Hello, There is not compability issue, sounds like you have a mic problem because you hear the Roger Beep and that means that the transmition and Reception cicle is working if you could test an audio accesorie would be great. There is another possibility if one of the radios is out of frequency you could experiment the same symtoms.

If indeed radio #1 has a mic problem, this may be confirmed by trying an external speaker/microphone plugged into the accessory jack. If still a no, then its not the mic but possibly the modulator circuitry. If there is transmit audio with the external mic and hence internal mic is defective, the unit would have to be pried open and the defective component replaced. The internal mic is normally an electrofet 2-3 terminal soldered to a shielded wire and physically attached to the front plate.
Alternately, another possibility is that radio #2 has its Interference Eliminator Code enabled/activated. This is indicated by the presence of small sized digits on the top right of display. If this is the case and no similar digits are displayed in radio #1, then radio #2 will not allow any received transmission to be heard. Along the same line of reasoning, if the code is activated on both radios signified by the presence of the 2 small digits, and radio #1 has a problem with its CTCSS (code) generator, then it would also prevent reception of radio #2. A way to verify this is by deactivating/disabling the Interference Eliminator Codes on both radios.
On certain occasion, it is also possible that radio #2 has a defective speaker. You should be able to verify this by plugging in an external speaker to the accessory jack of radio #2.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Two things which come to mind, one would be if the PTT on the remote mic is bad/defective, second would be you are plugging the audio device in with the radio turned on.
If your remote mic is failing, the PTT is a repairable item, as is the cord on most models.

These are multi-channel FRS / GMRS radios. In order to receive transmitted signals from the other radio, they both must be set to the same Channel and the same Interference Eliminator Code. One without the other will keep audio from being heard on the receiving radio.
I suspect you need to refresh yourself with the radio's controls and settings. If you have lost the manual, you can get a copy free of charge from Motorola You'll need a free program called Adobe Reader to view it.
Once you have everything - look at the right hand side of page 1 for "Talking and Listening" followed by "Menu Options" to set the radios up correctly. Keep in mind that if VOX is selected, and there is sound near both radios, they both will transmit at the same time - since the radios receive OR transmit at any given time, no audio will be heard from either.
Please rate this reply if helpful & good luck!
