Question about Motorola Radio Communications
When I switch on my Motorola gm3188, it powers up but there is no sound coming out. What is wrong with it ?
This could be one of a variety of problems:
1. Bad speaker
2. No receive
3. You are on an unprogrammed channel
4. You have a bad volume potentiometer (dead spot in the on/off/vol)
5. Another internal issue
Try going to monitor mode and see if you can hear the white noise typical of being on monitor. If not, you could have problem 1, 2 or 4.
Try adjusting the volume and see if the radio works at a different volume level. If so, you have a problem with the volume pot.

The unit has LED activity indicators on the front of the case provide a status display indicating error conditions, transmission, and network activity for the 802.11a (amber) radio or the 802.11b/g (green) radio.
802.11a Activity LED Amber
The amber LED flashes three times per second until firmware is loaded. During boot, 802.11a mobiles cannot associate. After adoption, the amber LED is steady or flashes with 802.11a radio traffic.
The amber LED flashes once per second if an error prevents the 802.11a radio from operating normally.
802.11b/g Activity LED Green
The green LED flashes three times per second until firmware is loaded. During boot, 802.11b/g mobiles cannot associate. After adoption, the green LED is steady or flashes with 802.11b/g radio traffic.
The green LED flashes once per second if an error prevents the 802.11b/g radio from operating normally.
From this, it appears that the 802.11A radio is malfunctioning.
