Motorola Radio Communications - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Bought a used Motorloa Mag
Your radios will need to be programmed by a Motorola dealer to match one another. (Usually $15-$25.) The software used to program the radios is a Motorola proprietary software and not for sale, but most dealers have a subscription to it.
The loud buzzing indicates the channel you are on is not programmed.
Can the Motorola factory replace the battery in the H730 headset?
It is possible to have the battery in your Motorola H730 headset replaced, but it would likely need to be done by a third-party repair service as the battery is not typically user-replaceable.
Motorola does not offer an official repair service for the H730 headset, so you may need to find a third-party repair service that specializes in repairing Bluetooth headsets. Be aware that third-party repairs may void any remaining warranty on the device.
You can also consider purchasing a new headset if you prefer not to have it repaired.
I have two older Motorola Walkies Talkabout FR60 wont send or receive and a T5820 with the rubber broken off the antenna is is cost feasible to fix or not
I believe for the FR60 walkie-talkies, if they are not sending or receiving, the issue could be related to the antenna, battery, or internal components. You can try replacing the batteries and/or antennas to see if that resolves the issue.
As for the T5820 walkie-talkie, if the rubber on the antenna is broken, it's likely that the antenna itself is also damaged. In this case, you can try replacing the antenna with a new one. Antennas are typically available for purchase online or at electronics stores.
In terms of cost, repairing older walkie-talkies like these may not always be cost-effective. If the repairs are extensive or require replacement of major components, it may be more practical to purchase new walkie-talkies instead.
Below are options of the options of walkie-talkies you can buy;
Motorola sliver headset won't power on even when the green lights are solid
There are a few things you can try to troubleshoot this issue with your Motorola Silver headset not powering on:
- Make sure that the headset is fully charged by connecting it to the charger for at least 30 minutes.
- Check the battery contacts in the headset and charger to ensure that they are clean and free of debris.
- Try resetting the headset by holding down the power button for 15 seconds.
- Try a different charger or charging cable to see if that resolves the issue.
- Make sure that the headset is not in pairing mode.
- Check the headset manual for any information regarding troubleshoot, or if there are any specific instructions for turning on the headset.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it may be a problem with the headset itself and you may need to contact Motorola for further assistance.

Can you use the Motorola XPR 4550 as a police scanner?
The Motorola XPR 4550 is a two-way radio, not a scanner. Scanners are devices that can listen to a wide range of frequencies, whereas two-way radios are designed for communication between a limited number of specific devices on specific frequencies. However, you can use a scanner to listen to the frequency that the Motorola XPR 4550 is transmitting on.
Motorola XTL5000. encoding is working but decoding is not. If you encode a different tone on another radio it still hears it.
El problema de decodificaci?n de la radio Motorola XTL5000 puede deberse a una configuraci?n incorrecta de la radio. Aseg?rate de que la radio est? configurada correctamente para la codificaci?n y decodificaci?n. Por ejemplo, aseg?rate de que los ajustes de codificaci?n sean los mismos tanto para la codificaci?n como para la decodificaci?n. Tambi?n debes asegurarte de que la radio est? configurada en la misma frecuencia de la otra radio. Si esto no soluciona el problema, prueba la antena para asegurarte de que est? funcionando correctamente. Si la antena est? bien, podr?as necesitar reemplazar la placa de circuito impreso (PCB) del receptor para solucionar el problema.

05/94 error on 05 control head
Hi,This error message indicates an incorrect connection from main radio and your remote head, Check that you have installed correctly and that all plugs and fittings are snug and not loose.Otherwise, the remote is cactus, that could be another issue, try without the remote and see if the radio works, the answer lies in either of those.Hope this helps you.Cheers,Peter

You could try taking out the batteries and putting it in rice for a couple of days and see if that helps.
I got one of my Motorola 2-way radios wet and after I dried it out everything seemed to work except the microphone; my suspicion is that the transducer needed to be replaced but I found that I could get used Motorola 2-way radios on eBay inexpensively enough that it made more sense to buy some of those than it did to try to repair the radio I got wet.
If you think you might be prone to dropping your two-radios in the water in the future, Motorola makes some two-way radios that are waterproof.
