Question about Motorola Talkabout T5420 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio
Had tried your solutions but the problem persisted.
Had new AA batteries in both talkies, set the interference eliminator code to 0 yet I'm still unable to transmit / receive any message.
Here are some troubleshooting thoughts:
1. Is your battery indicator showing at least 2-3 bars? (Battery Note: Your rechargeable batteries may fail due to setting without use for a long period of time. They need replaced every 12-14 months usually. A good tip is to charge them once a month to keep the chemical in the battery active.)
2. Check to see your Qt noise filter is shut off. Refer to page 22 of the owners manual. It is possible you have some radios set to Y and others to N. To assure good communications you should set all of them to N.
3. With your radios set to interference code zero, place your radios one at a time in scan mode, while you transmit/talk on one individual radio. See if any of the radios receive. Do this with each radio individually to see if you are transmitting at all. NOTE: This test will determine if you have any ability to transmit. If you do not receive any sound on the 3 radios setting in scan mode, the individual radio you are testing will not transmit.
