It is doubtful you ruined your battery, as they are designed to be left charging for periodic long periods, such as a full weekend, when a business is not open.

If you battery previously worked before charging it, I would suggest checking the connection to the radio, and the battery contacts on both the radio and the battery. It is possible you have flattened one of the contacts or some other contact problem.

If the battery did not recently work, it is possible it simply needs replaced.

Lastly, you might want to verify your charger is working. It is possible the battery did not get charged, and is completely dead. This is the least likely scenerio, as it is rare a battery is stone dead, unless it is no good.

Try a battery from a known good radio on the effected radio and make certain the radio is functional. If so, check the contacts, if okay, replace the bad battery.

Best regards.

Why motorola radius cp200 flashes red while charging?


Typically when the charger flashes red you have one of the following conditions:
1) The battery is simply too low to charge. Leave it on the charger for a few hours to see if it resolves. If it is a new battery return the battery for a replacement.
2) Your battery is not making good connection. Clean the battery and charger contacts with a pencil eraser. Check your contacts in the charge itself to make certain one isn't damaged or broken.
3) Your battery has an internal short. Test the battery on another charger to see if you get the same result. If so, replace the battery. 4) If you have a charger problem, the best test is to try another battery in the charger. Reminder: be certain the insert is turned the correct direction for the battery you are using.
Best regards.

Battery and charger tips


The M series Motorola radios such as the MU21CV, come equipped with a NiCD rechargeable battery. This battery when fully charged should operate the radio a full 8-10 hour business day. The batteries have a life expectancy of 18-24 months.

The original Motorola battery has a date code in the white box above the stop sign on the back of the battery. The first digit is the year, and the next two are the week of the year. Example: 919 would be 2009, the 19th week. (Unless very old and it could be 1999)

When replacing the battery it is important to install the battery correctly. Put the top of the battery into the radio first, then slide the bottom into place. This method will cause the least pressure on the internal battery contacts.

If you battery's contacts are dirty or filmed, simply clean them with a pencil eraser. Do not use solvents or a knife blade on the contacts. The radio's contacts can also be cleaned with a pencil eraser.

The wall adapter style charger which came with the M series radio can burn out over time (much like a lightbulb). Replacement chargers are available. If your charger light is flashing, you most likely have a bad battery. If your charger light does not illuminate, you have a bad charger.

Replacement batteries and chargers are available, as is repair of this style unit.

Ntn7143cr battery won,t charge. put in charger flashes red then green.


Clean your battery contacts on the battery and charger with a pencil eraser to assure good contact. Flashing red or flashing in general usually is the sign of a too low to charge battery, a shorted battery or a bad connection. In some instances, a battery will begin to charge once left on the flashing charger for an hour or so. Try this and see if the light becomes constant. If so, it is charging. If it still flashes, replace the battery.

Best regards.

Walkie talkie batteries don't last


The Batteries that Motorola uses will die after a while mainly because people leave them on the charger all of the time. But there is a way to refresh them. You let the battery die completely, then you charge it up for about 12 hours. Then you let the battery die completely. Do this a couple of times and the batteries will last long.
Also, Motorola use to make a battery refresher (or did when I worked there.) It will charge and drain the battery automatically. It will even give you a fault if the battery is completely dead. For the HT1000 (for example) it would be the WPPN4065BR.
For future reference, don't constantly charge a battery. Only have it on the charger when the battery is actually dead or very low. This will increase battery life.

How do i program my motorola mts 2000 flashport scanner


Your Motorola MTS2000 is not a scanner but a high-end two-way radio. It requires a computer, special interface box (called a RIB, for Radio Interface Box), the proper cable from the radio to the RIB, and the programming software called RSS (Radio Service Software.)

This is much more difficult than a scanner to program and if not done properly can cause the radio to automatically transmit on frequencies that you are not authorized to use.

Try calling your local Motorola dealer and ask them if they will program it for you for receiving only. They will either flatly refuse or they will be happy to charge you a service fee. Some places are more willing than others.

We have a number of these in our plant, and we have had them for a year now and 1/2 of them the screen does not work and half our dead and they have been on the charger this entire time. We switched...


If changing the batteries does not solve the problem, and the screen is not working the radio is needing replaced. These are a disposable radio, not repairable. They were designed for light usage. They are a "family" radio designed for biking/hiking/vacationing.

The 1/2 of your units which are just dead, you might recheck the chargers and batteries to make certain they are good. Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser on both the radio, battery and charger, to see if it helps with the charging. Make certain the radio is always turned off when on the charger.

To troubleshoot take a known good battery and try it in each of the dead radios. If it solves the problem, you know you need new batteries.

It would be adviseable to start to migrate to a repairable business radio for your plant. Business radios such as the Motorola CP110 and BPR40 are designed to take the punishment of a 40 hour work week, and are repairable. One of the channels in these business style radios could be programmed to match your existing units, to help you in the transition.

No, the charger is only usable to charge the rechargeable NiMH or Li-Ion battery which comes with the radio. Attempting to charge Alkaline rechargeable batteries with this charger could cause the to expode. If your charger is not charging the batteries which came with the units, it could be you do not have the charger cord end plugged in all the way, or the batteries dropped below the initial charge level by setting on a store shelf too long. Most TalkAbouts come with a cradle style charger to hold the radio, and a possible plug to plug into the charge hole. Check all connections, and clean any battery/charger contacts with a pencil eraser. To re-initialize the batteries you would need to attempt 3-5 charge cycles by charging for 8-10 hours, then letting the battery rest for 8-10 hours, repeating 3-5 times as needed. If this does not bring the battery back to life, you need to replace the batteries.

GP 360 Radio Charger


On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

MTS2000 software will operate on Win98 and possibly XP, depending on the revision number you have. Yes, you can clone if the model number is the same. It will clone the entire codeplug of the radio. (Note: you will not have 2 same serial numbers. These are unique to the individual radio.)

The radio can only be programmed or adjusted by the use of a computer and the proper software. What exactly is it doing or not doing? Do you keep it on the charger all the time?
