Question about Two-Way Radios
I will really be glad if you can help me.When i turn on my home theartre system, 2 or 3 of the tweeters make a 'pop' sound, like they have burst or something, then the dvd player itself goes to dvd/cd mode and all the buttons stop functioning exept 'off'.Even when i turn it off it the speakers make a funny sound.
I have tried everything, including disconnecting the speakers that make the 'pop' sound when i turn it on but it still doesnt work!This system is less than a year old so i wonder why its acting up like this.It has diminished my confidence in LG products.PLEASE HELP!!!
Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'
From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.
You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.
You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.
It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.

This unit does not have a reset button. While troubleshooting you might check the batteries. Be certain they are in correctly and the contacts are free of corrosion. You can use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts.
Walk through all the programming instructions in the manual, double checking both the frequency and interference eliminator codes. A quick setting back to zero on the code would alleviate any problem with that section of the radio.
As far as your "paging" this operates on the same frequency and code as the rest of the radio. If the radios are not working correctly in this relm, the paging will not work either.

Advertising for various radios differs, and can offer some incredible ranges. The following is a good rule of thumb in the real world:
Handheld radios generally will talk "radio-to-radio", "line-of-sight" up to 2 miles. Once you start putting obstacles in between the radios you will shorten your range.
Mobile radios, such as those mounted in vehicles, will generally talk "radio-to-radio" 8-10 miles depending upon the obstacles and the terrain.
Repeater Towers and/or Trunking: If your radio is programmed to match a local repeater or trunking system, your range will be determined by the footprint of that particular system. See your local dealer for details.
Consider your radio can talk as far as it can "see". If you are on a mountain top, your radio will talk far into the valley, and seem to have incredible range. So conversely, if you in a city with many obstacles, you may have a very short range.
