Question about Motorola Talkabout T6500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Open Question

I have two T6500 walkie talkies that have worked well for several years, suddenly neither can transmit. When PTT is held, nothing happens on either handset. we get random transmissions/static so it seems to be something with the PTT feature.

This one should be a very close match. The T4508 is a foreign version of the T4500.

SOURCE: motorola t5720 walkie talkie not transmitting or receiving

To answer your questions: the airport xray should not have harmed them, and there is no reset button.

If you are using the radios with the rechargeable battery pack, it most likely needs replaced. They have a life expectancy of 12-18 months. Here is a link to the Motorola store: http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola;jsessionid=B7997F21F6A409F029D6DEC2CB194ADB.mot2?cmd=catDisplayStyle&entryPoint=adirect&catKey=601560&messageType=catDisplayStyle Clean your battery contacts both in the radio and on the battery with a pencil eraser.

There is also a chance the radios are not programmed correctly. Be certain the frequency, interference code eliminator and the Qt filter (if any) are set identical to one another. You indicate you have a manual, I will insert a link here for those who do not, who might read this: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Lastly, you may simply have one radio which has failed. It is not likely both would fail at the same time, short of battery issues. The three items listed above are suspect: batteries, programming or one has failed.

Best regards.

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.

My uniden walkie talkie has the RX button stuck on the screen i can talk to the other person but it always makes a screeching noise


Hi Laura,

When you see the Rx sign on the screen, it indicates that someone else is transmitting (Tx) on the channel, this is also caused by "BOOF HEADS" who like doing nothing more than dropping carriers by holding down their PTT button during a conversation, something that happens a lot on CB and without a doubt on FRS radios.

There is no problem in your radio, it's Just someone else probably dropping a carrier as per above.

Not much can be done about this problem, No License, No Joy.

The fact you can hear the other person over the screach indicates to me that I am right, and your radio is fine.

I hope this clears up your query.

Warm Regards,
Peter

Motorola XTR 446 talkie walkie is not receiving


Try programming the radios without an eliminator code and see if they work together then. If so, there is something wrong with the eliminator code portion of the radio. Also, check your batteries, switch batteries between the units and see if the problem moves to the other unit. It takes more energy to transmit than receive, so a bad or very weak battery could exhibit a similar problem. The radio icon will illuminate whenever a radio is transmitting or receiving. When the radio is in standby mode, the icon should not be shown. Your radio with the icon on all the time may be stuck in transmit. Check your PTT button to see if it is slightly stuck or depressed. Here's a link to the user guide http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/XTR446/Static%20Files/XTR%20Manual%20EU.pdf?localeId=103

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.

Motorola T6500 grandson lost the directions / manual; products charged but I do not know how to operate these


  • Hi, I can help.

  • You can download the manual for a Motorola T6500 here http://www.mediafire.com/?exz5py8jp1izit7 and when you get there click on "Click here to start download from MediaFire.." and the manual will download onto your PC.

  • As for how to use it you have a round knob on top that turns it on and provided the radio are on the same channel they should work.
  • The push button on the side is the PTT or Push To Talk.
  • You will get about two good miles out of them.
  • There is a place on the side towards the top for a special ear phone / mic to plug into.
  • Those are the basics of your hand held radios. If you have any other questions or comments you can feel free to leave them here and I will respond. The manual covers it all to.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

When I place the walkie talkie in the charger base, the light indicator does not come on. I've put new batteries in the walkie talkies. Also, on another walkie talkie, it constantly shuts off when I...


Generally when a radio shuts off when you press the PTT button it is a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. The fact you have a charge which the light does not come on indicates you have a bad charger or bad connection between the radio and/or battery and the charger. Clean your battery contacts (on both radio and charger) with a pencil eraser and see if it clears up the problem. If not, you have either a battery or charger problem.

Best regards.

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.
