The first thing which comes to mind is a bad battery pack. You might try switching the batteries between the two units and see if the problem moves to the other unit.

Secondly, if you only have two radios, it could be the opposite radio has poor receive. You could have a damaged or defective speaker in the receiving unit.

Third, check the speaker grill and mic holes on both units to see they are clear of debris.

If all these items check out, you may need to eventually replace the defective radio. However, to determine which one is defective by trying them with a known good radio.

Radio will not send


It is possible your Code for transmit is different than your Code for receive. Cobra makes so many models, you are not giving enough information. Also, Transmit takes a LOT of power, so even if everything is setup, if your batts are weak or old, the radio will receive, but not transmit. Also check your antenna, make sure it is tight and NEVER transmit without an antenna. Yes, all lights will work even with old batteries.

Motorola Talkabout MR will not transmit


From reading through your settings, they appear to be identical. Except, I am not certain what Vox 2 is, or B5 0. If the number 2 beside VOX is a setting, you should set it to off or zero. Otherwise, they appear like they should work. (VOX = voice activation, and when enabled will cause a radio to transmit when it hears a sound, voice, etc.)
If you are using an audio device such as an earpiece or headset, be certain you are plugging it in with the radio turned OFF.
Lack of transmit can also be a sign of a bad battery or bad battery connection. You might try swapping the batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio.
If these are less than one year old, use the number in your user guide to contact Motorola for a possible warranty replacement.

Best regards.

Cp100 hard to hear, scratchy and low volume. perfect sound using ear piece.


Do you use the device in an environment where metal filings are present? This may have clogged the internal speaker in the device. Water or dirt will cause the same problem, though metal is most often the issue.

Try using a powerful magnet to draw out any metal stuck to the speaker surface or housing.

Audio is very scratchy/static


If it makes a scratchy sound when the volume is turned up and down then the carbon contacts on the volume control are most likely the culprit you can attempt to clean them with rubbing alchol and a Q-tip.

Bad transmission


Troubleshooting ideas:
1) Try the radio without the remote speaker mic (RSM) attached. Do you still have the same issue?
2) Check the RSM's mic area for dirt/debris or something covering the hole. It is usually in the lower corner of the grill area of the mic.
3) Try someone else's RSM on your radio and see if the problem is still there.
4) Check your battery. An old or defective battery will cause transmit issues. Try a known-good battery from another radio to see.
5) If all of the above are addressed and you still have an issue, you may be experiencing low transmit power, and your radio would need to be serviced.

Won't transmit


First I would check the interference code on both radios to see if it is set the same. It is possible you have one set to zero and the other set to another number. This would cause the problem you describe. The interference eliminator is designed to block out transmissions from radios whose settings do not match it.

If all your settings are identical, and you have only 2 radios, it is not possible to tell which one has the problem. You either have one with no transmit or one with no receive. The only way to tell which you have is to get a 3rd radio involved, set to the same settings.

T5710 Will Not xmit, etc.


I know you say your batteries are good. However, the symptoms you are describing would indicate a bad battery. Just to be sure, you might swap the batteries between the units and see if the problem moves with the battery. If not, you are correct, the batteries are good.
The next issue would be an internal radio issue, such as the unit has gotten wet or moist, and corrosion is beginning to form on the board. OR it is possible you have a hairline crack in the component board and this is causing some of the traces to make a poor connection.
FYI: It is common with these smaller types of radios for people to put them in their back pocket and sit on them. This will many times cause hairline cracks in the component board, or will cause small components to pop off the board.

Staying keyed up after button release


I have never seen this problem before, check if the VOX is activated, this could cause to transmit the radio, but the voice must be transmited. check if the Accesory connector is not dirty, clogged or damaged
