Hello mtnrvr,

The Motorola TalkAbout radios, especially the FR50 and FR60, are notorious for making a variety of beeps when you push buttons and activate various functions of the radio.

The beeps can be helpful when you are trying to operate the radio in low-light situations. But they can also be mildly irritating.

Sadly most models of TalkAbout do not provide any way to disable the beeps. I'd suggest not using this particular radio for covert surveillance missions.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken

How do you stop the beeps after pushing PTT button?


We have been unable to locate a manual for the TalkAbout 250, but have one for the T280, which is one generation newer. Here is a link: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T280_User_Manual.pdf

The instructions say to hold the monitor button in while turning on the radio to turn the Alert Tones on/off.

Best regards.

When I press the push to talk button on my Motorola talkabout 250 there is a constant beeping noise and I cannot transmit


Generally a constant beep is the sign of a low or bad battery. However, it is noted the TalkAbout 250 is operated with AA batteries, and it is likely you have considered this and changed batteries. You might check your battery contacts, and clean them with a pencil eraser to assure they are making good connection. Otherwise, you may have a failing radio.

Best regards.

Have Talkabout 250 and want to turn off the beeping. any ideas


The following instructions are for the T289, which is very similar to the T250. It is possible they will work to turn off your beeps.


Alert Tones

The Alert Tones (beeps) on the Talkabout radios are set at a fixed volume

level and cannot be lowered. However, Alert Tones can be disabled. When

Alert Tones are disabled, the radio will receive messages at the volume

setting you've selected, but you will not hear beeps when you press control

buttons.

Disabling Alert Tones:

1. Hold down the Monitor button while you turn radio on.

2. To re-activate Alert Tones, turn the radio off, then on again while holding
the Monitor button down.

Motorola talkabout 250 beeps when the talk button is pushed


The radio has possibly been damp or wet. Take the battery pack out of the radio and allow the radio to dry, or to speed the process try using a blow dryer on a low setting.

Check your programming and be certain your large and small numbers match one another when you get ready to try the radio again.

Here is a manual which most closely matches your radio type: http://www.usersmanualguide.com/motorola/2-way_radio/t280

Hi,

In most Motorola T5XXX series/models, pressing the + button while powering on enables/disables the roger beep (release of PTT button).

Good luck and kind regards.

Neither radio will receive or send


The radio probably needs reprogrammed to match the other units. Check your owners manual for instructions.
