It sounds like the radio may be in service or programming mode. Try turning it off, remove the battery, and reconnect the battery. Let me know if that solves the problem or not.

Radio Resets when PTT

You have a bad or poorly charged battery. Transmitting takes more energy than receiving, so it is the first to fail.

What is H and L push to talk?

You do not mention the type of Motorola radio so these comments will be generic in nature:

You need to have your radio turned off when plugging in a headset or audio device. Then press the PTT once after turning on the radio. This should aclimate the headset to the radio. If you were to plug in the headset with the radio turned on, it will appear to be in VOX. But will be stuck with the Transmit side open.

Your H and L PTTs are likely a high power 1-2 watts and a low power one half watt setting. Without the radio model and user guide, we cannot research this further.

Best regards.

Hi I have the T5622 talkabout with a PTT headset. I can transmit OK but I am not receiving anything other than a ''click'' when the other person transmits. I have tested the headset and I am able to recive...

Here a few thoughts which come to mind.
1. You do not mention whether the radios communicate with the headset no on the radio. I will at this point, assume they do.
2. Be certain to have the radio SHUT OFF when plugging in the audio device.
3. Check your VOX settings. It could be your radio is going into VOX mode.
4. Only use the PTT button on the headset. Do not press the PTT on the radio at any time while using the headset.
5. Check that you have CALL TONES shut off.
6. Lastly, if nothing else works, go back to a basic mode, and set both radios where there are no special features turned on. ie turn off CODE, Qt Filter, VOX, Call Tones, etc.
Here is a link to the manual:

Best regards.

Model: Motorola Talkabout 2-way radios

Typically you should be able to communicate by pressing the Push-to-Talk button (PTT). If it is necessary for you to press the musical note, you are using the Call Tone feature, which makes the other unit have a sound. This method is acceptable, but not necessary unless you want sound.

Here is a copy of the user guide:

Read the section on Call Tones and decide if this is the method you prefer. Otherwise, shut off the call tones and then you can simply use the PTT button to communicate.

You are correct, the radios must be set to the same Frequency. Plus, they must be on the same Code (interference eliminator code) and the Qt filter must be set the same on both units. Following setting everything to match one another your radios are ready to communicate.

Best regards.

I have a motorola t5720 and when I hit the mon key it makes no noise. I also do not have my manual. What do I do?

The monitor MON button may or may not emit noise. On some models of radios it will have "white noise" when pressed. On others it is silent. MON is used to be "polite" and see if anyone is talking before you transmit, assuming you have the interference code eliminator turned on. It temporarily shuts off your CODE. If your CODE is set to zero, you would never need the MON button, as you will hear all radio traffic anyway.

For simple operation of your radio, set all your radios identical to one another with the same frequency, code and Qt filter (if any). Use the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button to transmit, and release it when you are done talking to listen for a reply from a fellow radio user.

QT mode

Hello QT means Quiet Tone and is used to keep the radio muted until some call you using QT programmed on their radio.

To remove this feature press the Menu key for 3 seconds until the channel number blinks, then press menu agai until you reach the QT function (QT will Blinks or appear) on the display, then press up/down keys to turn it off, then ptt.

Good Luck

Muting the sound


The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Moto T5620 Buzz

check if that radio has the QT feature eneable, be sure that you are not making any feedback when you press the ptt. If one of the radios could have a problem be sure if the Buzz is transmited or received for the radios
