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.

Why motorola radius cp200 flashes red while charging?


Typically when the charger flashes red you have one of the following conditions:
1) The battery is simply too low to charge. Leave it on the charger for a few hours to see if it resolves. If it is a new battery return the battery for a replacement.
2) Your battery is not making good connection. Clean the battery and charger contacts with a pencil eraser. Check your contacts in the charge itself to make certain one isn't damaged or broken.
3) Your battery has an internal short. Test the battery on another charger to see if you get the same result. If so, replace the battery. 4) If you have a charger problem, the best test is to try another battery in the charger. Reminder: be certain the insert is turned the correct direction for the battery you are using.
Best regards.

Motorola radius cp200 will not hold a charge


when charging a new battery for the FIRST time, most require a full 24 hours to be properly charged. Failing to do this will drastically diminish the life of the battery. If you did fully charge the battery the first time, another issue is recharging after EVERY use vs charging when completely drained. Battery will develop memory (although the manf. will say other wise). If you charge after every use and have only used a third of the charge, after a few time of doing this, you will notice that the battery will not last as long. Try one more battery in just one raido. Fully charge it the first time and only recharge when COMPLETLY drained. If the battery is still not holding a charge, it is most likly a short in the radio itself. Return it.

HEllo, I have a Motorola Radius CP200. When I


If the sound is continuous, like a long tone humming, it is possible you are on a channel which is not programmed. Try changing your channel knob to a different channel and see if the sound changes.

If the sound is not continous, and only happens upon pressing a button, we are not certain what you are experiencing without seeing the radio first hand.

If it were the battery you would get a low battery beep and then the radio would shut itself down. This can happen from a bad battery or a low battery. If this were the situation, you should check your charger and be certain the light comes on and stays on when the radio is placed on the charger. (Note: your radio should always be turned off when on the charger.) A quick test would be to swap the battery with a known good radio and see if you have the same problem. If so, you know it is not a battery or charging problem.

If none of these items help, send or bring the radio to a Motorola repair shop for a quick analysis.

Best regards.

ONE OF MY CP200 RADIOS HAS A STEADY SQUELCH SOUND ON ALL 4 CHANNELS, HOW CAN I FIX THIS?


One possible problem is a bad battery. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit and see if the problem is solved. If it is not the battery, then your radio is likely in need of repair.
