This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.

Best regards.

My magone BPR40 radio isn't sending when PTT is pushed. It is receiving fine. Any suggestions?


A couple of thoughts:
1) Check the mic hole and see if it is covered or clogged with debris.
2) Does your PTT button seem hard or the opposite, mushy? You could have an internal PTT issue. The PTT is a common failure part on 2-way radios. Feel around for the 'sweet' spot and see if you can make a simple or partial transmission, or if it will even momentarily open up the receiver on the other unit. If so, your radio is in need of repair. It would likely need a new internal PTT. (At most repair centers where the BPR40 is repaired the flat rate repair currently are around $69 for the BPR40)
3) Has any reprogramming been recently done on the radio? If so, double check the programming to be sure your PL/DPL code is set the same as your other radio.\
4) Check your battery. Trade batteries with the other unit and see if the problem changes. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive.

Best regards.

How do you disable the PTT button on the Samsung


From what I have read, there is no setting to disable the PTT
If you don't plan on using your PTT in the future.
Look for the PTT button on the left side of the phone.
Take a pin slide it under the button and pop it off.
On the back of the button, there is a little tab.
Take a nail clipper and shorten the tab just a bit.
Snap the button back on the phone.
With the tab shortend, the PTT will not activate when pushing or hitting the button.

How do you disable the PTT button on the Samsung Rugby? I do not use Push to Talk, but I keep getting the "Would you like to initialize PTT service?" question every time I accidentally hit the PTT button....


Stick your fingernail or a thin blade between the button cover toward the front side of phone. Pry it out just like would the charge port cover. Cut off the protruded part of the button cover (this is the pusher stick that activates the real button), and then press the button back in place.

Now the button is no more but looks functional, the only caveat is that if you suddenly decided you want PTT to work, your button is dead unless you can aquire a new button cover somehow.

YELLOW SMILEY AT TOP OF SCREEN ...WHAT IS THAT INDICATING ? THANKS


That is indicating that you have turned on the PTT (Push To Talk) feature on the phone. The PTT feature is like you would see on a Nextel phone, operating like a walkie talkie. There is a button on the side of the phone that will have a PTT logo embossed on it. Push that button to activate the PTT feature.

Transmission problem


Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. Use electronic contact cleaner (spray type) on the PTT switch;
2. Use an external speaker/microphone and/or handsfree VOX headset
3. Replace the PTT switch. 4 solder points. Might not be easy but doable.

The last would require that you remove the defective PTT switch and use that as per sample when looking for replacement. Some printers uses the same type of switch. Familiarity with electronic components/circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would also be required.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
