Question about Midland GXT850VP4 Two Way Radio

Midland GXT800 radio, opened, reassembled, won't charge now...Help!

Ooops I unscrewed my Midland GXT800 walkie talkie and put it back together, but now the battery won't charge in the cradle. The other one charges, so I thought I'd open the other and see what I missed. Didn't seem like I missed anything, but when I put the 2nd one back together...doh.. it also doesn't charge the battery in the cradle either. Anyone know the trick to putting them back together? obviously something to do with the external charging contacts and the battery box contacts/pc board. the battery powers the unit fine. Just won't charge in the cradle. Most grateful for any tips.

The batteries have likely been damaged from being on the chargers too long. Try trading a known good battery into the non-working radios and see if it/they will work with a good battery. If so, replace your batteries, and then only put the radios on the charge when they need a charge, such as after the radios have been used 8-10 hours. Longterm charging can quickly age batteries. Life expectancy of a battery is 18-24 months with good care.

Best regards.

Generally when a radio shuts off when you press the PTT button it is a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. The fact you have a charge which the light does not come on indicates you have a bad charger or bad connection between the radio and/or battery and the charger. Clean your battery contacts (on both radio and charger) with a pencil eraser and see if it clears up the problem. If not, you have either a battery or charger problem.

Best regards.

Make sure you are using the same channel and privacy code as outlines in the manual for each radio.On the creen the large number is the channel and the smaller number is the privacy code.

Hi Zachary
I predict that you have trouble with only one unit.
Try to find some one with either the same units ( on same Frequency of course) or a receiver that also covers same Frequency and transmit on one GMR then the other to esablish which unit is faulty!
The faulty unit should then become apparent, the buzzing could be caused by transmisson of the faulty unit, check all Antenna connections, even change antennas over on testing as prescribed above,
good luck John.

Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies


Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.
