Motorla two way radio not charging


Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and be certain the radio is turned off while setting on the charger. If this does not solve the problem, try a different battery in the charger to see if the charger is working properly. If the problem is not the charger, then replace your battery.

Will not turn on


Try swapping the battery packs and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, you have a bad or poorly charged battery. If the same radio does not work with a different battery pack, then you have a radio problem.

Best regards.

Not charging


Here are some troubleshooting ideas:
1) Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser, both on the radio and the charger (gently).
2) Have your radio turned off when placed on the charger.
3) Does the light on the charger come on when you place the battery on the charger?
4) Try another battery on the same charger and see if it will charge a different battery.
5) Try the known good battery on this radio and see if the radio functions correctly with a known good battery.
6) Try a different charger with the questionable battery and see if you can get it to charge.
7) Be certain the insert in the BPR40 charger is turned the correct direction for the type of battery you have. When inserted correctly the rails should guide the radio into place, placing the external charge contacts on the radio against the charge contacts of the charger.
8) Check the date code on your battery, if more than 2 years old, replace it.

Best regards.

We purchasedn 3 bpr 40 and we justed ordered another, when we turn the bpr on to the channel of the 3 others that are in use, we just get a low continual tone, i tried a radio check on channel 1 with no...


Your new radio is likely not programmed the same as the others. A continual tone indicates a channel which is not programmed (doesn't have a frequency installed).

The other thing which can cause a tone, is a low or uncharged battery. You might try switching one of the known good batteries to the new radio to see if it will work. If you still have the same continual tone with a known good battery installed, you have a programming issue. If the battery swap solves the problem, then you need to investigate why your battery isn't charged up.

Either way, contact the dealer where you purchased the BPR40, they should provide programming free, or a warranty replacement battery for free. If you ordered online or by mail, and you just received the radio within the week, you should request they provide return shipping for you.

Best regards.

Re: MagOne by Motorola, BPR40 -- What button should I push and how many times to make a radio stop beeping repeatedly before I can communicate? Thanks!


None of the buttons will solve this issue.

A repeating low tone is heard when you press the PTT if your battery level is low. You may have a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so the first place this shows up is when pressing the PTT. A quick way to check this is to swap batteries with a known good radio and see if the problem switches to the other radio.

Battery tips: Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to remove the film caused by hand oil. Always charge your battery with the radio turned off. And be certain your charger is plugged into an outlet that is not connected to a light switch shutting off power. Batteries last approx. 2 years. Check your battery's date code to see its age. (3 or 4 digit number, first one-two numbers are the year, second two are the week of the year. example: 1132 would be 2011 the 32nd week)

If the above does not solve your problem, you should see your local Motorola dealer, or a nationwide repair center for more assistance. Current flat rate repair on this style unit is typically around $69.

FYI: Your buttons are likely top button = monitor/sticky monitor and the bottom button could be hi/low power, scan or one of several other features. Each button has a short and a long press option.

Best regards.

Just got a Mag One BPR battery delivered to me and i put it on the charger. After about an hour the green light is on. I thought the battery needed to be charged for 8 hours the first time? Why the green...


The charger which comes with the BPR40 is a rapid charger. (The book doesn't indicate if it is a 90 min. or 3 hour charger.) None-the-less, your battery is fine. When your charger is displaying green it will continue to trickle (slow) charge the battery to keep it topped off, so to speak. The first 3 charge cycles you should leave the battery on the charger the full recommended time. On most Motorola radios it is 10-12 hours. This will assure your battery is charged to full capacity and initiated properly. In most cases, your traditional charging of the radio should be overnight. When you go to bed, put the radio to bed on the charger.

FYI: All batteries come from the factory with some charge in them. It is a small test charge to assure the battery's funcationality.

If for some reason after the first week or so, you think your battery or charger is not functioning properly, contact the dealer where you purchased the unit. They can replace it under warranty.

Best regards.

I want to change batteries in my 03 Crown Vic and I am wondering if I hook up the dc/dc cord if this unit will feed current back into the car thus retaining the computer settings and the radio station...


This actually quite a good trick to provide an appropriate (eg. charged) 'alternate' DC power source to maintain the minimum voltage and current to hold the computer, radio and alarm setting for your car while swapping your car battery (I have myself used 2 small 9 Volts batteries in series via alligators clips for this purpose): just make sure that it is connected on the correct side of the cables where voltage and current will be maintained after the main car battery is disconnected!
Hope it works for you and have fun!
