Just plugeed in my t6530 to charge (it's been over two years since I've used them) and the charging light won't come on. The batteries are dead, but we don't know if its the batteries that need to be replaced or the charge. Thoughts?

Re: talkabout t6530 walkies can't get them to charge
You could use a multimeter to test whats coming from the charger, but I suspect the batteries might need to be replaced, or leave them on the charger overnight or for a few hours and see if theres any improvement.

You might try http://wirelesspro.com, we have found them to carry most TalkAbout accessories and batteries. Before ordering battery packs, you might try switching your existing good battery to the other radio and see if it solves the problem. This would assure you that it is indeed a battery problem.
Your NiCd batteries are likely no good, or you could have a bad charger, considering your radio works with AAs and not the NiCD. This type of battery lasts about 14-18 months before needing to be replaced.
The Batteries that Motorola uses will die after a while mainly because people leave them on the charger all of the time. But there is a way to refresh them. You let the battery die completely, then you charge it up for about 12 hours. Then you let the battery die completely. Do this a couple of times and the batteries will last long. Also, Motorola use to make a battery refresher (or did when I worked there.) It will charge and drain the battery automatically. It will even give you a fault if the battery is completely dead. For the HT1000 (for example) it would be the WPPN4065BR. For future reference, don't constantly charge a battery. Only have it on the charger when the battery is actually dead or very low. This will increase battery life.
Please open the set with the help of screw driver , & check for functionality of switch , & remove any particle that is jamming PTT button . You can check the functionality of walkie talkie by pushing the PTT inner switch with the help of a screw driver.
No, the charger is only usable to charge the rechargeable NiMH or Li-Ion battery which comes with the radio. Attempting to charge Alkaline rechargeable batteries with this charger could cause the to expode.
If your charger is not charging the batteries which came with the units, it could be you do not have the charger cord end plugged in all the way, or the batteries dropped below the initial charge level by setting on a store shelf too long. Most TalkAbouts come with a cradle style charger to hold the radio, and a possible plug to plug into the charge hole. Check all connections, and clean any battery/charger contacts with a pencil eraser. To re-initialize the batteries you would need to attempt 3-5 charge cycles by charging for 8-10 hours, then letting the battery rest for 8-10 hours, repeating 3-5 times as needed. If this does not bring the battery back to life, you need to replace the batteries.
