1) Be certain you are plugging in the headset with the radio turned off.
2) Be certain the headset is one designed to go with the radio if purchased separately.
3) If the headset has an inline PTT, use it, not the one on the radio
4) Also, check your VOX settings, to assure it is set the way you would like, including VOX sensitivity.

Best regards.

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.

Hi I have the T5622 talkabout with a PTT headset. I can transmit OK but I am not receiving anything other than a ''click'' when the other person transmits. I have tested the headset and I am able to recive...


Here a few thoughts which come to mind.
1. You do not mention whether the radios communicate with the headset no on the radio. I will at this point, assume they do.
2. Be certain to have the radio SHUT OFF when plugging in the audio device.
3. Check your VOX settings. It could be your radio is going into VOX mode.
4. Only use the PTT button on the headset. Do not press the PTT on the radio at any time while using the headset.
5. Check that you have CALL TONES shut off.
6. Lastly, if nothing else works, go back to a basic mode, and set both radios where there are no special features turned on. ie turn off CODE, Qt Filter, VOX, Call Tones, etc.

Hello I just bought a Motorola 53725 SLK Headset with Swivel Boom Mic (Black) for my Motorola FV200AA 5-Mile and I have a problem to hear. They can hear me but I cant


Two things to check. Make certain you are plugging in the headset with the radio shut OFF. Also be certain the headset is plugged in all the way. You should feel a slight click when it is seated properly.

If the headset has an in-line PTT, don't alternate between it and the one on the radio. If there is no in-line PTT, use the PTT on the radio unless you have your radio set for VOX.

If using VOX mode, do not touch the PTT at all once you turn the radio on. One thing to keep in mind if using VOX, the receiver will pick up any ambient noise around you and think it is voice and keep your radio locked into transmit. Vox only works well in a somewhat quiet environment.

I've probably given you more info than needed, but wanted to cover all the bases.

CA12CD Plantronics will not transmit on Centracom Series 2 consol


The headset you bought will work with the Centracom Gold Elite but the older Series II may not work. Have you tried Plantronics assistance. They are very helpful and will support the product.

Using headset jack - unit always transmits


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.

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.

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.
