It would seem that this is a problem with the contact/switch of your Motorola T5700. When a headset, ear piece or external speaker is plugged in, an internal switch transfers the connection from the speaker to the external. This is better illustrated in the image below.
Initially, you can try an electronic contact cleaner. If that doesn't work, you may have to open the unit and manually scrape off any corrosion from the contacts/terminals or slightly bent it to improve contact.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need addition al information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Your Motorola radios operate in the FRS/GMRS band, which is at 462 MHz. Police, fire, EMS services, etc. operate in the 150 or 800 MHz bands. Your radios cannot receive public service transmissions, and they cannot be modified to do so. Monitoring public service transmissions will require a scanner.

Some number their channels differently, but all FRS/GMRS radios operate in the same mode and will have at least some frequencies in common. Check the channel/frequency lists for both radios and you'll be able to talk to each other.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf
You will need to program the frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) to match. For basic operation set the frequency and then set the code and Qt filter (if any) to off (zero).
