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,

Your PL or DPL is not set correctly.
Check your owners manual, you can set this with the user buttons on the radio.
Press and hold the PTT button while turning the radio on. this will put the radio in the programing mode.
Be careful, if you do not know how to set the PL DPL or frequency you could make the problem worse.

The black U-shaped part will slide down and off the radio. It is one piece including the sides, bottom and part of the back of the radio.

Hold in the PTT and the monitor button while turning on the radio (wait for the sounds to stop) will put you into programming mode. You can then use the menu button and the +/- buttons to walk you through the settings. Using this menu, you can program your radio to match your other unit.
To read out your master radio, put it in programming mode, and simply press the menu button to walk through the settings. Do not press the +/- along the way, as it would change a setting. Once your have your master radio read-out, you can proceed with programming the one you are having a problem with.

Sounds like you have check the settings. Which would be the first item to check: frequency, code and Qt filter (if any). You might try setting all of these back to a basic setting with only your frequency programmed. Turn all the others to off (or zero), including any other special features such as VOX or call tones. If your radios do not work in this basic simple mode, you may have a deeper problem.
Also, check your batteries. If you are using rechargeable batteries, they may need replaced. They have an 18 month life expectancy. It takes more energy to Transmit than to Receive, so when a battery is going bad, the first thing to leave is Transmit. You can try swapping the batteries to see if the problem changes. But if both are the same age, they both could need replaced.
