If it isn't the batteries then throw it away. These radios are not meant to be repaired. You can buy a new one for far less that you could have it repaired. That's China for ya.

Problem no squelch noise or speaker like its muted, but can hear weather ok shows receiving and ant ok


Since the radio cannot transmit on Weather bands, there is no need for the radio to detect if it is transmitting when receiving weather.
In CB mode (on CB channels) the radio will mute when transmitting. So... a guess is that it is muting, or transmitting all the time in CB mode. Check for a mic problem by removing the Mic from the radio ... if it receives CB with no mic connected, then there is an issue with the mic. Otherwise, unless the unit is in PA mode (public address mode) it is likely something internal and beyond the scope of this service.

Every time I press the talk button the radios show low battery icon and I'm not able to transmit on either radio. How can I rectify this problem?


Hi,

Are you SURE that your batteries are up to snuff? I.E. when they have a light current load on them they are ok but as soon as you try to increase that current load they die off quickly. With two-way radios, the actual current drain depends on whether you are transmitting or in standby (receive) mode. Transmitting requires significantly more current than standby mode. So, I would look at what kind of batteries you are using. If they are a good name brand alkaline, check to see if they measure close to 1.5 volts with a voltmeter or check them with a battery tester to ensure they are good. If they are ni-cad or ni-mh rechargeable batteries, make sure they are rated at least 1200 mah (milliamp hour). I use Sanyo eneloop rechargeable batteries. They last a long time for me. One other thing, make sure your battery compartment is clean and there is no corrosion on the contacts the batteries are placed into.

Hope this helps,
Jim

Motorola XTR 446 talkie walkie is not receiving


Try programming the radios without an eliminator code and see if they work together then. If so, there is something wrong with the eliminator code portion of the radio. Also, check your batteries, switch batteries between the units and see if the problem moves to the other unit. It takes more energy to transmit than receive, so a bad or very weak battery could exhibit a similar problem. The radio icon will illuminate whenever a radio is transmitting or receiving. When the radio is in standby mode, the icon should not be shown. Your radio with the icon on all the time may be stuck in transmit. Check your PTT button to see if it is slightly stuck or depressed. Here's a link to the user guide http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/XTR446/Static%20Files/XTR%20Manual%20EU.pdf?localeId=103

Best regards.

  • As per the above there are error on Transmitting the packet and also for receiving the acknowledge packet.
  • Please check whether any disturbance in the link
  • Each PPP packet has a checksum attached to ensure that the data being received is the data being sent. If the FCS of an incoming packet is incorrect, the packet is dropped and the HDLC FCS count is increased.
  • Another reason for seeing too many FCS errors may be that the remote end has stopped talking PPP.

CA12CD Plantronics will not transmit on Centracom Series 2 consol


The headset you bought will work with the Centracom Gold Elite but the older Series II may not work. Have you tried Plantronics assistance. They are very helpful and will support the product.

Won't transmit


First I would check the interference code on both radios to see if it is set the same. It is possible you have one set to zero and the other set to another number. This would cause the problem you describe. The interference eliminator is designed to block out transmissions from radios whose settings do not match it.

If all your settings are identical, and you have only 2 radios, it is not possible to tell which one has the problem. You either have one with no transmit or one with no receive. The only way to tell which you have is to get a 3rd radio involved, set to the same settings.
