Motorola T5700 Talkabout Series

Hi

Appreciate your advice to resolve this problem. I have recently bought a hands free kit. Once plug into the hands free jack of my walkie talkie, I can used the hands free kit without any problem. But now the problem is that after removing the hands free kit from the jack, the speaker on my walkie talkie will not turn back on...... How do I go about to get the speaker mode switch on again.

Thanks

Hi,

It would seem that this is a problem with the contact/switch of your Motorola T5700. When a headset, ear piece or external speaker is plugged in, an internal switch transfers the connection from the speaker to the external. This is better illustrated in the image below.

Initially, you can try an electronic contact cleaner. If that doesn't work, you may have to open the unit and manually scrape off any corrosion from the contacts/terminals or slightly bent it to improve contact.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need addition al information.

Good luck and kind regards.

How do I find a replacement back panel for my Motorola 5700 talk about. Need 2.


Parts for the small size TalkAbout line of radios were never offered to dealers, other than batteries, chargers and accessories. Your best option is to purchase a used radio from ebay to scalp for parts, or possibly by contacting a vendor such as www.wirelesspro.com, who deals in lots of the smaller TalkAbout radios. They may have some which have been scrapped for parts.

The larger TalkAbout line of radios, such as the TalkAbout Distance and Distance DPS are repairable radios, and many parts for them are still available.

Best regards.

T5700 and T9500 con speak between them?


Directions for programming the T5700 can be found starting on page 18 here http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Directions for programming the T9500 can be found on page 1 under the heading MENU OPTIONS here http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T9500%20FINAL%20-%20English%20only%20all%20rights%20reserved%20and%20call%20center%20email%2004-24-07.pdf

These two radios have many similar features, but some which differ. For best results leave all the special features such as Qt filter, call alert, and interference eliminator codes, turned off or set to zero until you get the radios to function in a basic mode on just the same channel as one another. Then once you've found what works, you can experiment adding special features, if desired.

Best regards.

Motorola Talkabout T5700 and Audiovox GMRS 1582CH headphones


Hi,

Unfortunately yes. More often than not the pin/wiring arrangements are different, if not the physical sizes and dimensions, not to mention electrical characteristics such as impedance, common ground, ptt and VOX feature. If it is just an earpiece or headphones that is required, then any such accessory would do and it would be a matter of replacing the plug and/or rewiring the connection points.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Motorola Talkabout T5700 and Audiovox GMRS 1582CH don't talk


Hi,

Most radios of this series would have Interference Eliminator Codes. The codes eliminate other incoming transmission not with the same code (number). There could be similar radios working on the same channel/frequency, but if they do not have the same code then neither one would hear each other. This does not make a channel "private", rather it limits what one can hear on that channel to another radio with an identical setting of the code. In some Motorola models, pressing the Menu button until the small numbers/code flashes would enable them to be changed. To change, press the + or - keys. Pressing the MON key or setting the code to Zero would enable the radio to receive and sound off all incoming signals with or without the code.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Missing recharging cord


Hello Krisso,

Your best bet is likely going to be contacting Motorola directly. Their parts department may have the charger available. Their product support number is 1-800-353-2729.

Motorola T5700 Talkabout


Hello Player1985,

I don't think there is any easy way to check to see if the radios are stolen or not based on the serial number. Motorola may have some record of this assuming that the original owners reports the radios as stolen to them but most manufacturers do not track this information in my experience for these type of consumer radios. I don't know for sure whether Motorola would or would not have this information, but you certainly can check with them if it will make you feel better.

As far as what they are worth, similar new radios sell for around $80-90 per pair.

Hope that helps.
