I have the motorola talkabout
I had a similar problem - my Talkabouts would not transmit - after checking the interference codes, qt, etc, it turns out the rechargeable batteries weren't able to handle the 1-watt mode. I switched to another FRS channel that only transmitted at .5 watts, and that seems to have cured the problem, but the range is probably reduced. With another set, I chucked (recycled) the rechargeables and placed 3 new AAA's in and it worked like a champ for a long time. Hope this helps

Only 1 of three transmits
You do not mention which model of TalkAbout radio you have, so we will correspond in general terms. If you have the user guide, read the section describing the "interference code eliminator" or "privacy code". Most likely you have the "code" set differently between the radios. Also, if your model has a Qt filter, set it to off (zero).

each of you must be set to the same channel.
To choose a channel:

Channel Scan Feature
Your GMR325-2 radio has a channel Scan feature that allows you to easily Scan all 22 channels. When an active channel is detected, the unit will pause on that channel until the channel is clear. Then after a 2 second delay, the unit will continue scanning.
Pressing PTT button while the Scan is paused on a channel will allow you to transmit on that channel.

To transmit the call alert tone, press the call key.

and unwanted noise due to terrain conditions or if you have reached your range limit.

Automatic Power Save Feature

On the binatone walkie talkies (black and orange)
It's difficult to answer without knowing which model, I know the Marina 300 came in black and orange however a few others have also had that colour variant. To remove the keylock from the Marina 300 you PRESS AND HOLD THE MENU BUTTON UNTIL THE KEY ICON DISAPPEARS. Note: The PTT, Call and Power will remain functional when keylock is on.

Trying to get our Motorola
Most likely your CTCSS tone codes are not turned on on the Midland radios. The CTCSS codes are also known as "Privacy Codes" or similar.
They will be from 1 to 38. Your Midland manual will tell how to set the codes on the radios. The Motorolas usually show the selected tone code below the channel number.
Alternately, you may be able to turn off the tone code on the Motorola radio(s) by setting it to "0" or "off". Then you will not need codes turned on on any of your radios and they should all communicate fine.
