From what I have read, there is no setting to disable the PTT
If you don't plan on using your PTT in the future.
Look for the PTT button on the left side of the phone.
Take a pin slide it under the button and pop it off.
On the back of the button, there is a little tab.
Take a nail clipper and shorten the tab just a bit.
Snap the button back on the phone.
With the tab shortend, the PTT will not activate when pushing or hitting the button.

SOURCE: How do you disable the PTT button on the Samsung

Stick your fingernail or a thin blade between the button cover toward the front side of phone. Pry it out just like would the charge port cover. Cut off the protruded part of the button cover (this is the pusher stick that activates the real button), and then press the button back in place.

Now the button is no more but looks functional, the only caveat is that if you suddenly decided you want PTT to work, your button is dead unless you can aquire a new button cover somehow.

PTT button on RDV 2020 is hard to push


This problem is typically caused by small component behind the PTT button being cracked or broken. The RDX series radios respond best if the user presses the PTT button in the center versus the top or bottom sections of the button. Once the button becomes hard to press it is best to get the radio repaired. Commonly if the radio remains in use the PTT issue will get worse as the internal PTT component is pressed harder, pushing it further away from the outside button and eventually loosening it from the component board.

Best regards.

PTT is a feature of the phone so the user can make use of the mobile phone like a walkie talkie or radio. This can only be deactivated if your network support such service. This varies per region as well. You can check the settings of the phone under tools -->settings-->network-->PTT-->disable.Might aswell consult your provider if they support this kind of service so you can maximize the usage of your phone.

Is it possible to fix a non working PTT button on a RDV2020


The PTT button is one of the common failure parts. It is replaceable, but best done by an experienced repair center.

The following things can happen over time:
1) The internal PTT switch can wear out from frequent usage.
2) The user begins to press harder to get the PTT to work, bending the PTT switch further away from the external button the user is pressing.
3) Plastic diaphram, if any present, gets broken in half, and the external PTT switch doesn't work anymore.

Several companies offer flat rate repair on this style unit for around $85.

Best regards.

WHEN I USED ACC2 PIN 11 AND PIN 12 FOR INPUT AUDIO BUT THERE IS NOTHING MODULATION COMING OUT.\r\n WHAT IS SOLUTION MANY THANKS YE7YE


I too had a similar issue, I found this:

For the TS570, the audio input on ACC2 is ONLY active when the TNC PTT line is connected to ground. This also disables the front panel microphone input (and the digital storage unit). There is another PTT line on the ACC2 connector which is essentially paralleled with the microphone switch. This is useful for a footswitch when running SSB contest style, but cannot be used for PSK input through ACC2. The RS232 interface can be used to turn on the transmitter for regular microphone audio, but not for ACC2 input audio.
The bottom line is, in order to use the ACC2 audio input for psk, you MUST use the ACC2 TNC PTT signal to transmit. The microphone PTT, the front panel "transmit" button, and the RS232 transmit command will not work.
