VOX Transmit is "pulsing". Also, no wx channel reception
I bouhgt a pair of these a few years back. I'm only now trying to use the VOX feature. One of the units seems to be mis-behaving. The first thing I noticed was that when in VOX mode, the transmit won't stay on even though I'm speaking in a long continuous sentences and I've tried all three sensitivity levels. The "tx pulsing rate" is very regular and seems in no way related to my speach. Also the wx channel reception is zero even though the other radio works well in both regards. Can these things be repaired?

From reading through your settings, they appear to be identical. Except, I am not certain what Vox 2 is, or B5 0. If the number 2 beside VOX is a setting, you should set it to off or zero. Otherwise, they appear like they should work. (VOX = voice activation, and when enabled will cause a radio to transmit when it hears a sound, voice, etc.)
If you are using an audio device such as an earpiece or headset, be certain you are plugging it in with the radio turned OFF.
Lack of transmit can also be a sign of a bad battery or bad battery connection. You might try swapping the batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio.
If these are less than one year old, use the number in your user guide to contact Motorola for a possible warranty replacement.
you'll need a schematic and some knowledge. there a two diodes that control the rx and two that control the dx.Check them to make sure they are producing the correct power out put if they are not you should replace all 4
Sounds like you have check the settings. Which would be the first item to check: frequency, code and Qt filter (if any). You might try setting all of these back to a basic setting with only your frequency programmed. Turn all the others to off (or zero), including any other special features such as VOX or call tones. If your radios do not work in this basic simple mode, you may have a deeper problem.
Also, check your batteries. If you are using rechargeable batteries, they may need replaced. They have an 18 month life expectancy. It takes more energy to Transmit than to Receive, so when a battery is going bad, the first thing to leave is Transmit. You can try swapping the batteries to see if the problem changes. But if both are the same age, they both could need replaced.
The T6310 is a disposable radio. Assuming the programming is correct, and matching on each of your radios, and you are using good batteries, there is nothing which can be done to correct the problem. We would however, suggest you double check your programming, and also the age of your batteries.
Sidenote: Rechargeable batteries only last 18-24 months before they begin to fail. Signs of failure can include, but are not limited to, poor transmit, intermittent transmit, white noise, squelching sounds. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so your transmit would be the first to go.
Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'
From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.
You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.
You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.
It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.
Hi Folks, two seperate checks to do - to check vox on autocom and transmit on motorola. With the T5622 unconnected to anything, does the push transmit button work - e.g. does it make the beep noise at the end of transmission?
Does your autocom work with any other sound sources - i.e. mp3 player so you can hear music. Does this mute when you speak ? (it should if vox is working). Note that in this setup vox is provided by autocom - NOT BY THE T5622. The instructions you mention are for the motorola vox kit.
Wire the two together and you should get the motorola beeping through your autocom at the end of transmit - that's what my kit 200 does with my T5622.
