I found my Uniden 2-way radio and i put batteries in it and it worked properly. But about 10 hrs later... it doesnt even turn on... the first time when i put in the batteries it showed full bar, but now its blank screen. I did not change the batteries or nothing. please is there a way to reset it or something?

This is frequently caused by corrosion on the battery contacts and the contacts inside the radio. Remove the batteries and wipe all the contacts firmly with a clean dry cloth. Heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool. or sandpaper. After the cleaning, make sure that there is no residue in the battery compartment, then replace the batteries and give them a good charge. If this does not work, it may be time for new batteries -- especially if yours are more than a year old.
The range estimates are inflated by every manufacturer I am familiar with.
Even with line-of-sight transmission, I have found none that meet the claimed distance under common circumstances.
If you have a friend who is a radio amatuer, you might let him crack the case on one to see if there are any adjustments that could be improved; an 'old dog' would be able to locate the right area in which to look and perhaps tweak something to improve either transmitted power (he should have an instrument that would monitor it for adujstment if not for actual measurement) or improve receiver sensitivity.
The factory is only concerned with function and cost, not performance.
That the Motorola meets its stated range doesn't surprise me; they were long one of the most ethical companies around.
I'm not sure of their honesty today since profit (or even survival) has become more important.
Says they can rebuild the battery pack or sell you new cell insert. Might give them a try - I'd prefer to just get the cells and do it myself but I can't figure out how to open the battery pack without wrecking it.
