Not any recalls on this product. However, here are a few tips which may help:
1) There are 4 types of CP200 batteries: Li-Ion, Li-Ion Slim, NiMH, and NiCD. Due to the differing thicknesses Motorola provides an insert which can be turned around to accommodate the battery (or batteries) you have with your radio. When you look at the charger you will see two plastic ears sticking up beyond the charge cup. When you squeeze these ears toward one another you can lift the insert up and out of the charger. Turn the insert around according to which battery thickness you have. Then snap the insert back into the charging base. Your battery should rest and depress the spring loaded charge contacts in the base.
2) The insert has rails which guide the battery into place. You can see on your battery sides there are grooves which match the shape of the rails. In the beginning when all parts are new you must be very purposeful to slide the battery into place, but as the battery and charger begin to have more use you will find it easier to slide.
3) The CP200 charger can accommodate a radio with a battery on it, or a battery alone. (Tip: Always be certain the radio is turned off while on the charger.)
4) The only issue we have every seen customers experience with the CP200 charger is from rough handling. An internal plastic piece which holds the charge contacts in place can be broken if users are very rough when putting the radio in the charger. This is rare, but is known to happen.
Hope this helps.
Best regards.

SOURCE: My Motorola Radius CP200 has lost all channels that was set by dealer is there a way to reset back to factory settings?

It is seldom a CP200 loses frequencies/PL code settings. It is more likely the radio has a bad battery or another issue. The only way to reprogram the radio is by taking it back to a Motorola dealer, as they are all dealer programmable only. Sorry.

Best regards.

Battery will jump, not hold charge. While driving, cd player and radio come on and off by itself. Also other electrical issues like the electric seat and door locks are intermittantly acting up.


Electrical problem in cars can be a real bear to troubleshoot. Suggestions are a leak to ground draining the battery. Bad battery a possibility but this wouldn't explain the other problems. Check that you have good grounds and connections. This kind of problem can have pros scratching their heads but a good one might zero right in on the problem.

1970 CB450 charging problems. Just looking for a demonstration how to check the magneto, stator and rectifier, and maybe a quick explanation how to replace them


Being a 1970 vehicle you have the older copper oxide rectifier,if you have charging problems,that type of rectifier output usually drops to about 1/2 battery voltage. It is located under the seat between the back fender and the bottom bar that the seat rests on,also more often than not, you get a really strong odor of rotten egg smell from a defective copper-oxide rectifier. Solution, replace with a 6-10 amp bridge rectifier from Radio Shack. Your charging voltage should be in the range of 13.8 -14v@ 1500 rpm.

Nania Rider sp instruction manual required


My solution to this problem is to look for a Certified Child Passenger Technician in your area, so they can look and teach you how to install the seat in your car, also they can check if the seat is recall or not. Some places do this free of charge, some others may charge a small fee.

ask to have a record for recalls on your car recalls are repairs
than dealer have to get done to cars free of charge

the way the recalls are set by goverment agencies is by complaints from customers to the higway safety administration
or also to the customer afair i thing so
when they receive too many complaints with same problems then they will force the dealer to fix many cars free of charge,
i hope and this help
but make sure to ask the dealer for recalls of your car. and ask for a print out.

Flickering LED flashlight


It sounds as if the connections in the back of the radio may not be continually connected to the contacts on the charging base. You might want to make sure that the radio is properly loaded in the cradle of the charging stand. The reason why the lights 'flicker' is because if your power goes out, the light on the radio will come on when it detects no power to the charging base. This is a feature to many new emergency radio gadgets. Imagine a storm rolling through your area and the power goes out in the middle of the night. Your Vector radio's LED lights come on so that you aren't searching for the radio in the dark.
