20 Most Recent Motorola Talkabout T5700 AA (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio Questions & Answers


No, the charger is only usable to charge the rechargeable NiMH or Li-Ion battery which comes with the radio. Attempting to charge Alkaline rechargeable batteries with this charger could cause the to expode. If your charger is not charging the batteries which came with the units, it could be you do not have the charger cord end plugged in all the way, or the batteries dropped below the initial charge level by setting on a store shelf too long. Most TalkAbouts come with a cradle style charger to hold the radio, and a possible plug to plug into the charge hole. Check all connections, and clean any battery/charger contacts with a pencil eraser. To re-initialize the batteries you would need to attempt 3-5 charge cycles by charging for 8-10 hours, then letting the battery rest for 8-10 hours, repeating 3-5 times as needed. If this does not bring the battery back to life, you need to replace the batteries.

From reading through your settings, they appear to be identical. Except, I am not certain what Vox 2 is, or B5 0. If the number 2 beside VOX is a setting, you should set it to off or zero. Otherwise, they appear like they should work. (VOX = voice activation, and when enabled will cause a radio to transmit when it hears a sound, voice, etc.)
If you are using an audio device such as an earpiece or headset, be certain you are plugging it in with the radio turned OFF.
Lack of transmit can also be a sign of a bad battery or bad battery connection. You might try swapping the batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio.
If these are less than one year old, use the number in your user guide to contact Motorola for a possible warranty replacement.

Best regards.

The battery may be dead. If it was indicating it was charging for 48 hours and still did not work, you can be pretty sure it will not charge again.

Parts for the small size TalkAbout line of radios were never offered to dealers, other than batteries, chargers and accessories. Your best option is to purchase a used radio from ebay to scalp for parts, or possibly by contacting a vendor such as www.wirelesspro.com, who deals in lots of the smaller TalkAbout radios. They may have some which have been scrapped for parts.

The larger TalkAbout line of radios, such as the TalkAbout Distance and Distance DPS are repairable radios, and many parts for them are still available.

Best regards.

Here is a link to the user guide http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf The call tones and roger beep settings are listed on page 24-25. There are a variety of things which will cause the radio to make sounds. For best results shut off the roger beep, call tones and then lock your keypad.

Best regards.

You may have the interference eliminator code set differently on the radios. You must have the frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) programmed the same as one another for the radios to work together.

For basic operation set the code and Qt filter (if any) to OFF (zero).

Best regards.

Hold the + (plus) button while turning on the radio to turn the Roger Beep on or off.

No, T5700 radios operate on UHF FM frequencies in the 450-470 MHz range. CBs will not communicate with them.

One of the main causes of static can be a bad battery. If you are using rechargeable batteries you need to replace them every 14-18 months. If you are using alkaline batteries, they have been known not to fully power the radio once your cross the 10 hour mark. Your radio would then be operating in somewhat of a brown out. This would lead to static.

Another cause of static is simply being nearly out of range of the other radio(s).

The burst of white noise at the end of Rx on some radios can be rather annoying. On the basic talkabout radios there is nothing which can be done to solve the problem, other than replacing the radio.

Hello Krisso,

Your best bet is likely going to be contacting Motorola directly. Their parts department may have the charger available. Their product support number is 1-800-353-2729.

Best Regards,
Ken
