Question about Motorola TalkAbout T6530R (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Can't get any reception or sound

One of my devices works with sound, noises, etc., but the other one just gives me nothing. I let the charge go completely down to no charge, and still nothing. Trying to get any transmission, but nada. Any suggestions. Haven't used them extensively so it could be operator error.

    Great idea, to try. I just tried the battery reset for 10 minutes. Still no sound. I'm afraid it might a hardware fault??? I'll leave the units all day uncharged and give it a whirl.

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls remove the battery from the compartment. Most Motorola GPRS/FRS would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when un-powered (not only drained) for a considerable period of time (from a few minutes to a couple of hours).

Pls post back for any development(s) or even the lack of it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

BPR40 Receiving a static reception when someone is talking

Several things need to be checked. Fully charged battery. Antenna, make certain it s tight and unbroken. Wiggle the antenna while receiving, if reception improves, it is the antenna or the antenna jack. Then wiggle the on/off vol switch, same thing, if reception improves, it is broken or needs to be resoldered. Then I check the speaker. Speakers gather metal particles, as they get more and more, the speaker distorts and it sounds like static. Use a powerful magnet, run it over the speaker grill and see if anything comes out. I put plastic wrap on the magnet for easy cleaning. It could still be a bad speaker. Last, I check programming. All of this is done at our shop regularly and I suspect most radio shops follow the same procedures, maybe in a different order. Post if this helps or not.

If it was working before you re-programmed it, it is possible that your programming did not take. Recommend reprogramming it using Chirp (available for free on Internet). Make sure your programming cable works and software is talking to the radio. If you downloaded the previous software program from the radio, make the appropriate changes and then upload.

If this is not working, please provide info about programming cable and software being used.

Good luck,

One of the radios is not receiving, but always playing noise sound


It may be a Motorola, but it is mass produced in CHINA, and in there lies the problem...

Nothing made in China has been successful to us english speaking peeoples.

I've answered numerous queries regarding chinese made Toy radios, that fail to meet our standards of quality, but we pay a small price for these, therefore you only get what you pay for.

Spend $150.00 or more and you get something half decent with backup, if something should go wrong, not so with these little monsters.

Like many other Chinese made radios, they fail all too soon and not much can be done to remedy the failures.

My advice is look on ebay, and be prepared to pay a little extra for a 2-way made anywhere else, but China.

ebay prices for new equipment are usually cheaper than retail, so give it a whirl.

IC-736 total failure whilst on air, fuse OK, nothing smelt burning etc, not over heated, no voltage surge, SWR was moderate but protected by APC circuit. Totally dead now.

Hi Jack, (No Pun Intended)

As this is such a fine radio, I would take it to the radio doctor for a once over check-up, The technician will find the problem and give you an estimate of cost to repair the fault, Take care of you radio, it's a great unit that should give you many more years of service.

I hope this advice is of help to you.

TS-450S Noise Blanker, No 1 & No 2 neither has any effect on noise

The noise blanker settings on the TS-450S (and S/AT) are true noise blankers and should not be thought of as a DSP device or something that they are not, like a notch filter or IF shift and etc. They will do a fine job of eliminating ignition noise as well as eliminating the electric mixer or blender noise from the kitchen...... however they will not remove static crashes or quieten those atmospheric noises on 75 meters during summer time thunderstorm season activity.

Hope this helps!

Does not receive FM signals anymore, just noise.

The T6310 is a disposable radio. Assuming the programming is correct, and matching on each of your radios, and you are using good batteries, there is nothing which can be done to correct the problem. We would however, suggest you double check your programming, and also the age of your batteries.

Sidenote: Rechargeable batteries only last 18-24 months before they begin to fail. Signs of failure can include, but are not limited to, poor transmit, intermittent transmit, white noise, squelching sounds. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so your transmit would be the first to go.

VOX Transmit is "pulsing". Also, no wx channel reception
