You possibly have the "code" set differently on one unit. Check your programming, including the Qt filter, if any. Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

I can transmit but not receive a reply


Check to see your interference eliminator code and Qt filter (if any) are set identical among your radios. For basic operation, set these to off (zero).

Motorola T5420 won't transmit to each other.


Since you say the frequency is set the same, you possibly have the code set differently. Check your interference eliminator code. It must be set the same on all radios. For basic operation turn the code off (zero).

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

This unit does not have a reset button. While troubleshooting you might check the batteries. Be certain they are in correctly and the contacts are free of corrosion. You can use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Walk through all the programming instructions in the manual, double checking both the frequency and interference eliminator codes. A quick setting back to zero on the code would alleviate any problem with that section of the radio.

As far as your "paging" this operates on the same frequency and code as the rest of the radio. If the radios are not working correctly in this relm, the paging will not work either.

No transmition


You can find the manual here http://www.giantintl.com/motorolafrsold.htm by using the menu to select your radio model.

You most likely will need to program your radios to match one another. Pay special attention to the interference eliminator code and the the Qt filter (if any). Both radios must match perfectly to communicate.

Ring tone thingy


Setting and Transmitting Call Tones
Your radio can transmit different call tones to other radios in your group so you can alert them that you want to talk.
To set a call tone:
1. With the radio on, press MENU 3 times. The current call tone setting flashes and displays.
2. Press + or - to change and hear the call tone.
3. Press MENU or PTT to set the new call tone or turn feature off.

Motorola T5420 Transmit Problem


Here are some troubleshooting thoughts:

1. Is your battery indicator showing at least 2-3 bars? (Battery Note: Your rechargeable batteries may fail due to setting without use for a long period of time. They need replaced every 12-14 months usually. A good tip is to charge them once a month to keep the chemical in the battery active.)

2. Check to see your Qt noise filter is shut off. Refer to page 22 of the owners manual. It is possible you have some radios set to Y and others to N. To assure good communications you should set all of them to N.

3. With your radios set to interference code zero, place your radios one at a time in scan mode, while you transmit/talk on one individual radio. See if any of the radios receive. Do this with each radio individually to see if you are transmitting at all. NOTE: This test will determine if you have any ability to transmit. If you do not receive any sound on the 3 radios setting in scan mode, the individual radio you are testing will not transmit.

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


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.
