Motorola Radio Communications - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The CLS has preprogrammed frequencies. The Bao can be user programmed. If both are Uhf, the Bao must match the CLS unless one of the CLS frequencies is already in use in the Bao. So, are you already using CLS and adding radios? You need the actual frequency and tone code. If you do not understand, contact a dealer like us, local is even better! Channel 1 is only an indicator, not a frequency.

You must have the RSS (radio service software) software and the correct cable. There is no resetting without these.

Check your battery connections and/or batteries. It sounds like the radio is trying to perform the “power on” sequence, but doesn’t have enough power to actually power on. Use fresh from the package or other “known good” batteries, and clean the battery contacts with rubbing alcohol and a clean paper towel. If there is corrosion or other oxidation on the contacts, you may need to use an emery board and then the alcohol wipe. Beyond that, the radio is not really “user serviceable”. Is there any chance the malfunctioning radio was exposed to water?

You must buy Motorola software from Motorola. Get a cable from them also. You also must have an FCC License to legally operate these radios. Your best best is to go through a dealer. The FCC License is quite hard to do without a dealer guiding you. It is easy to be ripped off and you must go through a coordinator. If not USA, still go through a dealer. The software and cable issue does not go away, ever.

That is a current model, what is the warranty? Is the unit properly flashed?

Motorola Radio... | Answered on Jan 31, 2019

A few things come to mind: 1) Be certain your radio is turned off when plugging in an audio device. This insures they are pairing properly. 2) Be certain the audio device is plugged in all the way to the click position. You should feel a slight click when it is seated properly. 3) If the jack on this radio is slightly wobbled out from audio devices being plugged and unplugged the headset's plug may not be touching the sweet spot to make transmitting possible. Press slightly to the side on the plug's grommet to see if it works. If this is the case, trade headsets with another unit and see if you still have the same problem. Sometimes it is as simple as playing musical chairs with audio devices. 4) If you are using the radio in digital mode, not all audio devices will work. Check with your Motorola dealer to see which audio accessories will work with your unit in digital mode. (They will have a digital emblem stamped on them.)
