Question about Two-Way Radios
How can I test the microphone element in an amateur radio microphone?
The problem you are experiencing is not a mic problem, or the problem would also be associated with the two-way radio portion of the radio. Your radio is either in need of repair or you have a bad, low or defective battery. It takes more energy to transmit or use the unit as a phone than to simply receive.
If your radio is under warranty (less than 1 yr old) you can return it to the place of purchase for warranty replacement or service. After warranty repair is also available through Motorola's factory depot. Ask your local dealer.

This is commonly a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. Check your charger, battery and battery contacts. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser. Try recharging the battery, making certain the radio is turned off while on the charger. If this does not solve the problem, try swapping batteries with a known good unit. If the swapped battery solves the problem, you know you need to replace your battery and/or charger.
If the problem remains with the swapped battery, you know you have a radio problem. In this case, you will need to look at the battery contacts on the radio, where the battery meets the radio and see if you see a problem there. OR a problem with how the battery fits to or in the radio.
If it is a radio problem, you may need to see your local Kenwood dealer for assistance.
