This is a sign of a bad or low battery. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit to see if the problem is solved. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so as you described a radio can receive messages, but then when you go to transmit and use more energy the battery will not have enough power to do so.

Best regards.

SOURCE: pick up other walkie talkies

Should do. The available channels are defined by the regulator rather than by the manufacturer. Only thing to watch out for is similar looking devices designed to be sold into different markets (for instance, radios made to the European PMR446 standard work at a slightly lower frequency than those intended for sale in the US).

Hello Bo Duke,

If one radio won't walk to the other my guess if that you have the Privacy Code function set up incorrectly.

The privacy code function mutes the radio unless it receives a signal from another radio transmitting the same privacy code. If Privacy Codes are turned on for Radio A but not turned on for Radio B then you will be able to transmit from Radio A to Radio B but not from Radio B to Radio A. If Privacy Codes are turned on for both radios but each unit is set to a different code then neither radio will be able to talk to the other.

Make sure that the radios are both set to the same privacy code or that the privacy code function is turned off on both radios. You can find more information on how this function is set in the radio's Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: The battery is fully charged

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.

SOURCE: When I place the walkie

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.

SOURCE: Motorola Walkie-Talkie will not turn on.

The same thing happened to me, all you have to do is put it on charge for 20 mins, then take it out, keep on pressing the on button, leave again for 5 mins and then click the on button and it should turn on. It just needs a boot or a jumpstart if you have not used it for a long time like me :) Hope this helps
