Having a problem using any channel above 4 on my TK3101. All I get is a tone that doesn't change when I key either monitor or PTK button. Do not have as I set up quiet tones on all channels, but as soon as I finish and turn radioes back on I get the tone. Both units are set to same quiet tone.
I have worked on the TK 3101's and that tone is when the channel does not have a frequency.
It is a PC programmable radio. I assume you purchased the radio used and the previous owner had channels 5-15 "blank"
I can program it for you if you needed.

Re: tone on channels 5-15
Personally I dont Know this radios, but you said that above channel 4 you get a tone a continuos tone I guess, I think that this radios has the PLL unlocked, that is a problem related with the circuit that generates the frequencies.

1) I have a Linksys router in my home and was having connection problems. After a little research I have found out some things that you can do to make the best connection possible. First use a program called Network Stumbler and scan the wireless networks within your reception area, note what channel your network is on as well as surrounding networks. Write down what channels are being used. Also note the SSID names.
2) Next log into your router's administration account and navigate to the wireless settings. If there is another network nearby with the saame SSID as yours (which could have been left as default settings from the factory) then you will need to change the name of your wireless SSID to something else. I had to do this on my network.
3) Click on the advanced settings and change the channel to one that isn't being used by another network nearby. Example if your network is on channel 4, and so is your neighbor's, then I would change it to channel 6 to put a little space between networks. You have between 1 to channel 11 to pick from.
4) If you have done the above things and are still having connection problems, network interference can be caused by cordless phones, microwave ovens and any electronic that work around the 2.4 Gz range.
This radio has several available frequencies built into the unit:
1 - 464.5000
2 - 464.5500
3 - 467.7625 *
4 - 467.8125 *
5 - 467.8500
6 - 467.8750
7 - 467.9000
8 - 467.9250
You would need to read out each channel to determine what each of the 4 channels is programmed to. Reading out is easy on this unit. With the radio turned off, select the channel with the channel knob, then hold in the PTT button while turning the radio on, immediately it will tell you the frequency number, (if you want to change the freq you can use the PTT button to walk your way up through the numbers to the number you'd like), then if you press the monitor button it will lock in your chosen frequency and it will tell you the private line code (if zero it is turned off), then press the monitor button again to lock everything in. Do this on each channel and you will know how your 4 channel radio is programmed.
Note: This radio is a wideband radio and only a few were produced with narrowband capability. After Jan. 2013 you are required to use narrowband only in the USA. If your MU24 radio has two RED dots above the word Spirit it is narrowband on only frequencies 3 and 4. If your radio has no red dots on the label your radio is wideband only.

If you are connected to a high definition cable box or satellite tv box you would not need to turn to channel 3 on your television. The television would need to be in the right input either component or hdmi. If someone connected the tv to the cable box or satellite tv box with a coax cable like an antenna cable then the tv channels will be available on channel 3 as well but they will not display in high definition. You change channels with the cable box/satellite tv box remote control. If the above is not correct and you are only connected to an antenna cable and not to a cable box or satellite tv box you will need to complete a channel search from the tv menu. It sounds like you are using a cable box/satellite tv box and that the tv is on the wrong input. If the cable box/satellite tv box is not working (i.e. just a black screen) on your television than that is a different matter entirely.
your power button lose its contact or misplaced to its proper position. open your remote control and turn back your power button it its correct positioning. having a new one is probably the instant solution to your problem.
