Two issues come to mind:
1) The radio has a different private line (PL) code than the other radios.
2) The radio needs repair. Possibly a bad speaker, or other problem. Try plugging an audio device into the radio and see if you can hear then. If so, you have a bad speaker.

Best regards.

Motorola mh230r 1 works fine the other transmits but won't receive.

Check your programming. It sounds like you have chosen a code number in one radio and the other radio has code turned off (zero).

Voice recognition on motorola t5500

That means that it will Transmit, like pressing the "Talk" button, BUT ONLY when it hears the "Voice" it was "Trained" on. So this is so No-one else could use this unit. With this method. You "Identify" yourself, and after that every-time you speak, the Transmitter is keyed, and the channel is opened and the voice sent, when you stop talking,it goes back to receive, again. Some are less sophisticated, in that they are really a "Sound Switch" and when the unit "Hears" a "Voice" it, switches OFF receive, and ON the transmitter, and Transmits the audio out.

Motorola t5720 one buzzes and you can't hear transmission. It transmits to its partner just fine. It just won't receive transmission form its partner, just a loud buzz

Try trading the batteries between the units and see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, replace the battery pack. If the problem persists, you have a defect radio, which needs replaced.

One receives and transmitts and the other one only receives. Tell me why.

Check your interference code eliminator and Qt filter. The one which transmits & receives is probably set with these in the zero or off position, while the other has it with a number or turned on. Here is a copy of the manual:

One of both Devices doesn't receive

Lo que le llamas prueba de recepcion me parece que es abrir el squelch, me da la impresion que si funciona el radio con el SQ abierto, si recibe en este estado aparentemente tendra problemas con este circuito, este radio si no estoy mal, no tiene codigos de eliminacion de ruido, revisa ese dato ya que para que el radio reciba si posee esta funcion debera de coincidir tanto en canal como en ese codigo.(Mismo canal, mismo codigo en ambos radios).
Revisa si el radio tiene codigos de eliminacion, si no, este radio tendra problemas de SQ, me parece que no podras hacer mucho por el.
