Motorola T6500 does not turn on

Hi !
I just bought two T6500 on ebay, they worked great the first days, then one unit just didn't turn on when twisting the on/off button (the LCD display does not turn on). I changed the battery without luck. Any idea ?

Most likly where the battery is suppost to touch on the inside of the radio, it is not touching all the point on the radio.

Can't charge motorolla talkabout T6500 battery


Hi treva,

These little radios are are real problem when it comes to batteries.

Not only do they eat batteries, but due to requires numerous recharging, you soon burn the poor batteries out.

Motorola is a great brand, unfortunately these little radios are made in great mass under license in good old China for a cheap price, and in there lies the problem....

You only get what you pay for...

Cheap & nasty.

I have answered numerous queries regarding this very problem with these battery munchers.

Sorry that I can't give you a real solution, but if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

Best advice is to buy a good 5 watt CB radio on ebay with charger, they're reasonably priced and if something goes amiss, there are definate fixes for them.

Sorry I could not give any other solution.

Cheers,
Peter

We are an event management company... Please tell me the price of Motorola Talkabout T6500 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio, and how can i buy it. need 10 sets (5 pairs). does it needs any license??


The TalkAbout radios are license-free and operate on FRS/GMRS frequencies intended for family use. It is possible using them in a business situation may be outside of the license-free perimeters. You would need to check further on this through a licensing company or the FCC (www.fcc.gov)

Here's a link to the user guide for the T6500. http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf

Here's a link to the Motorola TalkAbout Store: http://www.store.motorola.com/2-Way-Radios-Mobile-Devices-Products/b/2265993011?ie=UTF8&title=2%20Way%20Radios The T6500 is not a current model, but the models shown would talk with it, and work similarly.

Here's a link to another vendor we have had success with http://www.wirelesspro.com/ They show the T6500 on their website for sale.

Best regards.

I have held the - sign and done this several time and the Roger beep is still sounding what next?


The T6500 is slightly different than many of the other TalkAbout radios where the + (plus) button turns the Roger Beep (aka talk confirmation tone) on or off.

T6500 will turn ON the Roger Beep when turning the radio on with the +, but to shut it OFF you must hold in the - (minus) button while turning the radio on.

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf You will find the instructions in detail on page 25.

Best regards.

Cant turn off beep on motorola T6500


You may be referring to the Talk Confirmation Tone (Roger Beep). This feature is turned off by holding the minus (-) button while turning the radio on. See page 25 in the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T65xx.pdf

Best regards.

You need to set your interference eliminator code to zero, and your Qt filter to zero also. Here is a link to the owners manual: http://direct.motorola.com/ENS/T6500%20Series%20User%20Manual.pdf

What is happening is your T6500 is set to ignore radios which do not match the same code. The fact your Cobras can hear the T6500 indicates they are set with their interference eliminator turned off (aka no code).

A similar occurance will happen if the Qt filter is set to anything but zero. The Qt filter is unique to Motorola. These features are beneficial when you are in a high radio traffic area and you want to block out hearing other people. But in your situation, you are mixing radios, and the easiest way to make them match is to turn off the special features (aka set them to zero).

Press and hold the minus button while turning on your radio to turn on or off your keypad tones.

To turn the roger beep on or off, hold in the plus button while turning on the radio.

Motorola Talkabout T6500 will not transmit.


Are you sure the batteries are ok?, try to change the batery, check the radio battery contacts, verify if when you press the ptt, appear an icon on the display that correspond to TX function. Try to use an audio accesory to TX, if all this fail, you should replace it. Good luck
