This is usually a power problem - if the transmitter cannot draw enough power to operate, it shuts the radio off to prevent circuitry damage. Make sure that you're using fresh, fully charged batteries, and that the contacts on the batteries and inside the radio are clean and free of corrosion.

    If the batteries are discharging rapidly they are either unable to accept/hold a charge due to corrosion on the contacts, or they have passed their useful service life and it's time to replace them.

PTT button on RDV 2020 is hard to push


This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.

Best regards.

Cant sync radios


The MU21CV radio is user programmable. Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT button to count it up to the frequency you desire. Press the smaller monitor button to lock in your freq. Then the radio will announce the code number. Once again using the PTT button count it up to your desired code or the word OFF if you are not wanting a code. Then press the monitor button to lock in the code. At this point you can turn off the radio and turn it back on normally (without holding in the PTT). Your radios should be programmed to match one another. If you are still having trouble you may have a radio which needs repair or a bad/low battery.
Best regards.

T8500 Backlight


Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage-new/manuals/Moto/T8500%20English%20only%20June5.pdf

I did not find anything mentioned about the backlight function. However, on other TalkAbout models the backlight will automatically illuminate when you press any of the buttons other than the PTT and the musical note, and then the light will remain on for 5 seconds before automatically turning off. I do not know if this is the same on the T8500.

Best regards.

How do i change the frequency on a mototrola sp21 from 12.5khz to 25khz?


The SP21 is PTT programmable.
1) Hold in the PTT while turning on the radio. Let go when the female voice begins to speak. It will announce the frequency number. You can use the PTT to walk through the 35 to 40 frequencies available. Then when you have reached your desired frequency. Press the MONITOR button to lock it in. (small button on the PTT).
2) Then your radio will announce the PL code. Using the same method of pressing the PTT you can walk yourself through the 38 possible PL codes. Press the MONITOR button to lock in your preferred code.

To answer your question concerning 12.5k to 25k selection. You should at this point in time be changing to 12.5k (narrowband). All VHF and UHF users are required to move to narrowband by Jan. 2013.

In the VHF SP21 frequencies 1-16 are 25k, and 17-37 are 12.5k.

In the UHF SP21 frequencies 1-16 are 25k, and 17-40 are 12.5k.

Best regards.

Is it possible to fix a non working PTT button on a RDV2020


The PTT button is one of the common failure parts. It is replaceable, but best done by an experienced repair center.

The following things can happen over time:
1) The internal PTT switch can wear out from frequent usage.
2) The user begins to press harder to get the PTT to work, bending the PTT switch further away from the external button the user is pressing.
3) Plastic diaphram, if any present, gets broken in half, and the external PTT switch doesn't work anymore.

Several companies offer flat rate repair on this style unit for around $85.

Best regards.

They used to talk to one another but now they don't


Here's your help:

Read out one of your radios by holding in the PTT while turning on the radio. It will announce the Frequency. Then press the Monitor Button and it will announce the code. Press the monitor button again, to leave the code set, and then shut off the radio.

On the second radio: Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT to get to the number you need to match the first radio. To lock in the setting press the smaller button, known as the Monitor Button.

This will make the radio announce the private line code number. Using the PTT set this to the code number of your first radio, then press the Monitor Button to lock in your code.

Shut the radio off and turn it on again to begin use.
