Question about Motorola FV200AA GMRS/FRS 2-Way Radio Walkie Talkie with 5 mile Range
My kids have a pair of these walkie-talkies and one of them has developed a quirk. When you turn it on, it starts changing channels, and it won't stop until you turn it off -- unless it notices something happening on some channel, when it will stop there ... almost like a police scanner ... but it won't stay there, or give you control: as soon as you press a button, it starts scanning again.
I thought of taking out the batteries and seeing whether the unit would reset itself when new batteries were installed -- but it's rechargeable. And there doesn't appear to be any other way to reset it.
Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
Thanks everyone, I was going CRAZY
my kids have the other ones (2) at the park
I don't know what I would have done
Thanks from alaska

Your radio will recall the last setting you were on when you shut the radio off. So when you turn it on again, it will be in the same mode.
Your radio is stuck in scan mode, either by being programmed by the user that way, or by the button being stuck. Most-likely it is from someone playing with the unit and turning on scan. On some Motorola models scan is depicted by a little button with a Z on it. If this is the case press the Z button and then turn the radio off. When you turn it back on you should be good to go.
Otherwise, Get out your owners manual and look for directions on shutting off scan, or resetting the radio to the factory default settings. If you do not have the manual, do a quick google search for your radio model and the words "user manual". If you don't find one, post here again, and some of us will try to locate one for you.
