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.

Have xtl 5000 says key failed but do not have key loaded

Mine says key failed, too, because it's expecting to find an encryption key, but there isn't one. I ignore it. I could make it go away either by flashing a key into it or else by unchecking the Secure Hardware Equipped check-box using the computer software for programming the radio.

05/94 error on 05 control head


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.

There is a sequence and it is 2,8,18,32,50,72 what is the fiftyiest number

The pattern for this sequence is that the difference between one number and the next is four more than the difference between that number and the previous one.
For example:
8 - 2 = 6
18 - 8 = 10
32 - 18 = 14
50 - 32 = 18

So the sequence is:
2, 8, 18, 32, 50, 72, 98, 128, 162, 200, 242, 288, 338, 392, 450, 512, 578, 648, 722, 800, 882, 968, 1058, 1152, 1250, 1352, 1458, 1568, 1682, 1800, 1922, 2048, 2178, 2312, 2450, 2592, 2738, 2888, 3042, 3200, 3362, 3528, 3698, 3872, 4050, 4232, 4418, 4608, 4802, 5000, ...

So the 50th number in the sequence is 5000

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


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

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

My camera doesn't record!!!

it may be a corrupt driver or a software glitch, remove the camera from usb port,uninstall driver and software and reinstall. Try camera in a different usb port and record again to see if the same thing applies. You can also try recording in windows movie maker 2 to see if the same problem occurs, atleast then you will know if its a camera hardware fault or not after trying 2 different recording programmes.
