I have this Kenwood TK-2107 .... when the ptt button is depressed the transmit led lights up but it does not transmit. Why is that, any good tips?


The output transistor could be bad. the Xmit relay could have burned contacts or is not operating at all.

Hello i have a yaesu ft-2900 it receives just fine but when i transmit it shows error. this radio is brandnew


Hi Gerald,

When you say you used the software to download frequencies, do you mean as in from the internet, or did you have to input frequencies via the software on your PC?

There is a difference, that's the reason I ask.

If, by using the software you manually input the frequencies, then did you input both the output and input frequencies or just output for each channel?

If the latter is true, and you are trying to access another user via a repeater, then that is the error.

Repeaters generally, require both the input frequency = the frequency you transmit on, and the output = the frequency you receive on.

Without both frequency pair, you won't be getting out, and no won can hear you, as you are basically transmitting as a simplex station on a repeater allocatted channel, hence the error message on your display.

The radio you have is used by many amateurs & CB operators, and both group utilise repeaters within their allocated spectrum, excluding 27 meg CB, which is simplex only, but with SSB included.

I hope this answers your query.

Best regards,
Peter

Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving


To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

T5710 Will Not xmit, etc.


I know you say your batteries are good. However, the symptoms you are describing would indicate a bad battery. Just to be sure, you might swap the batteries between the units and see if the problem moves with the battery. If not, you are correct, the batteries are good.
The next issue would be an internal radio issue, such as the unit has gotten wet or moist, and corrosion is beginning to form on the board. OR it is possible you have a hairline crack in the component board and this is causing some of the traces to make a poor connection.
FYI: It is common with these smaller types of radios for people to put them in their back pocket and sit on them. This will many times cause hairline cracks in the component board, or will cause small components to pop off the board.

FR60 intermittent transmission


Hello snorker,

It could be battery / power issue. Two-way radios draw much more power when transmitting then receiving. If the batteries are weak the radio might work perfectly fine on receive and then cut-out when you depress the Push-To-Talk.

Will a Motorola TalkAbout T5320 transmit to a Motorola TalkAbout T5530?


Hello Blindmaster,

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a “Privacy Code” or “Quiet Code.” The actual name of the feature may vary.) This feature encodes a low-frequency signal on your radio transmission. This signal is below the range of human hearing but can be detected by other radios. When the CTCSS feature is active your radio will ignore any signal that it receives that does not have the proper tone encoded on it.

In order for these radios to communicate, all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS code programmed or the CTCSS feature must be disabled.

I suspect that CTCSS is activated on your T5530s but is not enabled on your T5320. This would result in the situation you describe.

Also take note that when using different brands / models of radios to communicate with one another that the CTCSS code numbering scheme may not necessarily be the same from radio to radio. For instance, CTCSS code “4” on the Motorola TalkAbout series actually corresponds to code “A” on the Motorola Sport models.

President uniden hr 2510 ham radio


I know these are old posted questions but here are some new answers..... Simplest first! Make sure the TX button is not engaged, if it is then the radio will not work correctly.
Second would be a bad final or driver, this is a tough fix as these parts are tough to find, the parts are no longer made. A fix has been devised using MOSFETs but I have little details on this.
Third but not last is to do with age and environment, a glue was used to stabilize parts to the boards, wire and coils typically. This "glue" will break down over time and exposure to moisture and become conductive, shorting out parts and also corrosive, making copper wire and traces come apart.
Lastly, incorrect bracket knobs with screw threads too long can actually "crush" the PC board and break the PC copper traces.
Dropping the radio is not good, cracked boards and broken wires in hidden places.
Repairs can be made on all these but you need a tech that has experience to find these.....
