Welcome to FixYa.

  1. Make sure the batteries are properly charged and is not yet worn out. Re-chargeable batteries of more than 2 years cannot hold the charge properly anymore. This affects the performance of the 2-way radio. The "TALK" functionality of the radio uses more energy than anything else.
  2. Clean the pinholes of the mouth piece and speaker of the radios (both radios). Dirt/dust covering the mouth piece will block the sound from going to the microphone properly. Dirt/dust covering the speaker will prevent the sound from going out properly.
If it does not resolve the problem, the next thing is not resolvebable: You either have a bad volume potentiometer (internal volume device) or your speaker is bad.

Thank you for using FixYa.
Have a great day.'

You will need to look at either the instructions for the "roger" beep or the Call Tones. Not certain which on you are describing.

Here is a link to the 5200 series user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T5XxX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Check your Frequency, interfernence Code eliminator and Qt filter (if any). These all should match each other on all your radios.

Another issue which will cause a radio to receive but not transmit is a low or bad battery. It takes more energy to transmit, than to receive.

Best regards.

You are either describing a CALL TONE ( The Call Tone obtains others’ attention before you start talking) or the ROGER BEEP (When you turn on this feature, your two-way radio transmits a unique tone when you
finish transmitting. It’s like saying “Roger” or “Over” and lets others know you’re
finished talking.)

To shut off the roger beep, hold in the plus + button while turning the radio on.

The CALL TONE may or may not be a feature of your T5210 radio. I am unable to open the online manual for it to tell for certain. If it does have a CALL TONE feature you would access it by pressing the MENU button until you see a "CA" on the screen along with a number. Using the plus or minus button change the setting to zero, followed by pressing the menu button or the PTT button. The zero setting is equivalent to OFF.

Sorry to hear of your difficulty. There are a few things which come to mind. First, if you have only two radios, check the good radio to see if anything is plugging or covering the mic hole. Then if the good radio is not the problem, check the bad radio for debris or something covering the speaker holes. If this does not reveal a problem, the next issues are possible, but not resolveable: You either have a bad volume potentiometer (internal volume device) or your speaker is bad.

Kids will be kids, and if you also remember back when you were a kid, you probably did the sames things the kids did. (I know I did)
Kids like to play with the knobs, push buttons, turn the dial...Maybe if you checked to see that Both radios are set to the same frequency.
Check the Channel & Interference Eliminator Codes. The dials are located under the battery compartment.
Good Luck, and don't yell at them...........
