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.

RCA LCD TV locked up.


Most RCA sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

  1. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Can't Switch Frequencies


Your radio needs to be programmed to match the radios at work. Currently your channel 3 frequency is the same as work, but your code on channel 3 is not. Here is a step by step explanation:

1) Turn on the WORK radio, watch the upper right corner of the screen. It will flash the frequency number, followed by the code number. Note these numbers.

2) Put your radio in programming mode by turning on the radio while holding down the PTT and MON buttons. Continue to hold these buttons until the 'noise' stops.

3) Press the MENU button once. Now, using the + or - buttons choose the frequency number.

4) Press the MENU button to lock in your frequency. This will take you to your CODE. Press the + or - button to choose your CODE.

5) Press your MENU button to lock in your CODE.

6) At this point you can walk through the rest of programming features or simply shut the radio off and begin using it. Note: You will know when you are at the end of the programmable features because it will chirp a different beep than you have been hearing when you've pressed the MENU button to lock in your new setting.
