Motorola t5000 If the eliminator code is set to 0 both radios receive the transmission.
Once we set the radios to any eliminator code only one receives transmissions - have double checked that both are on same channel and same eliminator code, etc.. have tried various combinations of codes and channels

Re: motorola t5000
If you have already checked both radios have the same code and channel both radios must reicive and transmit between each other
check if you have any QT in any display this is a third condition to reicive.

Your frequency and your code are two separate settings. When you walk your way through the menu the frequency choice will come before the code choices. Frequencies will count from 1-14 or 1-22. Codes (aka interference eliminator) will have may more choices and one of them will be Zero. It appears from looking at the T4500 manual that it does not offer "code". So on this one the code is already "zero" (off). On your T5000 you should be able to navigate to the CODE using the menu button, then use your plus or minus button to get you to "zero", then press the PTT button to save your choice.
Our first thought when reading your dilemma is to check the Menu Lock. Holding the Menu button in for 3 seconds will lock/unlock your buttons. You should have an icon depicting a lock displayed on the screen.
Couldn't find the user guide for the T5000, but did find the T4900 and the T5100. You might try looking in them to see how to restore your settings. Not all TalkAbout radios seem to have a quick reset function. You may need to restore the unit by taking it back to a basic mode. Shut off special features such as your Interference Eliminator Code, VOX, Qt filter, Call Alerts, etc.
A few items to check: Be certain both radios are set to the same: Frequency Interference Eliminator Code Qt filter
For a simple test set the Code, Qt filter, and any other special features to off or zero. This will allow you to find out if the radios will work simply on their frequency. Once you establish this, you can add in the features as you need them.
Check your interference eliminator code (aka PL, private line, or code). It is likely set to zero (off) on the T5000s and set to a different number on the T4500s. They must match to work together. Otherwise the one with code turned on will not recognize the other one.
This should help you with programming your T5000 radios to match one another. Be certain the frequency and interference eliminator code match identically. If it has a Qt filter, set it to zero (off), for basic operation.
Constant static can be a sign of a bad or low battery. If the battery is known to be good, try the radios outside the factory setting to see if the problem persists. If you have no problem when you are away from the machinery, you may need to set your interference eliminator code to a number other than zero. This will turn your eliminator ON, which will block out the radio frequency interference caused by the machines.
If the problem persists outside of the factory, then you should try replacing the batteries. OR possibly just cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser.
The method you are using for resetting the radio will take the radio back to the factory default settings. It will not solve the problems listed above. It will only reset the frequency and code back to the original settings.
Check the settings of both your interference code eliminator and your Qt filter (if your model has one). These codes need to match the other radios exactly. If the other radios have a Qt filter and your unit does not, then the Qt filter would need to be shut off on the other units.
Your concern could be the internal speaker of the T5000. This could be verified by attaching an external speaker or a headset compatible with the unit through its accessory jack. Should this be the case, it of course would require replacement. Though Motorola speaker for this model is proprietary in design, those made for Alinco, Icom, Kenwood and/or Yaesu should also work. The only concern would be getting one that will fit the physical mounting limitations of the front cover.
In some instances, it could be the volume control developing blind spots along its carbon pad. A spray from an electronic contact cleaner should do the job (albeit temporary).
It is also possible that the Interference Eliminator Code setting is different with that of the TX radio.
Worst case possibility is a defective electronic component (such as the op amp) which would then require the professional services of a qualified communications technician.
Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
