    Not True at all!

    Motorola CP150/CP200/CP200XLS/PR400
    If LED is blinking Yellow....

    This is a Smart Charger so there is factors

    If you talk on your radio allot and battery gets hot from talking on the radio and then you place the Radio/Battery on Charger then.....

    LED Indicator will blink Yellow because

    1. Battery is Hot and unsafe to Charge, The battery will blink Yellow and stop when battery cools down then it will go to solid Red Light.

    2. Battery is Completely dead, waiting to charge or building Blocks to start charging process.

    3. Battery is DE- Charging!
    Instead of fully charging, Its UN-Charging AKA
    Draining your battery on Purpose. Motorola Smart Chargers will Drain battery once so often to preserve Battery life.

    4: issue with connection or making contact, or Issue with Charger dock/Adapter... RARE or near impossible. If you are experiencing Blinking Yellow indicator then... 90 percent of time battery is Draining 100% then will Start Charging once fully drained. This is a Special Unexplained feature than Motorola Does to help you preserve you battery life.


    Don't listen to these guys... I work for Motorola!

    Blinking Red= Dead battery, No longer Chargeable

SOURCE: Radius CP200 is in monitor mode I think and i

Your programmable buttons can be programmed to a number of options. Typically the first button is programmed to monitor and sticky monitor. If this button has been held in a long press you can clear the setting by holding it in another long press to shut it off, or by simply shutting the radio off and turning it back on.

Your second programmable button could be set for an number of features, but like the above description, simply pressing it again or shutting off the radio will turn the feature off.

When you refer to Monitor Mode, we assume your are indicating the radio is operating open squelch, with no private line code. This is when you can hear ALL transmissions on your frequency. If this does not describe the problem you are having please repost another question.

SOURCE: problem charging

If you are referring to a flashing yellow light on the charging base, this is an error code. Either the 1) battery is bad, 2) not making good contact in the charger, or 3) very very low on charge. The solution for this set of problems is as follows: 1) have the company you purchased them from replace them, 2) clean your contacts with a pencil eraser, 3) leave the battery on the charger with the yellow light flashing for an hour or two. If the battery is just very low on a charge, it will come back to life and the light will change to be constant. If the battery is bad or shorted out, the light will continue to flash and you will need to get with the vendor you purchased the batteries from.

Other things which come to mind are compatibility issues such as you are using a different battery chemistry than you had before. NiCd batteries can charge on either of the two chargers available for the P110 (slow rate or fast rate). However, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries require a fast rate charger.

If you are referring to a yellow blinking light on the radio while it is in the charger. You need to shut your radio off. Radios should always be turned off when charging. If the radio is left on you will never have a full charge. Also, if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is turned on, while on a charger, you can cause damage to the radio.

FYI: There is no light to show "out of range" on the radio, unless you are possibly using a trunking or repeater system. A blinking light on your radio indicates the radio is turned on and/or there is traffic on your frequency. Your charger base light can be red, yellow or green. This indicates the charge cycle status. Flashing most always means some type of error.

Best regards

Why motorola radius cp200 flashes red while charging?


Typically when the charger flashes red you have one of the following conditions:
1) The battery is simply too low to charge. Leave it on the charger for a few hours to see if it resolves. If it is a new battery return the battery for a replacement.
2) Your battery is not making good connection. Clean the battery and charger contacts with a pencil eraser. Check your contacts in the charge itself to make certain one isn't damaged or broken.
3) Your battery has an internal short. Test the battery on another charger to see if you get the same result. If so, replace the battery. 4) If you have a charger problem, the best test is to try another battery in the charger. Reminder: be certain the insert is turned the correct direction for the battery you are using.
Best regards.

HEllo, I have a Motorola Radius CP200. When I


If the sound is continuous, like a long tone humming, it is possible you are on a channel which is not programmed. Try changing your channel knob to a different channel and see if the sound changes.

If the sound is not continous, and only happens upon pressing a button, we are not certain what you are experiencing without seeing the radio first hand.

If it were the battery you would get a low battery beep and then the radio would shut itself down. This can happen from a bad battery or a low battery. If this were the situation, you should check your charger and be certain the light comes on and stays on when the radio is placed on the charger. (Note: your radio should always be turned off when on the charger.) A quick test would be to swap the battery with a known good radio and see if you have the same problem. If so, you know it is not a battery or charging problem.

If none of these items help, send or bring the radio to a Motorola repair shop for a quick analysis.

Best regards.

Not any recalls on this product. However, here are a few tips which may help:
1) There are 4 types of CP200 batteries: Li-Ion, Li-Ion Slim, NiMH, and NiCD. Due to the differing thicknesses Motorola provides an insert which can be turned around to accommodate the battery (or batteries) you have with your radio. When you look at the charger you will see two plastic ears sticking up beyond the charge cup. When you squeeze these ears toward one another you can lift the insert up and out of the charger. Turn the insert around according to which battery thickness you have. Then snap the insert back into the charging base. Your battery should rest and depress the spring loaded charge contacts in the base.
2) The insert has rails which guide the battery into place. You can see on your battery sides there are grooves which match the shape of the rails. In the beginning when all parts are new you must be very purposeful to slide the battery into place, but as the battery and charger begin to have more use you will find it easier to slide.
3) The CP200 charger can accommodate a radio with a battery on it, or a battery alone. (Tip: Always be certain the radio is turned off while on the charger.)
4) The only issue we have every seen customers experience with the CP200 charger is from rough handling. An internal plastic piece which holds the charge contacts in place can be broken if users are very rough when putting the radio in the charger. This is rare, but is known to happen.
Hope this helps.
Best regards.

You did not mention if the yellow light was on the radio or the charger. If on the charger, the battery is bad or the charger has a problem. Troubleshoot with your battery and charger. Try charging the battery on a different charger, and if successful you likely have a bad charger. To troubleshoot the battery and radio, you can try the radio with a known good battery from a known good radio. Through this process of elimination you should be able to determine which item is bad, be it the radio, battery or charger.
Batteries have a 18-24 month life expectancy. Drop-in chargers can be prone to problems if debris gets in the cup or they are roughly handled causing cracks or breaks in the internal charge contact supports.
Clean your battery contacts on the battery and the charger with a pencil eraser to assure good connection.

ONE OF MY CP200 RADIOS HAS A STEADY SQUELCH SOUND ON ALL 4 CHANNELS, HOW CAN I FIX THIS?


One possible problem is a bad battery. Try swapping batteries with a known good unit and see if the problem is solved. If it is not the battery, then your radio is likely in need of repair.

Compatibility


If your CP200 has a model number beginning with AAH50R it can be programmed to match the RDU2080d. If your CP200 model number begins with AAH50K, then the answer is no.

The letter R in the model number indicates it is UHF, and on the RDU2080d, the letter U in the model name indicates it is UHF. Both of these radios are programmable, and could be reprogrammed to match one another, if both UHF.

My Motorola Radius CP200 has lost all channels that was set by dealer is there a way to reset back to factory settings?


It is seldom a CP200 loses frequencies/PL code settings. It is more likely the radio has a bad battery or another issue. The only way to reprogram the radio is by taking it back to a Motorola dealer, as they are all dealer programmable only. Sorry.

Best regards.
