swap batteries if does not work this unit should need repair or replace, display blinking can be produced for power failure ( battery, contacts, circuits) or can be a controller issue.

While there might be a multitude of answers to this question. The first would be the radio is in need of repair, or not programmed correctly.

Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'
From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.
You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.
You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.
It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.

Short of having a radio tech look at the radio, I would suggest looking at the grill and mic hole to see if there is dirt or debris blocking the hole.

To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.
By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.
If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

Not sure what you want.....VHF band ius approximatly 130mhz to 175 mhz..... in that VHF band there is a commercial VHF band aprox. 155 mhz to 175...... the amateur radio vhf band is aprox. 135 to 150mhz.
With amateur radio, any freq in that range can be used...... with commercial radio the FCC cangive a company any freq. in that range also.
If you are looking for FRS/GMRS frequencies they are UHF freqs not VHF.
So I'm not sure exactly what you want......sounds like you might want to program in FRS freqs into an Icom amateur radio. If thats the case you will need an Icom that will do UHF freqs.
