Question about Motorola Talkabout T5700 AA (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

One radio doesn't transmit voice

Radios are brand new and charged overnight.

One radio does everything it's supposed to, the other receives great, transmits "call signal" great but does not transmit voice at all.

I've checked all settings and they appear to be identical. Did I miss something?

I have a pair of wrist watch freetalker walkie talkie. One works fine, calls the other and transmits perfectly well. The other however does not appear to join in. It receives the voice message from the...

Odd that it calls itself. I suspect a weak battery on the no transmit unit. Radios require a lot of power to transmit and little to receive. Even if the charger says charged, it is more often the battery than not. If you have the walkie hooked up to the transformer and try talking on it (not recommended) it still could be the battery. Other issues: liquid damage, dropped, etc.

My radio is not transmitting what could be wrong

When the batteries are reaching the end of their life or in need of charging the first thing that is likely to happen is that the unit will be weak when transmitting while receiving just fine. This is because it takes a lot more power from the batteries to transmit than to receive. Try a new set of batteries or if rechargeable then try charging the unit. With regard to regular batteries, make sure your batteries say "alkaline" on them somewhere since they will last much longer and also are more likely not to leak inside which can ruin your radio. Ignore labels on batteries that read "super heavy duty" or other such nonsense. Look for one and only one word "alkaline" on them and buy any brand you want to since cheap or expensive they are basically the same. Don't waste your money or risk your radio by using anything but alkaline batteries.

Hope this helps.

What are some of the reasons my radio transmits but doesn,t receive

One possibility is the other radios in your group are operating open squelch (aka without a tone code, private line, PL, interference eliminator). If your radio has a CODE turned on, your radio will block receiving radios without the same exact code.

Best regards.

Can't transmit signal. Only get a 2 second beep when I push the transmit button

You have a poorly charged or bad battery. It takes more power to transmit than to receive. Usually the first thing you lose with a low, bad or poorly charged battery is transmit.

Try a known good battery in the radio. This should solve the problem. If not, check your battery contacts, as you may have one which is bad or not making good contact.

Clean your contacts with a pencil eraser to assure good connection with the charger.

Best regards.

Radio will not send

It is possible your Code for transmit is different than your Code for receive. Cobra makes so many models, you are not giving enough information. Also, Transmit takes a LOT of power, so even if everything is setup, if your batts are weak or old, the radio will receive, but not transmit. Also check your antenna, make sure it is tight and NEVER transmit without an antenna. Yes, all lights will work even with old batteries.

I would guess you have a PL set on the receive side, and not on the Transmit side. So the audio is being blocked by the PL (as it is supposed to be!) Check your programming, make sure you have the same PL on tx and rx.

I can't get the radios to communicate with eachother, they have power and chirp when I press the talk button but nothing is being received.??? They look like the EM1000 model of Motorola radios. The FCC...

These are multi-channel FRS / GMRS radios. In order to receive transmitted signals from the other radio, they both must be set to the same Channel and the same Interference Eliminator Code. One without the other will keep audio from being heard on the receiving radio.

I suspect you need to refresh yourself with the radio's controls and settings. If you have lost the manual, you can get a copy free of charge from Motorola You'll need a free program called Adobe Reader to view it.

Once you have everything - look at the right hand side of page 1 for "Talking and Listening" followed by "Menu Options" to set the radios up correctly. Keep in mind that if VOX is selected, and there is sound near both radios, they both will transmit at the same time - since the radios receive OR transmit at any given time, no audio will be heard from either.

Fram my radio gp338, the audio becomes slowly goes

if when you are transmiting your voice level is falling down in the others radios, this is a modulation problem, try with an audio accesory if you voice level or modulation level keeps constant your radio need to be repaired. if your problem is when you are receiving a communication, may be the speaker needs to be replaced

Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving

To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.
