Motorola TLKR T3 one way not working but Monitor works...

I have a couple of T3 radios. suddenly one Radio doesn't receive (or the other doesn' transmit). If I switch the 'monitor mode' on I can hear the voice! In normal mode I cannot get the 'call tone' or any signal at all. The opposite way works perfect. Can you suggest?

    I turned off this device a year ago.
    A year later I put in new batteries ... they turn on, but don't communicate. Could the problem possibly be the same? Thanks in advance

Check your Private Line (aka interference eliminator code, tone code, PL, quiet call). It sounds like you have one radio set with a PL setting and the other one is open squelch (no private line). All settings for frequency and PL code need to be the same between the two radios.

We don't have a manual for the T3, but I am attaching one for the T5, which may be similar. http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/TLKR-T%20series/Static%20Files/T5%20Manual%20EU.pdf

Best regards.

    There is a Filter inside this Device that fail to work. The serial of this filter is: WM50T. Here is link with the datasheet:http://www.qsl.net/icom/download/p05e9.p... You will need some authorized personnel for changing this Filter! I have 2 Motorola's T3 and had the same problem, no reception! and i change this filters in both of the T3's and now are working again.

    In time this filters will fail to work again, and this because of the defectuous design implemented by Uniden and sold to Motorola. Design does not protect the filter from DC voltage and electromigration appears inside the filter.

Your PL or DPL is not set correctly.

Check your owners manual, you can set this with the user buttons on the radio.
Press and hold the PTT button while turning the radio on. this will put the radio in the programing mode.
Be careful, if you do not know how to set the PL DPL or frequency you could make the problem worse.

You have your interference code eliminator set differently on the two radios. Here is a link to the T5 user guide (sorry I didn't have a link to the T3, but they should be very similar): http://www.gouldelectronics.co.uk/product-downloads/T5-20Manual-20EU.PDF

Check your programming. The frequency and code must be identical on the two radios. Here is a link to the user guide http://www.gouldelectronics.co.uk/product-downloads/T5-20Manual-20EU.PDF

The description you give is indiciative of the code being set differently between the two radios. For basic operation set the code to off (zero).

Best regards.

One of my tlkr-t3 walkie talkie's will not recieve.


One of my tlkr-t3 walkie talkie's will not recieve.

They worked fine the first time we tried them out. Then they were put away for several weeks, and when they've been switched on, one now doesn't send. I checked this by the other putting in scan mode but it doesn't stop scanning at the channel it is assumed to send with. I tried all the channels for sending but neither one is detected. The other way around, so the first one in scanning mode, the 2nd in send mode, works fine (the scanning stops at the channel of the sending one, as expected).
So my conclusion is, that one doesn't send.
I interchanged the (fresh) batteries, but this doesn;t change.
So what could be the problem?

The "MONITOR" is probably stuck on. You can go to
http://www.mods.dk/manual.php?brand=motorola and login (its free) and download the manual and look for how to turn off the "MONITOR" function.

I have a TLKR-T3 and a T5720 radios. can they communicate? Thanks


No, they have no frequencies in common. The TLKR-T3 uses the PMR446 frequencies common in Europe. The T5720 uses FRS freqeuncies common in the USA.
