Hi Lau,

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.

Cheers,
Peter

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.

Motorola TLKR T3 one way not working but Monitor works...


Check your Private Line (aka interference eliminator code, tone code, PL, quiet call). It sounds like you have one radio set with a PL setting and the other one is open squelch (no private line). All settings for frequency and PL code need to be the same between the two radios.

We don't have a manual for the T3, but I am attaching one for the T5, which may be similar. http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/TLKR-T%20series/Static%20Files/T5%20Manual%20EU.pdf

Hi, i have 2 TLKR-T3 and i cant tune it ,so what can i do? and how can i reset it? thanks in advance


Try setting the radio back to a simple mode of operation. Shut off all special features such as the sub-code (interference eliminator code), VOX, room monitor, and call tones. Go to just one basic channel, such as channel one. Then check to see if the radios talk to one another. If not, check your battery packs, as it takes more energy to transmit than to receive. Swap battery packs and see if the problem moves to the other radio. And lastly, get a third radio involved to see if one of your radios is simply defective.

Only 1 of three transmits


You do not mention which model of TalkAbout radio you have, so we will correspond in general terms. If you have the user guide, read the section describing the "interference code eliminator" or "privacy code". Most likely you have the "code" set differently between the radios. Also, if your model has a Qt filter, set it to off (zero).

Best regards.

One of my tlkr-t3 walkie talkie's will not recieve.


One of my tlkr-t3 walkie talkie's will not recieve.

They worked fine the first time we tried them out. Then they were put away for several weeks, and when they've been switched on, one now doesn't send. I checked this by the other putting in scan mode but it doesn't stop scanning at the channel it is assumed to send with. I tried all the channels for sending but neither one is detected. The other way around, so the first one in scanning mode, the 2nd in send mode, works fine (the scanning stops at the channel of the sending one, as expected).
So my conclusion is, that one doesn't send.
I interchanged the (fresh) batteries, but this doesn;t change.
So what could be the problem?
