Powering off issue

I'm having an issue with the power button. I bought two walkie talkie's. One, all I have to do is hold the power button and a sec or two later, I hear a beep and then the unit goes off as it is suppose to. The other unit, hold down the power button and nothing happens but the channel fades a little. Any suggestions? All help is appreciated.

Are you sure the battery is charged, tray to swap the batteries, and check if there is any rust or dirt on the battery contact on the radio and the batteries too. Please let me know if this help Ernesto

I have slyvania walkie talkies model no.fbs201 working but not sure how to turn off and on..

I could not find your model on the internet. Sylvania was never a walkie talkie manufacturer, so they were made by someone else. The ones I found on eBay had an off/on switch tied to the up down keys. Try pressing and HOLD for about 3 seconds the left side bottom button, then release. If that did not power it on, try the other buttons but be certain to HOLD for about 3 seconds since the button is dual purpose.

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.

One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

Use a audiovox walkie talkie

What is your question about using the walkie talkie? These are standard FRS low power walkie talkies. You need to set both to the same channel. Turn both on. Push the transmit button and speak into the microphone which is on the face of the radio. You should hear the voice in the other walkie talkie.

Note; all of these FRS talkies have substantially less range than advertised. They should provide reliable service within about 1/4 mile line of sight, no more. In an urban environment with lots of buildings you will get less.

My Uniden walkie talkie keeps saying L very time I push a button

You've set the keylock feature on your walkie talkie. From the Uniden manual...

KEYLOCK

ON/OFF Press and hold the call/lock key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display. To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call/lock again. Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

On the binatone walkie talkies (black and orange) how do you get the lock off? Thanks

It's difficult to answer without knowing which model, I know the Marina 300 came in black and orange however a few others have also had that colour variant. To remove the keylock from the Marina 300 you PRESS AND HOLD THE MENU BUTTON UNTIL THE KEY ICON DISAPPEARS. Note: The PTT, Call and Power will remain functional when keylock is on.
