Motorola Radio Communications - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

It might be that the person or persons on the other end have radios with t Eliminator Code , I call it a pl tone, anyway, if they have theirs turned on they will not be able to here you, this radio that you are using does not have this option. It is like a privacy code that if you dont send the same code they wont here you. Like a locked coded squelch. Even though you are talking they wont here anyone unless they are sending the same code.

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 might try contacting Giant Intl. 1-800-638-5119, [email protected] They produce the radio for Motorola and are able to troubleshoot over the phone or by email. I have read through the manual and did not find anything pertaining to this problem. Best regards

This is likely because your radio's battery has lost enough power that it cannot fully power the headset and the radio both. Or there is a component in the headset or radio which is getting overheated and will not function properly. Try the headset on another radio at the time of failure and see if it is still in failure mode on the other radio. Or try changing the battery to a fully charged battery and see if the headset then functions correctly. These test will help you determine which component is failing.

The FCC ID won’t help you find the info you’re looking for, you’ll need to find the model number and possibly the software version number. This info should be on the back of the unit or maybe inside the battery cover.

The book list the wall adapter to charger NTN1171 as being part number 2580162R01. The description says 13.8VDC 1.5A AC ADAPTER. When googling the part number, it appears someone is selling one on eBay for around $29.99. Retail from Motorola appears to be $125.

Entering Front Panel Feature and Button Configuration Mode If your radio is turned ON, turn it OFF. Press and hold the side programmable button 1, and turn your radio ON. A tone is heard, indicating that your radio is in Feature and Button Configuration Mode. The indicator illuminates and the "BCKLIGHT" is displayed on the radio LCD screen. Whenever the radio is turn on, it initiates a self-test routine which checks the RAM, EEPROM hardware and EEPROM checksum. If Self Test passes, the green LED flashes once and a Self-Test Pass Tone is generated. If unsuccessful, the red LED flashes rapidly and a Self-Test Fail Tone is heard You may need the programing software to do the reset the manual does not give you any info on resetting the radio
