You need to check your programming of both frequency and interference eliminator. You may not have your radios set to match one another.

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

My walkie talkies arent communicating when i press the ppt button. it transmits too fast before i get a chance to talk into it. what can i do to fix them? is there a reset button? they are the motorola...


The ACTUAL problem is your rechargeable batteries have most likely depleted over time, and since it takes more batterie power to transmit than to receive it can appear that your batteries are fully charged and you can be receiving but due to the batterie it will be unable to transmit

Makes loud tone when pushing ptt button


The ptt switch or circuit is not disconnecting the audio circuit. Open the unit up and check the wiring, interconnect plugs for something shorted not canceling the receiver audio.

Radio stuck in RX mode.


Your PTT button is possibly at fault. It may be partially depressed, leaving your receiver open. Behind your PTT button there is an internal PTT button on the componet board. It may be stuck or defective.

T8500 blinks off and back on often when transmitting


It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. It is possible you have an old or defective battery pack, a bad connection to the battery, or your PTT button is not working properly. On this unit, the internal PTT button can begin to be bent further in from repeated use, or pressing too firmly.

As far as a more durable/reliable radio, you might want to look at radios in the business division such as the Motorola CP110, BPR40 or the CP150. These business level radios are built to work a 40+ hour work week, and are much more reliable than the consumer division products, which are intended for occasional usage.

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'

From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.

You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.

You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.

It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.
