Question about Two-Way Radios
I have a Realistic Pro 2021, the battery indicater light will no quit beeping, I have put a new battery in, the scanner still is beeping, thanking you in advance if you can solve my problem. Bob Cranston
Hi to all, having read the possible solutions to my problem, I removed the case from the radio exposing all of the inside after a good visual of the components I discovered lots of dust and places around the battery compartment had corrrosion inside the where I would not have seen, after cleaning well with contact spray and blowing the dust out of it I now have a fully restored scanner. Thanks for the advice and have a Great 2008!!!

There could be three (3) reasons why the low battery indicator is activated:
1. weak/undercharge/discharge batteries;
2. dirty/corroded/loose battery contacts/terminals; and/or
3. internal fault with the electronic sensing for battery level/state.
Corrective measures would require:
a. replace/recharge batteries. The new rechargeable batteries need at least 16 hours of charging time;
b. clean, scrape, tighten (need to bend a little more towards the battery terminals) the spring/contacts of the battery holder;
c. (on the internal fault) your best bet might be to seek the services of a professional electronic technician since this would need familiarity with electronic components, their circuitry and diagnosis, perhaps a bit of soldering and the use of a DVM.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
