From your model number it appears you have the T200, T250 or T289. Here is a link to a pdf file of the users manual: http://www.usersmanualguide.com/motorola/2-way_radio/t289
Click where it says to download the pdf.

    This is most likely the T200. It was one of the original models. I'll look when I am in the office on Monday for a manual. It is possible you hold in the PTT while turning it on to get into programming mode.

How to use motorola t6250 I was given set of


Here is a link to the user guide. First you should check the programming and be certain the frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) match one another. For simple operation turn off (zero) the code and Qt filter.

One radio not recieving


You need to check your interference eliminator code. It sounds like they are not set to the same code. Also, if your radio has a Qt filter, set it to zero.

Here's a link to the manual http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5300_T5400_User_Manual_E.pdf

Sub-Channels


Here is a link to a list of older TalkAbout user manuals. Use the pulldown menu to look at various models. In general, most of them program similarly by using the menu button to select the feature and the PTT button to lock in the change. http://www.giantintl.com/motorolafrsold.htm

No transmition


You can find the manual here http://www.giantintl.com/motorolafrsold.htm by using the menu to select your radio model.

You most likely will need to program your radios to match one another. Pay special attention to the interference eliminator code and the the Qt filter (if any). Both radios must match perfectly to communicate.

Can't make the T5420 operate without the beeps!


I have not looked up the T5420 user guide, however, on most Motorola TalkAbouts you hold in the minus (-) button while turning the radio on. Post back if this doesn't work, and we'll find the manual for you.

Expandability


Any of the FRS radios on the market should be able to communicate with your TalkAbouts. Most have the typical 14 or so FRS frequencies installed. Your T5410 has an interference eliminator, when set to anything other than zero, it will block out other users on your frequency. If you use this option, you will need to chose radios with this feature. Some of the cheaper off-brands do not offer it.

Talkabouts not communicating


What you have described is typical of the radios not being on the same frequency and/or code. If you know how to put your radios in programming mode, set all the frequencies and codes to the same number, then they will work together. If you still have the owners manual it will describe this process. Usually with a TalkAbout radio it consists of holding in the PTT while turning the radio on.
As you are probably aware, the radio will have approx. 14 frequencies installed. You can usually select these easily from the front panel. The second number you see in the corner of the screen when you turn on the radio is the "code". This is an interference eliminator. All of your radios need to be set to the same code to work correctly together. If you find one or more of your radios does not have "code", simply set those that have "code" to zero.

Neither radio will receive or send


The radio probably needs reprogrammed to match the other units. Check your owners manual for instructions.
