Re: Only one walkie talkie produces sound
Check for Squelch Codes you can see on the display channel number and sub chanel number this is the squelch code
Both displays must show the same icons
If both are the same, try with and audio accesorie, if works may be your speaker is broken.

One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.
If your radios have the feature called private line (aka PL, interference code, or code). It is possible the one radio which appears to receive only may have the code set to off (or zero). Check your user guide and see if you have this feature, then check to see both radios are set to the identical number.
If code is not the issue, you might want to try replacing the microphone from your spare unit,
Try programming the radios without an eliminator code and see if they work together then. If so, there is something wrong with the eliminator code portion of the radio. Also, check your batteries, switch batteries between the units and see if the problem moves to the other unit. It takes more energy to transmit than receive, so a bad or very weak battery could exhibit a similar problem. The radio icon will illuminate whenever a radio is transmitting or receiving. When the radio is in standby mode, the icon should not be shown. Your radio with the icon on all the time may be stuck in transmit. Check your PTT button to see if it is slightly stuck or depressed.

Some number their channels differently, but all FRS/GMRS radios operate in the same mode and will have at least some frequencies in common. Check the channel/frequency lists for both radios and you'll be able to talk to each other.
You are describing an open squelch. If this unit has a squelch control, adjust it until it quietens.
If the battery voltage drops below a certain point, it won't squelch. That could be caused by a battery that needs to be charged or a bad battery that won't charge up correctly.
Hi Zachary I predict that you have trouble with only one unit. Try to find some one with either the same units ( on same Frequency of course) or a receiver that also covers same Frequency and transmit on one GMR then the other to esablish which unit is faulty! The faulty unit should then become apparent, the buzzing could be caused by transmisson of the faulty unit, check all Antenna connections, even change antennas over on testing as prescribed above, good luck John.
I have the same walkie talkies and on mine I can hold down the mode/lock button and it will come off of the Rx mode. Also, you should be able to press the talk button and it will come off of the Rx mode.
Hello Bo Duke, If one radio won't walk to the other my guess if that you have the Privacy Code function set up incorrectly. The privacy code function mutes the radio unless it receives a signal from another radio transmitting the same privacy code. If Privacy Codes are turned on for Radio A but not turned on for Radio B then you will be able to transmit from Radio A to Radio B but not from Radio B to Radio A. If Privacy Codes are turned on for both radios but each unit is set to a different code then neither radio will be able to talk to the other. Make sure that the radios are both set to the same privacy code or that the privacy code function is turned off on both radios. You can find more information on how this function is set in the radio's Owner's Manual. Hope this helps! Ken "Go Ahead. Use Us."
