This is almost always a battery problem. Make sure that your batteries are fresh and fully charged -- they routinely start to lose their ability to accept and hold a charge after a year or so. Also check the battery terminals and the contacts inside the radio for corrosion, and clean them if necessary.

I hope this helps.

My T5950 won't stop beeping when I push the PTT button. I tried holding the PTT in when I turn the unit on and that didn't stop it.


Very likely it is the battery. Beeping means not enough power especially when transmitting. Try charging the battery again, try transmitting again and plan on new batteries. They "wear out" even when not in use.

Can I turn off the beep on the cxt195?


You mean the "roger beep"? You can try the steps below from this site>>http://science.opposingviews.com/turn-roger-beep-off-motorola-walkie-talkie-10001.html
Step 1
Turn the Motorola Talkabout two-way radio on by pressing the "Power" button.
Step 2
Hold down the "Menu" button for several seconds until an icon appears on the screen. "On/Off" begins to flash on the screen.
Step 3
Press the "Minus" button to turn the "Roger" beep off. If you want to turn it back on, press the "Plus" button.
Step 4
Tap the "PTT" button to save the change. You may also press "Menu" to save the change and completely exit Menu mode

Hope it helps...

Motorola talkabout t5710s won't recieve


Hi,

The question I would ask is:

How close are the two radios to each other when you contact from one to the other?

A distance between the two radios of about 10-15ft, preferably more is desirable to achieve audible results, having the closer than 10ft, causes one to cancel the other out, so you either hear static, feedback or nothing.

Try 15ft of more distance between radios and see what happens.

Pls feel free to post the results here on the two way radio forum, as I'm interested to find out what happens.

Cheers, Peter@FixYa Team

I bought additional kenwood tk 2100 radios and they are not sending the signal to my existingones. The fcc numbers and interior tk numbers are the same. How to I get them on the same frequency.


To change the channel frequencies on your TK2100, simply press and hold the PTT switch ("talk button") and Monitor key, then turn the power on. Now press the PTT switch again. The light should change from orange to red and a beep should sound. Next, adjust the channel switch to the channel you wish to program. Now simply press the PTT button to choose between 4 to 8 possible frequencies, depending on your model.
You can find the manual and frequency graphs here: http://www.heritageresale.com/documents/TK2100OwnersManual.pdf

Walkie talkies model gmr325-2 ic;513C-UT914 HOW DO I GET THESE TO TRANSMIT, MY HUSBAND HAS CANCER AND WE NEED THEM IN OUR BEDROOMS AND WHEN I AM OUTSIDE, TK U, TK U


In order to get the most out of your new radio, read this reference guide completely before attempting to operate the radio.

Turning the Radio On and Adjusting the Volume

1) Press and hold the key to turn the radio ON.

2) To change the volume level press the volume/monitor up or down key to increase or decrease the volume level.

3) Press and hold the key to turn the radio OFF.

Adjusting the Sound (Key Beeps)

Your radio emits a beep each time one of the keys (except for the PTT button and call key) is pressed.
The sound of the Key Beep will increase or decrease depending on the volume level setting.

To turn OFF this beep:

Press and hold the call key while turning ON the radio.

To turn ON this beep:

Turn the radio OFF and ON again.

Choosing a Channel

Your GMR325-2 radio has 22 channels you can use to talk to others. In order to speak to someone,
each of you must be set to the same channel.

To choose a channel:

Press the channel/scan up or down key to increase or decrease the channel number displayed.

Channel Scan Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio has a channel Scan feature that allows you to easily Scan all 22 channels. When an active channel is detected, the unit will pause on that channel until the channel is clear. Then after a 2 second delay, the unit will continue scanning.

Pressing PTT button while the Scan is paused on a channel will allow you to transmit on that channel.

To turn ON channel scanning:

Press and hold either the channel/scan up or down key. The channel number on the display
will rapidly cycle through the channels.

To turn OFF channel scanning:

Press either the channel/scan up or down key.

Talking on Your Radio

To talk to others using the radio:
1) Press and hold the PTT button and speak in a clear, normal voice about 2-3 inches away from the microphone.

While you are transmitting the tx icon is displayed. To avoid cutting off the first part of your transmission, pause slightly after pressing the PTT button before you start talking.

2) When you are finished speaking, release the PTT button.You can now receive incoming calls. While receiving, the rx icon is displayed.

Transmitting a Call Alert Tone

Your GMR325-2 radio is equipped with a call tone that will be transmitted when the call key is pressed.

To transmit the call alert tone, press the call key.

The tone will automatically be transmitted for a fixed length of time.

Auto Squelch Feature

The GMR325-2 is equipped with an automatic squelch system which shuts off weak transmissions
and unwanted noise due to terrain conditions or if you have reached your range limit.

Monitor Mode Feature

Your GMR325-2 radio allows you to listen for weak signals on the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON monitor mode:

Press and hold the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will blink.

To turn OFF monitor mode:

Press the volume/monitor up or down key. The rx icon will stop blinking.

Automatic Power Save Feature

Your GMR325-2 has a unique circuit designed to dramatically extend the life of the batteries. If there is neither transmission nor an incoming call within 2 seconds, your radio switches to the Power Save mode. The radio is still able to receive transmissions in this mode.

KEYLOCK ON/OFF

Press and hold the call key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display.
To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call again.

Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

ROGER BEEP

Roger Beep is a BEEP that is sent to notify the end of transmission.
Roger Beep can be heard through the speaker when Key Beep is on.
Roger Beep is transmitted even if key beep is turned off. However Roger Beep will not be heard from the speaker.

To turn OFF Roger Beep: Press and hold the channel/scan up Key while turning on the radio.
