Question about Motorola Talkabout T5720 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Motorola Speaker One of my motorola talkabout phones works perfectly, but the other one has a speaker that is very quiet and doesnt produce correct sounds. I have the volume all the way up and i can barley hear anything and sounds are distorted and crackled. Does anyone know how to replace the speaker inside it? i tried to open it up but theres something more than the 2 screws holding it together. i cant figure out how to open it without snapping the 2 halves each in half. ugg this is annoying

Re: Motorola Speaker

To dissamble this radio you have to remove the face panel, under this face panel ( the blue one) you will find others screws. first of all try if you have an audio accesorie, with this earbund or head set the audio must be normal or the same quality than the other one, if is not, the radio need quilified service. Good luck Ernesto

My motorola radio has a blown speaker. is it possible to fix it or do i have to purchase a new one? also, if i buy a new one is there anyway to prevent this from happening again

You do not mention the model of Motorola radio that you have, so this answer will be generic. If your radio is a Motorola TalkAbout FRS style radio, parts and schematics are not available, so the unit would not be repairable. (Exception would be TalkAbout Distance or Distance DPS)

As for preventing a blown speaker, the best advice would be: 1) to keep the speaker area clear of dust or debris containing metal fragments, 2) keep the radio dry, and 3) do not run at full volume long periods of time, back it off to 75-80% volume for best results.

If the radio is relatively new, it may be under warranty, contact Motorola at the number in your user guide for possible warranty replacement.

Best regards.

Parts are not available for this model radio. Speakers generally are damaged from debris or moisture getting into the speaker. They are especially susceptible to small metal fragments due to the magnetic properties of the speaker.

I need to wire external speakers to a Motorola XPR 4350

usually when buying a 2way radio they come with a headset (a headphone and a mic) all you need to do is cut the mic and headphone off using the wires for the headphone solder them to a speaker.

(the higher the power of the speaker the more it will drain your battery)

How can I stop a constant frying sound from one of my FV200 Motorola Radio

You could have a bad battery, bad speaker or corrosion damage to the component board. The only one of these which you could correct would be the battery. Try placing a known good battery pack in the radio and see if it corrects the problem. If so, replace the battery pack, if not, retire the radio.

Best regards.

I have a 12 year old Motorola FRS 250 radio that needs a speaker. I would like to find a replacement speaker (internal) but don't know where I can purchase them. I need these radios for a...

You have a few options: check with your local radio dealer or radio shack store for a similar speaker, purchase another used T250 radio via ebay or other source, or simply retire the T250 and purchase another low cost TalkAbout radio. All these radios operate on the same 14 FRS frequencies. Motorola has never supplied parts for this line of consumer radios. They had a replacement warranty, then following the expiration of your warranty they were considered disposable/replaceable. Sorry.

Best regards.

Sends transmission okay but, even with volume set high it receives faintly.

You have one of three problems:

1) You are using the radio with another model of radio which is set to wideband channel spacing. (The TalkAbout is narrowband.)

2) You have a radio with a problem. (bad speaker, or plugged speaker grill possibly, or an internal issue)

3) The transmitting radio has a problem, or has debris or something covering the mic hole.

The only way to narrow down the problem is to have a third known good radio in the mix. This will let you know which radio is problematic. The TalkAbout models are for the most part non-repairable (other than the TalkAbout Distance models and the T7200 and T7400.)
