Hello gc0273,

Make sure that both radios are using the same Interference Eliminator Code. The situation you describe sounds like one radio has a Interfernce Eliminator Code activated and the other radio does not.

To access the Interfence Eliminator Code setting on this radio press and hold the MENU button until the code starts to flash, then use the + or - keys to adjust the setting and press the PTT to save it.

Best Regards

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Program the frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) to match one another. For simple operation set the code and Qt filter to off (zero).

My motorola xtr446 has an icon stuck on it and no one else can hear me when i speak out? how do i get rid of the icon? the icon is a mini walkie talkie


The mini walkie talkie emblem has a variety of meanings. If the emblem has parenthese around it your PTT (push to talk) button is depressed, stuck or partially depressed. If the emblem does not have parenthese your radio is in receive mode, awaiting a call.

It is possible you do not have your radio programmed identical to the other radio(s). Your frequency and interference code eliminator must be identical to those used in the other radios. Here is a link to the manual where you can check this http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/XTR446/Static%20Files/XTR%20Manual%20EU.pdf?localeId=103 Look around page 7 for instructions.

Also, if you find your radios are programmed identically, the other problem might be bad or low batteries, as it takes more energy to transmit than to receive.

Best regards.

Motorola t5720 walkie talkie not transmitting or receiving


To answer your questions: the airport xray should not have harmed them, and there is no reset button.

If you are using the radios with the rechargeable battery pack, it most likely needs replaced. They have a life expectancy of 12-18 months. Here is a link to the Motorola store: http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola;jsessionid=B7997F21F6A409F029D6DEC2CB194ADB.mot2?cmd=catDisplayStyle&entryPoint=adirect&catKey=601560&messageType=catDisplayStyle Clean your battery contacts both in the radio and on the battery with a pencil eraser.

There is also a chance the radios are not programmed correctly. Be certain the frequency, interference code eliminator and the Qt filter (if any) are set identical to one another. You indicate you have a manual, I will insert a link here for those who do not, who might read this: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Lastly, you may simply have one radio which has failed. It is not likely both would fail at the same time, short of battery issues. The three items listed above are suspect: batteries, programming or one has failed.

Best regards.

Pick up other walkie talkies


Should do. The available channels are defined by the regulator rather than by the manufacturer. Only thing to watch out for is similar looking devices designed to be sold into different markets (for instance, radios made to the European PMR446 standard work at a slightly lower frequency than those intended for sale in the US).
