numbers match one another when you get ready to try the radio again.

Here is a manual which most closely matches your radio type: http://www.usersmanualguide.com/motorola/2-way_radio/t280

Can't transmit signal. Only get a 2 second beep when I push the transmit button


You have a poorly charged or bad battery. It takes more power to transmit than to receive. Usually the first thing you lose with a low, bad or poorly charged battery is transmit.

Try a known good battery in the radio. This should solve the problem. If not, check your battery contacts, as you may have one which is bad or not making good contact.

Clean your contacts with a pencil eraser to assure good connection with the charger.

Best regards.

I ptt and it immediatley 'roger beeps'


Beeping when you press the PTT button usually indicates a bad or weak battery. Check your batteries and charger. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser.

If you feel this is not the problem, then you have a radio problem. These radios are non-repairable, as parts and schematics were never released for them.

When I press the push to talk button on my Motorola talkabout 250 there is a constant beeping noise and I cannot transmit


Generally a constant beep is the sign of a low or bad battery. However, it is noted the TalkAbout 250 is operated with AA batteries, and it is likely you have considered this and changed batteries. You might check your battery contacts, and clean them with a pencil eraser to assure they are making good connection. Otherwise, you may have a failing radio.

Best regards.

I recieved a talkabout 250 and i have no clue how to use it please help


You would need two or more radios to be able to communicate with others. Then you simply press the push-to-talk (PTT) button when you want to talk (transmit) and release it so others can reply (receive). The radios must be set to the same settings to be able to communicate.

Fr50 beep


Hello mtnrvr,

The Motorola TalkAbout radios, especially the FR50 and FR60, are notorious for making a variety of beeps when you push buttons and activate various functions of the radio.

The beeps can be helpful when you are trying to operate the radio in low-light situations. But they can also be mildly irritating.

Sadly most models of TalkAbout do not provide any way to disable the beeps. I'd suggest not using this particular radio for covert surveillance missions.

Best Regards,

Muting the sound


Hi,

The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
