Question about Motorola Talkabout SX700 2-Way Radio

Garbled output from one SX700 radio

I have a pair of Motorola SX700 two way radios. One of them ("good one") seems to work just fine. The other one ("bad one") does not.

The good one transmits and receives normally and this is confirmed by its ability to interact with other two way radios on the same channel.

The bad one transmits but the signal is garbled and cuts out most of the time. It does, however, receive signals clearly.

Any ideas about what could be happening or how to fix the bad unit?

    Thanks for this comment. Is there a way to fix the conductor coils or is the unit beyond repair? About the range, I tested the unit at close distances (within a metre or few) and at much greater distances (up to over a kilometre). The results were identical. Does that help?

THE INDUCTOR COILS IS THE PROBLEM...

IF YOU HAVE THE INDUCTOR COILS EVEN DISTURBED TO ABOUT 1MM THE RANGE VARIES...

MAY BE THIS IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM

    It seems to have cold solders at printed circuit board or an ic problem. I dont think that a doityourself repair is possible.

    I suggest to take it to an authorized work shop for sure.

1 of my sx700 is not responding


I would suggest taking the radios back to a very basic programming with the interference eliminator set to zero or off, and any special features shut off. This would enclude Qt filter, call tones, iVox/Vox, vibra call, keypad tones, roger beep, enhanced scan, weather, etc. Set both radios to the same frequency and see if they work. If not, try switching the rechargeable battery from one radio to the other. Does the problem move to the other radio? If so, you need a battery. If neither of these helps, you likely need to replace the radio.

Motorola SX700 battery drainage w/tactical mike


It is likely the mic set you are using is not made for the SX700 radio, and is drawing too much power from the radio. Some audio accessories draw more power than others. It is possible your mic set is intended for a professional model radio which would supply more power to the device. You should check with Motorola to see if they have a mic set similar to go with your SX700 radio. Here is a link to their online store: http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola;jsessionid=130652F39955D9E9CA94908C45C73822.mot3?cmd=catDisplayStyle&entryPoint=adirect&catKey=601560&messageType=catDisplayStyle

I have 2 Motorola SX700 the black one static when i turn it on


Here are a few troubleshooting ideas. 1) Check your battery installation, and clean the contacts both of the radio and battery with a pencil eraser. 2) Install fresh batteries (or swap the rechargeable from your other unit) to see if it is a battery related issue. Static is a sign of a bad or low battery. 3) Turn your CODE on to a setting and continue using the radios as normal with a CODE to block the noise. It is possible due to dropage the radio may be more sensitive to RF in your enviroment than the other radio now. It could have a possible hairline crack in the componet board, or a cracked/damaged speaker.

Check your "code" setting. You may be on the same channel, but different codes. The code is the smaller number. Check your owners manual if you have one for resetting the radio to the factory default settings. This will clear any programming issues.

SX700 and T5522 talkabouts


Hello Walvis,

Based on a quick web search the Motorola SX700 appears to be a Family Radio Service unit for use in the USA and the Motorola T5522 appears to be PMR446 radio for use in the UK. While the radios are similiar, they don't operate on the same frequencies so they won't be able to communicate with eachother. Because both FRS and PMR446 are very similiar, Motorola often markets versions of the same radio (with slightly different model numbers) for each service.

Best Regards,
Ken
