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


I just bought the two radios -> they work fine. Except I bought them because they had ear-bud (the ear phone with PTT) wich does not work - no audio in the ear piece and transmission of voice.

I plug in the ear-bud and the PTT works but no audio and no transmission of voice. Yes, I tried both radios with same results. Yes, I tried each ear-bud with each radio.

I don't want to return them to Canadian Tire. Just want them to function.

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.

Battery charging

Only the Li-Ion batteries designed to work with the radio can be charged inside the radio. If you have Li-Ion rechargeable batteries such as those you can buy along side the
Alkalines in a store, the answer is no. This type would need to be charged in the style of charger made for recharging this brand/type of battery

I have bellsouth 2231 communicators, the accessory package mentions model A174 ear bud Microphone accessory, is this product specific or would any ear/mic product work?

Most of these type devices use similar accessories. Your local RadioShack, BestBuy, or perhaps even WalMart may have an accessory that will work with the device.

Motorola radius cp200

Not any recalls on this product. However, here are a few tips which may help:
1) There are 4 types of CP200 batteries: Li-Ion, Li-Ion Slim, NiMH, and NiCD. Due to the differing thicknesses Motorola provides an insert which can be turned around to accommodate the battery (or batteries) you have with your radio. When you look at the charger you will see two plastic ears sticking up beyond the charge cup. When you squeeze these ears toward one another you can lift the insert up and out of the charger. Turn the insert around according to which battery thickness you have. Then snap the insert back into the charging base. Your battery should rest and depress the spring loaded charge contacts in the base.
2) The insert has rails which guide the battery into place. You can see on your battery sides there are grooves which match the shape of the rails. In the beginning when all parts are new you must be very purposeful to slide the battery into place, but as the battery and charger begin to have more use you will find it easier to slide.
3) The CP200 charger can accommodate a radio with a battery on it, or a battery alone. (Tip: Always be certain the radio is turned off while on the charger.)
4) The only issue we have every seen customers experience with the CP200 charger is from rough handling. An internal plastic piece which holds the charge contacts in place can be broken if users are very rough when putting the radio in the charger. This is rare, but is known to happen.
Hope this helps.
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

Ear bud/ptt, not working

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.

Using headset jack - unit always transmits

Try plugging in headset BEFORE turning on radio. You should see the word VOX (not iVOX) on your display. At least this is what works for me.
