Hell ssalah,

Most of the time when one radio cannot talk to the other radio it means that the Privacy Codes are not configured properly. In order for the two radios to talk to one another they both have to be set to the same channel and Privacy Code or the Privacy Code function needs to be turned off on both radios.

The Privacy Codes can be used to keep the radios silent unless they receive a signal from another radio using the same code. This enables the radios to be used on busy channels with a minimum of interference. If Privacy Codes are turned off on one radio and turned on for the other radio, the situation you describe will occur.

Consult the user's manual for information on the Privacy Code function and either disable the function on both radios or set both radios to the same code.
Best Regards,

Motorola T5725 - Earpiece with mic wont work


A few things you might check:
1) Be certain the radio is turned off when plugging in any audio device.
2) Be certain the device is plugged in all the way. You should feel it seat, or click into place.
3) Use a device designed for your model radio. Aftermarket accessories don't always have the functionality of the OEM device.
4) Be certain you have special features such as VOX turned off on your radio.

Hope one of these helps.
Best regards.

What you are describing indicated the "code" is not set the same on both radios. Check your frequency, interference code eliminator and Qt filter (if any). All the settings must be identical between the two radios. If you are still having issues, set your code and Qt filter (if any) to zero (off) and then try it. Lastly, check your batteries. Bad or poorly charged batteries can cause transmit issues, as it takes more power to transmit than to receive.

The talkabout t5500 and the t5725


Hello bella-9,

The T5500 is a 2 channel radio and the T5725 is a 14 channel radio. However, the radios should be compatible with each other on FRS channels 1-14 as long as both radios are using the same Quiet Talk code. If the Quiet Talk settings are different the radios will not be able to communicate with one another.

Assuming all settings are the same (as you say) and the units are within range of each other (typically less then a mile over clear, level terrain) they should work just fine.

Best Regards,
Ken

Neither radio will receive or send


Motorola Talkabouts usually a have a CODE you can set for each channel. This is like a TPL / DPL code. If its not set the same for both radios then other radio may not receive.

GP300. Assuming they are programmed to talk to each other, ie RX and TX of each on the same frequency or they may talk through a repeater and that the TP/ DPL code are correct. If you have the Speaker icon crossed through they are probably muted, but in this case you should be able to unmute them from the keypad. Only other thing is if they are programmed for Selective Call, then they would only unmute on a call which contains their ID #. There several Selective call systems, MDC, Select V , Quick call are just some. Europe usually opts for a certain type of Select V. US uses MDC.

Motorola T5725 won't work


I have T5720s - both have the same settings (channel 1), both are charged, but they won't communicate. They beep when you push the "talk" button, but you don't hear anything on the second radio.

Any ideas?
Thanks!
John
