Question about Radio Communications
Old battery quit charging on one hand set. Bought new batteries, one hand set will not charge. The base works and the hand set will work on regular batteries, just not on the recharging batteries. Radio Shack told me that the recharging part of the walkie talkie my be bad. Cost to fix?
A simple problem to solve at last!!!
Inside the battery compartment you should find a switch, which indicates Recharge/Normal, make sure you select recharge if your using these batteries, otherwise no charging occurs.
If this does not work, take out the recharchables and select normal on switch, place fully charged normal batteries into the compartment, making sure you put them in the right way around, close the flap and turn on the radio, if this works, then your battery switch is faulty, however, you can get lithium ion batteries, which will last longer than most other high duty batteries.
The cost of getting these radios is not worth the money, unless you are technically minded and buy the repacement switch and repair it yourself.
Otherwise try all of the above, and remember, when charging batteries that are rechargeable, never leave the radio on, as this can wear out your batteries quickly.
I hope this advice is helpful to you.

You might try cleaning the battery contacts and the charger contacts with a pencil eraser. It could be you are not getting good connection. Also check your batteries to see they are installed correctly and are touching the internal battery contacts to the radio. Try switching the battery pack to the opposite radio, as a test to see if one will turn on. It would be highly unusual for both radios and/or chargers to fail at the same time. So the problem is probably something simple.

This is more for "mshtexas" than the OP but I'm sure there may be others out there wondering the same thing. The power cord that comes with this unit has a 9.0v output at 200mA with the center pin being positive
