Question about Motorola EM1000R Two Way Radio
If you are referring to the receive audio, possibly the reason it is soft/weak are:
1. defective internal speaker - try using an external speaker;
2. volume control - try rotating back & forth till you get satisfactory level. In some cases, you may need to clean the inside of the volume control with an electronic contact cleaner. At worst is that it has to be replaced;
3. defective amplifier - between the volume control and the speaker is the audio amplifier. This is a single op-amp IC U501 (TDA1519A); and/or
4. muting - which is a bit complicated. This is triggered either by the squelch or by the CTCSS tone decoder. You may have partial/false muting. You need to check Q501 (MMBT3904) and its associated circuitry.
Other than #1, most fix would require opening the unit and familiarity with electronic circuitry & components, use of a DVM and soldering iron. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified communication technician.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
