Check the programming of your frequency, interference eliminator code and Qt filter (if any). Be certain the radios match identically. If you are still having problems turn your Qt filter (if any) off, and set your code to zero. If the problem still persists, you have a radio problem.

Why When I push PTT on my chatterbox the whole thing powers off


When you hit the PTT the radio draw more power and either the battery can't provide the current or you have a bad connection. Try changing the battery

I have two talk about radios that use to communicate with each other, now they don't. One talks but the other doesn't. The date on the radios is May 29,1998


See the red LED is lit when you pressing the PTT. If it is working then you need to see the Radio hardware side specially PA and associated circuit. Also see when you press the faulty Radio PTT your good radio have any response. See its green LED lit or you hear any click sound.

Typically this would indicate a battery problem. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit. If the radio still shuts off when the PTT is pressed you have a radio problem. If it works fine, then you know your battery, despite showing fully charged, is bad.

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.

Re: MagOne by Motorola, BPR40 -- What button should I push and how many times to make a radio stop beeping repeatedly before I can communicate? Thanks!


None of the buttons will solve this issue.

A repeating low tone is heard when you press the PTT if your battery level is low. You may have a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so the first place this shows up is when pressing the PTT. A quick way to check this is to swap batteries with a known good radio and see if the problem switches to the other radio.

Battery tips: Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to remove the film caused by hand oil. Always charge your battery with the radio turned off. And be certain your charger is plugged into an outlet that is not connected to a light switch shutting off power. Batteries last approx. 2 years. Check your battery's date code to see its age. (3 or 4 digit number, first one-two numbers are the year, second two are the week of the year. example: 1132 would be 2011 the 32nd week)

If the above does not solve your problem, you should see your local Motorola dealer, or a nationwide repair center for more assistance. Current flat rate repair on this style unit is typically around $69.

FYI: Your buttons are likely top button = monitor/sticky monitor and the bottom button could be hi/low power, scan or one of several other features. Each button has a short and a long press option.

Best regards.

My walkie talkies arent communicating when i press the ppt button. it transmits too fast before i get a chance to talk into it. what can i do to fix them? is there a reset button? they are the motorola...


The ACTUAL problem is your rechargeable batteries have most likely depleted over time, and since it takes more batterie power to transmit than to receive it can appear that your batteries are fully charged and you can be receiving but due to the batterie it will be unable to transmit

Walkie talkies model gmr325-2 ic;513C-UT914 HOW DO I GET THESE TO TRANSMIT, MY HUSBAND HAS CANCER AND WE NEED THEM IN OUR BEDROOMS AND WHEN I AM OUTSIDE, TK U, TK U


In order to get the most out of your new radio, read this reference guide completely before attempting to operate the radio.

Turning the Radio On and Adjusting the Volume

1) Press and hold the key to turn the radio ON.

2) To change the volume level press the volume/monitor up or down key to increase or decrease the volume level.

3) Press and hold the key to turn the radio OFF.

Adjusting the Sound (Key Beeps)

Your radio emits a beep each time one of the keys (except for the PTT button and call key) is pressed.
The sound of the Key Beep will increase or decrease depending on the volume level setting.

To turn OFF this beep:

Press and hold the call key while turning ON the radio.

To turn ON this beep:

Turn the radio OFF and ON again.

Choosing a Channel

Your GMR325-2 radio has 22 channels you can use to talk to others. In order to speak to someone,
each of you must be set to the same channel.

To choose a channel:

Press the channel/scan up or down key to increase or decrease the channel number displayed.

Channel Scan Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio has a channel Scan feature that allows you to easily Scan all 22 channels. When an active channel is detected, the unit will pause on that channel until the channel is clear. Then after a 2 second delay, the unit will continue scanning.

Pressing PTT button while the Scan is paused on a channel will allow you to transmit on that channel.

To turn ON channel scanning:

Press and hold either the channel/scan up or down key. The channel number on the display
will rapidly cycle through the channels.

To turn OFF channel scanning:

Press either the channel/scan up or down key.

Talking on Your Radio

To talk to others using the radio:
1) Press and hold the PTT button and speak in a clear, normal voice about 2-3 inches away from the microphone.

While you are transmitting the tx icon is displayed. To avoid cutting off the first part of your transmission, pause slightly after pressing the PTT button before you start talking.

2) When you are finished speaking, release the PTT button.You can now receive incoming calls. While receiving, the rx icon is displayed.

Transmitting a Call Alert Tone

Your GMR325-2 radio is equipped with a call tone that will be transmitted when the call key is pressed.

To transmit the call alert tone, press the call key.

The tone will automatically be transmitted for a fixed length of time.

Auto Squelch Feature

The GMR325-2 is equipped with an automatic squelch system which shuts off weak transmissions
and unwanted noise due to terrain conditions or if you have reached your range limit.

Monitor Mode Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio allows you to listen for weak signals on the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON monitor mode:

Press and hold the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will blink.

To turn OFF monitor mode:

Press the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will stop blinking.

Automatic Power Save Feature

Your GMR325-2 has a unique circuit designed to dramatically extend the life of the batteries. If there is neither transmission nor an incoming call within 2 seconds, your radio switches to the Power Save mode. The radio is still able to receive transmissions in this mode.

KEYLOCK ON/OFF

Press and hold the call key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display.
To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call again.

Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

ROGER BEEP

Roger Beep is a BEEP that is sent to notify the end of transmission.
Roger Beep can be heard through the speaker when Key Beep is on.
Roger Beep is transmitted even if key beep is turned off. However Roger Beep will not be heard from the speaker.

To turn OFF Roger Beep: Press and hold the channel/scan up Key while turning on the radio.

Do i need to turn radios off to charge also what would cause them to turn off after i push the red talk button?


If the battery charge state is too low to support transmitting, most radios will power OFF when the PTT transmit key is pressed. Most radio manufacturers recommend that their radios be powered OFF for charging, but they will still charge if powered ON -- just slower.

Try checking the vibra call settings for your vibrating issue. Also, as for the radios not communicating with one another you should check the programming of the frequency, interference eliminator and the Qt filter. All radios must be identical to work together.
