Question about Motorola For RADIUS P110 7.5v 1200mAh NiCd Battery 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

I have 2 Motorola P110 2 Ch Radios. One powers up and when I press the PTT button the red light comes on, so I think it works but the 2nd one when I press the PTT button the light is a lighter color of red and has a tone that stays on till I let go of the button. Why does it do that?

There a a few things which could cause this:

1) You have the radio set to an unprogrammed channel.

2) You have a bad, low or defective battery. (Try switching batteries with the other unit and see if the problem goes away.)

3) Your radio needs repair.

4) Your radio has busy-channel-lock-out activated and you are trying to transmit on a frequency which has activity in your area.

Cannot transmit, getting a constant tone while holding talk button and transmit light not coming on, any help?


Check the headset jack. There may be something inside causing a short. also, the CLS has an audio tone out button. Be certain you are not pressing it as you push the PTT button. The PTT is odd on this radio, it is the top BIG rubber button on top FRONT. Many customers get this confused with the tone transmit button.

PTT button on RDV 2020 is hard to push


This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.

Best regards.

Is it possible to fix a non working PTT button on a RDV2020


The PTT button is one of the common failure parts. It is replaceable, but best done by an experienced repair center.

The following things can happen over time:
1) The internal PTT switch can wear out from frequent usage.
2) The user begins to press harder to get the PTT to work, bending the PTT switch further away from the external button the user is pressing.
3) Plastic diaphram, if any present, gets broken in half, and the external PTT switch doesn't work anymore.

Several companies offer flat rate repair on this style unit for around $85.

I have a motorola mv11c and it works fine and I just purchased a pair of motorola mv21cv. They must be on a different frequency my question is how do I change the frequence on my mv21cv radios to be...


Hold in the PTT button while you turn on the radio. It will announce the frequency number. You can use the PTT button to change the number. Then press the Monitor (small possibly red) button to lock in your setting. The next number your radio announces will be the Code. Use the same method to change the code if needed. Then press the Monitor button to lock in your setting. Once you have set both your freq and code you can turn the radio off, then turn back on normally and use the radios.

Best regards.

How could i program/change the freq of my motorola gp2000 manually


I don't think that you could program/change the freq of your Motorola GP2000 manually since newer Motorola radios today everything is done by computer and programming sotfware. You need to have software for GP2000, radio interface box ( RIB) and programming cable for GP2000 radio and these devices are not cheap. The best way is to contact a local repair shop to have it done for you or find a two-way radio technician, he could do this if he has all the test equipments required.
Good luck!

Problem charging


If you are referring to a flashing yellow light on the charging base, this is an error code. Either the 1) battery is bad, 2) not making good contact in the charger, or 3) very very low on charge. The solution for this set of problems is as follows: 1) have the company you purchased them from replace them, 2) clean your contacts with a pencil eraser, 3) leave the battery on the charger with the yellow light flashing for an hour or two. If the battery is just very low on a charge, it will come back to life and the light will change to be constant. If the battery is bad or shorted out, the light will continue to flash and you will need to get with the vendor you purchased the batteries from.

Other things which come to mind are compatibility issues such as you are using a different battery chemistry than you had before. NiCd batteries can charge on either of the two chargers available for the P110 (slow rate or fast rate). However, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries require a fast rate charger.

If you are referring to a yellow blinking light on the radio while it is in the charger. You need to shut your radio off. Radios should always be turned off when charging. If the radio is left on you will never have a full charge. Also, if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is turned on, while on a charger, you can cause damage to the radio.

FYI: There is no light to show "out of range" on the radio, unless you are possibly using a trunking or repeater system. A blinking light on your radio indicates the radio is turned on and/or there is traffic on your frequency. Your charger base light can be red, yellow or green. This indicates the charge cycle status. Flashing most always means some type of error.
