Question about Motorola Mobility RDV2020 RDX Series On Site VHF 2 Watt 2 Channel Two Way Business Radio

1 Answer

I have a Motorola RDV2020, when I try to write to the radio it says the memory is corrupted and to perform a factory reset. I tried the device reset with the software connection to no avail. Is there an actual (different) reset available? Thanks! Rick-

1) You can try the manual reset by pressing the PTT, SB1 and SB2 simultaneously for 3 seconds while turning the radio on. Then reconnect the radio to your computer and try reading the radio. If you are able to read the radio, you can then reprogram the radio.

2) If the above does not work, try cloning a known good codeplug (saved archive of another good unit) into the radio without reading it first.

3) If none of the above work, your radio will need to be seen by Motorola or an authorized dealer with knowledge of the RDX series.

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.

I have one radio that is way too loud when I turn it on. Is there a way to adjust it?


Yes, replace the ON/OFF switch inside the radio. It is failing. You could try to take the radio apart and trying to resolder the part. It is NOT easy. Moto did not want these worked on. If this is the same radio with the audio jack issue, you would save a lot of labor cost by having both done at the same time.

MISSING PTT BUTTON ON RDV2020 PORTABLE REPAIR


The part you are needing is part of a front housing assembly. It is not available separately. You can choose to replace this part, send the unit to Motorola ($116), or a flat rate repair facility ($85).

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.

I have a motorola rdv2020 and after a few minutes stops transmitting. You can see the recieving light come on with the other radio, but no voice is coming through. After shutting it off for a few minutes...


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.

Cant delete gpx files from 705 edge memory. done all usuall stuff on pc, even tried deleting gpx folder but routes still appear in saved rides when unit re-powered up. any ideas anyone?


Only one idea ... Perform hard reset. Garmin devices have often data corruption issue, that can only be solved by return to factory settings :
Device powered off, press and hold mode and Power on buttons for 10 seconds, then pulse press lap/reset button.

You will be asked for confirmation, confirm, your device should be OK then.
Also update the firmware, you'll get last fixes for data corruption ... (does not mean there are none remaining ...)
