One of the motorola radios has a lowgrade constant noise when the other is transmitting, I can hear transmissions from the other but cannot transmit

It is possibly a bad or very low battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. So typically when you have a failing battery you will experience no transmit, but receive is okay. Constant, or low grade static is also a sign of a bad battery. Simple test to see if it is the battery, swap the batteries between the two radios and see if the problem moves to the other radio.

Best regards.

How can I stop a constant frying sound from one of my FV200 Motorola Radio

You could have a bad battery, bad speaker or corrosion damage to the component board. The only one of these which you could correct would be the battery. Try placing a known good battery pack in the radio and see if it corrects the problem. If so, replace the battery pack, if not, retire the radio.

Best regards.

When I press the push to talk button on my Motorola talkabout 250 there is a constant beeping noise and I cannot transmit

Generally a constant beep is the sign of a low or bad battery. However, it is noted the TalkAbout 250 is operated with AA batteries, and it is likely you have considered this and changed batteries. You might check your battery contacts, and clean them with a pencil eraser to assure they are making good connection. Otherwise, you may have a failing radio.

Best regards.

It turns on but keeps beeping

The constant beep means that the channel you are on is not programmed. Try moving the channel knob to other channels. If it stops beeping, you are on a channel that is programmed. It is possible that none of the channels are programmed though.

Take it to a motorola dealer and they can program it for you.

Constant noise, no squelch, not receiving signal

What you are describing is sometimes called motorboating, and typically indicates the radio needs repair. Without hearing the sound we cannot be certain of your radio's issue. There is also a slight chance you have a battery problem (as in a bad or defective battery). Try a known-good battery on the radio and see if the problem goes away. You might consider contacting the seller to see if they will assist you.

Best regards.

Constant static

You have one of three issues: 1) You are close to another device transmitting on your frequency, 2) Your radio has a problem and needs service, or 3) You have a low, bad or defective battery.

What you can do:
--Try the radio at a different location to see if the problem is only at a certain location. This will tell you if it is simply interference by another device.
-- Check your antenna for damage, replace if necessary.
--Try the radio with another known good battery and see if the problem goes away.
--If you don't have another battery, try turning it on when in the charging cradle. (NOTE: Do not press the PTT while the radio is on the charger. This can damage your radio. The radio should always be turned off when charging, unless running a simple test such as this one.)

If these do not solve the problem, your radio needs serviced.

Unprogrammed channels will have a constant tone. It is possible your radio is unprogrammed. A dead battery tone is only for a moment, and is usually a medium tone then a low tone, sounding somewhat like beeedeeep.

Motorola mtx 8000 radio

Yes. That is a strong possiblity. Many models of Motorola will emit a tone when not programmed, or by placing the channel selector on an unprogrammed channel.

Constant tone on an HT1000

You will get a constant tone on any channel that isn't programmed. it sounds like the previous user ha a freq programmed on channel 1. Channel 11 is strange, but possible. Usually guys program these radios in order.... they don't put 2 freqs in soo far apart from each other..... I would expect channel 1 AND 2 to have freq programmed in them.... but channel 1 an channel 11 is strange... but possible. Anytime you don't fill up all the channels on these radios (commercial radios in general) you will get a constant tone on the channels that don't have anything programmed in them. Program the radio and your good to go. If you don't program freqs into al the available channels, expect to hear that "constant tone" on any unprogrammed channels. The channels that you hear a tone on do not have a freq programmed into it. Its normal. Good luck
