Every once in a while when you hold the PTT button it just beeps and does not open the channel. For a little while it works and then it doesn't.

This would be the battery indicator. You need to charge or replace your battery.

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.

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

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.

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.

To turn the tlk confirmation tone off... it does not work holding the - sign and turning it on now what?


Just read your message a second time. Is the sound following the release of the PTT button? If so, it is indeed the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone). If holding in the minus button while turning the radio on does not turn it off, there might be something wrong with the radio, such as a one of the other buttons being slighty stuck. Or you have your keypad locked. To unlock the keypad hold the menu button in for 3 seconds until the lock icon disappears.

Another thing which will make a noise during or after transmitting is the low battery beep. You might check your batteries. Old, bad, poorly charged or defective batteries can cause this.

fyi: Some users might think the Call Tones are the Roger Beep.

Lastly, there is a PTT Timeout beep which will occur if you hold the PTT in for more than 60 sec while talking.

Hope one of these items is of help to you.

They just don't seem to work!


I have a new pair of 5500. It seems not working, but I discover that using channel 1 in one and channel 2 in the other they work, the same if using channel 2 in one I have to select 3 in the other, it is like a frecuency error. Maybe is the same with yours.
