Question about Motorola CLS 1410 (4 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Radio beeps after you release push to talk

I have a Motorola CLS 1410 that emits a rather loud beep after you release the Push to Talk button. It doesn't matter if you are using headphone mic or just using normally. The others I have do not make this noise and I have had no success in finding a cause or solution to this. Any ideas?

Might be a low battery warning. Try swapping battery.

SOURCE: Push to talk problem


If indeed radio #1 has a mic problem, this may be confirmed by trying an external speaker/microphone plugged into the accessory jack. If still a no, then its not the mic but possibly the modulator circuitry. If there is transmit audio with the external mic and hence internal mic is defective, the unit would have to be pried open and the defective component replaced. The internal mic is normally an electrofet 2-3 terminal soldered to a shielded wire and physically attached to the front plate.

Alternately, another possibility is that radio #2 has its Interference Eliminator Code enabled/activated. This is indicated by the presence of small sized digits on the top right of display. If this is the case and no similar digits are displayed in radio #1, then radio #2 will not allow any received transmission to be heard. Along the same line of reasoning, if the code is activated on both radios signified by the presence of the 2 small digits, and radio #1 has a problem with its CTCSS (code) generator, then it would also prevent reception of radio #2. A way to verify this is by deactivating/disabling the Interference Eliminator Codes on both radios.

On certain occasion, it is also possible that radio #2 has a defective speaker. You should be able to verify this by plugging in an external speaker to the accessory jack of radio #2.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The radio has possibly been damp or wet. Take the battery pack out of the radio and allow the radio to dry, or to speed the process try using a blow dryer on a low setting.

Check your programming and be certain your large and small numbers match one another when you get ready to try the radio again.

Here is a manual which most closely matches your radio type:

Beeping when pressing the PTT can be a sign of low or bad batteries. To check to see if this is the problem, move a battery from one of the working radios over into one of the problem radios and see if it solves the problem. It takes more energy to Transmit than to receive, so your radio may receive transmissions, but not be able to transmit. If this is the problem, replace your rechargeable NiMH battery packs. Charge the radio completely (always with the radio shut off. Batteries have an 18-24 month life expectancy.

If this does not solve the problem, check your chargers. Clean the battery contacts and charger contacts with a pencil eraser. Replace any non-working chargers.

Generally a constant beep is the sign of a low or bad battery. However, it is noted the TalkAbout 250 is operated with AA batteries, and it is likely you have considered this and changed batteries. You might check your battery contacts, and clean them with a pencil eraser to assure they are making good connection. Otherwise, you may have a failing radio.

Best regards.

Programming mode

Here is a link to the user guide:

A description of programming begins on page 28. The programming of this style unit can seem like you need a third hand to accomplish. Start with the radio turned OFF. Hold the PTT (push-to-talk) and the MON (monitor) buttons in while turning on the radio. Continue to hold both buttons in until the series of beeps stops. You are then in programming mode.

If you do not get the series of beeps, you may not have one of the buttons depressed. If after several attempts you do not get into programming mode, you may have a problem with one of the buttons, or a low/defective battery.

Best regards.

I setup my motorola cls1110 to the same frequency as my other 2-way radios. (Freq 6, Code 10). When I try to push to talk all I get is a beep, and it won't allow me to talk. What can I do to fix this...

A beep when pressing the PTT button could be a low or bad battery indicator. It takes more energy to transmit than to rest idly or receive. Try a known good battery in the radio and see if it corrects the problem.

If the battery is not the issue, then you may have a programming problem. Typically radios with a blank or unprogrammed channel will beep when placed on that channel. Try programming the radio to a different channel and see if the beep still occurs. If the beep occurs on many program settings you may have a deeper issue.

Can not change code and frequency

First, we would suggest resetting the radio to the factory default settings by turning the radio on while holding Push to Talk and Menu button for 3 seconds.

After doing this, check to see your radios function with one another. If they do, then proceed to programming the radio to the frequency/PL codes you are wanting. If the radios do not communicate after resetting them, one of the radios has a problem.

Here is a link to the user guide: You will find programming instructions on page 28, with a frequency chart located on page 26.

Best regards.
