Question about Motorola Radio Communications

1 Answer

I work for a hotel and we have about 6 2 way

I work for a hotel and we have about 6, Motorola 2 way radios that have recently all started experiencing problems. When charging the red light blinks and they sometimes start to beep a bunch. I have replaced all of the batteries and this did nothing. Maybe it is the chargers? I don't know because they all started acting up around the same time, but they each have their own charger. What could this be?

Here are some things to check:
1) Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser. (Both on the radio and charger)
2) Check the date code of the "new" batteries and see if they are less than 2 years old. (3-digit number usually with the first number being the year, the next two the week of the year. ex: 927 would be 2009 the 27th week)
3) The radios must be turned off when on the charger.
4) If using drop-in chargers try charging the battery alone in the charger.
5) Are all the chargers lights blinking? This can be a sign of a bad charger, shorted battery or wrong battery. You mentioned recently replacing them, are they the same chemistry as the previous batteries?

You did not mention the type of radio, so we cannot be more specific in our troubleshooting, but this should get you started. The beeping you are experiencing is most-likely the low battery beep. Your batteries are not getting charged. The above questions should help you narrow down the problem. If you need more assistance post another question and we'll try to help further.

How do you change the channel on the AXU4100


Here is a link to the user guide, where you will find the available built-in frequencies, and instructions: http://acsspirit.com/brochures/ax_user_guide.pdf

You can also take your radio to a Motorola dealer and have them program it (custom) using Motorola software and cable designed for this style radio.

It could be as simple as enabling a private line code (PL code) in the radio. You may not need/want to change frequencies. Adding a PL code would block out other users on your frequency. You would not hear them, despite them still being there.

Best regards.

Why my radios are not working


Dear user,

If all don't work it means there is some big structure blocking signals, please test them by using them outdoors.

Ptt cant go through


It is possible you have a battery or charging problem. Transmitting takes more energy than any other function of the radio. Pressing the PTT can quickly reveal a bad or poorly charged battery pack. Check your charger, clean all battery contacts on the charger and radio with a pencil eraser and try charging again. Also, you can try changing a battery out of a known good unit and see if the problem moves with the battery.

Compatability


Any programmable UHF 450-470MHz mobile radio could be programmed to the frequencies of the Spirit MU series radios.

Your radios are 2 watts, so you would probably want to stay with a 1-10 watt, or 10-25 watt mobile radio, to have the best success. The current compatible model for Motorola is the CM200 UHF radio. If you are looking at a used radio, just simply watch for it to be UHF 450-470 MHz.

Then when you are ready to have the mobile radio programmed, the dealer (or programmer) will need to know the settings of your MU radios. These are easily read out over the phone, or in person by an experienced programmer.

Think there is a battery drain somewhere


Their is possibly a short. I would first isolate the problem. Disconnect the CD player and radio. If you can disconnect it then remove the radio fuse.

Start and drive the car for 15 minutes or so. Shut it off, and let it sit for a while. Then go out and start the car. Repeat this until you are sure that your problem is with the radio or wiring.

If The car fails to start and is having a repeat of the problem you have a parasidic draw on the battery from somewhere.

SIGNAL PROBLEM


the radio has had an internal breakdown, possibly a transmitter or receiver failure. The only thing to do would be to replace or repair the unit. How old is it, as it may be under Motorola warranty if its less than a year. If it's not, you could contact Motorola support, and find out if they offer "flat rate" repair.....I know they do this for all of their 2 way radios and pagers, and the cost for repair is usually around 1/4 of new pricing. If you do get in touch with Motorola support, and have the unit's serial number handy, they will be able to tell you if its still under warranty. 1 888-605-2552 is the support number for Motorola canopy. They would be able to tell you if Flat rate repairs are available, and where to send the unit.
