Some models vary, but generally you need to set a sensitivity level for the VOX (1 through 9) using the UP/DOWN keys, and then push the transmit button to confirm the setting. Once you do that, the VOX should remain on after you power down and then power back up.

If you are not using a vox headset in the jack it will not work. headphones are only AF audio and will not transmit. You need a vox capable Ear/Mic kit for your particular radio.

The three things which come to mind are:
1) Is the headset the VOX headset intended for the radio model? Sometimes the rings on the plug do not match the internal points of contact if it is not the intended headset. Not all headsets are VOX capable.
2) Is the headset plugged in all the way. (You mentioned plugging in and then turning on. This is good. You must always have the radio turned off when plugging or unplugging an audio device.)
3) Try pressing the PTT on the headset cord one time before switching the dip switch to VOX. (Assuming you have a headset with the small box in the line.)

Lastly, if you continue to have difficulties, contact Motorola at the 800# provided in the user guide. They should be able to assist you.

Best regards.

Check your VOX/ iVOX settings. You will need VOX for using an audio device.

Microphone setting


The face is an indicator for VOX, voice activation. If you are using an audio device (headset or earpiece) with the radio that is VOX capable, this icon will appear. General rule of thumb, make certain the radio is turned off when plugging in any audio device. Plug in firmly, you will feel a slight click when the plug is fully seated. To turn off VOX while you have an audio device plugged in simply press the PTT on the radio.

Here is a link to the user guide for more info concerning VOX. It begins on page 22. http://www.pager.net/LRSimages/PDFs/cls_series_userguide.pdf

How do you disable the VOX setting on a Talkabout MR350 2 way radios. I wan to use it with a headset, but do not want VOX on.


Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/MR350-351%20User%20Guide%2012-16-08%20KEM-PK14190-90.pdf You will find the instructions for VOX and iVOX on the bottom of page one, and at the beginning of page 2.

Be certain when plugging in your audio accessory that the radio is turned off. If the radio is left on inadvertently, you would have no control over the VOX settings, it would immediately be in a confused VOX mode.

Also, with most Motorola radios, if VOX begins to occur, turn off the radio, and then re-insert the audio device plug. And in some instances, pressing the PTT on the radio when you are having a VOX occurrence will put the radio back to push-to-talk status.

Best regards.

We tried using a headset with it. Now, without the headset it goes back and forth between iVox and regular mode everytime you push the PTT button. Is there a way to stop it from going into Vox mode?


Here is a link to the user guide, reference page 22 for instructions on turning iVOX and VOX on or off: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf (Double check you do not have the lock symbol showing while trying to change programming.)

Also, another phenomenon which can occur is when you unplug a headset or audio device while the radio is still turned on. This can leave the radio partially in VOX mode. You might try plugging in the device with the radio turned off. Then turn the radio on, use the device in VOX mode. Then shut the radio off and remove the device. See if it clears the radio's sense of having a headset plugged in.

A damaged jack can also cause the same problem.

Best regards.

How do I set my sx700 radio to work with hands-free headsets? Any assistance would be appreciated.


Hands-Free Use With Accessories (VOX)
You can transmit hands-free with the use of optional accessories. Once
VOX is turned on, the radio detects your voice and transmits when you
speak.
1. Turn the radio off and plug the VOX accessory into the accessory
port.
2. Turn the radio on. VOX shows on the display.
3. Adjust the volume appropriately by rotating the volume knob . Lower the volume
before placing the accessory on your head or in your ear.
4. To turn off, simply remove accessory.
Note: There is a short delay between the time you start talking and
when the radio transmits. There is a short delay before the
transmission is completed.

Owners Manual: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf

You must be using a VOX capable accessory. Generally this is an accessory without an in-line PTT.

Motorola T6310 Talkabout Sound only comes out of earphones


We have discussed your dilemma. Check your audio jack hole to be certain nothing is still in the hole. Check to see you have the VOX setting turned to a normal or off setting. Typically the radio will shut off the front speaker when an audio device is plugged into the jack. If the radio senses the device, or a small piece of the plug is stuck in the jack, or the jack is damaged, it will shut off the front speaker.

Since you can hear when using the headphone, it is apparent you have the radios programmed to the same frequency and code settings. This leads us to believe it is not a programming issue, short of the VOX feature, or mic gain. You might double check these settings.

Problem with Headphones


Hi,

Can you pls add a few more details:
1. are the 2.5mm jacks stereo (3 pins) or mono (2 pins):
2. is your universal headset monaural or stereo; and
3. originally, did the universal headset came with 2 separate plugs?

At most that I can give you is a general/generic idea. The external speaker/microphone (or in your case the universal headset) uses also the charge jack, chances are that it is a multi terminal/pin jack. Pls refer to the diagram below.

5be4da5.jpg

The reason it is in continuous transmit is because one of the mini speaker is wired to the PTT trigger or the pins are wired wrong;

This would also explain why no transmit audio either manual or via VOX.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Transmits by itself


Check if the VOX features is turned on, check if the Ptt button has the "normal" bouncing or clicking.
