SOURCE: My magone BPR40 radio isn't sending when PTT

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.

None of the buttons will solve this issue.

A repeating low tone is heard when you press the PTT if your battery level is low. You may have a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive, so the first place this shows up is when pressing the PTT. A quick way to check this is to swap batteries with a known good radio and see if the problem switches to the other radio.

Battery tips: Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to remove the film caused by hand oil. Always charge your battery with the radio turned off. And be certain your charger is plugged into an outlet that is not connected to a light switch shutting off power. Batteries last approx. 2 years. Check your battery's date code to see its age. (3 or 4 digit number, first one-two numbers are the year, second two are the week of the year. example: 1132 would be 2011 the 32nd week)

If the above does not solve your problem, you should see your local Motorola dealer, or a nationwide repair center for more assistance. Current flat rate repair on this style unit is typically around $69.

FYI: Your buttons are likely top button = monitor/sticky monitor and the bottom button could be hi/low power, scan or one of several other features. Each button has a short and a long press option.

Best regards.

BPR40 Receiving a static reception when someone is talking


Several things need to be checked. Fully charged battery. Antenna, make certain it s tight and unbroken. Wiggle the antenna while receiving, if reception improves, it is the antenna or the antenna jack. Then wiggle the on/off vol switch, same thing, if reception improves, it is broken or needs to be resoldered. Then I check the speaker. Speakers gather metal particles, as they get more and more, the speaker distorts and it sounds like static. Use a powerful magnet, run it over the speaker grill and see if anything comes out. I put plastic wrap on the magnet for easy cleaning. It could still be a bad speaker. Last, I check programming. All of this is done at our shop regularly and I suspect most radio shops follow the same procedures, maybe in a different order. Post if this helps or not.

Magone bpr40 - How do you remove the Board from Metal back plate. All Screws are now off of board, But still not coming apart.


Great question! Clear and easy to understand! The volume and channel switches likely have a metal "O" ring that screws down on the threaded switch and holds the top of the radio to the housing. Remove the knobs, then use a really small flathead screwdriver, insert it into a notch in the "O" ring and unscrew. Be careful and you should be fine. If not, get it to a radio repair shop.

We have 6 Mag one BPR40 radio's all of a sudden you can't hear anything in the ear pieces.


Very strange! Assuming no programming has changed: check that all earpieces are tight into the radio. Unplug, check for audio without an earpiece and replug into radio. Make certain your batteries are FRESH (less than 1 year old) and fully charged. I am assuming you are using earpieces approved for the Motorola radio. Many speakers do not work and several earpieces are not designed well. Stay away from the auction site cheap ones. You get what you pay for, including failures. For several audio jacks to fail at once would be very unusual. Try a new earpiece. I suspect earpiece failure more than anything. All tests after this require checking programming and/or taking the radio apart.

How do I connect Mag One BPR40 two way radio by Motorola to CP100 two way radio by Motorola? I already had about 8 CP100's and we just got 2 new Mag One's. Thanks.


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.

We currently have a fleet of 12 MagOne BPR40's. They need to be cleaned, but I'm not sure how to clean them, or even how to take them apart. Any suggestions??


At our repair shop we use a very mld cleaner that we get at a local "dollar" store. I think because it is so cheap it isn't strong enough to hurt anything. We spray them from afar with a light mist and then use a old toothbrush to scrub tough areas. Michael
