Question about Motorola Talkabout T5420 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio
Neither of my Y5420's appears to be transmitting / tried different channels / no luck Help /!
Check the conductors where the battery passes energy to the radio, ake sure the tabs are clean and bent out to make good contact. The electrical draw in the battery is much lower than just turning on the unit opposed to pushing the PTT button. Also, use a volt meter and make sure the batteries are not weak and dropping voltage when you use the PTT button. These batteries do need replaed from time to time, especially if you never allow them to run all the way down to dead. This should be done (running batteries until they're dead) once every 1-2 months on any re-chargeable battery, it will greatly extend the battery life. This is true of all re-chargeable batteries.
