Midland GTX800 "X-Tra Talk" 2-way radios will not transmit

My GTX 800 will not transmit. When I depress the push to talk button or the call button, the screen flashes all it's numbers and icons. It will receive random transmissions from other units on the channel. This is happening with both my handhelds. I reset both units to their most basic modes. The manual does not address this issue.

    I have the same problem. You depress the PTT switch and the screen goes nuts and you transmit in broken bits. Help!

Are you sure that the batteries are running well?
Try using alkaline batteries just for testing.

My Midland walkie talkie quits transmitting about 3 seconds after I start transmitting


It is more likely a power issue. PTT switches do not normally cause a short circuit. Check the batteries, swap the batteries and see if that helps. Radios take a great deal more power to transmit than turn on or receive. If not the battery, try a low voltage battery, such as a cordless phone battery. If it still occurs, check your warrany and send it back to the factory.

I need the instruction manual for the Midland Gxt745 X-tra Talk radios.


Midland doesn't have one for the GXT745, but the GXT720 is very similar.

If you are using vox (voice activated transmit) go into the menu and make sure you don't have the VOX setting too high. You should be able to put the headset on... hit the "push to talk" button on the radio and transmit you audio. Turn the other radio on and make sure the radio is "keying" (tx with no auio) then make sure there is audio. If you don't have audio but the radio is transmitting.. you might have the wrong type of plug on your headset for the audio..... there are 2 plugs... 1 for transmit audio....1 for recieve audio. It could be the wrong type of plug for the jack in the radio. Regardless.. the way the headset works is either you push the "push to talk button" onj the radio OR you use the VOX function... with the vox function you just have to talk into the mic to transmit. This is what your headset is designed for. You will have to go into the menu and set up the radio for VOX. If you still have problems follow my directions at the top of this page ( check mic jack and stuff) I think you just have to set the radio up for VOX operation and set the VOX setting. You should be able to push the push to talk button and talk through the mic on the headset. If you don't get any audio that way there is a problem and you should check the jack and plug on the headset.
