Question about Motorola Talkabout T5420 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Open Question

I have a Motorola Talkabout T5420, it's been with me for years. Excellent performance, but due to the wear and tear of the unit, the antenna (rubber component) becomes brittle. Any idea where can I buy a replacement for the rubber covering antenna here in Philippines? Please help. Thank you!

Go to http://shop.giantintl.com/Manuals.asp?offset=30 and choose your model from the pulldown menu. It will take you to the pdf of the manual.

As for your intermittent problem, you might check your battery, or battery connections. Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.

SOURCE: Antenna for a Motorola Talkabout 250

Parts are not available for the TalkAbout 250. Schematics were never available to dealers. To get an antenna you will need to locate a used 250. The antenna is not a screw on type, it is internally connected.

Replace a key actuator pad that is torn bad


The rubber key cover is one piece and not sold as a spare part. Take the radio apart, remove the pad and put a thin tape, such as a very high quality electrical tape and a small amount of RTV silicone under the tear. Reassemble, wiping off any extra RTV as you go.

Lost tranmission capabilities on one of the units, is there a way to reset. Last night it worked fine, turned of at night, tried to use this morning - no output!!! Any suggestions? Model T5420


The only way to really reset this is to remove the power/battery for 8 hours, press power button for 3 seconds, then wait 1/2 hour. Then try it again.

You possibly have the "code" set differently on one unit. Check your programming, including the Qt filter, if any. Here is a link to the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5320_T5410_T5420_User_Manual_E.pdf

Can't make the T5420 operate without the beeps!


I have not looked up the T5420 user guide, however, on most Motorola TalkAbouts you hold in the minus (-) button while turning the radio on. Post back if this doesn't work, and we'll find the manual for you.

T5420 unable to transmit or receive. Please help!


Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'

From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.

You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.

You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.

It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.
