It is possibly a bad or poorly charged battery. Try a known good battery and see if the problem persists. When a battery is failing the first indication is usually loss of transmit. It takes more power to transmit than to receive.

If the battery appears to be the problem, check your charger to see that it is working properly and clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser prior to giving it a full charge. Then try the original battery one more time. If it still fails, replace it.

If after testing the radio with a known good battery you still have a problem. It is likely your radio is in need of repair. Flat rate repair is available for this type of radio. (Currently running $85.) Or if your radio is less than one year old, contact the vendor where you purchased the radio for warranty procedures.

Best regards.

I have a motorola rdv2020 radio that works but doesn't work with the headset. I have tried different headsets. Any ideas?


We see this all the time. You tried the best test. So, it is the audio jack. Common failure. They can be repaired by a competent tech at a repair shop. VERY difficult to replace on your own. The part is cheap, the labor is high because Motorola does not want you (or us) working on those radios. Motorola has a flat rate around $115 (ouch) and our shop averages less than that, but they were not designed to be worked on. Next radio, contact us for a more repairable model. Free advice.

Flashing red light on radio where it thinks its recieving. Transmits fine but does not recieve.


Three things come to mind:
1) The radio is receiving, hence the light, but you may have a different PL code than the other radio and it is muting the transmission. Check your programming to be certain both radios are programmed alike. The red light indicates activity on your frequency.
2) Your radio may have a problem with the receive side of the radio or a bad speaker.
3) The transmitting radio may have a problem with transmit. This can be a sign of a bad battery. Swap batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery. (It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so loss of transmit is common with a bad battery.)
Best regards.

I HAVE A OLD XV1100 THAT I WANT TO PROGRAM TO MY RDV2020 RADIO IS IT POSSIBLE.


Yes. First you will need to know what is programmed in your newer RDV2020, both the frequency and PL code. Using the instructions in the XTN series user guide you can reprogram your XV1100 to match your RDV2020. If you are uncertain how your RDV2020 is programmed, contact your local Motorola dealer or the vendor who you purchased the unit from.

Here is the link to the XTN series user guide. See programming instructions beginning on page 18.

Best regards.

Need the DPL or CODE for Motorola RDV2020


The RDV2020 is programmable to many different PL and/or DPL codes. Here is a link to the manual: http://www.twowayradiosfor.com/pdf/RDX-Non-Display-manual.pdf

You can read about reprogramming codes pages 36-44. Or simply reading out the code on page 40.

Radio will transmit and other radios receive and hear it. I will receive but will nor produce any sound. I have re-programmed it twice but to no avail. Please advise.


Your PL (aka private line, tone code, quiet call, interference eliminator) might be programmed differently between the radios. OR you have a radio needing repair.

Best regards.

Voice recognition on motorola t5500


That means that it will Transmit, like pressing the "Talk" button, BUT ONLY when it hears the "Voice" it was "Trained" on. So this is so No-one else could use this unit. With this method. You "Identify" yourself, and after that every-time you speak, the Transmitter is keyed, and the channel is opened and the voice sent, when you stop talking,it goes back to receive, again. Some are less sophisticated, in that they are really a "Sound Switch" and when the unit "Hears" a "Voice" it, switches OFF receive, and ON the transmitter, and Transmits the audio out.

Staying keyed up after button release


I have never seen this problem before, check if the VOX is activated, this could cause to transmit the radio, but the voice must be transmited. check if the Accesory connector is not dirty, clogged or damaged
