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.

Best regards.

SOURCE: Neither radio will receive or send

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.

SOURCE: Motorola CP200, radio just beeps when im pressing any button.

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.

You probably need to have the radio re-programmed. There is no other way to reset it.

Why motorola radius cp200 flashes red while charging?


Typically when the charger flashes red you have one of the following conditions:
1) The battery is simply too low to charge. Leave it on the charger for a few hours to see if it resolves. If it is a new battery return the battery for a replacement.
2) Your battery is not making good connection. Clean the battery and charger contacts with a pencil eraser. Check your contacts in the charge itself to make certain one isn't damaged or broken.
3) Your battery has an internal short. Test the battery on another charger to see if you get the same result. If so, replace the battery. 4) If you have a charger problem, the best test is to try another battery in the charger. Reminder: be certain the insert is turned the correct direction for the battery you are using.
Best regards.

ONE OF MY CP200 RADIOS HAS A STEADY SQUELCH SOUND ON ALL 4 CHANNELS, HOW CAN I FIX THIS?


One possible problem is a bad battery. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit and see if the problem is solved. If it is not the battery, then your radio is likely in need of repair.

Compatibility


If your CP200 has a model number beginning with AAH50R it can be programmed to match the RDU2080d. If your CP200 model number begins with AAH50K, then the answer is no.

The letter R in the model number indicates it is UHF, and on the RDU2080d, the letter U in the model name indicates it is UHF. Both of these radios are programmable, and could be reprogrammed to match one another, if both UHF.

Your radio is in need of repair. Typically you can find flat rate repair for the CP200 style radio for around $85. You may have a bad speaker, or other internal issue.

My Motorola Radius CP200 has lost all channels that was set by dealer is there a way to reset back to factory settings?


It is seldom a CP200 loses frequencies/PL code settings. It is more likely the radio has a bad battery or another issue. The only way to reprogram the radio is by taking it back to a Motorola dealer, as they are all dealer programmable only. Sorry.

Best regards.
