Clear call model # FRS-85 not work properly

I have an issue with one of the 2 way radios. I can talk out of the radio but can't hear anyone talk back. When I turn on it first says 18 and then it would usually change to the current channel but is doesn't it displays the 1 ehre part of the 8 in 18 is but still displays 18. Also I put new batteries in and it keeps flashing battery low, I put the same batteries in another of the same make and it works without any problems

Hi,

There could be three (3) reasons why the display shows the battery icon at the top left side of the LCD display:
1. weak/undercharge/discharge batteries;
2. dirty/corroded/loose battery contacts/terminals; and/or
3. internal fault with the electronic sensing for battery level/state.

Corrective measures would require:
a. replace/recharge batteries. The rechargeable batteries need at least 12 hours of charging time;
b. clean, scrape, tighten (need to bend a little more towards the battery terminals) the spring/contacts of the battery holder;
c. (on the internal fault) your best bet might be to seek the services of a professional electronic technician since this would need familiarity with electronic components, their circuitry and diagnosis, perhaps a bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.

On the other hand, if the "low" is the "L" icon at the bottom right side of the display, this would indicate that the radio's transmit power setting (H/L - high/low). Transmit power level can only be changed in Channels 1-7 & 15-22. The radio will also auto change to lo power when batteries are weak.To switch to high power, press on the Menu button thrice or till "Pr" icon shows, press on the up/down to select H or L. To save & exit, momentary press the PTT.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: I get static after someone else talks

One of the main causes of static can be a bad battery. If you are using rechargeable batteries you need to replace them every 14-18 months. If you are using alkaline batteries, they have been known not to fully power the radio once your cross the 10 hour mark. Your radio would then be operating in somewhat of a brown out. This would lead to static.

Another cause of static is simply being nearly out of range of the other radio(s).

The burst of white noise at the end of Rx on some radios can be rather annoying. On the basic talkabout radios there is nothing which can be done to solve the problem, other than replacing the radio.

SOURCE: One radio not working

Hi it sounds to me that you have a fault in the microphone or the cable to the unit.check all the connections wiggle the mic cable and note any changes.
You say the mike button is frozen? try adrop of CRC in the press to talk switch-- only a drop or two, dont want it getting into the microphone it self.
Oh and have you got the batteries in the right way?

SOURCE: I cant talk to the other radio. the channels are both the same.

Here is a link to the EM1000 series user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/EM1000%20User%20Guide%2001-11-08.pdf

Check your frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) settings. For basic operations set the code and Qt filters to zero (off). Turn off any special features, and try the radios in just a basic mode.

Best regards.

Hello,
In short channels 1-7 and channels 15-22 are GMRS channels are not supposed to be operated by anyone that does not have a GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) license issued by the FCC. They automatically run on high power. Channels 8-14 are FRS (Family radio Service) and can be used by anyone and are set to run on Low Power. The power is not adjustable with this radio. So now for the manual. Uniden made this radio for Radio Shack. So this manual is for the same radio only with the actual Uniden name. Same exact physical radio same exact manual. http://www.uniden.com/pdf/GMR1038-2om.pdf

Whats the radious on Conair 2 way radio


Most handheld radios will talk line-of-sight up to two miles. Obstacles will reduce the range. Talking from inside to outside of a building you might expect 1/4 to 1/2 mile.

Can a Motorola talk about 250 talk to a cobra CXT 195. They can hear me from the Motorola I just cant hear them


Your code (PL code, interference eliminator, quiet call) is not programmed the same on both radios. The Cobra appears to be set to open squelch (no code). Set your Motorola code setting to zero (off). This should solve the problem.

This is a confusing website. But my problem is with a pair of Uniden FRS 420 two way radios. Have replaced batteries, gone through manual, have every option set properly but still have no reasonable...


Are you stating the volume is not loud enough when someone talks or just idling. If if has a squelch knob turn it til it makes a hissing noise or rushing noise. then back to where the noise just quits. This is the proper setting. Then when someone talks increase volume to listening level you choose. If this does not work take them back and get your money back.

Can you use 2 different talkabouts fr50 and t5420 with each other? I have just one of each unfortunately.


  • Yes they will both talk together on the same channels just fine. Most of the more recent Talk About Radios are FRS/GMRS with 22 channels. These radios are FRS only with out the GMRS. The FRS are the first 14 channels in most talk about's as are your radios.

Motorola talkabout 250 beeps when the talk button is pushed


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: http://www.usersmanualguide.com/motorola/2-way_radio/t280
