It could be that a wire came loose inside switch. Solder all wires in place around switch or reheat them. Cold solder joints sometimes cause this. Solder pencil types are sold at Radio Shack.

My Midland walkie talkie quits transmitting about 3 seconds after I start transmitting


It is more likely a power issue. PTT switches do not normally cause a short circuit. Check the batteries, swap the batteries and see if that helps. Radios take a great deal more power to transmit than turn on or receive. If not the battery, try a low voltage battery, such as a cordless phone battery. If it still occurs, check your warrany and send it back to the factory.

Is it possible to fix a non working PTT button on a RDV2020


The PTT button is one of the common failure parts. It is replaceable, but best done by an experienced repair center.

The following things can happen over time:
1) The internal PTT switch can wear out from frequent usage.
2) The user begins to press harder to get the PTT to work, bending the PTT switch further away from the external button the user is pressing.
3) Plastic diaphram, if any present, gets broken in half, and the external PTT switch doesn't work anymore.

Several companies offer flat rate repair on this style unit for around $85.

Best regards.

Hi, I have a LXT380/385. I find out haw to turn


I had the same issue here is the quote from the owners manual: To increase/decrease the volume level, press the up or down button during RX or STANDBY mode. With both radios on the same channel hold down the transmit or "PTT" button--this will put the other radio in the RX mode. While holding down this PTT or side button on one radio then you can adjust the volume on the other radio using the up or down arrows. (This is how you do it on RX mode. I'm not sure yet how to enter Standby mode.)

Midland GXT 950 two way. TX problem


I am sure the OP isn't likely monitoring this, but just in case anyone else needs it... It's a power problem. Try charging the batteries, even though they look like they're fully charged -- or replace with 4@AA batteries.

This only seems to happen on the GMRS channels -- not the FRS ones. The radios come default to transmit at high power (the full 5 watts) on the GMRS channels, but only 0.5 watts on FRS. If you go to settings and change the power on that particular channel you're trying to medium or low, you'd likely find it works with the charge you had problems with.

Recharging or changing to 4@AA batts should get you back up to continuous TX on those high-powered channels.

Have it on cannel 4 04 but VOX is in the upper left corner. can hear but can't send.


The manual isn't specific, but your VOX feature likely works only with an optional external mic. To turn this feature off for normal use,
- Press MENU four times (display will show VOX)
- Select oF by pressing the up or down arrow key
- Push the PTT button to confirm and return to normal operation
