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.

Xmit error message


Error in Xmit meaning one of the next options:

• The TI-84 Plus was unable to transmit an item. Check
to see that the cable is firmly connected to both units
and that the receiving unit is in receive mode

• You pressed ON to break during transmission

• You attempted to perform a backup from a TI-82 to a
TI-84 Plus

• You attempted to transfer data (other than L1 through
L6) from a TI-84 Plus to a TI-82

• You attempted to transfer L1 through L6 from a TI-84
Plus to a TI-82 without using 5:Lists to TI-82 on the
LINK SEND menu

Hi, I have a Yamaha rx-v450 amp that won't change sound modes (stereo, hall, jazz, rock etc) from the remote control but it works from the buttons on the unit. I've checked my remote by pointing it...


Hi! Transmitting doesn't mean it's working, What you should do to test it is use a good quality universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony and first program the preset code for your receiver into the Universal Remote. If that works, you know your OEM remote has gone bad, at least for those buttons. If it doesn't then you you should attempt to have your Universal Remote "learn" the IR signals from your receiver's remote If the controls still don't work, there is a problem with either your IR receiver on your receiver or the the circuitry that proceesses the signals into commands. Good Luck!

I can't xmit or receive on CB channels: Wx channels come in OK. I had a bad WalMart Special mobile antenna which shorted out because of corrosion. Now have a Diesel 15 inch mobile with tunable SWR tip....


If try another mic and see if problem is still
there then you have half of the problem,the
TX an RX all go through the mic if mic good
you will have to go inside of the unit.
Good Luck

I can't receive files via bluetooth on my Blackberry Bold


When you want to receive a bluetooth file do the following:

1. Go to Media.
2. Hit the menu key (left of trackball) and select Explore.
3. Browse to the folder you want to store the file in.
5. Hit Menu key again and select "receive using bluetooth."
6. Send from the other phone.

You'll have to do this for each file individually.

Garmin 760 phone feature


Did you check the settings for the sound output? If it is set to FM-receiver, you have to tune your radio to the same frequency as the 760 transmitting frequency. To get sound from 760-device, you must deselect the FM-transmitting feature.
(I don´t think this solves your problem. Too obvious.)

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.....

Roady XT Transmitter problem


Mine is doing the same as well. Been working for 1 year. Now it starts cutting out while listening. I noticed if it is broadcasting the fm frequency menu is there. The minute it cuts out I press Menu and that menu item is gone. It comes back once the radio starts working again. Mine is 1 year old. I got it Christmas of 2006. I do know that if you have it directly connected then this menu item will not appear and that is by design. I think my xm roady xt has gone bad.
