Exactly correct, the push to talk drains a battery more than receiving. Your battery is most likely bad. Lithium batteries do not last as long (in years) as the older Ni Cads or Nickel Metals. Batteries are relatively cheap compared to replacing the radio. We only sell Motorola brand batteries for this model after some poorly made after market batteries performed poorly. You get what you pay for. Also, holding the radio in the charger and transmitting is not advised, so don't do it! The charger does not have enough power to run the radio on transmit and it could damage the radio.

The battery is bad or not charged. Check your charger and charger/battery connection. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser and try charging again. With a new battery it may take up to 3 charge cycles to fully charge your battery.

Best regards.

SOURCE: Push to talk problem

Hi,

If indeed radio #1 has a mic problem, this may be confirmed by trying an external speaker/microphone plugged into the accessory jack. If still a no, then its not the mic but possibly the modulator circuitry. If there is transmit audio with the external mic and hence internal mic is defective, the unit would have to be pried open and the defective component replaced. The internal mic is normally an electrofet 2-3 terminal soldered to a shielded wire and physically attached to the front plate.

Alternately, another possibility is that radio #2 has its Interference Eliminator Code enabled/activated. This is indicated by the presence of small sized digits on the top right of display. If this is the case and no similar digits are displayed in radio #1, then radio #2 will not allow any received transmission to be heard. Along the same line of reasoning, if the code is activated on both radios signified by the presence of the 2 small digits, and radio #1 has a problem with its CTCSS (code) generator, then it would also prevent reception of radio #2. A way to verify this is by deactivating/disabling the Interference Eliminator Codes on both radios.

On certain occasion, it is also possible that radio #2 has a defective speaker. You should be able to verify this by plugging in an external speaker to the accessory jack of radio #2.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

A beep when pressing the PTT button could be a low or bad battery indicator. It takes more energy to transmit than to rest idly or receive. Try a known good battery in the radio and see if it corrects the problem.

If the battery is not the issue, then you may have a programming problem. Typically radios with a blank or unprogrammed channel will beep when placed on that channel. Try programming the radio to a different channel and see if the beep still occurs. If the beep occurs on many program settings you may have a deeper issue.

Best regards.

Cannot transmit, getting a constant tone while holding talk button and transmit light not coming on, any help?


Check the headset jack. There may be something inside causing a short. also, the CLS has an audio tone out button. Be certain you are not pressing it as you push the PTT button. The PTT is odd on this radio, it is the top BIG rubber button on top FRONT. Many customers get this confused with the tone transmit button.

This is the sign of a low or dead battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. So pressing the PTT to transmit will generally shut the radio off when you have a low, bad or poorly charged battery.

Clean the battery contacts on the battery, radio and charger with a pencil eraser and try charging once again. Be certain your radio is turned off during charging. Sometimes it will take 2-3 attempts to charge battery which has gotten too low. Exposure to cold conditions in shipping can sometime cause this too.

If these solutions do not solve the problem, try charging the battery in another radio to see if the charge capability of this radio is compromised.

If none of these solutions solve your problem try getting the battery replaced under warranty at the point of purchase. It will have a 6 month or 1 year warranty.

If the battery was not new, replace it.

Best regards.

Beeping after finished talking..


This is commonly referred to as the Roger Beep. To turn it off or on, hold in the + (plus) button while turning on the radio.

How do i get another cls1100 on the same freq and code #?


Not certain if you are referring to purchasing another radio or programming an existing radio. So we will answer both:

1) If programming another CLS1110 to match your existing radio, First try it straight out of the box and fully charged. Many people use the default factory programming. If that does not work follow the simple instructions on page 26 in the user guide. Here is a link: http://www.banoggle.com/Products/Motorola/manuals/CLS-series-manual.pdf There are also cloning instructions on page 32.

2) If you are talking from the perspective of purchasing a new radio, all CLS1110 radios operate on the same frequencies/PL codes. (Unless you have a foreign model purchased in another country, then it is iffy) Simply purchase your new radio and follow the programming instructions above.

Best regards.

Will the motorola mr350r work with the motorola cs1110


  • The mr350 is a standard GMRS/FRS talk around radio and the cls1110 is a business band radio but bot operate in UHF. So if the cls1110 is programed to one of the frequencies I will list then the two will communicate. Otherwise they will not.
Here are the frequencies listed in order of channels on your radio. 1-22.

How do i put my new cls1110 on prog 1 frequency 4


The CLS1110 is a one channel radio. However the one channel can be changed to another frequency and/or PL code. With the radio turned OFF, hold in the PTT and the MON, while turning the radio on. Continue to hold the PTT and MON until the radio stops making noise. You are then in programming mode and can use the menu button to walk through the stages of programming. Use the PTT to change the settings, and the MENU to lock it in.

Best regards.

Frequency changing


Here is a link to the manual http://www.banoggle.com/Products/Motorola/manuals/CLS-series-manual.pdf

Entering Programming Mode
Press and hold Push to Talk and Monitor for 3 seconds while turning the radio on. The
radio beeps and displays PROG, the channel number flashes, and the frequency
(indicated by FREQ) and code (indicated by CODE) display alternately.
Use the MENU and the + or - keys to change the programming. More detailed instructions are on page 28 of the manual.
Best regards.

Is it possible to create a channel on a two way radio?


You have posted under the CLS1110 heading. If this is the radio you have here are the programming instructions: With the radio turned OFF, hold in the PTT and the MON, while turning the radio on. Continue to hold the PTT and MON until the radio stops making noise. You are then in programming2.gif mode and can use the menu button to walk through the stages of programming. Use the PTT to change the settings, and the MENU to lock it in.

The CLS1110 has 56 built-in frequencies to choose from. You cannot program in a "custom" frequency. Only choose from the list.
