Question about Motorola Talkabout T5720 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

I have 2 SX709 handsets. When set to a number other than zero (on any channel) they communicate between each other well, but can't receive transmission from other sets. When set to zero, they will receive, but one handset has constant ststic as though it is trying to receive. I have scrolled through the menus on the 2 sets simultaneously, and the screens are identical for each action. Interchanging the battery does not solve the problem. Can anyone help me please??

Sounds like a receive sensitivity issue. The radio you have with the static is likely very sensitive to other RF (radio frequency waves) in the area. Turning on the interference eliminator code (setting it to a number) blocks out this unwanted noise. This radio is not repairable, and there is no fix for this problem. The only fix would be to set the "other sets" to have the same code.

best regards.

I have two T6500 walkie talkies that have worked well for several years, suddenly neither can transmit. When PTT is held, nothing happens on either handset. we get random transmissions/static so it seems...


Take the radios back to a very basic setting with all special features turned off. If the radios have a Qt filter check to see it is turned off, and set your Code to zero (off) on both units. Also, check to see your battery is good in both units.

Sends well but will not receive unless mon is pressed.


Perhaps the monitor button is over-riding a privacy code. Set the privacy code to zero and then try it again.

Have purchased the sx709 on the other uhf they can hear me but I can't hear them


Your interference code eliminator is set differently than theirs. If we were to guess theirs is set to off (zero) and yours is set to a number. Also, check to see your Qt filter, if any, is off.

How to tx and rx between t5920 and yaesu vx6r


The T5920 is user programmable. It appears your VX6R does not have a CODE turned on, if you can receive transmissions from the T5920, but not talke back. The T5920 has both a CODE and a Qt filter. The Qt filter must be set to zero to communicate with other brands of radios. And to turn off your CODE, you will need to set it to zero also. Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T59xx_User_Manual_E.pdf

I want to communicate from t5720 talkabout to midland lxt303. When I set them to the same channel the talkabot gets out but will not receive unless I press the MON button on the face of the radio


Set your interference eliminator code on the T5720 and the Qt filter both to zero. You have one or both turned on. By setting them to zero you will turn them off. Then your radios should work together.

Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving


To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

Motorola Talkabout T5700 and Audiovox GMRS 1582CH don't talk


Hi,

Most radios of this series would have Interference Eliminator Codes. The codes eliminate other incoming transmission not with the same code (number). There could be similar radios working on the same channel/frequency, but if they do not have the same code then neither one would hear each other. This does not make a channel "private", rather it limits what one can hear on that channel to another radio with an identical setting of the code. In some Motorola models, pressing the Menu button until the small numbers/code flashes would enable them to be changed. To change, press the + or - keys. Pressing the MON key or setting the code to Zero would enable the radio to receive and sound off all incoming signals with or without the code.

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.

Not able to communicate


First of all check if the channel on both the radios are the same. If its a year, then also check the batteries on the sets and then the antenneas. If still no result, I suggest you get it done thru a service center.

Handset ?No Link To Base? error and no dial tone


2/29 Have you registered or re-registered the handset?
"No link" can mean handset is not accepting radio wave of base unit. At Mfgr website pull-down operator's manual and look for registration instructions. Some sequence of buttons will create a radio signal from base (have handset off base) then another sequence of buttons on handset will accept radio signal. If handset has "menu" button, try "menu", then "00" (zero zero) then select an accept or "OK" button. Good luck.
