Could be a sign of a bad battery. Static is a good indicator of a rechargeable battery nearing end of life.

SOURCE: Will a Motorola TalkAbout T5320 transmit to a Motorola TalkAbout T5530?

Hello Blindmaster,

Check the Continuous Tone Coded Squelch (CTCSS) settings on all the radios. (Note that some manufacturers refer to this feature as a “Privacy Code” or “Quiet Code.” The actual name of the feature may vary.) This feature encodes a low-frequency signal on your radio transmission. This signal is below the range of human hearing but can be detected by other radios. When the CTCSS feature is active your radio will ignore any signal that it receives that does not have the proper tone encoded on it.

In order for these radios to communicate, all of the radios need to be on the same channel and have the same CTCSS code programmed or the CTCSS feature must be disabled.

I suspect that CTCSS is activated on your T5530s but is not enabled on your T5320. This would result in the situation you describe.

Also take note that when using different brands / models of radios to communicate with one another that the CTCSS code numbering scheme may not necessarily be the same from radio to radio. For instance, CTCSS code “4” on the Motorola TalkAbout series actually corresponds to code “A” on the Motorola Sport models.

Best Regards,

Agent Ken

How do I unlock a Motorola talkabout


Press and hold the Menu button (the center section with the + and - buttons to the sides) until you hear a beep (3 seconds or so). After that, when you press and release the Menu button, the Channel number should flash indicating that you can change the channel. In the future, you can toggle the keypad lock by pressing and holding the Menu button.

You can find more information on the Keypad Lock feature in the manual. See page 14 and page 21. The manual is available from ManualsLib: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/106993/Motorola-Talkabout-T5320.html . For the diagram of the Motorola Talkabout T5320, see https://www.manualslib.com/manual/106993/Motorola-Talkabout-T5320.html?page=14#manual . The Keypad Lock is described here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/106993/Motorola-Talkabout-T5320.html?page=21#manual .

I hope this helps. I usually use my Motorola Talkabout radios with the keypad lock active. I hit the various button accidentally when working in the field.

One of my radios keeps emitting a constant static, whil the other work perfectly. Help?


Contant static can be a sign of a bad battery. Try trading the battery pack between the units to see if the problem moves to the other radio. If so, you need to replace your battery pack. Any other problem related to static would not be able to be resolved, as the T4500 is non-repairable.

Best regards.

Excessive static


Constant static is a sign of either a bad/low battery or a defective radio. Sorry. You might try switching the batteries from a known good radio to this one to see if the problem is solved. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to assure good connection. If changing the battery does not solve the problem, the radio is defective and will need retired.

Best regards.

Cant reset my motorola talkabout t5000


Constant static can be a sign of a bad or low battery. If the battery is known to be good, try the radios outside the factory setting to see if the problem persists. If you have no problem when you are away from the machinery, you may need to set your interference eliminator code to a number other than zero. This will turn your eliminator ON, which will block out the radio frequency interference caused by the machines.

If the problem persists outside of the factory, then you should try replacing the batteries. OR possibly just cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser.

The method you are using for resetting the radio will take the radio back to the factory default settings. It will not solve the problems listed above. It will only reset the frequency and code back to the original settings.

How do I change the channel on my T5320 2way radio?


With the radio on press the MENU button. The current channel will begin to flash. Use the + or - button to change the channel while it is flashing. Press the PTT button to lock in your selection.

I get static after someone else talks


One of the main causes of static can be a bad battery. If you are using rechargeable batteries you need to replace them every 14-18 months. If you are using alkaline batteries, they have been known not to fully power the radio once your cross the 10 hour mark. Your radio would then be operating in somewhat of a brown out. This would lead to static.

Another cause of static is simply being nearly out of range of the other radio(s).

The burst of white noise at the end of Rx on some radios can be rather annoying. On the basic talkabout radios there is nothing which can be done to solve the problem, other than replacing the radio.
