Three things come to mind:
1) The radio is receiving, hence the light, but you may have a different PL code than the other radio and it is muting the transmission. Check your programming to be certain both radios are programmed alike. The red light indicates activity on your frequency.
2) Your radio may have a problem with the receive side of the radio or a bad speaker.
3) The transmitting radio may have a problem with transmit. This can be a sign of a bad battery. Swap batteries and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery. (It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so loss of transmit is common with a bad battery.)
Best regards.

SOURCE: radios dont recieve from each other..

The buttons you are referring to are programmable buttons, and it would depend on how they are programmed. In most cases depressing the buttons will not change the radio in such a way you could not communicate. When changes are made, they are changed back to normal by shutting the radio off and turning it back on. See page four of the owners manual.

You might want to read the section on the light on the radio on page 3. It may help.

Here is a copy of the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/governmentandenterprise/contentdir/en_GB/Files/ProductInformation/6864110B13A_GP340_BUG_Multilingual.pdf

Other questions which come to mind: Have you changed antennas recently? Have you tried the radios together on all channels? Have you tried the radios in a different area? Have the radios been reprogrammed recently? Do you use a repeater? If so, the repeater may be not working or malfunctioning, or you are out of range, check with your service provider.

SOURCE: one radio not recieving

You need to check your interference eliminator code. It sounds like they are not set to the same code. Also, if your radio has a Qt filter, set it to zero.

Kenwood ddx373bt the red light flashes won't turn on. I pressed the reset button nothing works?

Check the 10 amp fuse on the rear of the radio. As its recieving a memory live power feed but not a ignition live feed hence the flashing red light. If the fuse isnt blown you need to then check the ignition live power feed cable as its probably open circuit did you use a wiring harness adaptor?

Ranger superstar 33 no recieve

If you're still getting loud squelch noise but do not receive on any channel, you must check the RF from the antenna to the audio stage(not included). There must be more than just one RF stage in this radio. Let me know what you find.

My cb transmits with a very weak signal and won't recieve anything. The weather band recieves with no problems. I couldn't even pick up a signal on my SWR meter but a friend of mine tested it on his home...

There are a few things that could be wrong. If there is something wrong with the mic, you may not hear anything on the radio. but weather will work.

Other then that, the receive section of the radio could be blown.

Try a new mic, and if it doesn't work, then there is something blown in the radio. It needs a tech.

Neither Radio Transmits or Recieves

Have you checked that both radios are in the same Channel and the same Squelch Code? are the batteries ok? any rust in the battery contacts? Some FRS radios gets a Malfuntion, and the syntom is like that, check this first
