What is the polarity of the jac/mic so I can charge rechargeable batteries by ACDC adaptor

Hi,On you're AC adapter unit, there should, if it's a good one, have a switch with a + & - signs indicating the polarity you require to use.Further to this, does your radio have an AC recharge point. Some of these units don't have this capability, but in your case it may.This is usually found on the side of the radio.If there is no such point, then what you need is to buy rechargeable batteries with the appropriate charger, you can't just use any charger for these batteries, else you'll damage them.I hope this helps you.Best regards,Peter

Have pair of FRS14ND radios, with charger. One

Similar problem, solved when dirty contacts were cleaned, look for some corrosion on either the battery pack or in the radio battery holder. Use very fine grit sand paper.

also check to see if a tab on the battery holder contact is bent inward (radio dropped perhaps)

They will not communicate with eacher other. they

Your problem is vague. You could have one not transmitting or one not receiving, or one not doing both. Can you test these independently? Do either of them communicate with another radio?
What you really need is to put these radios on a service monitor and see what each is actually doing in terms of frequency signal generated, power output, deviation, sensitivity....
A radio repair shop should be able to check these out in five minutes

The last known contact information for Columbia Telecom is as follows:

Headquarters Location
174 Milbar Blvd., Farmingdale, NY 11735, United States

The bad news is, the company itself doesn't seem to exist anymore, other than bad consumer reviews and issues with company practices. The website is no longer valid either.

I have a pair of walkie talkies, rechargable, but one of them wont work with the battery pack. Both battery packs work in the other one, but this one will only work with 5 AAA batteries. Any ideas out

If your rechargeable battery pack takes a different battery tray than the alkaline, you possibly have a bad connection in the battery tray. If they appear to use the same battery contacts, look at where the rechargeable battery touches compared to the alkaline. There may be a problem in this area. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser to insure your radio is free of debris on the contacts.Best regards.
