Unexpected problem I have a problem on my IC2G. Before it was ok when I used my other radio and keep my IC2G on the locker and did nothing on it for almost 4 months. When I turn the radio on here it comes , it can transmit but no sound heard on the monitor and vice versa i use the monitor to transmit no sound is heared on my IC2G but the signal meter display is ok when you receive & transmit. According to my friend it just only a matter of adjustment on the VCO I don't know where i could find that. i tried to make a down squelch to check if there's an audible sound then it's ok so I don't know why it's becoming like this where it was not been falling down before. Pls help me to solve this problem...Thanks

Re: unexpected problem

I think you can have problems with the speaker, if you see the signal display working when you reiceve the VCO is working. If you could check (I dont remeber if this radio has audio connectors) external speaker. If this radio has an audio conector, this conector switches the internal and external speaker and could be dirt and is not switching to the internal spk.

One of my cobra radio's will not send any sound through the microphone

The easiest way to check this is with another microphone. If you don't have one then you can use a meter to check the mike cord for broken wires. Also you can check the switch in the mike.

CP185 has intermittent static, when pressing button to talk screen displays "channel busy" and battery will not keep a charge.

Could be one of several issues. A few which come to mind are:

1) You have a bad or poorly charged battery. Static is a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. Try swapping a battery from another radio, with a known good battery and see if the problem is solve. If this resolves the issue check your battery and charger. Tip: Clean all charge contacts with a pencil eraser to ensure good charging. Also, check your 3- or 4-digit date code on the battery. If more than 2 years old, replace the battery. (4-digit date code example 1303 would be 2013 the 3rd week; on 3-digit date codes the first number is the year and the next two the week of the year.)

2) You are trying to use the radio in an area where you are experiences high RF on your frequency. This is the "busy"... someone/something is on or near your radio's frequency and interfering with transmission. Try your radio at a different location and see if the problem persists.

3) Another radio in the workgroup is stuck in transmit, causing static, and the channel busy. Turn off other radios, one at a time, and see if the problem still exists.

4) Or if you have an audio device plugged into the radio, try unplugging it and see if the problem stops. FYI: All audio devices must be plugged or unplugged with the radio shut off. If you plug one in with the radio turned on, you can experience some unexpected intermittent issues.

If none of these seem to be the problem, your radio is likely in need of repair.

Best regards.

Hi I have the T5622 talkabout with a PTT headset. I can transmit OK but I am not receiving anything other than a ''click'' when the other person transmits. I have tested the headset and I am able to recive...

Here a few thoughts which come to mind.
1. You do not mention whether the radios communicate with the headset no on the radio. I will at this point, assume they do.
2. Be certain to have the radio SHUT OFF when plugging in the audio device.
3. Check your VOX settings. It could be your radio is going into VOX mode.
4. Only use the PTT button on the headset. Do not press the PTT on the radio at any time while using the headset.
5. Check that you have CALL TONES shut off.
6. Lastly, if nothing else works, go back to a basic mode, and set both radios where there are no special features turned on. ie turn off CODE, Qt Filter, VOX, Call Tones, etc.
Here is a link to the manual:

Best regards.

I get static after someone else talks

One of the main causes of static can be a bad battery. If you are using rechargeable batteries you need to replace them every 14-18 months. If you are using alkaline batteries, they have been known not to fully power the radio once your cross the 10 hour mark. Your radio would then be operating in somewhat of a brown out. This would lead to static.

Another cause of static is simply being nearly out of range of the other radio(s).

The burst of white noise at the end of Rx on some radios can be rather annoying. On the basic talkabout radios there is nothing which can be done to solve the problem, other than replacing the radio.

How do I get my motorola T5725 radios to talk to eack other

Hell ssalah,

Most of the time when one radio cannot talk to the other radio it means that the Privacy Codes are not configured properly. In order for the two radios to talk to one another they both have to be set to the same channel and Privacy Code or the Privacy Code function needs to be turned off on both radios.

The Privacy Codes can be used to keep the radios silent unless they receive a signal from another radio using the same code. This enables the radios to be used on busy channels with a minimum of interference. If Privacy Codes are turned off on one radio and turned on for the other radio, the situation you describe will occur.

Consult the user's manual for information on the Privacy Code function and either disable the function on both radios or set both radios to the same code.
Best Regards,
