Question about Motorola Talkabout T4500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

My pair of t4508 handsets do not 'talk' to each other.

My pair of t4508 (chinese version of t4500) aren't working anymore. I can turn them on and perform all the functions on the menu button but the handsets do not 'talk' to each other. I have tried taking the batteries in and out to no avail. They have been sitting in my office drawer for a couple of years unused and the last time I used them they were fine. Any thoughts?? Many thanks Jeff Lardner

Check the programming of the frequency and interference code eliminator. Be certain they match one another exactly. Here is a link to the user's guide http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T4500_User_Manual_E.pdf

Also, check the battery contacts on both the radio and the battery for corrosion or film. Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.

First of all do they do anything, if not remove batteries and clean contacts in the units battery case even if they look good use a finger nail file board, then power up if possible and power down then repower and check the settings and see if you can get to de fault setting again

How to pair Motorola T4508 with Oregon Scientific TP391 ?


From what we can tell the TalkAbout T4508 is a non-USA version of the T4500. The T4508 operates in a frequency range from 409-410 MHz. Unlike the USA version which operates between 462-468 MHz.

And it looks like the TP391 operates around 466 MHz. User Guide: http://de.oregonscientific.com/ulimages/manuals2/tp391_EN.pdf

This being said, your radios might not be compatible.

Best regards.

How do I use my T4500 Motorola Talkabout?


Here is a link to the user guide for the T4500 radio: http://www.giantintl.com/radiopdfs/manuals/US/T4500.pdf

A few tips: Set your frequencies to be the same on both radios. Put your code and any special features on Zero or Off, until you feel comfortable with the use of the radio and are ready to turn them on.

One of my walky talkys(motorola T4500) makes an extra beeping noise whenever i turn it on. This noise also shortens up what people are saying before they finish talking. How do I fix that?


What you might be experiencing is the Talk Confirmation Tone aka Roger Beep. I have looked through the T4500 manual and do not see any instructions for turning it off, just that it is listed as a feature. However, something you might try is holding in the + (plus) button while turning on the radio and see if it disables the feature. This method is used on many of the other TalkAbout models.

If it is not the Roger Beep, it could be a low battery beep. But from your explanation it sounds more like a Roger Beep.

I have 2 Motorola T5000s and 1 T4500 that came together in a set years ago. The two T5000s seem to connect to each other fine, and the T4500 receives messages and signals from the T5000, but does not seem...

http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T4500_User_Manual_E.pdf

Check your interference eliminator code (aka PL, private line, or code). It is likely set to zero (off) on the T5000s and set to a different number on the T4500s. They must match to work together. Otherwise the one with code turned on will not recognize the other one.

Hi got a set T4508. One unit just gives some electronic beeps when pressing the "tone" button,and do not connect with the second unit (second unit works normal). Troubled unit can receive ok from from...


1) Check the programming to be certain they are on the same frequency.
2) Check your batteries, as it takes more energy to transmit than to receive. Swapping the batteries from the good unit to the suspect unit should tell if it is a battery issue.

In looking at the user manual for the T4500, it does not appear to have an interference eliminator code. If the T4508 were to have "code" this also would need to be programmed identically to the other radio.

Chinese version t4501, 1 handset tx-ok, rx-not ok


What you are describing indicated the "code" is not set the same on both radios. Check your frequency, interference code eliminator and Qt filter (if any). All the settings must be identical between the two radios. If you are still having issues, set your code and Qt filter (if any) to zero (off) and then try it. Lastly, check your batteries. Bad or poorly charged batteries can cause transmit issues, as it takes more power to transmit than to receive.

Base set fine - additional handsets dont work


The additional handset and the base need to "pair" first. Put the handset in the base cradle till you see the red light blinking. That's when they are paired.
