Question about Motorola Talkabout MT352R Two-way Radios, 35 miles Range, IP-54 Weatherproof

2 Answers

Why does my volume not return to normal levels after using a motorola headset? Is there a way to return the unit to factory settings?

I used a Motorola 1518 Surveillance Headset with PTT Mic which worked as described but after removing, the volume coming from the speaker remains muted and muffled. Mic volume on the receiving end is fine and all functions work properly but it's difficult to hear. I thought it may be a problem with this particular unit but I tried the other headphone (I bought a set of two) into the other radio same problem. I'm not sure if it's a setting that may have been tripped after using the headset (VOX or Noise Filter) but I'm not aware of all the features. What else can I try?

    Press and hold for three seconds, then rotate clockwise to increase, or anti-clockwise to decrease volume level

While this seems an odd situation,it is quite common. The radio volume is different through the audio jack than the regular speaker. You could plug the earpiece in and out with the radio on and it could work, and it may not be in the manual, but you should turn the radio off to remove the earpiece. The radio should also be off when you insert the earpiece. No, I do not have your exact radio in my hands, just 32 years experience with all makes of radios and earpieces. This advice has not changed in all this time. Also, the VOX feature is often engaged when plugging an earpiece into a radio that is already on.

The volume control for the headset is typically the same one you use for the phone. plug the headset in again & use the volume control to increase/decrease volume as you require, remove the headset and use the same volume control to increase/decrease the volume on the device..

Testimonial: "There is no button, unless you are referring to PTT button. Also, I tried removing the headset and adjusting the volume. Likewise, I removed the headset and repeated the procedure. You do not seem familiar with this radio, but by turning the volume knob counter-clockwise it turns the volume down and eventually off. Clockwise rotation turns the radio on and increases the volume. The headset does not have a volume control switch."

    The volume knob is also the power switch on the radio. Removing the headset and repeating the procedure has no effect.

Where is the volume


Little buttons on side of headset. Typically the factory setting is for right ear. So volume button on top would be up volume and bottom would be lower volume.

Plantronics CS55. When using the wireless headset


Echo is usually caused by the transmit (speak) level on the unit being set too high.

1. First, try lowering the volume of the telephone. If you still hear an echo, adjust the volume of the headset itself.

2. The master transmit controls of the headset are the ABCD switch settings on the bottom of the base. A is the lowest and D is the highest setting.

3. You can fine tune this setting with the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the back of the charging base.

4. If this doesn't fix the echo, try moving the configuration dial on the left side of the charging base. The recommended setting for most phones is 1.

Returned the motorola back to the store and got another brand. Did the full install (add Bluetooth) Had same problems.

Cannot increase volume on my Motorola S 9 stereo headset.


The problem is that the unit is not immune to sweat as Motorola claims it is. Mine did the same thing with trying to lower the volume. You might try to dry it out good with a hair dryer (but don't get it too hot). That might help for a while, but eventually it will short out again and you won't be able to fix it. Sony just came out with a unit that is similar and I am going to dump the Motorola for the Sony to see if it works better.

Using Motorola Blue Tooth with PS3


Yes you can. Just go to accessories or audio device settings. Have your headset on and hit connect bluetooth device. The key it asks for should be 0000. If that doesn't work do a quick search online and you should be able to find one that works.

Hi


The first 2 answers sound relay dumb but always start at the beginning when diagnosing a problem. 1: make sure you're not placing your thumb over the Mic (located at the bottom, front of the device). 2: make sure Mute is not turned on, if it is tap it to turn it off. 3: if your using handsfree mode try picking the phone up and using it normally. There's no Mic volume control in the standard Matchbox based GUI but some 3rd party software does include volume adjustments so take a look at your settings in any control apps you have installed. lastly see if you get the same problem using a headset, you have not said if you are using the phone normally, with a headset/BlueTooth headset or in handsfree mode. Post back if non of this helps.
