The best solution we offer our customers is to try buying another radio "used" on ebay. The tray has not been available for several years. If you have a damaged tray, we have had success at repairing them. If the tray is lost or missing, we which you well on your search.

Need battery tray for motorola sport 10 x


Unfortunately, the battery trays for this Sport 10X radio, Sport 7X and the later model TalkAbout Distance DPS are no longer available. In our repair facility we often get requests for these battery trays, and as a dealer we have not been able to get them for several years. Your best option is finding a used parts radio somewhere like ebay. In some instances the original tray can be fixed if you still have it.
Best regards.

Tip

TalkAbout Distance Charging & Battery Options


The Motorola TalkAbout Distance and Distance DPS radios have a rechargeable NiCd battery pack (HNN9056 and/or HNN9044). Use of this battery pack is the best method for powering the radio. This type of battery pack has a 18-24 month life expectancy. You can determine the age of your battery from the date code on the back of the battery above the stop sign. The first digit is the year and the next two are the week of the year. Ex: 919 would read 2009 the 19th week.

The DPS model came with both a NiCd battery tray and an Alkaline battery tray. While the NiCd battery pack is the best option for fully powering your radio, along with being the most economical option, in a pinch or when charging is not available the 6 Alkaline batteries will power the radio for up to 18 hours. Note: Replacement battery trays are no longer available, it is advisable to keep both trays. If one fails, you will have the other as a backup.

The TalkAbout Distance is a repairable radio. The consumer replaceable parts are the NiCd battery pack, belt clip, antenna and charger.

Im trying to take my talkabout distance and i cant figure out how to take it apart. i think it may be the distance dps, but im not sure.


Note: This job is made much easier if you have a frame removal tool.

1) Carefully remove battery tray from radio. Be careful not to disturb or break the mylar ribbon on the back of the tray,and do not disturb the solder contacts, as these trays are no longer available.
2) Look inside the radio where you just removed the battery tray. You will find the housing has a channel or gutter running up both sides. At the top of the gutter is the place we are looking for, a plastic latch or ear.
3) Using a frame removal tool, or if needed two small screw drivers, slide them up the gutter on the inside of the housing on the right and left, until you reach the small ears. The frame removal tool will lift these ears and release the guts of the radio from the chassis.
4) Once released, carefully slide the component board up and out of the housing. The top plate will remain attached to the component board. This step is tricky, as it is easy to rip components off the component board when sliding in or out of the housing.

FYI: Flat rate repair is usually available at facilities servicing the TalkAbout Distance and Distance DPS for a current rate of $69 ea.

Best regards.

Motorola Talk About distance dps battery tray bad. Where might i locate another b tray. THANKS! MODEL P24SRY03G2AA


Unfortunately replacement battery trays (both alkaline and rechargeable NiCd type) for the TalkABout Distance and Distance DPS have not been available for several years. We have had some success in repairing existing trays, here in the repair shop, if the damage is not too severe. As for a source, you might watch ebay for another unit for parts, or replacing your existing radio. Be certain to quiz the seller on the condition of the battery tray.

Best regards.

Need battery tray for motorola dps radio


[This is not a solution, but a commentary on the need for a tray. Please do not rate this post, as it is meant for informational purposes only.]

This is more common that you might think. The battery trays (both 6-AA Alkaline and NiCd rechargeable-style) have not been available for a few years from Motorola. From a nationwide repair center perspective, we find some damaged trays can be repaired, and some owners find a "parts radio" from sources such as ebay.

For those of you reading this posting which have the TalkAbout Distance or Distance DPS, let this please be a reminder to take care of your trays. Once the tray is gone, the radio is not functional, nor can it be repaired.

Best wishes on your search and please post back if you do find one.

Best regards.

Where can I buy repair parts for my Motorola T5720 Talkabout radio?


So sorry, parts have never been available for the TalkAbout line of radios (other than TalkAbout Distance & DPS). If you are looking to repair an existing T5720 unit, your best option would be to locate a like-model for parts. eBay can be a good source.

As for replacement batteries and accessories you can use the Motorola TalkAbout Accessory Store.

Best regards.

How to charge battery in Motorola Talkabout Distance DPS


You can obtain a wall adapter style charger for your radio at your local Motorola dealer, or online at http://www.eradiostore.com/cart/index.php?target=products&mode=search&subcats=Y&type=extended&avail=Y&pshort=Y&pfull=Y&pname=Y&epcode=Y&q=htn8232

Sidenote: The rechargeable battery is good for about 2 to 3 years. You can tell the age of your battery by looking at the date code on the back of the battery above the stop sign. The first number is the year, the next two numbers are the week of the year. 915 would be 2009 the 15th week. (Or if very old it could be 1999 the 15th week.) A good battery, when charged will go an 8-10 hour day.

Keep both of your charge trays, replacements for these are no longer available.
