MH230TPR - one radio not working

Bought the 3 pack and one of the radios does not work. You can talk through it and others can hear you, but you can't hear others through the radio. How do I fix this?

Take the radios back to a very basic setting with all special features turned off. If the radios have a Qt filter check to see it is turned off, and set your Code to zero (off) on both units. Also, check to see your battery is good in both units. Trade the battery with a known good radio to see if the problem moves to the other radio, is a simple test.

SOURCE: How do I get my motorola T5725 radios to talk to eack other

Hell ssalah,

Most of the time when one radio cannot talk to the other radio it means that the Privacy Codes are not configured properly. In order for the two radios to talk to one another they both have to be set to the same channel and Privacy Code or the Privacy Code function needs to be turned off on both radios.

The Privacy Codes can be used to keep the radios silent unless they receive a signal from another radio using the same code. This enables the radios to be used on busy channels with a minimum of interference. If Privacy Codes are turned off on one radio and turned on for the other radio, the situation you describe will occur.

Consult the user's manual for information on the Privacy Code function and either disable the function on both radios or set both radios to the same code.
Best Regards,
Ken

SOURCE: motorola t5100 cant hear the other person talking into the radio

Check to see you have the radios set to the same frequency and interference eliminator code as one another. This would be the most likely cause.

You need to set your interference eliminator code to zero, and your Qt filter to zero also. Here is a link to the owners manual: http://direct.motorola.com/ENS/T6500%20Series%20User%20Manual.pdf

What is happening is your T6500 is set to ignore radios which do not match the same code. The fact your Cobras can hear the T6500 indicates they are set with their interference eliminator turned off (aka no code).

A similar occurance will happen if the Qt filter is set to anything but zero. The Qt filter is unique to Motorola. These features are beneficial when you are in a high radio traffic area and you want to block out hearing other people. But in your situation, you are mixing radios, and the easiest way to make them match is to turn off the special features (aka set them to zero).

Here is a copy of the user manual: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/SX900%2002-22-08.pdf Double check the programming of your frequency and interference eliminator code.

Then you might check your Qt filter and your call tones. Set both to the zero (off) position and see if you have the same issue.

SOURCE: I cant talk to the other radio. the channels are both the same.

Here is a link to the EM1000 series user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/EM1000%20User%20Guide%2001-11-08.pdf

Check your frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) settings. For basic operations set the code and Qt filters to zero (off). Turn off any special features, and try the radios in just a basic mode.

Best regards.

I just bought it and tested on a channel and eliminator code and it worked fine. But after a while I cannot hear static when holding "mon" and cannot hear the other radio if I talk into one. This happens...


If the radios are working fine otherwise, don't worry about the monitor feature not creating white noise (static). If you are still having a problem with the radios, try setting the interference eliminator code to off (zero). And turn off any other special features to see if you can regain communications. Then slowly add the features back in as you need them. All radios must be identical in freq., code, and features.

Best regards.

We have these vertex 2 way radios in 55 school busses and they do not work well at all. Static and can't even talk to the other busses very well


You need to work with the dealer who provided the radios. It's possible you're too far apart, or the radios weren't properly programmed. In any case, this is a "commercial" radio application and requires properly authorized personnel to maintain or correct the problem.

I have a pair of motorola t5500 one of them will not talk to the other . one works fine and you can talk into it and hear from the other but the 2nd one when I press the button and talk you hear nothing...


Change your CODE to be zero on the 2nd unit. Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage/manuals/Moto/T55xx.pdf

If this doesn't solve the problem, check the frequency, code and Qt filter to be certain they are all set the same. Lastly, switch the battery packs between the units and see if the problem moves to the other unit. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive.

I can hear people talking, but they can't hear me, or they say I sound like an alien


Check to see if the meter needle is swinging backwards when you key up. If it does your final may be bad. If the needle goes forward and others say they see your keying up but no sound your audio chip may be bad; especially if you have tried so many mics and antennas. If your radio has a swr warning light and it comes on this could extremely limit your range and others may not hear you and contiued use will damage your radio. Good luck!!!

One radio doesn't respond at all


Hi,
That radio has two features that may be the problem. The first is battery save mode. The second is a "CTCSS" quieting system (which this model has). which keeps the radio from hissing when another radio isn't sending you a signal. We all know that sound. Old T.V.s made the sound when you were tuned to a channel when the transmitter was off the air.
Test procedure:
1.) Answers if the power supply parts of the radio working

Turn on the "good radio" volume midway. Push transmit button button on bad radio and speak. Do you hear yourself speak in good radio?

Email me the answer and I'll provide step 2

Short list: Have you
