If I may add to luckydave's post, you can verify if it is the internal speaker which is at fault by connecting an ear piece or an external speaker to the jack. In some instances, it could be due to worn out volume control and/or squelch control.
Good luck and kind regards.

This is commonly a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. Check your charger, battery and battery contacts. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser. Try recharging the battery, making certain the radio is turned off while on the charger. If this does not solve the problem, try swapping batteries with a known good unit. If the swapped battery solves the problem, you know you need to replace your battery and/or charger.
If the problem remains with the swapped battery, you know you have a radio problem. In this case, you will need to look at the battery contacts on the radio, where the battery meets the radio and see if you see a problem there. OR a problem with how the battery fits to or in the radio.
If it is a radio problem, you may need to see your local Kenwood dealer for assistance.
