Does it look like the charger is working?

Batteries have a life of 1-5 years depending on how they are used. Check ebay for a new set of batteries.

I put in a new battery and now the radio beeps when it is keyed up. I put the old battery back in and it works fine. Both batteries fully charged. Any suggestions?


A beep when keyed up can mean a low battery.
1) It is possible your new battery did not take its initial charge, it can take as many as 3 chargings to 'jump start' a new battery. You might try charging the battery an addition 2 full charge cycles.
2) Try the new battery in another SP50 radio to see if it works, or test with a volt meter, if available.
3) Double check the battery is the correct HNN9018 or equivalent NiCd battery. If you are using an after-market battery, check to see if it is a NiCd. If it is a NiMH battery you will need a fast rate charger to charge it up. (On an SP50 the fast rate charger has a blue button on the tray which needs pressed to put it in fast charge mode)
4) This may sound silly, but check to see you installed the battery the correct way. On a Motorola battery the STOP sign would not be visible when installed correctly.
5) If all these items do not solve the 'new battery' problem, you should return the battery to the place of purchase for an exchange.

Best regards.

When pushing the push to talk button either on the radio or the headset cord I get a loud beep over the speaker and the radio won't transmit. I have replaced batteries, reprogramed unit still no fix. Any...


Two thoughts, I know you've replaced the batteries, but this can be a sign of a low, bad or weak battery. You might check your charger to see that the light is coming on and staying on during charging. Also, be certain the radio is shut off during charging.

Secondly, be certain when using any audio device the radio is shut off when plugging in the audio device. And the device is designed to go with the radio you are using it with.

Troubleshooting thoughts: 1) Try a battery directly out of a working radio to see if the problem stops. If the problem persists, you have a radio or device problem. 2) Try the radio without the audio device, with a known good battery. If you still have a problem, you have a radio problem. 3) Try your audio device on a known good radio. If there is no problem, your audio accessory is okay.

Best regards.

My radio on my 2007 chevrolet aveo stop working. It is dead. It is like there is no power.


This happened to me and the next time I beeped the horn the radio came back on. Then for a long time radio would only come on if you beeped the horn. Battery has since gone dead, when I jumped it the radio now works fine. I am convinced wires are crossed and radio still sucks juice from the batttery even when the car is off. Battery stays charged and starts car if you make sure radio is off before shutting car off for the night. Am taking it to the dealer a.s.a.p. So long story short see what happens when you beep the horn.

2000 catera radio stopped working


HAD the same problem and it turned out to be the battery even though all system (i.e. charging, alternator, etc.) were good. Noticed the voltage meter would dip while driving then show a charge when first starting. Bottom line is battery was not holding the proper charge whiel running due to a short in the battery. New battery seems to have taken care of the problem... oh make sure the terminals are really clean.

Will not work on battery


UNPLUG THE RADIO !!!!!!!!!
Try removing the battery cover and remove and disconnect the battery.
Reconnect the battery and replace the battery cover.
Now, plug the radio into the wall electrical outlet and wait, the blue light on the radio top should start flash and will flash for about 10 minutes and then stop flashing.
Leave the radio plugged in for about 16 to 24 hours to completely charge the battery. For the first three or four times, completely drain the battery and completely recharge for 16 to 24 hours, this will condition the battery .... mine works like a dream. GR
