Motorola T5210 does not receive

I have a pair of Motorola T5210 Walkabout radios. One no longer receives; it shows a quick flashing indicator light which seems to imply a busy channel. There is also a very faint squelch type tone - I have to hold it to my ear to hear this, and it is independent of the volume control. Is this repairable at a reasonable cost?

Are you sure that the radios share the same sub audible tone? Look at your owner manual for the section dealling with (and different people call it different things) ie: CTCSS, DCS, Private tone, code...etc... make sure that the tones are the same on both radios... this is usually the smaller number on the display.

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.

The green light that indicates that some one it talking and goes red when you key always slays on


This is an indication of a receiver problem. Two things cause this. The receiver needs to be realigned or you have bad ceramic filters that need to be replaced.

Instruction manual


Here is a link to the 5200 series user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5XxX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Check your Frequency, interfernence Code eliminator and Qt filter (if any). These all should match each other on all your radios.

Another issue which will cause a radio to receive but not transmit is a low or bad battery. It takes more energy to transmit, than to receive.

Best regards.

Very low volume on T5210


Sorry to hear of your difficulty. There are a few things which come to mind. First, if you have only two radios, check the good radio to see if anything is plugging or covering the mic hole. Then if the good radio is not the problem, check the bad radio for debris or something covering the speaker holes. If this does not reveal a problem, the next issues are possible, but not resolveable: You either have a bad volume potentiometer (internal volume device) or your speaker is bad.
