  • Couple things this could be.
  1. First thing is to make sure the radio is seated properly in the charger and that all the contacts are making contact and not dirty.
  2. The other thing this could be is that the battery is bad. Or in the least the capacity for the battery is extremely bad and not reliable.
  3. If the contacts look good and it's sitting on the charger proper than you will need to get another battery pack. Sorry.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

It sounds like it has gone into a protection mode. Pull the battery for a few minutes, or until the radio is at room temperature and then try again.

The CTCSS (tone squelch) is probably turned on. If it is, you must have the same tone set on both the transmitters and receivers

Sounds like it's stuck in transmit.

Hi, yeah i have had a similar problem with an icom battery i replaced it then it was fine.

This means that you need an older version of software. to program the radio. When it comes to Kenwood the newer version software will not program the older FPU Version radios.

Its most likely was programmed with a rx but no tx. Meaning it can recieve but not transmit, you can fix this with the programing software.

The TK280 portable is a trunking/conventional two way. It does not support digital communication. There is no upgrade available short of a new radio. By the way...new digital radios are very pricey so be prepared to spend some $$$. Good luck.

Your manual can be found on this website.
Good Luck to you.
