Mag One BPR40 not powering

My Mag One BPR40 radio does not turn on, the charge light on the charger lights up, but after 90mins+ the unit does not power on. I have switched batteries from the other units to see if it was a battery problem, but it turns out to be the unit. Help.

SOURCE: Red light flashing

It is either defective, or it has something touching one of the contacts causing a short. It would be best to replace the charger. Typically they are somewhat like a light bulb, they will burn out over time and need replaced.

SOURCE: Just got a Mag One BPR battery delivered to me and

The charger which comes with the BPR40 is a rapid charger. (The book doesn't indicate if it is a 90 min. or 3 hour charger.) None-the-less, your battery is fine. When your charger is displaying green it will continue to trickle (slow) charge the battery to keep it topped off, so to speak. The first 3 charge cycles you should leave the battery on the charger the full recommended time. On most Motorola radios it is 10-12 hours. This will assure your battery is charged to full capacity and initiated properly. In most cases, your traditional charging of the radio should be overnight. When you go to bed, put the radio to bed on the charger.

FYI: All batteries come from the factory with some charge in them. It is a small test charge to assure the battery's funcationality.

If for some reason after the first week or so, you think your battery or charger is not functioning properly, contact the dealer where you purchased the unit. They can replace it under warranty.

Best regards.

SOURCE: Will the light turn green on the ht1000 charger

It depends on the type of charger, a rapid-charger would charge a battery in one hour or less and the green light would come on when battery fully charged. A slow charger will take up to 16 hours to charge a battery and has red light only.

SOURCE: Unit won't turn on. Battery indifferent.

I bought these phones at a yard sale for $2.00, One phone powered up, the other did not. Of course the first thing you think is battery; right? Interestingly swapping the battery with the working ohone made no difference, the unit still would not turn on. After a close inspection, I noticed variation in the way and the shape in which the battery contactors were bent to make contact. I used a snall knife point and re-shaped the contacts into more of a vee shape, just like the ones on the working unit, I replaced the battery and the unit still did not turn on. I tried swapping batteries again and whala; the unit powered up and worked perfectly,

Motorla two way radio not charging


Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and be certain the radio is turned off while setting on the charger. If this does not solve the problem, try a different battery in the charger to see if the charger is working properly. If the problem is not the charger, then replace your battery.

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.

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.

Not charging


Here are some troubleshooting ideas:
1) Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser, both on the radio and the charger (gently).
2) Have your radio turned off when placed on the charger.
3) Does the light on the charger come on when you place the battery on the charger?
4) Try another battery on the same charger and see if it will charge a different battery.
5) Try the known good battery on this radio and see if the radio functions correctly with a known good battery.
6) Try a different charger with the questionable battery and see if you can get it to charge.
7) Be certain the insert in the BPR40 charger is turned the correct direction for the type of battery you have. When inserted correctly the rails should guide the radio into place, placing the external charge contacts on the radio against the charge contacts of the charger.
8) Check the date code on your battery, if more than 2 years old, replace it.

Best regards.

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.

Re: MagOne by Motorola, BPR40 -- What button should I push and how many times to make a radio stop beeping repeatedly before I can communicate? Thanks!


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.
