Question about Motorola Talkabout FR60 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Using headset jack - unit always transmits

When a plug for a headset or even ear buds is inserted into the headset jack, the unit contiunually transmits. This even happens if a new plug from radio shack with nothing connected is plugged into the jack.

Try plugging in headset BEFORE turning on radio. You should see the word VOX (not iVOX) on your display. At least this is what works for me.

How do I stop my binatone mr 250 transmitting when earplugs are connected?


The jack is probably for the ear phones and the microphone, you will need compatible accessories for that radio.

Active headset


Your headset is operating in VOX mode. This sometimes will happen if the headset is plugged into the radio when the radio is still turned on. Try unplugging the headset, turn on the radio, then talk using the PTT on the radio. Shut the radio back off. Then insert your headset plug, being certain it is seated (click) into place. Then turn the radio back on and see if it works without VOX. If you are still having problems, press the PTT on the radio one more time and see if it shuts it off.

Not receiving


Hello
I understand this ICON 802 marine radio will not receive.
There are two things to check for. First check the speaker jack on the back side of the receiver also check the speaker plug and the connections. Make sure that the wires are soldered properly. If you have access to an ohm meter connect it to the plug leading to the speaker, it should measure 4-8 ohms. If the speaker checks ok then check the headphone jack on the front panel. The jack has a contact switch internality to disconnect the external speaker whenever a headset is plugged in. You can clean it by using a electronic contact cleaner spray a little into the jack and plug in a headset and turn the plug back and fourth. If this doesn't work, it would be inside the unit itself.
Hope this helps
Bruce

Issue using headset with motorola talkabout md200


You may have one of the following issues:
1) Defective headset or non-compatible headset. Try the headset on the other radio to see if you experience the same problem.
2) Headset is not plugged in all the way, until you feel a click.
3) Your radio's jack is wobbled out, or defective. Try moving the plug in or out slightly in the jack to see if you can find a sweet spot. Jacks can be worn due to plugging and unplugging chargers or audio devices repeatedly.

Tips:
1) Just as you have been doing, make certain the radios are turned off before plugging in any audio device.
2) Once you plug in the device and turn on the radio, press the PTT button once to initialize the PTT capability.
3) If you continue to have difficulties, reprogram the radios back to a basic operation, shutting off any special features such as call tones, Qt filtering, interference eliminators, weather radio capabilities, etc. Sometimes going back to this basic mode will alleviate the problem. Then one by one you can add back in the features you desire.

Hope some of this helps. Best regards.

Motorola talkabout MR350 headset only sends audio and can not recieve


Likely not compatible. One thing to try is to make certain the transmitting unit is turned OFF when you initially plug in the headset. Sometimes if a headset is plugged into a radio when it is already ON, the headset will appear to be in VOX (voice activated) mode and will not allow the user to receive. Also, if this headset has an inline PTT, it may not be compatible with the radio and you would need to use the PTT on the radio.

If this doesn't work, you would need to use the TalkAbout headset designed for the MR350.

Best regards.

Ear bud/ptt, not working


Two things to check for:

1) The radio is shut off when you plug the earpiece into the radio.
2) Your VOX feature is shut off, or set to zero. (The XTN radio will sense an audio device is plugged into the jack and sometimes cause problems such as you are having.)

Lastly, be certain the accessory is designed to be used with the XTN style radio.

Problem with Headphones


Hi,

Can you pls add a few more details:
1. are the 2.5mm jacks stereo (3 pins) or mono (2 pins):
2. is your universal headset monaural or stereo; and
3. originally, did the universal headset came with 2 separate plugs?

At most that I can give you is a general/generic idea. The external speaker/microphone (or in your case the universal headset) uses also the charge jack, chances are that it is a multi terminal/pin jack. Pls refer to the diagram below.

5be4da5.jpg

The reason it is in continuous transmit is because one of the mini speaker is wired to the PTT trigger or the pins are wired wrong;

This would also explain why no transmit audio either manual or via VOX.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Earbuds


If you are using vox (voice activated transmit) go into the menu and make sure you don't have the VOX setting too high. You should be able to put the headset on... hit the "push to talk" button on the radio and transmit you audio. Turn the other radio on and make sure the radio is "keying" (tx with no auio) then make sure there is audio. If you don't have audio but the radio is transmitting.. you might have the wrong type of plug on your headset for the audio..... there are 2 plugs... 1 for transmit audio....1 for recieve audio. It could be the wrong type of plug for the jack in the radio. Regardless.. the way the headset works is either you push the "push to talk button" onj the radio OR you use the VOX function... with the vox function you just have to talk into the mic to transmit. This is what your headset is designed for. You will have to go into the menu and set up the radio for VOX. If you still have problems follow my directions at the top of this page ( check mic jack and stuff) I think you just have to set the radio up for VOX operation and set the VOX setting. You should be able to push the push to talk button and talk through the mic on the headset. If you don't get any audio that way there is a problem and you should check the jack and plug on the headset.
