Likely it is a low battery issue. Either the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced or the charger isn't working properly. Try replacing the battery with 4 AAs (IIRC) and see if that works.

We have several Motorola radios, two of which came with the rechargeable batteries. In the past year, neither of the rechargeable radios would recharge. The batteries won't make good contact with the charger even when not in the radio. Now one works with AAs but the other lost its settings and we haven't been able to reset to contact the other radios.

(we looked into replacing the batteries. Motorola lists chargers and batteries for our older radios but not the two that came with their own chargers. The local battery store wanted ~$40 dollars to try and rebuild the units. Since the chargers are not making good contact, we decided to go with the regular batteries.)

Here is a link to the user guide for the Motorola TalkAbout T5720. I only could find it available in English. You will need to translate into Indonesian.

RPL & TPL tones used in T-5720


The T5720 user manual does not list the TPL codes possible in the radio. However, they are the standard list, with zero being "open squelch" (no code). Here is a link to a Motorola manual which has a list of the PL codes in order on page 43. http://www.thekidshuttle.com/ABC%20Docs/CP100_Manual.pdf

On the T5720, another item to what for is the Qt noise filter. Be certain to set it to zero unless using the T5720 with others of the same model. It can also block transmissions. Here is a link to a user manual for the T5720 http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/starbattery/T56XXusersguide.pdf

Talkabout T5720 Frequencies


Hello Ruaal,

The frequencies in the TalkAbout T5720 are not adjustable. The radio operates on the designated Family Radio Service channels located at 462 and 467 MHz. There is no way to change these channels to be at 463 and 464 MHz.

Best regards,
Ken
