The battery is flashing red when charging


You do not mention which model of Motorola radio you are charging, so this will be basic information: Typically if a charger blinks red when the battery is initially put on the charger, you either have:
1) Dirt contacts. Solution: Clean with pencil eraser, both radio and charger contacts.
2) Shorted or bad battery. Solution: Replace the battery.
3) A bad charger. Replace charger.

Some simple troubleshooting might determine your problem. Try the battery on a different charger and see if you get the same blinking light. If so, you have a battery issue. If the problem disappears when you place it on the known good charger, then you know you have a charger issue.

Best regards.

Where can I buy a new charger for a Motorola T7100 2 way radio?


There are two pieces, don't know if you need both:
Wall adapter
Drop-In Tray

This is the same charger as the Motorola XTN and CP100 radios. Your local Motorola dealer may be able to assist you, if you were to mention these models.

And seeing you are needing a charger, you might also check your rechargeable batteries age. The life expectancy of this style battery is 18-24 months. On the battery label you will find a 4 digit date code. The first two numbers are the year, the next two are the week of the year. Ex: 1107 would be 2011 the 7th week.

And as you are likely aware, this radio will also accommodate 4 AA batteries. (The AA batteries cannot be charged using the charger, only the Motorola rechargeable NiMH batteries are compatible with the charger.)

My Motorola CLS1110 Two way radio has issues charging. I have a 6 station charging station and when I put the walkie on the dock to charge the light just contiues to blink red. I have to continually...


You may have a bad battery, or even dirty battery contacts. A few troubleshooting ideas include:
1) Swap the battery to another known good CLS1110 radio and see if the other radio has the same problem when placed on the charger. If so, you have a bad battery. This type of battery typically lasts approx. 18-24 months before needing replaced.
2) If swapping the battery proves to be successful, check the battery contacts on the affected radio for debris, scum or dirt. Clean the contacts on the charger and the radio with a pencil eraser if needed. (The fact you have to readjust the walkie in the charger indicates you might have problems with the contacts.)
3) Try the battery from the known good radio in the affected radio, if the battery charges correctly, you know the radio is fine. If the charger blinks with the known good battery, then you know you have a radio problem.

Best regards.

I work for a hotel and we have about 6 2 way


Here are some things to check:
1) Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser. (Both on the radio and charger)
2) Check the date code of the "new" batteries and see if they are less than 2 years old. (3-digit number usually with the first number being the year, the next two the week of the year. ex: 927 would be 2009 the 27th week)
3) The radios must be turned off when on the charger.
4) If using drop-in chargers try charging the battery alone in the charger.
5) Are all the chargers lights blinking? This can be a sign of a bad charger, shorted battery or wrong battery. You mentioned recently replacing them, are they the same chemistry as the previous batteries?

You did not mention the type of radio, so we cannot be more specific in our troubleshooting, but this should get you started. The beeping you are experiencing is most-likely the low battery beep. Your batteries are not getting charged. The above questions should help you narrow down the problem. If you need more assistance post another question and we'll try to help further.

Does the motorola MT 2000 pickup police stations?


The MT2000 can only be programmed by an authorized dealer. To have the police frequencies you would need permission of the police department, unless you were getting only the receive portion, which would make your radio be like a scanner.

No charge


Here are a few troubleshooting thoughts:
1) Check your charger contacts for film/debris. Use a pencil eraser to clean them. (This can be done on the charger and the battery.) If the charge light comes on and stays on consistently you know you have good contact.
2) Be certain your radio is shut off when on the charger.
3) New batteries sometimes need initialized. It will sometimes take 3 or more chargings to fully charge the battery. Check the date code of the new batteries to be certain what you obtained is truely new/fresh. Contact the vendor where you purchased the batteries and let them know of your difficulties in charging the new batteries.

GP 360 Radio Charger


On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

Radio won't charge!


I don't know that I have your solution, but I do have a few troubleshooting tips.

Flashing typically means: your battery is possibly old, bad or is not making good contact. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to ensure they are making good contact with the charger. Also check your charger contact to see that they are free of debris. They can also be carefully cleaned with an eraser. (Do not use any type of solvents on either contacts.)

Second, check the date code on your battery. It is 3 or 4 digit number on the label. Batteries last approx. 18-24 months before starting to fail. Here is how to read the code: 835 would be 2008 the 35th week. If the battery is more than 2 years old, you should consider replacing it.

It is wise to have your radio turned off while on the charger. You can cause harm to the radio if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is on the charger. Plus, your radio will never fully charge if left on.
