Try swapping the battery packs and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, you have a bad or poorly charged battery. If the same radio does not work with a different battery pack, then you have a radio problem.

Best regards.

Transister rsdio won't turn on or off


Very likely bad batteries in the handhelds. Make certain they have been charged fully and try again. If not, get new batteries. Batteries go bad even not used, sitting in a box or on a shelf. 1999 are likely nicad chemistry and without a professional battery conditioner, I doubt they will take a charge. You could try to charge and dis charge them your self 10-12 times. Sometimes this will work. Fully charge the battery, put in the radio and turn it on until the radio beeps. Do not let it go dead overnight or you make the problem worse.

My motorola sp50 will not turn on


It is possible you have a bad volume pot (potentiometer). You might try turning on the radio slightly differently, such as turning the volume up 1/2 way or all the way. Sometimes these just develop a dead spot. Also, you might check the battery contacts in the radio. These can be cleaned with a pencil eraser, and so can the contacts on the battery itself. Be sure the contacts are resting properly against the contacts on the battery. While there are a variety of reasons a radio might not turn on with a fully charged battery these are the most common.

Best regards.

Changed the battery in my 2-Way Radio CLS1110 and it will turn on but when you push talk it goes off


The battery is bad or not charged. Check your charger and charger/battery connection. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser and try charging again. With a new battery it may take up to 3 charge cycles to fully charge your 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.

Hold the power button down for a few seconds until it turns on. The power button has a symbol that looks like a circle with a line in the middle.

Will the light turn green on the ht1000 charger when the battery is charged? how long does it take?


It depends on the type of charger, a rapid-charger would charge a battery in one hour or less and the green light would come on when battery fully charged. A slow charger will take up to 16 hours to charge a battery and has red light only.

We can hear but can not be heard on one of the two radios. They are both fully charged and on the same channel.


Check your interference eliminator code and Qt filter (if any) to see if they match. For basic operation turn both of these features off (zero). Best regards.

Dangers of a Motorola being left on when charging in a multilpe


Don't know if you'd call it dangerous, but wisedom would be not to leave a radio turned on while on the charger. 1) Shortened battery life due to short charging. The battery will never be fully charged due to powering the radio. 2) Inadvertently pressing the PTT button while the radio on the charger can/will burn out components in the radio including the PA (final amp) which is a costly repair.

Instead of leaving the radio turned on while on the charger, buy a second battery to keep on the charger. Then you only need to swap batteries. Your radio would be able to remain on, and never be on the charger.

Shuts for no reason


Check the battery first..... alot of times a person will put a battery in a chager and let it sit. They will think the battery is fully charged but it may not be... In those battery packs there are a bunch of smaller batteries all tied together. Alot of times these commercial raios will run off of around 7 volts ( check the battery). The battery will only charge up to 7 volts if all the cells inside the battery are good. What I'm saying is for you to charge the battery up fully..... check the voltage listed on the battery then use a volt meter to check the voltage after the battery is fully charged. When a battery has just finished being charged usually it will be overcharged.... a 7.5 volt battery will be up around 8.5 volts for example. So check the battery right after its charged... expect it to be overcharged. If it seems OK, put it in the raio and key the radio for a bit to try and use up some battery power.... then check it again and see if it has dropped drastically. Your problem has to do with power... the first link in the power chain is the battery... check that out... then go to where the battery makes contact with the radio and make sure thats good.... inside the radio there will be a fuse but if thats blown you will get nothing... then the power goes to the switch. Battery... contacts...fuse... switch... that how the power initially gets into the radio. Most of these problems are battery related so I would check that first. If the battery does not have enough power when you transmit with the radio the radio will shut down.... turn off. If its not getting enough current the voltage will drop and once it gets low the radio shuts off. Usually with commercial stuff you will hear a "beep" when this happens. Your problem might be power related... theres alot you can check.
