It is possible you have a battery or charging problem. Transmitting takes more energy than any other function of the radio. Pressing the PTT can quickly reveal a bad or poorly charged battery pack. Check your charger, clean all battery contacts on the charger and radio with a pencil eraser and try charging again. Also, you can try changing a battery out of a known good unit and see if the problem moves with the battery.

Hi,

On a Motorola AXU Series (including the 4100):
1. To unlock, press the “D” button for about a second or until the circle is gone. The circle with the line thru is the keyboard lock indicator;
2. To change channel, you need to press either the arrow left or right in Normal Mode;
3. To change PL (assigned to a channel), don’t think this can be done by the user
4. To change Ch. 1 from 464.500 MHz (PL-67.0) to 463.525 (PL-136.5), don’t think this can also be done by the user.

Even the built-in Programming Mode Parameters do not have this option to change assigned frequencies and PLs. An external programming software using a PC may or may not allow this.

These radios came pre-loaded with its channels assigned with specific frequencies/PLs. As used in a Motorola AXU411, they are:

Channel Frequency PL
1 464.500 67.0
2 464.500 77.0
3 464.500 88.5
4 464.500 179.9
5 464.500 None
6 464.550 67.0
7 464.550 82.5
8 464.550 94.8
9 464.550 179.9
10 464.550 None

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. Use electronic contact cleaner (spray type) on the PTT switch;
2. Use an external speaker/microphone and/or handsfree VOX headset
3. Replace the PTT switch. 4 solder points. Might not be easy but doable.

The last would require that you remove the defective PTT switch and use that as per sample when looking for replacement. Some printers uses the same type of switch. Familiarity with electronic components/circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would also be required.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Not certain what order you are doing it, so I will type a brief explanation:

With the radio turned OFF, hold in the PTT and the MON, while turning the radio on. Continue to hold the PTT and MON until the radio stops making noise. You are then in programming mode and can use the menu button to walk through the stages of programming.

SOURCE: PTT Button cuts me off

Among the things which might be wrong with your radio, you could have an intermittent PTT button or a weak/bad battery. The PTT button has an internal button attached to the component board. Over time the button wears out from continued use, or it gets bent further way from the external portion of the button and simply doesn't make good contact. Also, a weak battery can give the same symptoms, as it takes more energy to transmit than to receive. Try a known good battery in the radio and see if the same problem persists. Either way, a visit to your local dealer could probably give you a free diagnosis.

Motorolla walkie talkie shuts off when PTT button is pressed... Driving me INSANE. Please help


This is usually a low battery issue. If you are using the rechargeable battery pack, does your Motorola unit accept regular batteries in place of the rechargeable battery? If you can put in 3 or 4 AA batteries (depending on the model), try that. If the radio stays on when you press the PTT button, then continue using the regular batteries or get a replacement rechargeable battery, if you can find one for the model. If the radio still turns off when you press the PTT button with fresh batteries, then replace the two-way radio.

I hope this helps. When the rechargeable batteries fail, they will still charge but they won't hold a full charge for as long a period.

I have a Vintage kinematix reverb with 5 wires red,yellow,white,brown and black how I hook it up what are the wire? it also has a delay tuning knob


usualy you have a transmit recieve switch
like this
.....common
RX <<-- >TX ptt

so three wires
the ptt button common in a cb with 4 pins is also ground
should be
black screen and i think brown
but you need to meter out the ptt common and RX TX
for rx audio switched radios then one pin is RX one pin is TX one pin is common or ground for the PTT and also ground for the screening copper braids and also ground for the transmit audio
so you have 5 wires
3 will be PTT 1 will be audio and one audio ground
usually white or yellow
so i think black and yellow or black and white
black being ground

just look up the schematic or service manual for your CB
and check out the 4 pin plug config
there is only two usual ones
cybernet or uniden so.. easy stuff
look for like cybernet cb 4 pin wireup in google or similar
remember just meter out using the beep test range on a cheep multimeter too see which three are the PTT
so the common of the ptt needs connected to the copper screening and also to the black wire all to the ground pin on the 4 pin plug
you can short from the ground pin on the cb side to its TX pin and the set will enter tx mode
same with rx audio enable {if uses most cb post 1984 dont use RX audio hard switching}
so just three pins to worry about

Typically this would indicate a battery problem. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit. If the radio still shuts off when the PTT is pressed you have a radio problem. If it works fine, then you know your battery, despite showing fully charged, is bad.

How can I reset service light on 2008 Volvo V50


OTE: If the service interval indicator flashes it may be caused by one of the service interval indicator parameters not being programmed. This can only be carried out using suitable diagnostic equipment. Always check for any stored trouble codes as this may affect the resetting of the service interval indicator.
Ensure all doors are closed. Turn ignition key to position I. Press and hold reset button [A] 104667 07, 116126 07 Immediately turn ignition key to position II (within 2 seconds). Keep button [A] depressed until service message has been reset. A yellow warning light [B] will illuminate when it is time to release button [A]. Release reset button [A] within 4 seconds. There will be an audible signal when reset is complete. If reset button is not released within 4 seconds, the service interval indicator will not be reset.

I DROPPED MY REMOTE AND THE BATTERYS CAME OUT AND NOW I CANT TURN THE CHANNEL SO I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO PROGRAM MY REMOTE


Hi.

Manual Programming:


1. Turn on the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Locate a 3-digit code for your device.

3. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) for approximately three seconds unitl the POWER INDICATOR illuminates.

4. Enter the 3-digit code for your device within 30 seconds. The POWER INDICATOR shuts off.

5. Press power button to verify correct code entry. If the device shuts off, the code was entered correctly. If the device does not shut off, repeat steps 3-4, using a different code.





Automatic Programming

With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until the POWER INDICATOR illuminates. The remote control is in programming mode.

3.Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on
indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

3. Press CHANNEL UP or CHANNEL DOWN repeatedly until the device turns on.

4. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

5. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.


Thanx

When I turn on the radio the indicator light on the top of the unit just flashes. I cannot set the frequency or code. When I push the monitor button I hear static but otherwise the radio is dead.


The flashing light can be an indication there is activity on the frequency the radio is set to. Pressing the monitor button should give you the white noise (static) sound, so this function is working correctly. This also tells us your speaker is working fine, as well as your volume. The typical reason you cannot go into programming mode (when you hold the PTT in while turning on the radio and hear the female voice announce your frequency) is a bad or moved internal PTT switch. This typically happens over time as a user presses ever harder on the PTT to communicate. However, this does not explain why you are not receiving. This could simply be a result of an incorrect PL code in conjunction with the bad PTT. If you have a frame removal tool, you can extract the component board and physically look at the internal PTT. You can then hold in the very small button and program the radio to the frequency/PL you desire. If you are needing the radio repaired, you can get this style unit repaired for around $69 flat rate

YELLOW SMILEY AT TOP OF SCREEN ...WHAT IS THAT INDICATING ? THANKS


That is indicating that you have turned on the PTT (Push To Talk) feature on the phone. The PTT feature is like you would see on a Nextel phone, operating like a walkie talkie. There is a button on the side of the phone that will have a PTT logo embossed on it. Push that button to activate the PTT feature.

They used to talk to one another but now they don't


Here's your help:

Read out one of your radios by holding in the PTT while turning on the radio. It will announce the Frequency. Then press the Monitor Button and it will announce the code. Press the monitor button again, to leave the code set, and then shut off the radio.

On the second radio: Hold in the PTT button while turning on the radio. It will announce the frequency. Use the PTT to get to the number you need to match the first radio. To lock in the setting press the smaller button, known as the Monitor Button.

This will make the radio announce the private line code number. Using the PTT set this to the code number of your first radio, then press the Monitor Button to lock in your code.

Shut the radio off and turn it on again to begin use.
