The radios charge up good and everything seems to work fine, except I can't change the channel. The channel buttons on both radios are not working on both radios which seems very weird.

They must be locked. To unlock, usually you press and hold a button with a "key" symbol. Model and brand would help a lot to "unlock" the mystery.

Cannot set interference eliminator code on my second t5710

First check to see that your keypad is unlocked. You can lock/unlock the keypad by holding in the PTT button for three seconds. You will see a little lock icon when it is locked.

To set the code for a channel:

1. Press Menu until the CODE number begins to flash.

2. Press the + or - to select the desired code.

3. Press the PTT to save the code.

Note: You can set a different code ofr each channel using this procedure.

Zero (0) equals OFF.

If you continue to have problems, set both radios back to a very basic setting with all special featured turned off and see if you can communicate. Then add the desired features back in one at a time until you have what you'd like on both radios.

Best regards.

How to unlock one of the units?

To turn the lock off and on just press the "Menu" button and hold it until you hear a beep. It is then locked or unlocked. You'll see a "lock" icon in the screen when it's locked.

I have hx 460 but no manual. It is in the locked status and I only have access to channel 16. How do I unlock.

Most of the time if your handheld is in a locked status, there will be a single button that needs to be held for usually about 3 to 5 seconds to unlock it. Some Standard radios have a botton with a Key symbol. If your's doesn't have a botton like this, try holding each botton for 3 to 5 secs (1 at a time).

It's Locked

Looks like you have it in the locked position. We need to unlock it and set the pl codes and channel number the same as the other one.
Locking the Keypad
To avoid accidentally changing your radio settings, press and hold for 3 seconds
or until displays. You can turn the radio on and off, adjust the volume, receive,
transmit, send a call tone, and monitor channels. All other functions are locked.
To unlock the radio, press and hold for 3 seconds or until is no longer

Try reading this manual on page 18 to unlock the radio you will find the manual
the last link on the left, a new page will pop up, go down the page a little and click on download pdf 3m.

Hope this helps some, I lock my radios alot so they dont change if I bump them.

Take Care,

AXU4100 Manual or help


On a Motorola AXU Series (including the 4100):
1. To unlock, press the “D” button for about a second or until the circle is gone. The circle with the line thru is the keyboard lock indicator;
2. To change channel, you need to press either the arrow left or right in Normal Mode;
3. To change PL (assigned to a channel), don’t think this can be done by the user
4. To change Ch. 1 from 464.500 MHz (PL-67.0) to 463.525 (PL-136.5), don’t think this can also be done by the user.

Even the built-in Programming Mode Parameters do not have this option to change assigned frequencies and PLs. An external programming software using a PC may or may not allow this.

These radios came pre-loaded with its channels assigned with specific frequencies/PLs. As used in a Motorola AXU411, they are:

Channel Frequency PL
1 464.500 67.0
2 464.500 77.0
3 464.500 88.5
4 464.500 179.9
5 464.500 None
6 464.550 67.0
7 464.550 82.5
8 464.550 94.8
9 464.550 179.9
10 464.550 None

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
