Hello TSAworker,

I would definitely recommend against leaving the radio turned on while it is sitting in the charger. This can damage the radio and it can also contribute to decreasing the lifetime of the battery pack as well.

Whether or not the problems you are experiencing are related to leaving the radio turned on while it is charging is hard to say. I would recommend that you start by swapping the battery from the working radio into the non working one. If the problem is the battery, this should allow you to determine that and you can just simply get a replacement battery pack.

If the battery isn't the problem then the radio probably has a hardware problem that would require service. Given how affordable these kinds of two-way radios are, you are probably going to be better off just purchasing a replacement at that point.

Best Regards
Ken

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.

Flashing red light on radio where it thinks its recieving. Transmits fine but does not recieve.


Three things come to mind:
1) The radio is receiving, hence the light, but you may have a different PL code than the other radio and it is muting the transmission. Check your programming to be certain both radios are programmed alike. The red light indicates activity on your frequency.
2) Your radio may have a problem with the receive side of the radio or a bad speaker.
3) The transmitting radio may have a problem with transmit. This can be a sign of a bad battery. Swap batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery. (It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so loss of transmit is common with a bad battery.)
Best regards.

I have syma s032g flown 6 or 7 times no crashes but it cuts power randomly and not at full power are the moters getting hot and dropping power if so do they make heat sinks for this bird


Having the same problem, something with the reciever or transmiter. Flown about the same 10 times, this just started 2 days ago and had it a month or so. The s032g are not UBS charged. I put new rechagable batties in the controller, nothing, took it apart nothing, unraveled the reciever wire a little (3") and got it going then this morning same problem. I am going to open it up and inspect the reciever to see it the wire came loss. I think it is the transmiter, it seems to happen when lowering the throtle, yellow lite on heli blinks and comes back after drop throttle to 0.

I have a motrola cp110 that will recieve transmissions, but will not itself transmit. When i press and hold the transmit button, it lights to show that it should be transmitting, but does not transmit any...


Check your programming, and also check your battery. It will take more energy to transmit than to receive. Sometimes this is simply an indication of a bad battery. If this does not solve the problem, you might want to have your radio serviced. (Current flat rate repair is around $85 at dealers where this model is repaired.)

best regards.

Submerged one t5710 unit crossing a river; no longer transmits.


Probably not.

The electronics in the transmit / recieve circuitry (RF = radio frequency) work very differntly from those in the display and control circuits, which prob ablyexplains why the display works, but not the rest.

The major problem with water in RF circuits is that even after it dries out, it leaves a residue, or worse still some corrosion, which adversly affects the tuning of the RF circuits.

It may be worth trying to dry it out a bit more - put it somewhere warm but not humid like near but not too close to a central heating boiler, for a few days. However, I suspect it is now beyond repair.

Cant transmit


Hello Darren, Yes it sounds like the mic is wired bass ackwards,,! A cobra 25 mic wiring is
PIN #1- Shield or ground wire
PIN#2- Audio or Transmit modulation
PIN #3- Transmit or Dead Key
PIN #4- Receive Audio.
When your keying the mic, the RX wires are being connected to make the RX work,,,
*** Let me know how you get along with it. Either buy a new mic wired for your radio or you or someone comfortable with soldering needs to resolder the correct wires back on the mic plug,,,Like I said, let me know and have a great day,, Mechanic is back quiet!
