It seems a small hardware-problem, like a button is sticking, making a continues connection. If you are comfortable in hardware-modifications, try to open the casing of the malfunctioning walkie talkie. Do this carefully, not to damage it further.
When opened, check the 3 buttons to see any damage, or undesired connections (caused by extensive use or plain dirt).

You will find the manual here. The radio is part of the 280 series radios, so there is a general manual on all in that series.

Hello Bo Duke,

If one radio won't walk to the other my guess if that you have the Privacy Code function set up incorrectly.

The privacy code function mutes the radio unless it receives a signal from another radio transmitting the same privacy code. If Privacy Codes are turned on for Radio A but not turned on for Radio B then you will be able to transmit from Radio A to Radio B but not from Radio B to Radio A. If Privacy Codes are turned on for both radios but each unit is set to a different code then neither radio will be able to talk to the other.

Make sure that the radios are both set to the same privacy code or that the privacy code function is turned off on both radios. You can find more information on how this function is set in the radio's Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps!

I believe you do not need to hold the monitor button when changing channels
Push the talk button till you have the channel you want then push monitor button to accept
Hope this works

Some number their channels differently, but all FRS/GMRS radios operate in the same mode and will have at least some frequencies in common. Check the channel/frequency lists for both radios and you'll be able to talk to each other.

How to use the motorola talkabout 101


The Talkabout 101 is a very basic walkietalkie radio. With good batteries installed in the battery compartment, you should be able to turn the radio on, and simply press the front-center push-to-talk (PTT) button and speak. Release the button after speaking so the other person can do the same to talk back to you.

If you are having trouble opening the battery compartment, pull down on the black u-shaped sides and the back portion of the radio will slide down with the u-shaped sides to reveal the compartment. (This would be one of the most common questions asked on this style radio.)

Best regards.

Why does my motorola talkabout turns off when I try to radio someone


That's what they call the roger beep It is there so that you wont say roger every time to signal the other side's turn to talk.

You can press MENU button, press once more until you can see the music(note) icon or the word 'Roger'. Select ON or OFF using UP/DOWN key. Press MENU to save.

Perhaps the privacy code has been changed on one of the radios? If you have a manual follow the instructions for setting the codes and make sure they are the same on both radios.

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.
