A few thoughts:
If it is a long continuous beep this can be an indication of having the channel select set to a channel which is not programmed.

If it is a beep that only occurs when you press the PTT button, similar to the low battery beep, it could be a battery, battery contact, or internal battery contact issue. Clean battery contacts between radio and battery, as well as external contacts, with a pencil eraser to assure a good connection.

If it is a beep that occurs periodically when pressing the PTT button, it is possible your radio is programmed with busy-channel-lock-out (talk prohibit tone), which would not allow you to transmit on a frequency which is already in use.

Best regards.

One of my walky talkys(motorola T4500) makes an extra beeping noise whenever i turn it on. This noise also shortens up what people are saying before they finish talking. How do I fix that?


What you might be experiencing is the Talk Confirmation Tone aka Roger Beep. I have looked through the T4500 manual and do not see any instructions for turning it off, just that it is listed as a feature. However, something you might try is holding in the + (plus) button while turning on the radio and see if it disables the feature. This method is used on many of the other TalkAbout models.

If it is not the Roger Beep, it could be a low battery beep. But from your explanation it sounds more like a Roger Beep.

To turn the tlk confirmation tone off... it does not work holding the - sign and turning it on now what?


Just read your message a second time. Is the sound following the release of the PTT button? If so, it is indeed the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone). If holding in the minus button while turning the radio on does not turn it off, there might be something wrong with the radio, such as a one of the other buttons being slighty stuck. Or you have your keypad locked. To unlock the keypad hold the menu button in for 3 seconds until the lock icon disappears.

Another thing which will make a noise during or after transmitting is the low battery beep. You might check your batteries. Old, bad, poorly charged or defective batteries can cause this.

fyi: Some users might think the Call Tones are the Roger Beep.

Lastly, there is a PTT Timeout beep which will occur if you hold the PTT in for more than 60 sec while talking.

Hope one of these items is of help to you.

HT1000. The low battery indacator beeps every 5 min with a fully charged battery.


With a fully charged battery and assuming that the battery is good. You need to check on/off switch, I often found the switch doesn't completly close and therefore, one side of switch is B+ but on other side the voltage is low that why low battery indicator keep beeping. Do that and see if it fix.
Good luck!

My clock AJ 3010 clock radio gives off an electronic sound every 10 to 20 minutes. It's like a warning sound you get from a smoke alarm when a battery is running low. I've tried replacing the batteries but...


If you want to turn off all system beeps (like the ones that go through your computers' internal speaker ):

  1. Go to Start-->Run-->Type Regedit.
  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
  3. Edit the key Beep and give it a value of No
This will help you to turn off system beeps.

Motorola gp-68 low battery beeps comes on too soon


I'm not sure that you can manually reset the low voltage threshold on your radio. Most of Motorola radio use programming software to turn on/off low battery beep and many other features. Everything is done by software.

Motorola CP200, radio just beeps when im pressing any button.


It is possible your radio is not programmed, or has a bad/old battery.

It is normal for the side buttons 1 and 2 to beep when depressed to indicate you turned the feature on/off. Each of these buttons has the ability to be programmed a long and a short press feature.

If your radio beeps when your press the PTT button, on any or all channels, it indicates a low or nearly dead battery. Check your battery date code to see if the battery needs replaced.

If your radio emits a long tone on a channel, that channel is not programmed to function.

If your radio beeps a single beep when you turn it on, this is normal.

Charge your radio completely overnight, with the radio turned off. See if this solves the problem. If not, try a new/different battery to see if it will solve the issue. If not, drop by your local dealer and let them look at the unit.

How do you go to silent mode?


There are two different kinds of beeps you can control, the "roger" beep and the "button" beeps. Below is an excerpt from the owners manual explaining the simple procedure.

“Roger” Beeps/Talk Confirmation Tone
When you turn this feature On, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when
you finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know
you have finished talking. If the person you are talking to does not hear the talk
confirmation tone, you can enable it by pressing and holding + (plus) as you turn On
your radio. Now, whenever you release the PTT, you let your friends know you have
finished talking by transmitting a “Roger” Beep tone. “Roger” Beeps will be
disabled as the Default Setting.
Note: To toggle the Talk Confirmation Tone feature, turn your radio Off and then
back On while pressing and holding + (plus) .

Button Beeps
Every time you press a button on the front of your radio, it beeps unless you turn
Button Beeps Off. To turn Button Beeps Off, turn your radio On while you press - (minus) and
hold . To turn Button Beeps back On, turn the radio Off and then back On again
while you press and hold the - (minus) . On is the Default setting.

Strange sound coming from walkie talkie, strange beeping


Most Motorola radios give a beep-beep when the batteries are low and need changing. Make sure to use a good brand of battery. One other thing to check for is leaking batteries, the crud with cut down on performance.

Kenwood TK370N UHF FM HANDHELD RADIO


By keeping the PTT button pushed, if you get a rapid beep and the red led is blinking, sounds like a bad battery. Batt voltage is a nominal 7.5v. anything lower than 6.25v and the low battery beep starts. A rapid beep, and no red led blinking, an error in the transmit freq.
