Two things to check for:

1) The radio is shut off when you plug the earpiece into the radio.
2) Your VOX feature is shut off, or set to zero. (The XTN radio will sense an audio device is plugged into the jack and sometimes cause problems such as you are having.)

Lastly, be certain the accessory is designed to be used with the XTN style radio.

Is it possible to fix a non working PTT button on a RDV2020


The PTT button is one of the common failure parts. It is replaceable, but best done by an experienced repair center.

The following things can happen over time:
1) The internal PTT switch can wear out from frequent usage.
2) The user begins to press harder to get the PTT to work, bending the PTT switch further away from the external button the user is pressing.
3) Plastic diaphram, if any present, gets broken in half, and the external PTT switch doesn't work anymore.

Several companies offer flat rate repair on this style unit for around $85.

Best regards.

I have a HT1000 with a remote shoulder mic and a attached 3.5 listen only ear piece. How do I adjust down the volume of the identifier alert tone when I key up the mic. The volume control works for general...


In the programming software their is a field that allows you to either turn off the alert tones or make them lower then your volume level. Most of the time if any of my customers are using a ear bud or headset I turn off all of of the "beeps". Michael

Cant hear talking with ear peice but I can hear the beep from the radio and the PTT works on the earpeice but thats it.


Check to be sure the earpiece is recommended for your type of radio. Be certain to have the radio turned off when plugging in the audio device. Then check you have the device plugged in all the way. You should feel a slight click when it is seated properly. Use the in-line-PTT only, not the PTT on the radio if this is the method you are want to consistently use.

ICOM IC-A6 Feedback type interference


The problem is caused by the microphone preamp in the headset demodulating the AM transmission. Sordin MSA headsets also have the same problem. What you require is a headset with no electronics in it and a dynamic microphone.

Two-Way Radio LI 5650 WXC -> ear bud doesn't work


Did you try plugging in the audio device before turning on the radio? If so, follow this by pressing the PTT on the radio once. It should clear the problem.

Transmission problem


Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. Use electronic contact cleaner (spray type) on the PTT switch;
2. Use an external speaker/microphone and/or handsfree VOX headset
3. Replace the PTT switch. 4 solder points. Might not be easy but doable.

The last would require that you remove the defective PTT switch and use that as per sample when looking for replacement. Some printers uses the same type of switch. Familiarity with electronic components/circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would also be required.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Motorola T5700 Talkabout Series


Hi,

It would seem that this is a problem with the contact/switch of your Motorola T5700. When a headset, ear piece or external speaker is plugged in, an internal switch transfers the connection from the speaker to the external. This is better illustrated in the image below.

Initially, you can try an electronic contact cleaner. If that doesn't work, you may have to open the unit and manually scrape off any corrosion from the contacts/terminals or slightly bent it to improve contact.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need addition al information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Check if you are using the same channel and same squelch code in both radios. I´m not sure if you are talking about the PTT button, if is so, try using a audio accesory with ptt external just to be sure that your internal ptt is working or not.
