Question about Motorola CP200 Two Way Radio
HEllo, I have a Motorola Radius CP200. When I turn the radio on a quick dull low pitched noise sounds. It also makes the noise when you press any button. Light flashes red quickly once when you turn the radio on. Doesn't transmit or receive. I have tried replacing the battery, which does not change the situation.
If the sound is continuous, like a long tone humming, it is possible you are on a channel which is not programmed. Try changing your channel knob to a different channel and see if the sound changes.
If the sound is not continous, and only happens upon pressing a button, we are not certain what you are experiencing without seeing the radio first hand.
If it were the battery you would get a low battery beep and then the radio would shut itself down. This can happen from a bad battery or a low battery. If this were the situation, you should check your charger and be certain the light comes on and stays on when the radio is placed on the charger. (Note: your radio should always be turned off when on the charger.) A quick test would be to swap the battery with a known good radio and see if you have the same problem. If so, you know it is not a battery or charging problem.
If none of these items help, send or bring the radio to a Motorola repair shop for a quick analysis.

Motorola Talkabouts usually a have a CODE you can set for each channel. This is like a TPL / DPL code. If its not set the same for both radios then other radio may not receive.
GP300. Assuming they are programmed to talk to each other, ie RX and TX of each on the same frequency or they may talk through a repeater and that the TP/ DPL code are correct. If you have the Speaker icon crossed through they are probably muted, but in this case you should be able to unmute them from the keypad. Only other thing is if they are programmed for Selective Call, then they would only unmute on a call which contains their ID #. There several Selective call systems, MDC, Select V , Quick call are just some. Europe usually opts for a certain type of Select V. US uses MDC.

It is possible your radio is not programmed, or has a bad/old battery.
It is normal for the side buttons 1 and 2 to beep when depressed to indicate you turned the feature on/off. Each of these buttons has the ability to be programmed a long and a short press feature.
If your radio beeps when your press the PTT button, on any or all channels, it indicates a low or nearly dead battery. Check your battery date code to see if the battery needs replaced.
If your radio emits a long tone on a channel, that channel is not programmed to function.
If your radio beeps a single beep when you turn it on, this is normal.
Charge your radio completely overnight, with the radio turned off. See if this solves the problem. If not, try a new/different battery to see if it will solve the issue. If not, drop by your local dealer and let them look at the unit.
