Just did this on mine. Remove the battery cover and battery. With a small flathead screw driver pry the left and right side of the battery tray away from the wall. then pry up the bottom of the tray, flip it up and remove it. this will expose two black plastic tabs near the top of the battery compartment, one on each side, pry them gently away from the wall to release the catches and then insert a screwdriver between the circuit board and the bottom of the case, this will push the whole assembly out the top of the radio as one piece. Be careful you are bending alot of fragile plastic.

I have a motorola mv11c and it works fine and I just purchased a pair of motorola mv21cv. They must be on a different frequency my question is how do I change the frequence on my mv21cv radios to be...

Hold in the PTT button while you turn on the radio. It will announce the frequency number. You can use the PTT button to change the number. Then press the Monitor (small possibly red) button to lock in your setting. The next number your radio announces will be the Code. Use the same method to change the code if needed. Then press the Monitor button to lock in your setting. Once you have set both your freq and code you can turn the radio off, then turn back on normally and use the radios.

Best regards.

Kenwood FreeTalk XL TK-3101 2-Way Radio

Hello hiyya1311,

I would really recommend against painting the radio. Paints may contain chemicals that can be harmful to electronics. Even if you could get the outer shell of the chassis completely removed and separated from the electronics components before painting (which is likely not a small undertaking), the paint can still emit fumes for a long time after drying and those fumes could potentially contain corosive chemicals.

As far as cleaning, most manufacturers recommend thay you simply wipe the outside of the unit off with a damp cloth when cleaning is needed. (NOTE: a damp cloth NOT a wet one.) Most radios are gasketed against dust so the inside of the radio should not require any cleaning. Should the grooves along the outside of radio require extra attention you can use a dry (or damp, if necessary) cotton swab. (Again, not a wet cotton swab.) Do not use cleanser or chemical cleaning products on the radio under any circumstances.

If you have experience in disassembling electronics devices and feel comfortable in your ability to take the unit apart and put it back together, instructions on doing so (including diagrams) are in the manufacturer's service manual which is available from Kenwood Communications. You can contact the manufacturer on their website at However this should rarely (if ever) be required for cleaning the unit and may void your warranty if you still under the warranty period of the radio.

Best regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."
