Motorola Talkabout T5500 Menu button doesn't work

I can't get the menu button to work. No matter how long I hold it down, the menu won't lock, flash the channel numbers or anything. I am stuck on channel 1-1.

I fixed a similar defect on the menu button of my Motorola T5500 by pressing it repeatedly many times. It worked again.

How do I unlock a Motorola talkabout

Press and hold the Menu button (the center section with the + and - buttons to the sides) until you hear a beep (3 seconds or so). After that, when you press and release the Menu button, the Channel number should flash indicating that you can change the channel. In the future, you can toggle the keypad lock by pressing and holding the Menu button.

You can find more information on the Keypad Lock feature in the manual. See page 14 and page 21. The manual is available from ManualsLib: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/106993/Motorola-Talkabout-T5320.html . For the diagram of the Motorola Talkabout T5320, see https://www.manualslib.com/manual/106993/Motorola-Talkabout-T5320.html?page=14#manual . The Keypad Lock is described here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/106993/Motorola-Talkabout-T5320.html?page=21#manual .

I hope this helps. I usually use my Motorola Talkabout radios with the keypad lock active. I hit the various button accidentally when working in the field.

Can I turn off the beep on the cxt195?

You mean the "roger beep"? You can try the steps below from this site>>http://science.opposingviews.com/turn-roger-beep-off-motorola-walkie-talkie-10001.html
Step 1
Turn the Motorola Talkabout two-way radio on by pressing the "Power" button.
Step 2
Hold down the "Menu" button for several seconds until an icon appears on the screen. "On/Off" begins to flash on the screen.
Step 3
Press the "Minus" button to turn the "Roger" beep off. If you want to turn it back on, press the "Plus" button.
Step 4
Tap the "PTT" button to save the change. You may also press "Menu" to save the change and completely exit Menu mode

Hope it helps...

Problems setting the Interference eliminator code for a Motorola MR350 Talkabout

Holding in the MENU a long press will turn the LOCK on or off. You will need the menu unlocked for the following...

However, if you press the MENU button repeatedly, not holding it in a long press, you will walk through all the menu items, and there you will see when the CODE number begin to flash. You will also see setting for other features as you walk though the menu. Refer to your manual for these settings.
