Question about Radio Communications

1 Answer

We bought the GMRS1072CH walkie talkies last year but never used them. We're trying to charge them now but we're not sure if they are taking the charge. The red lights come on but is there supposed to be another light when they are charged fully?

Depends, is there another LED present that yuo would expect to light up? Not familiar with these chargers. Ours do a number of things to let you know what is going on. A dead battery lights up the charger with ared LED, it blicks red if the battery is defective, and goes green when fully charged. along the way I think there is an amber LED indicator but I am not sure what that does.
Your may go green or just blank out when fully charged.

Radio shack walkie talkie 21-1914 replaced batteries will not charge


Hi pearl,

A simple problem to solve at last!!!

Inside the battery compartment you should find a switch, which indicates Recharge/Normal, make sure you select recharge if your using these batteries, otherwise no charging occurs.

If this does not work, take out the recharchables and select normal on switch, place fully charged normal batteries into the compartment, making sure you put them in the right way around, close the flap and turn on the radio, if this works, then your battery switch is faulty, however, you can get lithium ion batteries, which will last longer than most other high duty batteries.

The cost of getting these radios is not worth the money, unless you are technically minded and buy the repacement switch and repair it yourself.

Otherwise try all of the above, and remember, when charging batteries that are rechargeable, never leave the radio on, as this can wear out your batteries quickly.

I hope this advice is helpful to you.

Best regards,
Peter

The battery is fully charged on the walkie talkies and all are on the same channel, however out of 12 walkie talkies only 2 will work. When ever you push the push to talk button the walkie talkie shuts...


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.

Walkie talkie batteries don't last


What you have been using are consumer grade walkie talkies. The rechargeable battery packs in them should last a full business day, unless you are in a high use area. This being said, it is also possible you might need to replace the rechargeable battery pack as they usually have just a one year life expectancy. As they start to fail they will go less and less time in a day.

To answer your question about a radio which will go a full business day, any of the business division Motorola handheld radios would work. Radios such as the CP110, BPR40, CP185, and CP200 are all make to go a full day and sometimes more. Their battery packs depending on chemistry would also need to be replaced every 18-24 months.

Best regards.

Walkie talkie batteries don't last


The Batteries that Motorola uses will die after a while mainly because people leave them on the charger all of the time. But there is a way to refresh them. You let the battery die completely, then you charge it up for about 12 hours. Then you let the battery die completely. Do this a couple of times and the batteries will last long.
Also, Motorola use to make a battery refresher (or did when I worked there.) It will charge and drain the battery automatically. It will even give you a fault if the battery is completely dead. For the HT1000 (for example) it would be the WPPN4065BR.
For future reference, don't constantly charge a battery. Only have it on the charger when the battery is actually dead or very low. This will increase battery life.

How long do you charge the Audiovox GMRS1072CH for.


On Audiovox's 9V 250mA ( not certain) suggested charge time is 8hrs, but if you pop the batteries out of the back and stick them into a dedicated battery charger you can usually have fresh batteries in 2-3hrs.

Configuring audiovox GMRS1072CH walkie talkie


With the issue of 240V if the charger has not a Voltage switch, you will need to find another charger/transformer with the same Voltage/Amps ouput that works with 240V.

For Vox operations, this feature works independly form channel, you should choose the channel# and code # first, to match both radios, and get them communicate, then the Vox feature.
In Some radios the VOX feature works with an external audio accesory, in other radios works with out it.
Basically if this radios works without it, you should see that the radio transmist by itself when you speak direct to the radio, and stops transmiting 1 or2 seconds after you stop talking.

Good Luck.
