Question about Motorola 53727 Earbud with Push-To-Talk Microphone

1 Answer

I want to use my Motorola Talkabout and iPod through the same earbud, is there an adapter of some kind?

I'm listening for radio traffic, but it's mostly quiet, so I'd like to listen to music too through the same earbud. Is there a Stereo-to-Mono adapter I can clip into the base of the earbuds, like a reverse splitter? I don't want a switch, the radio can talk over the music or drop it before talking, either way is fine. Everything has to fit in my pocket since I'm not usually carrying a bag and can't have stuff on my belt.

Hi Dimitri,

Q. Does your Motorola have an ext speaker outlet, if so, then going the a radioshack or similar store would be an avenue, make sure you take your Motorola with you so they can give you the right adapter.

If this is successful, I believe we've solved the problem.

I hope that this solves the problem for you.

Kind regards,
Peter

SOURCE: Push to talk problem

Hi,

If indeed radio #1 has a mic problem, this may be confirmed by trying an external speaker/microphone plugged into the accessory jack. If still a no, then its not the mic but possibly the modulator circuitry. If there is transmit audio with the external mic and hence internal mic is defective, the unit would have to be pried open and the defective component replaced. The internal mic is normally an electrofet 2-3 terminal soldered to a shielded wire and physically attached to the front plate.

Alternately, another possibility is that radio #2 has its Interference Eliminator Code enabled/activated. This is indicated by the presence of small sized digits on the top right of display. If this is the case and no similar digits are displayed in radio #1, then radio #2 will not allow any received transmission to be heard. Along the same line of reasoning, if the code is activated on both radios signified by the presence of the 2 small digits, and radio #1 has a problem with its CTCSS (code) generator, then it would also prevent reception of radio #2. A way to verify this is by deactivating/disabling the Interference Eliminator Codes on both radios.

On certain occasion, it is also possible that radio #2 has a defective speaker. You should be able to verify this by plugging in an external speaker to the accessory jack of radio #2.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Motorola talkabout MR350 headset only sends audio and can not recieve


Likely not compatible. One thing to try is to make certain the transmitting unit is turned OFF when you initially plug in the headset. Sometimes if a headset is plugged into a radio when it is already ON, the headset will appear to be in VOX (voice activated) mode and will not allow the user to receive. Also, if this headset has an inline PTT, it may not be compatible with the radio and you would need to use the PTT on the radio.

If this doesn't work, you would need to use the TalkAbout headset designed for the MR350.

Best regards.

Issues with Motorola TalkAbout T5900 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio. Do they need FCC programing & licensing to operate? Because I can not get the to communicate with each other!


Yes they do.The thing about the talkabout is that they work according to the network area they are connected to and the number of the talkabout they are also connected to.So all you need do now is to take the talkabout to motorola shop so that they can confrigure it for you.

Where can I buy repair parts for my Motorola T5720 Talkabout radio?


So sorry, parts have never been available for the TalkAbout line of radios (other than TalkAbout Distance & DPS). If you are looking to repair an existing T5720 unit, your best option would be to locate a like-model for parts. eBay can be a good source.

As for replacement batteries and accessories you can use the Motorola TalkAbout Accessory Store.

Best regards.
