The constant green light generally means the radio is in receive mode, or is receiving a transmission. You might check your antenna to be certain it is properly attached, is free from defect, and is seated properly in the antenna port. Also, just for test purposes, try your radio at different volume settings, as the on/off volume potentiometer might have a shorted or dead spot.

If none of the above solve the problem, your radio is likely in need of repair. (Typically around $69 flat rate) If your radio is still under warranty (1 year) return it to the dealer where you purchased it for warranty.

Best regards.

We have a problem with one of the hand sets. It will not transmit. The other one works fine. The TX will come on, and we can hear it coming across the problem hand set. The problem hand set shows the RX ....

  • Check the settings of the CTCSS tones on both radios and make sure they are the same. It would seem if you are hearing a transmission from the other radio but cannot transmit out of that same radio than that radio is malfunctioning. It may be time for a new pair.

I have a radio TK 701 H. The antenna is a homemade J with copper tubing. The power source is a Macromex transformer that has adjustable voltage. It transfers from 120 volts ac to variable volts dc,...

It's possible some of the repeaters you're hearing are using CTCSS tone squelch. The other people won't hear you unless you have the right tone selected. 15 V is too high for most radios. They're rated at 13.8, so turn you power supply down to something between 12 and 13.8.

I cannot stay connected to internet, my model 2701HG-B 2wire at&t dsl will start flashing red then disconnect me from the internet or my game site, how can i get this to stay fluently connected please!

You might want to try disconnecting everything EXCEPT the power cord. If you still get the red power light (it should stay there forever) then bring the gateway to Radio Shack or somewhere they have a 5 volt DC @ 2 amp power supply and plug it in for 5 to 10 minutes and see if the power light then stays green. If it stays green then all you need is a new power supply! If not, then the gateway is fried. Mine keeps going from a solid green power light to a flashing green power light and I can hear a relay click every 2 minutes at which time a pop-up say "ethernet line disconnected". I tried new power supply etc. to no avail! It is fried after 1.5 years! No more 2wire for me!

I can't remember how to get the green light for my saltwater generator going and i can't find the intructions. don't remember how to get it going.

Unlock the keypad by pressing and holding the "down arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep and then the "up arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep.

Set the number of hours you want it to run by adjusting the time display using the "up arrow" or "down arrow" until you have the correct number of hours.

After setting the time re-lock the keypad by pressing and holding the "down arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep and then the "up arrow" for 5-seconds until you hear a long beep? Several minutes later the Green LED should come on indicating the cycle has started.

Read this very carefully. Turn off your ps3 from the back. Then turn it back on wait unit the light is red. Turn on the system through the front keep holding the power on. You will hear a beep one time that just tell you that the ps3 is powering on keep holding the button until you hear the second beep this will rest your video setting. If that dosnt work call me at sony

Hand-held radio

Hello Think you have to make sure that both radios have the correct encode and decode CTSS or DPL, if you dont select the encode for one of them the other one just will light the green led but will not recieve. Also make sure that the speaker is working correctly. Check your programming parameters one by one. Good luck
