H1517A is listed as a ASTRO SPARE CTRL UNIT W7 FAS. H1764 is listed as a W7 DUAL CONTROL HEAD RETROFIT KIT. You would need to call Motorola to confirm, but it appears one is the number used when you order it with a new radio. The other is the number you use when ordering for a radio you already own. It is unclear what the difference is. The H1764 is significantly higher in price.

Also, the dealers quoting you the W7 may be able to clear this up for you. The XTL5000 is an APB item and not in the standard dealer book.

05/94 error on 05 control head


Hi,

This error message indicates an incorrect connection from main radio and your remote head, Check that you have installed correctly and that all plugs and fittings are snug and not loose.

Otherwise, the remote is cactus, that could be another issue, try without the remote and see if the radio works, the answer lies in either of those.

Hope this helps you.

Cheers,
Peter

Cannot set interference eliminator code on my second t5710


First check to see that your keypad is unlocked. You can lock/unlock the keypad by holding in the PTT button for three seconds. You will see a little lock icon when it is locked.

To set the code for a channel:

1. Press Menu until the CODE number begins to flash.

2. Press the + or - to select the desired code.

3. Press the PTT to save the code.

Note: You can set a different code ofr each channel using this procedure.

Zero (0) equals OFF.

If you continue to have problems, set both radios back to a very basic setting with all special featured turned off and see if you can communicate. Then add the desired features back in one at a time until you have what you'd like on both radios.

Best regards.

I have 2 Motorola T5000s and 1 T4500 that came together in a set years ago. The two T5000s seem to connect to each other fine, and the T4500 receives messages and signals from the T5000, but does not seem...


Here's a link to the user guides:

http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5XXX_User_Manual_E.pdf

http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T4500_User_Manual_E.pdf

Check your interference eliminator code (aka PL, private line, or code). It is likely set to zero (off) on the T5000s and set to a different number on the T4500s. They must match to work together. Otherwise the one with code turned on will not recognize the other one.

Best regards.

Xtl head shows "maintenance mode" "remote device" is it not programmed? Also is control head wiring red 12 volt and yellow ign.?


Hello,

The red wire on the remote head should go to the battery (with a fuse inline) the yellow wire should go to a switched 12 volt source (with a fuse).
The XTL radio is in need of correct programing, With out looking at the codeplug I would say that the option for remote head was not checked.

Hope this helps, Bill

XU2100 takes full charge, but will not transmit or receive


It is possible the radio has been changed to another frequency or PL code. Check the numbers in the upper right corner as you turn the radio on. The first number will be the frequency, the second number the PL code. (If both numbers are the same you will not notice them changing other than the word freq disappears.) If these numbers differ from your working radios, then your radio simply needs programming. If you need help walking through programming, simply call our office at 800-872-2627, one of the ladies will be happy to walk you through programming the radio over the phone. (This saves a lengthy explanation here on FixYa.) The second thing to check would be to try another battery in the radio. Just take one from one of your known good radios and try it in this one. Anything past these two potential problems would need to be looked at by a technician. This style radio is typically repairable. You can expect to find a flat-rate of approx. $69.

Having trouble getting sound on my motorola mcs 2000 uhf radio


What kind Motorola radio is it? and I assumed that you mean main unit and control head. If you don't see an internal speaker in the control head then you need a external speaker hooks up to the back of it.

MOTOROLA XTL 5000


Hello BSEESTADT, The info displayed is telling you to "carry me to the radio shop". When did you buy the unit? Did you purchase a service warrenty? Call your local Motorola shop and ask for a technican not a manger or sales. He may do it for free or maybe a discounted service charge. If a charge is out of budget call some other radio service shops for cost. Good Luck

You may have one of them set to the wrong DPL code. Most FRS radios have a channel number and another number that corresponds to a DPL code. Try looking in your owners manual for this feature it may be known under a different description as each company calls it different things. DPL, PL, private code, user code etc.
