The radios charge up good and everything seems to work fine, except I can't change the channel. The channel buttons on both radios are not working on both radios which seems very weird.


They must be locked. To unlock, usually you press and hold a button with a "key" symbol. Model and brand would help a lot to "unlock" the mystery.

VF T8500 treadmill. Everything works except the belt...have combed through other replies on here..how do I check the brushes?


I am not familiar with this model, but usually, when you see red LED light up on the control board, is a sign of a malfunctioning board. You can check if your motor works but putting a 35A rectifier bridge at a 110VAC power source and connect the motor. Motors are usually 180VDC. So if it moves, it's OK. If it does, you should also place your hand on it to see if the operation is smooth. The brushes sometimes are under a rectangular plastic part on the opposite side of the small belt, or under a black round screw-like plastic. 21ccd37b-fec8-406d-bd2f-a1ea7fd624fa.png

I have a Motorola Talkabout from 1998 that has a talk button, a monitor button, and a power button. Whenever I press the talk button it just says the channel....but when I talk through my other walkie...


It seems a small hardware-problem, like a button is sticking, making a continues connection. If you are comfortable in hardware-modifications, try to open the casing of the malfunctioning walkie talkie. Do this carefully, not to damage it further.
When opened, check the 3 buttons to see any damage, or undesired connections (caused by extensive use or plain dirt).

My BPR40 transmits to one radio but can't respond ?


Check your PL/DPL settings among the radios. You may not have them programmed the same as one another. PL (aka private line) blocks out other users who do not have the same code as one another. Your radio which receives could be set with no PL code and it receives and hears every thing, so it would hear the other two, but not talk to them if they have a PL code setting.

Another way to check this is typically the dealer who programmed them will have the side button directly under the PTT programmed for Monitor. If you press this button a short press you should temporarily go into "open squelch" and you would be able to hear everything on your frequency. Try pressing this button on one of your "two" radios and see if they can hear the "one" radio. If so, you know it is a programming issue. (provided the button is programmed to Monitor). If pressing the Monitor button does not allow temporary communication, you have another issue.

If the green light on the radio seems to come on and stay on continuously, the radio is in need of repair. (Average flat rate repair on tehese BPR40s are around $79 currently at many repair centers.)

Best regards.

Motorola talkabout t5710s won't recieve


Hi,

The question I would ask is:

How close are the two radios to each other when you contact from one to the other?

A distance between the two radios of about 10-15ft, preferably more is desirable to achieve audible results, having the closer than 10ft, causes one to cancel the other out, so you either hear static, feedback or nothing.

Try 15ft of more distance between radios and see what happens.

Pls feel free to post the results here on the two way radio forum, as I'm interested to find out what happens.

Cheers, Peter@FixYa Team

Can't change channel of a Motorola Visar Handie-Talkie FM Radio Model: H05RDD9AA4DN It seems that this radio operates in only one channel and I need to be able to chanmge channels. However everything else...


The Visar has a channel lock feature. If you hold down the two channel buttons at the same time, it will do one of two things depending on the settings. Either the channel will lock, or the channel numbers in the LCD will flip.
If you press the channel button and the "popples" "pop" (for lack of a better word) then the channel selection buttons re most likely OK. To fix it you just press both channel buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds. It will beep and you should be able to change the channels. If not, then it needs to be repaired.

Go to your ringers menu, find the beep tone, (belive its ringer 10, while phone is the ringer is highlighted, press menu, then assign ringer as call alert. Hope this is what you're talking about. If you meant that it's not beeping when somebody presses the button to call you without alerting you, then you go to menu, settings, DC/GC options, and set "alert type" to ring. NOT vibrate or silent.

Motorola T6550 pair.


I can see where this feature can seem somewhat inconsistent. But if you think of it like a phone ringing, it is easier to understand. Once you have answered the phone, the phone stops ringing. And the person who called you never experiences a ring on their end.

VibraCall® Alert
Page 26: VibraCall is a vibrating alert that notifies you that your radio is receiving a message. This is useful in noisy environments. When the alert is on, the radio
vibrates once every 30 seconds when you receive a message on the channel and
code you set.
• To turn vibrating alerts on, press menu until the vibrating radio symbol is displayed, then press the plus (+) button to display the letter Y for Yes.
• To turn vibrating alerts off, press menu until the vibrating radio symbol is displayed, then press the minus (-) button until the minus symbol (-) is displayed.

Bell South 2250 one seems to be voice activated and other not voice activated.


To turn off sound activation press the menu button 3 times to enter VOX mode. The VOX icon should be flashing, then press the down button till the number of bars dissappear. Press the menu button to confirm the VOX off mode. You also can adjust the sensitivity of the VOX mode by how many bars are displayed, less bars equal less sensitivity. No bars and voice command is deactivated. Hope this helps.
