Question about Motorola Walkie Talkie 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Two sets of Motorola Walki Talki radios will not communicate.

I had a set of Motorola walki talkis (Ref. #1) Model #MC223R that I purchased about two years ago and needed another set so I just purchased a second set (Ref. #2) Model #MD203R. #2 can receive transmissions from #1 but #1 cannot receive transmissions from #2. Both are set on the same channel. Are the set defective? Why?

In addition to the channel and privacy codes, some Motorola two-way radios have a feature called Eavesdrop Reducer where you have 3 scramble settings available; perhaps you have this set on one of sets of radios but not the other. It should be something like that because otherwise there is no reason that by setting the radios to the same channel and privacy code they wouldn't be able to send/receive to each other.

SOURCE: T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!

Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'

From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.

You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.

You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.

It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.

SOURCE: Does not receive FM signals anymore, just noise.

The T6310 is a disposable radio. Assuming the programming is correct, and matching on each of your radios, and you are using good batteries, there is nothing which can be done to correct the problem. We would however, suggest you double check your programming, and also the age of your batteries.

Sidenote: Rechargeable batteries only last 18-24 months before they begin to fail. Signs of failure can include, but are not limited to, poor transmit, intermittent transmit, white noise, squelching sounds. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so your transmit would be the first to go.

Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

This unit does not have a reset button. While troubleshooting you might check the batteries. Be certain they are in correctly and the contacts are free of corrosion. You can use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Walk through all the programming instructions in the manual, double checking both the frequency and interference eliminator codes. A quick setting back to zero on the code would alleviate any problem with that section of the radio.

As far as your "paging" this operates on the same frequency and code as the rest of the radio. If the radios are not working correctly in this relm, the paging will not work either.

SOURCE: channel will not set just continues to scan.

Your radio is in scan mode. You can shut off scan by referring to page 8 in the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T4500_User_Manual_E.pdf

Your radio has 22 channels. Channels 1-7 and 15-22 are 1 watt. Channels 8-14 are


0.5 watt. When the radio is on a 1 watt channel, displays. When the radio is on

1. With the radio on, press . The current channel flashes.


2. Press or to set the channel.

Both walkie talkies are on the same channel, but will not transmit voice messages


Check your Code setting. Both the frequency and the code must be identical for the units to communicate. Shut off any special features and keep the radios at a simple setting until you get communications back.

Check your programming. It is possible one of them has a different PL (aka code or interference eliminator code) than the others. Here is a link to the user guide page where you can select your model from the pulldown. http://shop.giantintl.com/Manuals.asp Look at the section about programming and turn off any special features, taking your radio back to a very basic mode, matching all setting between the radios. This should make your radios communication easily together. If not, you may have one bad radio in the mix.

Best regards.

I have a motorola cp 110 walki talkie .red light comes on but no beep or commuunication


If you have no initialization beep when you turn the radio on, it is likely the radio is in need of repair. Immediate things which come to mind are a sticking PTT button, something stuck in audio accessory jack, or a bad speaker. You might check the radio using a second radio and see if you can transmit.

best regards.
