Alkaline tray for CP200?

Is there a Alkaline tray for the CP200's? I have a few of these and don't use them too often so I don't want to put them in chargers all the time. Thus the use of a alkaline tray to use AA or AAA batteries. Any help would be great! Thanks

You may have one of the following issues:

1) Programming of special features is inhibiting communications. Reprogram the radio(s) back to a basic mode with the special features, code and Qt filter (if any) turned off (zero). Then check to see if communications improves.

2) You could have a Transmit problem with the other radio. This could be caused by a bad or low battery or even a sticking PTT. Try trading the batteries with a known good radio and see if the problem changes or moves to the other radio.

3) Your radio could be failing. If you have changed the batteries to known good batteries, and tested the radio with more than one other radio, and you do not have a programming problem, you likely have a radio which is failing.

SOURCE: cannot connect between my two t5920 radio sets?

No, the battery will not have an effect on whether the two radios talk to one another, unless the battery is bad or dead.

Check your programming to be certain your Frequency, Interference Eliminator Code, and Qt Filter if any are set the same between the two radios. For basic operation shut off the Code and Filter (set to zero).

Here is a link to the user guide: Programming begins on page 16.

Best regards.

mr. Layne Johnson
I have a pair of motorola talkabout model MS560CR.
Probably the battery system is the same.
I can charge AA ni-mh RECHARGEABLE batteries into the radio with the charger supplied with the radios.
But, you need to make a special arrangement of batteries.
It don't nedds soldering or welding.
Only scotch tape and a small piece of aluminum paper.
The life of the batteries (in standby) is 24 hrs (for 2000 mah) instead of 10 hrs with the original pack.
If you are yet interested, tell me and I can send you pictures of that.

How can I program my rdu2080d to communicate with my cp200

Both radios require appropriate programming software and cables. Your CP200 would need to be a UHF model in order to match the CP200. Your best option would be visit your local dealer or contact an online repair center for help in programming.

Motorola radius cp200

Not any recalls on this product. However, here are a few tips which may help:
1) There are 4 types of CP200 batteries: Li-Ion, Li-Ion Slim, NiMH, and NiCD. Due to the differing thicknesses Motorola provides an insert which can be turned around to accommodate the battery (or batteries) you have with your radio. When you look at the charger you will see two plastic ears sticking up beyond the charge cup. When you squeeze these ears toward one another you can lift the insert up and out of the charger. Turn the insert around according to which battery thickness you have. Then snap the insert back into the charging base. Your battery should rest and depress the spring loaded charge contacts in the base.
2) The insert has rails which guide the battery into place. You can see on your battery sides there are grooves which match the shape of the rails. In the beginning when all parts are new you must be very purposeful to slide the battery into place, but as the battery and charger begin to have more use you will find it easier to slide.
3) The CP200 charger can accommodate a radio with a battery on it, or a battery alone. (Tip: Always be certain the radio is turned off while on the charger.)
4) The only issue we have every seen customers experience with the CP200 charger is from rough handling. An internal plastic piece which holds the charge contacts in place can be broken if users are very rough when putting the radio in the charger. This is rare, but is known to happen.
Hope this helps.
Best regards.

If your CP200 has a model number beginning with AAH50R it can be programmed to match the RDU2080d. If your CP200 model number begins with AAH50K, then the answer is no.

The letter R in the model number indicates it is UHF, and on the RDU2080d, the letter U in the model name indicates it is UHF. Both of these radios are programmable, and could be reprogrammed to match one another, if both UHF.

Yes, alkaline batteries will work fine. You might want to consider lithiums instead, however. They cost more but last longer, so you won't need to carry as many.

Need battery tray for motorola dps radio

[This is not a solution, but a commentary on the need for a tray. Please do not rate this post, as it is meant for informational purposes only.]

This is more common that you might think. The battery trays (both 6-AA Alkaline and NiCd rechargeable-style) have not been available for a few years from Motorola. From a nationwide repair center perspective, we find some damaged trays can be repaired, and some owners find a "parts radio" from sources such as ebay.

For those of you reading this posting which have the TalkAbout Distance or Distance DPS, let this please be a reminder to take care of your trays. Once the tray is gone, the radio is not functional, nor can it be repaired.

Best wishes on your search and please post back if you do find one.

Best regards.
