SOURCE: Motorola Talkabout 5700, 60 second timeout?

The 60 second timeout is a feature which is necessary to keep from burning up the final amplifier in the unit. It keeps the user from ruining their radio. Most radios, including business radios have this feature. Continually holding down the PTT will also run the battery down very quickly.

It would be best to try getting a regular baby monitor.

SOURCE: Battery not holding charge

Hi,
Sounds like your battery is going. Many Mp3 players can have their batteries replaced, the problem is finding someone with the parts or who is willing to do it. I have found that the batteries are usually the same as the iPod shuffles use. The battery is probably soldered onto the circuit board so the shop will need to be able to solder. You may be able to get service from the factory. Hope that helps.

Cant sync radios


The MU21CV radio is user programmable. Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT button to count it up to the frequency you desire. Press the smaller monitor button to lock in your freq. Then the radio will announce the code number. Once again using the PTT button count it up to your desired code or the word OFF if you are not wanting a code. Then press the monitor button to lock in the code. At this point you can turn off the radio and turn it back on normally (without holding in the PTT). Your radios should be programmed to match one another. If you are still having trouble you may have a radio which needs repair or a bad/low battery.
Best regards.

Typically this would indicate a battery problem. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit. If the radio still shuts off when the PTT is pressed you have a radio problem. If it works fine, then you know your battery, despite showing fully charged, is bad.

Ptt cant go through


It is possible you have a battery or charging problem. Transmitting takes more energy than any other function of the radio. Pressing the PTT can quickly reveal a bad or poorly charged battery pack. Check your charger, clean all battery contacts on the charger and radio with a pencil eraser and try charging again. Also, you can try changing a battery out of a known good unit and see if the problem moves with the battery.

Change language setting motorola mv22


Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. First it will announce the frequency, then press the monitor button once, then it will announce the code, press the monitor button one time again, then if it is equipped with a language choice, you will get to select your language by using the PTT button to walk through the choices, lock in your choice by pressing the monitor button one time. Shut the radio off, then back on without holding in any buttons... you are ready to use the radio.

Best regards.

Motorola talkabout MJ270R switching off when transmitting


Turning off while transmitting is typically a sign of a weak or bad battery. However, since you mention it happens with either battery type, another cause might be the length of time you are depressing the PTT button. These radios have a fail-safe to prevent damaging the final amplifier of the radio. To protect itself the radio will shut down or stop transmitting after the PTT button is held in too long. This being said, I'd check the batteries first. The rechargeable battery pack which came with the radio has a one year life expectancy. A battery can test full when it is weak and might not hold the charge when placed under a load. And usually transmit is the first thing to fail.

Best regards.

Re: MagOne by Motorola, BPR40 -- What button should I push and how many times to make a radio stop beeping repeatedly before I can communicate? Thanks!


None of the buttons will solve this issue.

A repeating low tone is heard when you press the PTT if your battery level is low. You may have a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so the first place this shows up is when pressing the PTT. A quick way to check this is to swap batteries with a known good radio and see if the problem switches to the other radio.

Battery tips: Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to remove the film caused by hand oil. Always charge your battery with the radio turned off. And be certain your charger is plugged into an outlet that is not connected to a light switch shutting off power. Batteries last approx. 2 years. Check your battery's date code to see its age. (3 or 4 digit number, first one-two numbers are the year, second two are the week of the year. example: 1132 would be 2011 the 32nd week)

If the above does not solve your problem, you should see your local Motorola dealer, or a nationwide repair center for more assistance. Current flat rate repair on this style unit is typically around $69.

FYI: Your buttons are likely top button = monitor/sticky monitor and the bottom button could be hi/low power, scan or one of several other features. Each button has a short and a long press option.

Best regards.

They used to talk to one another but now they don't


Here's your help:

Read out one of your radios by holding in the PTT while turning on the radio. It will announce the Frequency. Then press the Monitor Button and it will announce the code. Press the monitor button again, to leave the code set, and then shut off the radio.

On the second radio: Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT to get to the number you need to match the first radio. To lock in the setting press the smaller button, known as the Monitor Button.

This will make the radio announce the private line code number. Using the PTT set this to the code number of your first radio, then press the Monitor Button to lock in your code.

Shut the radio off and turn it on again to begin use.
