First check your batteries. Try the battery pack from a known good radio. If you do not have a battery problem, your issue is probably non-reversible. Sorry. This style radio is non-repairable. The repairable Talkabout units include the Distance, Distance DPS, the TA-7400 and TA-7200.

Talkabout MH230R does not Receive or Transmit on channel, can just Transmit (only clicks when Recieve) when programmed 2 channels higher (i.e. all radios on 5-3, one is on 7-3)


Strange. Could it be any of the radios are from different countries? The channels are not worldwide. For instance, Canadian radios are on different frequencies than USA radios. They look identical.

One radio not recieving


You need to check your interference eliminator code. It sounds like they are not set to the same code. Also, if your radio has a Qt filter, set it to zero.

Here's a link to the manual http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5300_T5400_User_Manual_E.pdf

Motorola Talkabout Distance DPS Monitor Button Dead


To remove the button properly/safely, you will need a frame removal tool. This extracts the component board from the radio, and then you can get to the back side of the button assembly. This tool is available for around $5-$7 at most Motorola dealers.

Note: The monitor button is not frequently used, so if the PTT button is working properly, I would not be concerned with the monitor button. The purpose of the monitor button is for the user, when using the radio with the "interference code eliminator" turned on, to be able to check for radio traffic on the frequency before transmitting. Very seldom is anyone so polite as to check.

If you are needing to have the unit repaired, here is a link to some info: http://www.eradiostore.com/cart/images/repair_request.pdf

It includes the dual drop-in charger and 2 new batteries. You can order directly from Motorola at the above link.

Motorola Talkabout 5700, 60 second timeout?


The 60 second timeout is a feature which is necessary to keep from burning up the final amplifier in the unit. It keeps the user from ruining their radio. Most radios, including business radios have this feature. Continually holding down the PTT will also run the battery down very quickly.

It would be best to try getting a regular baby monitor.

Neither radio will receive or send


The radio probably needs reprogrammed to match the other units. Check your owners manual for instructions.

Motorola Talkabout T5400


Hello, There is not compability issue, sounds like you have a mic problem because you hear the Roger Beep and that means that the transmition and Reception cicle is working if you could test an audio accesorie would be great. There is another possibility if one of the radios is out of frequency you could experiment the same symtoms.
