Question about Radio Communications
Makes an interference sound all the time
Is this a proper 2-way radio or a dinky toy?
If the latter is the case, chuck it in the bin and get yourself a real radio.
If it is a real 2-way radio, then I will try to find a solution for you. Please reply with full details, post a picture of the unit with your reply, and we'll go from there.

SOURCE: 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.

Generally a crackling sound coming through a speaker indicated the speaker is damaged (or blown). This can happen due to phyical damage such as dropping; old age' or running the device at full volume most of the time. The T5000 is a non-repairable radio. If less than one year old you may be able to get it replaced under warrranty. If more than one year old, you will need to replace the unit.

Your PL or DPL is not set correctly.
Check your owners manual, you can set this with the user buttons on the radio.
Press and hold the PTT button while turning the radio on. this will put the radio in the programing mode.
Be careful, if you do not know how to set the PL DPL or frequency you could make the problem worse.
