Question about Motorola FV200AA GMRS/FRS 2-Way Radio Walkie Talkie with 5 mile Range

1 Answer

My Binatone Marina 300 Walkie talkies give hiss & noise. Pressing menue and up or menu alone makes no difference. How can I have a quiet radio except when called?

    Many thanks for the advice. It would appear that ideally I need to purchase radios with CTCSS. What you pay for is what you get!

Hello andy300,

Does the "RX" indicator show on the LCD screen constantly?

This radio does have a monitor function which disables the squelch control, allowing the user to listen to weak signals on the channel. Enabling this function in absence of any signals will cause the user to hear any background static or noise on the channel. You enable this function by pressing Menu + Up at the same time and disable the function by pressing Menu.

I assume that you are familiar with this function from the fact that you mention these keystrokes have no affect on the radio's behavior.

It is possible that the area you are using the radios in / channel you are using them on has a very high noise level. If the noise level is higher then the radio's automatic squelch threshold, then you would hear constant static, hiss, or white noise and the receive ("RX") indicator would show a constant signal. A local noise level can be caused by atmospheric conditions or very busy nearby adjacent-channel radio signals.

Try operating the radios on a different channel and see if that helps. If it is practical, you might try operating the radios in a different local area just to see if that has any effect at all. This would help you determine if the problem was a local one specific to the area you are operating in.

If it is local area related you might consider switching to a different model of radio that includes a Continuous Coded Squelch System (CTCSS) function (called "privacy codes" or "quiet tones" by come manufacturers. This function does not appear to be included in the model you are using and can help keep your radios silent unless you receive a call from another radio using the exact same privacy code.

If the problem persists regardless of channel or area, then you might have a problem with the radio that would require factory service.

Hope this helps. Best regards!
Ken

How to connect to a Samsung tv


If you have Samsung wireless and need to pair them, then select sound, addition setting arrow down to Bluetooth ( may not be visible until you arrow down). Follow those instructions.
below this you will find how I set up old headphones.
I have a Samsung SU 4K, I also have an old wireless head phones. I did not want to buy expensive Bluetooth.
how did I make these work. First I purchased a digital optical convertor for $20. Since my headphones are 2 channel, I connected the base (red/white) to the convertor. Then I had to access Samsung menu audio. The Samsung TV has the manual built into TV terrible. Since I did not want the TV speakers off I had to find how to enable the output to headphones base. Select sound from menu , then additional settings , set audio format to PCM, also HDMI to PCM.

My headphones will turn on or charge.


Try performing a system reset: While plugging in the AC charger, hold the power/pair button. The headphones will show a solid red or blue light when they have been successfully reset. If it's still giving you problems, contact your retailer for warranty replacement (1 year warranty) or call Plantronics at 800-544-4660 x5 x5538 for warranty service.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

2 With the headphones powered off, press and hold the Power/Pairing button until the LED indicator flashes blue and red.
3 Use the phone or device menu to search for the Bluetooth headphones and select 9xxBackBeat.
See your phone’s or device’s user guide for more information.

Motorola S805 headset worked fine with T60 laptop


Solution I found with the same devices is to properly par the devices.

Refer http://direct.motorola.com/ens/s805/QuickstartGuide.pdf

It basically states :

1.Ensure the headphones are turned off (L indicator light not blinking).
2.Press and hold L button. After about 6 seconds, the L indicator light becomes steadily lit.
3.Release the L button. The L indicator light remains steadily lit.

If the L indicator light is flashing or not steadily lit, repeat steps 1 through 3

Now on the T60:

Search for Bluetooth Devices as you would normally.
The T60 lists Bluetooth devices it finds.
Select Motorola S805.
Select OK or Yes to pair your headphones
with your phone.
Enter the passkey: 0000
Select OK.
When your headphones successfully pair
with your phone, the L indicator light
changes from steadily lit to rapidly flashing.

That's it next time you start a audio program on T60 output will be sent to Motorola Headphones

Hi, I purchased two units of logitech cordless


Your friend should be able to use the headset if your friend's computer has Bluetooth feature. THe computer will send and receive the Bluetooth signals with one transmitter/receiver like your computer does and then connect to the wireless lan with a different transmitter/receiver system on a different frequency. Just make sure your friend's computer has Bluetooth feature turned on and then setup the headset by the "pairing" process.

Blackberry 8100 bluetooth pairing problem


after you have paired the two devices... the blackberry that is receiving the file has to be in receiving mode.

Go to MEDIA or music icon on your handheld where all of your tones are, hit the menu key and choose "receive using bluetooth" then hit send on the other handheld.

and there ya go !!!

its just another added security feature by RIM to avoid unwanted stuff being transferred .
