Question about Midland LXT303-A 2-Way Radio
Both my radios show "low" on the screen even after replacing the batteries or after charging.
There could be three (3) reasons why the display shows the battery icon at the top left side of the LCD display:
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 rechargeable batteries need at least 12 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.
On the other hand, if the "low" is the "L" icon at the bottom right side of the display, this would indicate that the radio's transmit power setting (H/L - high/low). Transmit power level can only be changed in Channels 1-7 & 15-22. The radio will also auto change to lo power when batteries are weak.To switch to high power, press on the Menu button thrice or till "Pr" icon shows, press on the up/down to select H or L. To save & exit, momentary press the PTT.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
