Question about Motorola Talkabout T5950 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

Pair of radios won't talk to each other

Have a pair of the T5950's purchased about 2 years ago that have never worked, according to the owner. I've set both of them to identical channels and interference eliminator codes, turned off the interference eliminator codes, etc. For some reason this pair of radios refuse to talk to each other!!! SN #'s are 176WDV3MKJ and 176WDV3MLP. The only odd thing is when setting the sensitivity, it shows an "E" even though VOX is not turned on. Thanks!

Have you checked the QT filter? The T5950 have an addtional interference filter called the QT filter. It filters out other radios and allows Motorola radios to speak only to other Motorola radios with the filter. Check the QT setting on both radios by pushing the menu button 6 times, the QT setting will show. If it shows a straight line on the display the filter is not on. Now push the + button (beside the menu button), to turn the QT filter on (a Y will show on the screen when on) or the - button to turn it off (the line will show when filter is off). The radios have to match all channels and all filters to talk to each other.

T5950 talk about


Check your frequency, code and Qt filter settings. All must be identical. For basic operation set the code and Qt filter to off (zero). Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T59xx_User_Manual_E.pdf

Best regards.

T5950 Talk abouts


They are probably not programmed to match one another. There are 3 key settings on these radios: Frequency, Interference Eliminator and Qt Filter. If you walk through the programming instructions for each of these and set them identically, they should communicate.

T5950 2-way


Hi,

Initially, pls check that the displays of both radios are identical. This is important to establish that the channel/frequency, Interference eliminator settings and all others are the same that both are paired. In some instances, the radio settings may not be changed if it is locked. Top unlock, press on the MENU button for about 3 seconds. For all other settings, pls refer to the user's manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
