2 way radios wont communicate between one another.batteries are chaarged radios turn not know how to set channels on them.

Hi Curtis,

Oh dear, So much loose change, that you had to buy a TOY radio.

I can't stress enough that for a few more dollars, people could buy a half decent radio, and you wouldn't have these issues.

These are mass produced, nasty little monsters, things keep going wrong with them, and very little can be done, if anything to solve the recurring problems.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but These are TOYS for children to play with, not a real 2-way radio.

I want Security code for the radio ken wood DPX5200M serial no 31104056

That looks like an aftermarket radio, meaning it did not come with the car and was installed afterward. how to get the code would be new to me. the factory radios the dealer can get the code with serial # and proof of ownership.

I would try to contact kenwood they are the ones who will be able to help you. when the radio was installed who programed the code, if no one entered a code then it may be a default code like 0000 or 9999 but i would call them first.
is the screen displaying the word CODE?

what happened, did you replace the battery or radio just went out?

Check its wiring. The memory section supply line should come direct from battery. Now it may connected after the ignitian switch. Cehck it, by an auto-electrician. OK.

How do I get my motorola T5725 radios to talk to eack other

Hell ssalah,

Most of the time when one radio cannot talk to the other radio it means that the Privacy Codes are not configured properly. In order for the two radios to talk to one another they both have to be set to the same channel and Privacy Code or the Privacy Code function needs to be turned off on both radios.

The Privacy Codes can be used to keep the radios silent unless they receive a signal from another radio using the same code. This enables the radios to be used on busy channels with a minimum of interference. If Privacy Codes are turned off on one radio and turned on for the other radio, the situation you describe will occur.

Consult the user's manual for information on the Privacy Code function and either disable the function on both radios or set both radios to the same code.

Talkabout T5720 Frequencies

Hello Ruaal,

The frequencies in the TalkAbout T5720 are not adjustable. The radio operates on the designated Family Radio Service channels located at 462 and 467 MHz. There is no way to change these channels to be at 463 and 464 MHz.
