Green light coming on and staying on... Sadly nothing the end-user can do to alleviate this problem themselves. It is usually repairable by a trained/equipped repair facility.

The Mag One BPR40 is dealer programmable. You have two choices:

1) Reprogram your CP100s to match the new BPR40s. For this you would need to know what the dealer programmed the BPR40s to... OR
2) Take your BPR40s back to the place of purchase and request they reprogram them to match your CP100s. This should be a free service since you just purchased the BPR40s. They will need to know some settings from the CP100s to make the match.

Best regards.

Mag one wont get reception


First you check the volume, turn the volume, then you check your speaker. If both are ok then you check QT and DQT. These character must be same.

Green light stays on bpr40


If this is after programming your radio needs repaired. We see this when some BPR40s are reprogrammed. Take the radio to your local service center or send to a qualified repair center.

Mt mag one bpr40 uhf 450/470 will receive but will not transmit. green light is on all the time


It probably has "busy channel inhibit" turned on in the menus, and the squelch is open, thus making it think there is a signal on the channel you're trying to use.

My BPR40 transmits to one radio but can't respond ?


Check your PL/DPL settings among the radios. You may not have them programmed the same as one another. PL (aka private line) blocks out other users who do not have the same code as one another. Your radio which receives could be set with no PL code and it receives and hears every thing, so it would hear the other two, but not talk to them if they have a PL code setting.

Another way to check this is typically the dealer who programmed them will have the side button directly under the PTT programmed for Monitor. If you press this button a short press you should temporarily go into "open squelch" and you would be able to hear everything on your frequency. Try pressing this button on one of your "two" radios and see if they can hear the "one" radio. If so, you know it is a programming issue. (provided the button is programmed to Monitor). If pressing the Monitor button does not allow temporary communication, you have another issue.

If the green light on the radio seems to come on and stay on continuously, the radio is in need of repair. (Average flat rate repair on tehese BPR40s are around $79 currently at many repair centers.)

Best regards.

The green light that indicates that some one it talking and goes red when you key always slays on


This is an indication of a receiver problem. Two things cause this. The receiver needs to be realigned or you have bad ceramic filters that need to be replaced.

My magone BPR40 radio isn't sending when PTT is pushed. It is receiving fine. Any suggestions?


A couple of thoughts:
1) Check the mic hole and see if it is covered or clogged with debris.
2) Does your PTT button seem hard or the opposite, mushy? You could have an internal PTT issue. The PTT is a common failure part on 2-way radios. Feel around for the 'sweet' spot and see if you can make a simple or partial transmission, or if it will even momentarily open up the receiver on the other unit. If so, your radio is in need of repair. It would likely need a new internal PTT. (At most repair centers where the BPR40 is repaired the flat rate repair currently are around $69 for the BPR40)
3) Has any reprogramming been recently done on the radio? If so, double check the programming to be sure your PL/DPL code is set the same as your other radio.\
4) Check your battery. Trade batteries with the other unit and see if the problem changes. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive.

Best regards.

I have a set of 5 radios. One of the radios has the green light on all the time and is not hearing all transmissions.


The constant green light generally means the radio is in receive mode, or is receiving a transmission. You might check your antenna to be certain it is properly attached, is free from defect, and is seated properly in the antenna port. Also, just for test purposes, try your radio at different volume settings, as the on/off volume potentiometer might have a shorted or dead spot.

If none of the above solve the problem, your radio is likely in need of repair. (Typically around $69 flat rate) If your radio is still under warranty (1 year) return it to the dealer where you purchased it for warranty.

Best regards.
