Sounds like you have a bad battery. Most rechargable batteries need to be replaced after 18 months of use. If your battery is newer than this, You have a defective battery.

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: Why doesn't my cobra walkie talkie won't work after 2 mile

If you are referring to FRS or GMRS type radios, 2 miles is just about the maximum distance you will get out of them on normal terrain. Many of these types of radios will advertise claims of 10-15 or more miles of coverage. This type of "theoretical" mileage rarely if ever occurs in typical conditions. Many factors such as trees, buildings, hills and other "line of sight" obstructions will greatly reduce the effective range.

SOURCE: My cobra walkie talkie doesn't work after 2 miles

You didn't include the model number of the radios, but I suspect you're referring to Family Radio Service (FRS) / General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) two way hand held radios. The FRS /GMRS types are limited to just 1/2 watt. Base GMRS type radios are limited to 5 watts. FRS is limited to Ch 1 - 14. Ch 15 - 22 are GMRS only, and require an FCC license to transmit. You can read more about FRS on Wikipedia.

Many FRS / GMRS two way radios claim incredible distances on the packaging. I've seen some that claim 15+ miles. Given the low power (.5 watt) that they are limited to transmitting, claims such as those would be under the most optimal of conditions. I can assure you that you or I would never encounter those conditions unless we were in some sort of radio laboratory / testing space designed to obtain these crazy distances. In other words, even in optimum "real world" conditions; these radio should only be expected to work when separated up to only several "unobstructed line of sight" miles (such as across open water of a lake, along a beach, etc. The range of these same radios will be reduced significantly when operated indoors, outside between buildings, where blocked by rocks, trees, metal, etc. The only reason you may have reduced range could be due to a power level selector switch that has been set to reduce the output power of the radio. Other than that, I think you'll find a couple of miles is about all you're gong to get.

Good luck!

Why does one earphone work fine on my walkie talkie but the other one you have to press the mic button on the wire and also have to push the talk on the walkie


It seems not to be the earphone. It is likely the audio jack you are plugging into. Type or brand would help. Generally, audio jacks are poorly installed. Or they are are on top of a radio, inviting dirt, debris and water into them. Tap the radio with the issue, audio jack down and see if anything falls out. Then, if possible and at your own risk, use some rubbing alcohol and try to clean it. This may require a very small tool and you may damage the jack beyond repair. Our shop takes radios apart to perform these tasks, plus we have some tiny tools. Even then, we often replace the actual audio jack. They fail.

Is there a way I can change the channel on my Walkie Talkie manually. I can't get them both on the same channel.


On the Motorolas you have to press the menu button until your current channel flashes. Then press the plus (+) or minus(-) sign to change the channel. 21 is a great channel and you can get distance on it.

Motorola EM1000 2 way talkie unable to transmit


Low/Bad battery beep most likely. Try switching batteries to the problem radio and see if the problem goes away. If so, replace the batteries. You might also check the battery contacts both in/on the radio and the battery. Clean with a pencil eraser if necessary.

Hang up


Button on side is not for answering calls.
PTT or Push To Talk allows you to use your mobile like a walkie talkie. It is dependant on your network operator running the service.

Quote from Pocket lint:
To use the function you must first create a group or individual in your phone menu and send an SMS invitation to those you wish to join. Once your contacts are set up, your phone shows which members have their handsets switched on with push-to-talk enabled, in the same way that instant messaging works online. By pushing a single button on the handset, you are connected with one person or with your group. There is no need to dial numbers, nor do the recipients need to answer calls. You simply push a button and talk. As with a walkie-talkie, anyone in the group hears you almost instantaneously. The talking is one way with only one person able to speak at a time. Unlike walkie-talkies, which are infuriatingly dependent on distance, push-to-talk has no such limitations.

You should be able to disable PTT in the Nokia menu, which is best if your network doesn't support it. Plus you won't keep cutting off calls.
