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.

Initially, pls check that the displays of both radios are identical. This is important to establish that the channel/frequency, Interference eliminator settings and all others are the same that both are paired. In some instances, the radio settings may not be changed if it is locked. Top unlock, press on the MENU button for about 3 seconds. For all other settings, pls refer to the user's manual.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Assuming you have checked all the channels for functionality, it appears your radios need reprogrammed. This is something which would require you taking the radios to your local Motorola dealer.

Recheck your Frequency, Interference Code Eliminator and the Qt Filter. If all 3 are set identical. If this doesn't clear up the issue. Next set your Qt Filters and your Code to zero (off). Lastly, on the radio which has problems transmitting, check your battery. A bad battery will cause intermittent transmit issues. Trade the battery with a known good battery and see if the problem clears up. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser.

Emergency Alert Mode
The Emergency Alert feature can be used to signal members in your
group of your need for urgent help. MR series radios will operate in an
automatic "hands-free" emergency control mode for a total of 30
seconds after activating the Emergency Alert. MR series radios in your
group will automatically advance the speaker volume to the maximum
setting and sound a warbling alert tone for 8 seconds. The alert tone is
emitted from your own radio speaker and the receiving radios in your
group. After the 8 second alert, any spoken words or incidental sounds at
your end will be transmitted to the group for 22 seconds. For the 30
second duration of Emergency Alert mode, MR series radio controls and
buttons will be locked to maximize reception of the emergency message.
1. Press and hold the Emergency Alert button for 3 seconds.
2. Release the button after the LED Indicator glows red and the alert tone
begins to sound. There is no need to continue to hold the Emergency
Alert button or use PTT for your message to be transmitted.
3. After the alert tone ends you may speak into the microphone. Your
voice or incidental sounds will be transmitted. The LED indicator will
continue to glow for the duration of the 22 second period.
4. After 30 seconds your radio speaker will emit a Talk Confirmation
Tone and the LED Indicator will extinguish. Operation then returns to
normal two-way mode.
Note: All Motorola Talkabout EM, MJ, and MR series radios are fully
compatible with the Emergency Alert feature. Radios other than EM, MJ,
MR series can receive the emergency alert signal, but will not respond
with adjusted volume settings, locked controls, or a warbling alert tone.
Users of other radio models set to the same channel and Interference
Eliminator Code will hear a steady tone for 8 seconds followed by the
voice transmission for 22 seconds.
Warning: The Emergency Alert feature should only be used in the event
of an actual emergency. Motorola is not responsible if there is no
response to the emergency alert from the receiving group.
