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.

Well there are a few possiblilities:
1 - If the headset is not an OEM part then the wiring or jack may not match or the impedances may be mismatched.
2 - When you say doesn't work you need to be more specific.
VOX capable y/n, VOX Working y/n, PTT on head set y/n, etc.
3 - Has the radio phone/mic jacks ever been modified?

Good Luck with the testing

Monitor function and PTT are often either side by side or on the same key. (Upper or lower portion of key). You may be hitting both or the wrong side of the button. Cheers.

That radio is easily programmable for other, or additional frequencies in the same band. I believe (I've been out of the business for a while) you need a special computer interface and software in order to affect a change. I'd contact a Motorola shop. You will also need to be licenced for the new frequency. I hope this helps.

First check your battery pack. A bad or low battery will produce static. Secondly, check your antenna. If it seems to turnaround inside when you hold on to the threads and the outer sheath, you need a new antenna. Beyond this your radio is likely in need of repair.
Best regards.

First you check the volume, turn the volume, then you check your speaker. If both are ok then you check QT and DQT. These character must be same.

A few thoughts:
If it is a long continuous beep this can be an indication of having the channel select set to a channel which is not programmed.

If it is a beep that only occurs when you press the PTT button, similar to the low battery beep, it could be a battery, battery contact, or internal battery contact issue. Clean battery contacts between radio and battery, as well as external contacts, with a pencil eraser to assure a good connection.

If it is a beep that occurs periodically when pressing the PTT button, it is possible your radio is programmed with busy-channel-lock-out (talk prohibit tone), which would not allow you to transmit on a frequency which is already in use.

Best regards.

This can be a trick. You can slide a small screw driver between the battery and the clip to release the clip. Sometimes you need a third hand. Tapping the bottom of the belt clip on the edge of a counter while slipping the screwdriver in the sweet spot will sometimes help.

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.

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.

these usually use a diode for reverse polarity protection and no fuses. You will need a full schematic and probably a service manual.

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.

This is no fun, we agree. You will need to slip a thin standard screw driver tip between the radio housing and the small metal keeper at the top of the belt clip where it attaches to the radio. Then gently pry the metal keeper toward the belt clip. The belt clip assembly complete with clip will slide upward and off the radio. Sometimes you will need to bump the bottom of the belt clip on the edge of a table or counter top while using the screwdriver method described to get the clip to slide.

Best regards.

The BPR40 is a dealer programmable radio. The frequencies would need to be read out using Motorola proprietary software. The only thing you can tell from looking at the radio is whether it is VHF or UHF. Model number AAH84K... is VHF and AAH84R... is UHF.
Best regards.

Check your PL/DPL settings among the radios. You may not have them programmed the same as one another. PL (aka private line) blocks out other users who do not have the same code as one another. Your radio which receives could be set with no PL code and it receives and hears every thing, so it would hear the other two, but not talk to them if they have a PL code setting.

Another way to check this is typically the dealer who programmed them will have the side button directly under the PTT programmed for Monitor. If you press this button a short press you should temporarily go into "open squelch" and you would be able to hear everything on your frequency. Try pressing this button on one of your "two" radios and see if they can hear the "one" radio. If so, you know it is a programming issue. (provided the button is programmed to Monitor). If pressing the Monitor button does not allow temporary communication, you have another issue.

If the green light on the radio seems to come on and stay on continuously, the radio is in need of repair. (Average flat rate repair on tehese BPR40s are around $79 currently at many repair centers.)

Best regards.
