By keeping the PTT button pushed, if you get a rapid beep and the red led is blinking, sounds like a bad battery. Batt voltage is a nominal 7.5v. anything lower than 6.25v and the low battery beep starts. A rapid beep, and no red led blinking, an error in the transmit freq.

What happened to my motorola sx710 2 way radios? The 1st one I pushed the center lower button and it started flashing and beeping. I pushed the same button on the 2nd one, same thing happened.


This button is the transmit call tone button. It is intended to ring the other radios in your group, much like a phone rings. It alerts others you are preparing to talk. Here is a link to the page with the user guides. See the SX700R for the most similar to your unit.

After cloning transmits only once


Out of habit, after I clone a radio, I turn it off before transmitting. I think it does a reset and saves the information. So, do that, turn it back on and try again. If the problem persists, try manually or with the software programming it. If it still will not save the information, the radio is in need of repair. Please post if this worked.

Can't transmit signal. Only get a 2 second beep when I push the transmit button


You have a poorly charged or bad battery. It takes more power to transmit than to receive. Usually the first thing you lose with a low, bad or poorly charged battery is transmit.

Try a known good battery in the radio. This should solve the problem. If not, check your battery contacts, as you may have one which is bad or not making good contact.

Clean your contacts with a pencil eraser to assure good connection with the charger.

Best regards.

Makes loud tone when pushing ptt button


If it's a distinct "tone" like 1000Hz, it's probably mis-programmed. Check www.mods.dk. You may find a manual there.

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.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'

From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.

You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.

You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.

It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.

Transmission problem


Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. Use electronic contact cleaner (spray type) on the PTT switch;
2. Use an external speaker/microphone and/or handsfree VOX headset
3. Replace the PTT switch. 4 solder points. Might not be easy but doable.

The last would require that you remove the defective PTT switch and use that as per sample when looking for replacement. Some printers uses the same type of switch. Familiarity with electronic components/circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would also be required.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

Muting the sound


Hi,

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.
