Question about GE SmartHome (58173) 2-Way Radio
I have to apologize beforehand because I am clueless with this stuff. Here's the situation: We have a set of GE 2-way radios and they were working just fine. Then, we turned them on and they worked for about three minutes, we talked maybe twice, then the 1st radio began emitting a loud tone whenever the person on the 2nd radio pushed the button to talk. The 2nd radio works fine and can receive voice from the 1st radio. And, the 1st radio can transmit voice to the 2nd radio. But, you just cannot hear anything on the 1st radio but this loud tone when you push the talk button. I've tried changing the batteries and it didn't make any difference and I can't find the instructions that came with the radios. So I'm hoping someone out there can tell me if this is a fixable problem and what we can do. Please help? Thank you for reading my post.
You may have a defective radio that has a bad push to talk switch which doesn't mute the receiver and feeds back audio to itself or this could be a bad solder connection or a broken wire inside.
Not much you can do except replace it or have a tech look at it.
