Question about Motorola T5710 (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

2 Answers

Won't receive or transmit

The radios won't transmit or receive. The red lights flash, the display works, the ringtones sound. The batteries are charged (and the display shows a full battery). We've tried disconnecting the battery. Can anyone help?
Thanks.

    It sounds like you may have the interference eleminator code set improperly. refer to "page 21" in your user manual for the proper settings. If you don't have your manual I will email the .pdf file to you. just send me your email address to vrc-repair@sbcglobal.net

Kenwood Protalk tk-3200U8P will receive, but not transmit. When talk button is push a loud beep will sound. Any suggestions?


Assuming it is programmed correctly, it is a weak, undercharged or bad battery. Transmit takes a lot more power than receive. A beep or no transmit, even if the Transmit light comes on can still mean the battery condition described.

Radio Resets when PTT


You have a bad or poorly charged battery. Transmitting takes more energy than receiving, so it is the first to fail.

Radio will not send


It is possible your Code for transmit is different than your Code for receive. Cobra makes so many models, you are not giving enough information. Also, Transmit takes a LOT of power, so even if everything is setup, if your batts are weak or old, the radio will receive, but not transmit. Also check your antenna, make sure it is tight and NEVER transmit without an antenna. Yes, all lights will work even with old batteries.

HEllo, I have a Motorola Radius CP200. When I


If the sound is continuous, like a long tone humming, it is possible you are on a channel which is not programmed. Try changing your channel knob to a different channel and see if the sound changes.

If the sound is not continous, and only happens upon pressing a button, we are not certain what you are experiencing without seeing the radio first hand.

If it were the battery you would get a low battery beep and then the radio would shut itself down. This can happen from a bad battery or a low battery. If this were the situation, you should check your charger and be certain the light comes on and stays on when the radio is placed on the charger. (Note: your radio should always be turned off when on the charger.) A quick test would be to swap the battery with a known good radio and see if you have the same problem. If so, you know it is not a battery or charging problem.

If none of these items help, send or bring the radio to a Motorola repair shop for a quick analysis.

Best regards.

Flashing red light on radio where it thinks its recieving. Transmits fine but does not recieve.


Three things come to mind:
1) The radio is receiving, hence the light, but you may have a different PL code than the other radio and it is muting the transmission. Check your programming to be certain both radios are programmed alike. The red light indicates activity on your frequency.
2) Your radio may have a problem with the receive side of the radio or a bad speaker.
3) The transmitting radio may have a problem with transmit. This can be a sign of a bad battery. Swap batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery. (It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so loss of transmit is common with a bad battery.)
Best regards.

Radio will not transmit, display seems wrong


Here is a link to the user manual for the SV600R. http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/SX600%2012-21-07.pdf Follow the instructions to reprogram the affected radio. Note: The problem you are describing may not be simply programming. The radio problem may be non-reversible. You might also try a new battery, or switch the battery from the other unit for a test, just to see if the battery is bad.

Flashing light


the problem may be the batteries. When the batteries get old and won't charge or if a battery needs recharging the kenwood radios TX/RX LED will flash untill the problem is resolved.
