I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

Can I turn off the beep on the cxt195?


You mean the "roger beep"? You can try the steps below from this site>>http://science.opposingviews.com/turn-roger-beep-off-motorola-walkie-talkie-10001.html
Step 1
Turn the Motorola Talkabout two-way radio on by pressing the "Power" button.
Step 2
Hold down the "Menu" button for several seconds until an icon appears on the screen. "On/Off" begins to flash on the screen.
Step 3
Press the "Minus" button to turn the "Roger" beep off. If you want to turn it back on, press the "Plus" button.
Step 4
Tap the "PTT" button to save the change. You may also press "Menu" to save the change and completely exit Menu mode

Hope it helps...

I have a Motorola Talkabout from 1998 that has a talk button, a monitor button, and a power button. Whenever I press the talk button it just says the channel....but when I talk through my other walkie...


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).

Radio keeps beeping when I turn it on? I confirmed its not because of a low battery but something else.


A few thoughts:
If it is a long continuous beep this can be an indication of having the channel select set to a channel which is not programmed.

If it is a beep that only occurs when you press the PTT button, similar to the low battery beep, it could be a battery, battery contact, or internal battery contact issue. Clean battery contacts between radio and battery, as well as external contacts, with a pencil eraser to assure a good connection.

If it is a beep that occurs periodically when pressing the PTT button, it is possible your radio is programmed with busy-channel-lock-out (talk prohibit tone), which would not allow you to transmit on a frequency which is already in use.

Best regards.

I ptt and it immediatley 'roger beeps'


Beeping when you press the PTT button usually indicates a bad or weak battery. Check your batteries and charger. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser.

If you feel this is not the problem, then you have a radio problem. These radios are non-repairable, as parts and schematics were never released for them.

Best regards.

When I press PTT the walkie talkie turns off

The battery is fully charged on the walkie talkies and all are on the same channel, however out of 12 walkie talkies only 2 will work. When ever you push the push to talk button the walkie talkie shuts...


Your batteries are either no good, or not charged. When you press the PTT button it takes more energy than being in standby mode. If you have a battery problem it will fail quickly when the PTT is pressed.

Rechargeable batteries last approx. 18-24 months. Check your battery for a 3-digit date code. It is usually a 3 digit number followed by a couple of letters. The numbers tell the date of manufacture. The first number is the year, followed by the week of the year. 025 would be 2010 the 25th week. (or if very old it could be 2000 the 25th week.)

If you feel age is not a problem, you might check your charger(s) to see they are fully powered, and clear of debris on the contacts (and the radio contacts as well). Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.

A few tips: Be certain when placing your radios on the charge they are turned off. Check your wall outlet to be certain it doesn't get shut off with a light switch. Expect to replace your batteries every 2-3 years.

Best regards.
