Hi,

Initially, pls check/clean your antenna, mount, coaxial cable, RF connector, power leads, grounding straps.

Based on your post description, a couple of ideas:
1. Since you receive OK, chances are the antenna/cable is good. You verify though with an SWR meter;
2. Since TX light comes on, looks like the mic, PTT and coiled cord are all OK;
3. All else works but no one can hear you, you have no power output. Use an RF wattmeter with dummy load to verify that you are pushing at least 25 watts. In the absence of a power meter, the SWR would also do or even an indication of a significant current flow to the radio ( use an inline ammeter) would indicate power.
As you will note, some specialized instruments are needed. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified communications technician. TMore often it is the finals or power pack that fails resulting in no TX. In some cases, it is either the RF diode or the power regulator that causes no TX. It may also be worth your while to do a full check over of your antenna system.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Onkyo TX NR515 .. when in standby mode .. light is not coming on .. everything works fine .. i must have pressed something by mistake but cant work it out what ... on the display panel in standby mode...


If Zones are turned on or, if a mobile device connected to the Front Input is charging (MHL), the HYBRID STANDBY indicator won't light. See the TX NR515 owner's manual at http://filedepot.onkyousa.com/Files/own_manuals/TX-NR515_English.pdf for more info.

Your radio is either stuck in VOX mode, or has a bad PTT button. Sometimes when using an audio device a radio will stick in Tx if the device is plugged in while the radio is turned on. When using any remote mic, earpiece, headset, or audio device be certain the radio is turned off when plugging or unplugging the device.

If no audio device is being used, the next possibility is a sticky or bad PTT button. This can sometimes be just the external button sticking, or it can be the internal button has simply worn out from repeated use.

One final thought, if your radio has programmable VOX, check to see if your programming is correct. VOX features when turned on make the radio Tx when it hears any sound, a voice or ambient noise can cause the radio to transmit.

Best regards.

My radio will not transmitt but it receives just fine


Most problems with radios that receive but do not transmit are antenna or antenna wire/connector issues. It's easy to receive with a marginal antenna but transmitting requires a good working antenna. If you have a SWR meter or can get your hands on one, install it in line with the antenna and test for reflected power. Of course, make sure your TX light comes on when you depress the mic switch. If not, switch mic and try again.
Hope this is helpful! Reply if u can.

How do I record personal "greeting" message on Uniden DCX300?


1 Press and hold <greeting> until you hear a tone. Start recording your message immediately after you hear the tone end.

2 When you finish recording your message, press <greeting> or <play>. A tone sounds and your message plays back on the phone.

My Solara will Tx but not receive. One week prior, I had static on the receiver, then nothing. I swapped out with another of the same model and it worked fine. I wanted to eliminate antennae or pwr. supply...


The same thing happened to me, and I'm just hitting the two-year mark with this thing. I tested it using the aux speaker leads and that still works. So it is only the little front-panel speaker that is broken. And I checked the leads on that little speaker, and they seem fine. So it is the little speaker itself that broke. Easiest repair is to connect the aux leads (red and brown) to another speaker.

Uniden Oceanus not transmitting


You may have a sub-channel/privacy channel activated. Unless the person/s you are trying to talk to have the same channel and code set they will not be able to hear you. Check your manual for specific instructions on how to reset it to the default.

When I Press the mic to talk, others hear me key down, but no sound is transmitted


Hello lummox30,

Check you mic first to see if it is indeed working. Then if it is the below advice is applicable.
It sounds as if your TX audio amplifiers might be malfunctioning or the TCXO might be bad. If you have a background in Electronics I would suggest that you open up the unit and using a dummy load on the antenna check the two TX audio amps to see if when you key the mic and speak into it the amplifiers are amplifying your voice and sending it to the modulator. If the problem is not amps or the filters in between the amps, the modulator and the VCO buffer are suspect. If the TCXO is being modulated I would check the PPL IC and the Drive amp to see if the modulated signal is getting through. The last two checks I would perform are on the final amp and the TX switch prior to the antenna jack.

If you do not have a background in electronics, still check your mic, but the rest of the above advice can be done by a qualified Radio Technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Tuner Omits No Sound - Onkyo TX-SR605 7.1 Channels Receiver


Make sure your receiver is hooked up to proper AM and FM antennae. Try switching to AM, scan stations. If you hear AM static and/or weak signals the problem could be antennas are not hooked up. FM has AFT which blocks out weak or noisey stations and you wont hear anything without ant.
