Kenwood TK-3402 blinking red only on the programmed channels

I can read and program the radio. But when I turn it on it doesn`t give any sound and doesn`t transmit or receive. The red blinking happens only when i put the channel selector on a programmed channel. if I choose a non programmed channel it gives a solid red (Not blinking)

The radio's microprocessor and synthesizer are told to show those indications when one of two conditions is met: either the frequency input is outside the operational range of the radio, or the VCO ("voltage controlled oscillator") is above or below its "lock range". The adjustments are physically small, quite fragile, and a very slight rotation in either direction can make a large change in the VCO. It's worth springing for a factory service manual so you can tell for sure where the meter the VCO is metered and how to set it to the correct range. And whilst I can't remember off the top of my head (I don't have that manual myself), many radios have separate Tx and RX VCOs, with separate voltage metering points and voltages to shoot for.
IHope that helps.

Hi,

To help you find a solution, you will require the user manual for your radio, if you don't have a copy then try this: join yahoo group SPECIFIC to your radio Make/Model, there is a wealth of info there and you may be able to download manuals, schematics and other stuff for your radio, if available and all this is free.

I hope this helps you to find the solution.

Regards,
Peter

Kenwood tk 3131 , used , good shape-- how do I reprogram back to GMRS channels only?


Hi Carter,

All is good for you here, the answer is yes to cloning, but you will need the software and cables to do so, if you haven't already got this.

If you do require software and cables, ebay is the best and often cheapest way of getting this gear. look under Electronics, Radios, and follow the links to Parts & accessories.

Failing that, join yahoo group SPECIFIC to you radio Make/Model, the expert team there will give you all the info you need, plus you can download manuals, schematics and software free.

I hope this is the news you've been waiting for.

Cheers,
Peter

How to reset tk 3107 keenwood


The Kenwood TK-3101 are programmed through the old DOS based program and a program cord. The only way to "reset" is also through the cord. Finding both the program and cord might be difficult but i do have those and let me know if you need assistance?

I bought additional kenwood tk 2100 radios and they are not sending the signal to my existingones. The fcc numbers and interior tk numbers are the same. How to I get them on the same frequency.


To change the channel frequencies on your TK2100, simply press and hold the PTT switch ("talk button") and Monitor key, then turn the power on. Now press the PTT switch again. The light should change from orange to red and a beep should sound. Next, adjust the channel switch to the channel you wish to program. Now simply press the PTT button to choose between 4 to 8 possible frequencies, depending on your model.
You can find the manual and frequency graphs here: http://www.heritageresale.com/documents/TK2100OwnersManual.pdf
