Model T5210. I have two
Welcome to FixYa.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
Thank you for using FixYa.
Have a great day.'

How do i stop my radio from making that bloop
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
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.

Very low volume on T5210
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.

2 Way Radios not talking to one another
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...........
