Question about Motorola CLS 1110 (1 Channel) 2-Way Radio
Posted by Anonymous on
Exactly correct, the push to talk drains a battery more than receiving. Your battery is most likely bad. Lithium batteries do not last as long (in years) as the older Ni Cads or Nickel Metals. Batteries are relatively cheap compared to replacing the radio. We only sell Motorola brand batteries for this model after some poorly made after market batteries performed poorly. You get what you pay for. Also, holding the radio in the charger and transmitting is not advised, so don't do it! The charger does not have enough power to run the radio on transmit and it could damage the radio.

The battery is bad or not charged. Check your charger and charger/battery connection. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser and try charging again. With a new battery it may take up to 3 charge cycles to fully charge your battery.

If indeed radio #1 has a mic problem, this may be confirmed by trying an external speaker/microphone plugged into the accessory jack. If still a no, then its not the mic but possibly the modulator circuitry. If there is transmit audio with the external mic and hence internal mic is defective, the unit would have to be pried open and the defective component replaced. The internal mic is normally an electrofet 2-3 terminal soldered to a shielded wire and physically attached to the front plate.
Alternately, another possibility is that radio #2 has its Interference Eliminator Code enabled/activated. This is indicated by the presence of small sized digits on the top right of display. If this is the case and no similar digits are displayed in radio #1, then radio #2 will not allow any received transmission to be heard. Along the same line of reasoning, if the code is activated on both radios signified by the presence of the 2 small digits, and radio #1 has a problem with its CTCSS (code) generator, then it would also prevent reception of radio #2. A way to verify this is by deactivating/disabling the Interference Eliminator Codes on both radios.
On certain occasion, it is also possible that radio #2 has a defective speaker. You should be able to verify this by plugging in an external speaker to the accessory jack of radio #2.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

A beep when pressing the PTT button could be a low or bad battery indicator. It takes more energy to transmit than to rest idly or receive. Try a known good battery in the radio and see if it corrects the problem.
If the battery is not the issue, then you may have a programming problem. Typically radios with a blank or unprogrammed channel will beep when placed on that channel. Try programming the radio to a different channel and see if the beep still occurs. If the beep occurs on many program settings you may have a deeper issue.
