Portable motorola gp 340 can receive but cannot transmit


Don't know your capabilities but if it were me I would open the phone and check the contacts for transmit button. Sometimes contacts get corroded and need cleaning or it just may be no connection at all and a adjustment of the contacts will resolve the issue.

THE DISPLAY IS SCRAMBLED AND THE RADIO WILL NOT READ OR WRITE ON A MOTOROLA M1225 RADIO


You have a corrupted codeplug, most likely. The radio will needed to be serviced by Motorola or a service facility with the ability to wipe the radio and reinstall the firmware and codeplug.

If this is a new install, it is likely noise from the vehicles electrical system scrambling the processor of the radio. Put a filter on the power leads and check your install.

T8500 blinks off and back on often when transmitting


It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. It is possible you have an old or defective battery pack, a bad connection to the battery, or your PTT button is not working properly. On this unit, the internal PTT button can begin to be bent further in from repeated use, or pressing too firmly.

As far as a more durable/reliable radio, you might want to look at radios in the business division such as the Motorola CP110, BPR40 or the CP150. These business level radios are built to work a 40+ hour work week, and are much more reliable than the consumer division products, which are intended for occasional usage.

Motorola T5420 Transmit Problem


Here are some troubleshooting thoughts:

1. Is your battery indicator showing at least 2-3 bars? (Battery Note: Your rechargeable batteries may fail due to setting without use for a long period of time. They need replaced every 12-14 months usually. A good tip is to charge them once a month to keep the chemical in the battery active.)

2. Check to see your Qt noise filter is shut off. Refer to page 22 of the owners manual. It is possible you have some radios set to Y and others to N. To assure good communications you should set all of them to N.

3. With your radios set to interference code zero, place your radios one at a time in scan mode, while you transmit/talk on one individual radio. See if any of the radios receive. Do this with each radio individually to see if you are transmitting at all. NOTE: This test will determine if you have any ability to transmit. If you do not receive any sound on the 3 radios setting in scan mode, the individual radio you are testing will not transmit.

Motorola and Kenwood compatibility....


Hello!! First of all, any radio in the right frequency will work with any other, to work just need the following features: -Frequency, 154.700 which is correct as you said. - the Squelch code, this could be PL or DPL. The XV2100 has a table of codes that you can try, as you dont know this code form the Kenwood, you will need to check one by one. If you have the chance to send the Kenwood to some to "Read" the radio parameters( freq.,Code, ETc) you can look those parameters on the XV. Hope this can help, any comments neto-rola@hotmail.com Good Luck
