Question about Motorola Walkie Talkie 2-Way Radio

Can get headset to work right

I have Motorola Talkabout Radio HH230TPR and purchased the Motorola 56320 Headset.If I have the radio off when I plug my headset in and then turn it on it is on the VOX mode but my mic voice activates. If I plug my headset in after the radio is on it doesn't go to the VOX setting but it will start to squeal about 30 seconds late. I want to be able to use my headset but not have it voice activated. There is no mic button to push on the headset but it doesn't bother me to push the pitt button on the radio which is clipped on my belt when I talk

Check your radios settings, this should be available in a menu on the radio... the user manual does not show a setting for non vox operation of the head set, (as this maybe a version difference it may be available in the menu) so if it is not available in the menu with the rest of the settings it is not an option.

    I was messing with it more after I posted this because I know I had it working right at one time. I was through the menu several times but didn't see anything. All it told me in the manual was to shut the radio off, plug in the head set then turn it on. You will see the VOX on the screen and you are good to go.That's fine if you want to voice activate which I don't because I'm a supervisor at work and sometimes I don't want all things being broadcasted. I tried keeping the boom pulled down by my should instead of by my mouth and also messed with different sensitivity settings. None of that worked. What finally fixed it (which I found by accident, it wasn't in the manual) was when you shut the radio off, plug your head set in, turn it on. You will see the VOX so then push your PITT button and the VOX will go off.Now my boom is ONLY activated when I push the PITT button on my radio which is on my belt but I can hear everything through the earpiece at all times.

SOURCE: i cant turn the vox off of the radio. i plug in

Only plug the headset in with the radio turned off, and be certain to use a headset designed for the radio. On the SX model radios the VOX or iVOX feature is automatically set to the last sensitivity setting when you plug in an audio device. Here is a link to the user guide, where you can read how to turn iVOX and/or VOX on or off.

Issue using headset with motorola talkabout md200


You may have one of the following issues:
1) Defective headset or non-compatible headset. Try the headset on the other radio to see if you experience the same problem.
2) Headset is not plugged in all the way, until you feel a click.
3) Your radio's jack is wobbled out, or defective. Try moving the plug in or out slightly in the jack to see if you can find a sweet spot. Jacks can be worn due to plugging and unplugging chargers or audio devices repeatedly.

Tips:
1) Just as you have been doing, make certain the radios are turned off before plugging in any audio device.
2) Once you plug in the device and turn on the radio, press the PTT button once to initialize the PTT capability.
3) If you continue to have difficulties, reprogram the radios back to a basic operation, shutting off any special features such as call tones, Qt filtering, interference eliminators, weather radio capabilities, etc. Sometimes going back to this basic mode will alleviate the problem. Then one by one you can add back in the features you desire.

Hope some of this helps. Best regards.

Motorola talkabout MR350 headset only sends audio and can not recieve


Likely not compatible. One thing to try is to make certain the transmitting unit is turned OFF when you initially plug in the headset. Sometimes if a headset is plugged into a radio when it is already ON, the headset will appear to be in VOX (voice activated) mode and will not allow the user to receive. Also, if this headset has an inline PTT, it may not be compatible with the radio and you would need to use the PTT on the radio.

If this doesn't work, you would need to use the TalkAbout headset designed for the MR350.

Best regards.

Need headsets for the T 5530 Talkabout radios


  • Motorola two way radios were pretty standard across the board with their accessories and chargers. If it worked in one it was pretty much guaranteed to work in a different model one. This link here http://www.ewingenter.com/accessories.htm is a great place to get aftermarket Motorola two way radio accessories. You have your choice of several types or headset/mic combos on there.

Hi I have the T5622 talkabout with a PTT headset. I can transmit OK but I am not receiving anything other than a ''click'' when the other person transmits. I have tested the headset and I am able to recive...


Here a few thoughts which come to mind.
1. You do not mention whether the radios communicate with the headset no on the radio. I will at this point, assume they do.
2. Be certain to have the radio SHUT OFF when plugging in the audio device.
3. Check your VOX settings. It could be your radio is going into VOX mode.
4. Only use the PTT button on the headset. Do not press the PTT on the radio at any time while using the headset.
5. Check that you have CALL TONES shut off.
6. Lastly, if nothing else works, go back to a basic mode, and set both radios where there are no special features turned on. ie turn off CODE, Qt Filter, VOX, Call Tones, etc.

Wiring diagram for accessory plug needed.


I am looking for the same wiring diagram. The headset Moto sells is a single earpiece with microphone, so how does that end up being a stereo connection Neto? Just curious how, or is there also a full headset with microphone? ( I dont' know, just asking)

Would this be a 4 ring TRS connector? Sleeve = ground, then left, right, and the tip as the microphone??

1) Be certain the radio is shut off when plugging in the audio device.
2) On most units, press the PTT button to turn off the VOX feature.
3) If you are not planning to use VOX. Turn the VOX feature off. Follow the programming instructions which came with the radio.

Hope this helps.

Motorola T6310 Talkabout Sound only comes out of earphones


We have discussed your dilemma. Check your audio jack hole to be certain nothing is still in the hole. Check to see you have the VOX setting turned to a normal or off setting. Typically the radio will shut off the front speaker when an audio device is plugged into the jack. If the radio senses the device, or a small piece of the plug is stuck in the jack, or the jack is damaged, it will shut off the front speaker.

Since you can hear when using the headphone, it is apparent you have the radios programmed to the same frequency and code settings. This leads us to believe it is not a programming issue, short of the VOX feature, or mic gain. You might double check these settings.

Using headset jack - unit always transmits


Try plugging in headset BEFORE turning on radio. You should see the word VOX (not iVOX) on your display. At least this is what works for me.
