You might try contacting Giant Intl. 1-800-638-5119,
[email protected] They produce the radio for Motorola and are able to troubleshoot over the phone or by email. I have read through the manual and did not find anything pertaining to this problem.
Best regards

You do not mention the type of Motorola radio so this answer will be general. You may have a problem with your volume potentiometer, Receive (Rx) sensitivity, or a speaker problem.
The volume pot on a 2-way radio is a common failure item, and will after repeated use possibly fail, or get dead spots. Try backing off your volume to 75% and see if it is louder at this setting. If so, you have a bad volume pot.
Rx sensitivity can be caused by various internal problems with the radio,and some models are more prone to this than others. Operating your radio at full volume most of the time can bring this issue to the forefront. (Tip: Try running your radios at 80-90% volume vs. full volume to alleviate this problem.) If this is your issue, your effected radios are in need of repair. Most repair facilities (including ours) can correct Rx sensitivity in most models during a repair.
Speaker problems: If you work in an environment where dirt, debris or metal shavings can get inside the speaker, your speaker may fail over time. Or if you run your radio at full volume the majority of the time it can cause your speaker to fail.
Best regards.

You might try, we have found them to carry most TalkAbout accessories and batteries. Before ordering battery packs, you might try switching your existing good battery to the other radio and see if it solves the problem. This would assure you that it is indeed a battery problem.

Check your interference eliminator code. It must match on both radios.

If they're not exactly the same model they may have different channel indexes. If the "oddball" is a combination FRS/GMRS or if the other 3 are, they'll have different numbering. As long as you can talk between all of them, just make note of the "right" numbers when they're working.

Don't know your capabilities but if it were me I would open the phone and check the contacts for transmit button. Sometimes contacts get corroded and need cleaning or it just may be no connection at all and a adjustment of the contacts will resolve the issue.

Only the Li-Ion batteries designed to work with the radio can be charged inside the radio. If you have Li-Ion rechargeable batteries such as those you can buy along side the
Alkalines in a store, the answer is no. This type would need to be charged in the style of charger made for recharging this brand/type of battery

A replacement antenna is not available from Motorola. You can re-coiling the wire and placing something over it to simulate the original antenna, or wrap it in electrical tape. Exposed the coil will oxidize and the antenna will begin to fail and have shortened range.

The other option is to get another of the same model from ebay and use it for a replacement or parts for your existing unit.

Best regards.

Hi Brian,

Yes they bear the Motorola brand, but look for where they were made and you'll find CHINA.

These are made en-mass under license for a fixed price and of DUDIOUS standard, firstly like any radio made in China, they eat batteries if they are hand held, Oricom is another terible brand both HH and base versions.

Support is availabe if you speak the language, manuals are available in CHINGLISH, and problems with Chinese made radios continue to fill sites like this, looking for help.

I too got stung with chinese made monsters, I was stupid enough to buy three different brands and within 3 months of working them, they began to fail, and the warranty is useless outside of China.

Sorry, Brian but you like myself have a lemon.

Best advice, do as I did, spend a few extra dollars on ebay and buy well known brands made anywher but China.
