Hello jeebe,

On Motorola professional radios the double beep is usually an indication that the channel you are trying to use isn't actually active in the radio. These radios have to be professionally programmed by a two-way radio dealer using special software and cables. If the radio hasn't been programmed, or if one or more channels did not have a frequency assigned to them, then the radio would behave as you describe.

I’d recommend trying to use a different channel. If you are encountering the same problem on all the channels then it’s possible that the radio either wasn’t properly programmed or may have a hardware issue that would require service.

Best Regards,
Ken

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

When I press PTT the walkie talkie turns off


Dead, shorted, not fully charged, bad battery connection, or bad battery.

I have a motorola cp 110 walki talkie .red light comes on but no beep or commuunication


If you have no initialization beep when you turn the radio on, it is likely the radio is in need of repair. Immediate things which come to mind are a sticking PTT button, something stuck in audio accessory jack, or a bad speaker. You might check the radio using a second radio and see if you can transmit.

best regards.

FCC ID: K7GFV300 one of the radios doesn't output sound, or the other one doesnt transmit it. i can hear the little buzz when you press the PTT button


Check your programming first to see if the radios match perfectly. Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/FV300%2001-11-08.pdf

Next, check the battery pack in the radio that is not transmitting. A low or bad battery can prevent a radio from transmitting, as it takes more power to transmit than to receive.

Lastly, check the mic hole to see if it is covered or has debris.

Best regards.

Motorola CP 100 tx problem


This may be an indication of a low or defective battery. It takes more energy to transmit (Tx) than to receive (Rx). Try a known good battery in the radio and see if the problem still exists.

If it does turn out to be the battery, you may need to replace the battery, or you may simply need to clean the battery contacts on the bottom of the radio to make better contact with the charger. You can clean the radio and charger contacts with a pencil eraser.

If this does not solve the problem, your radio may be in need of repair. Usually around $69 (US). Common failure parts on the CP100 include an intermittent push-to-talk internal button (PTT).

Best regards.

Hello I just bought a Motorola 53725 SLK Headset with Swivel Boom Mic (Black) for my Motorola FV200AA 5-Mile and I have a problem to hear. They can hear me but I cant


Two things to check. Make certain you are plugging in the headset with the radio shut OFF. Also be certain the headset is plugged in all the way. You should feel a slight click when it is seated properly.

If the headset has an in-line PTT, don't alternate between it and the one on the radio. If there is no in-line PTT, use the PTT on the radio unless you have your radio set for VOX.

If using VOX mode, do not touch the PTT at all once you turn the radio on. One thing to keep in mind if using VOX, the receiver will pick up any ambient noise around you and think it is voice and keep your radio locked into transmit. Vox only works well in a somewhat quiet environment.

I've probably given you more info than needed, but wanted to cover all the bases.

Hisses/squeals when transmitting


Check the input voltage into the radio while in transmit. The voltage maybe dropping as you go into transmit which causes it to drop into receive. That in turn allows the voltage to come back up. With your finger still on the PTT it tries to transmit again, etc. This could cause a feedback squeal and other symptoms.

Motorola T5100 Radio


Setting and Transmitting Call Tones
Your radio can transmit different call tones to other radios in your group so you can alert them that you want to talk.
To set a call tone:
1. With the radio on, press MENU 3 times. The current call tone setting flashes and displays.
2. Press + or - to change and hear the call tone.
3. Press MENU or PTT to set the new call tone or turn feature off.

Muting the sound


Hi,

The sound produced by a Motorola radio when the mike is keyed refers to the "Transmitting Call Tone" which is another feature other than the "Interference Eliminator" or the "Roger Beep" feature.

On most Motorola GMRS/FRS TalkAbout radios, setting the "Call Tone" to 0 disables the feature. This is done with the radio ON by pressing on the "Menu" button 3 times which will result in the display showing the current Call Tone setting (flashing) and the letters CA; pressing on the <- or +> buttons will change selection (you will also hear the different Tones), select 0 (it may be up to 5 or 10 depending on the version). Press on the "Menu" or "PTT" button to set, save and exit.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
