Don't know your capabilities but if it were me I would open the phone and check the contacts for transmit button. Sometimes contacts get corroded and need cleaning or it just may be no connection at all and a adjustment of the contacts will resolve the issue.

You will find the manual here. The radio is part of the 280 series radios, so there is a general manual on all in that series.

This one should be a very close match. The T4508 is a foreign version of the T4500.

To answer your questions: the airport xray should not have harmed them, and there is no reset button.

If you are using the radios with the rechargeable battery pack, it most likely needs replaced. They have a life expectancy of 12-18 months. Here is a link to the Motorola store: http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola;jsessionid=B7997F21F6A409F029D6DEC2CB194ADB.mot2?cmd=catDisplayStyle&entryPoint=adirect&catKey=601560&messageType=catDisplayStyle Clean your battery contacts both in the radio and on the battery with a pencil eraser.

There is also a chance the radios are not programmed correctly. Be certain the frequency, interference code eliminator and the Qt filter (if any) are set identical to one another. You indicate you have a manual, I will insert a link here for those who do not, who might read this: http://www.giantintl.com/RadioPDFs/Outdated%20Manuals/T56XX_57XX_User_Manual_E.pdf

Lastly, you may simply have one radio which has failed. It is not likely both would fail at the same time, short of battery issues. The three items listed above are suspect: batteries, programming or one has failed.

Best regards.

I have a set of Motorola T5720 walkie Talkies. I cannot determine if one of them is not receiving or the other is not transmitting.


One radio works properly, the other can receive. I assume there are more than two by the question. Check and then rotate you batteries, mark on the working unit battery that it is GOOD. Transmit takes a great deal more power than receiving. Batteries, even un-used only last 18-24 months typically. If no joy, then check your programming but I think that is unlikely. It really sounds like a power/battery issue.

Motorola XTR 446 talkie walkie is not receiving


Try programming the radios without an eliminator code and see if they work together then. If so, there is something wrong with the eliminator code portion of the radio. Also, check your batteries, switch batteries between the units and see if the problem moves to the other unit. It takes more energy to transmit than receive, so a bad or very weak battery could exhibit a similar problem. The radio icon will illuminate whenever a radio is transmitting or receiving. When the radio is in standby mode, the icon should not be shown. Your radio with the icon on all the time may be stuck in transmit. Check your PTT button to see if it is slightly stuck or depressed. Here's a link to the user guide http://www.motorola.com/web/Business/Products/Two-Way%20Radios%20-%20Unlicensed/_Documents/XTR446/Static%20Files/XTR%20Manual%20EU.pdf?localeId=103

Generally when a radio shuts off when you press the PTT button it is a sign of a bad or poorly charged battery. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive. The fact you have a charge which the light does not come on indicates you have a bad charger or bad connection between the radio and/or battery and the charger. Clean your battery contacts (on both radio and charger) with a pencil eraser and see if it clears up the problem. If not, you have either a battery or charger problem.

Best regards.

One of my T4500 radios does the same thing. When I transmit or the radio is receiving, the interval is interrupted and it takes another 12 seconds to make a popping noise. Weird! I tried to post this as a comment but FixYa kicks out an error so apologies for posting it as a solution!

You may have a bad antenna. What happens is a lot of guys carry their radios around by the antenna, inside the connection to the antenna is weak and can crack at the solder joint, thus opening up the antenna circuit and prevent you from transmitting any power out. Our Motorola hand helds have this problem, they are weak at the antenna connector and guys swing them around by the antenna end up breaking them.
Your next problem is that if the radios have been used often enough with a faulty antenna circuit, your final amplifiers are probably toast from transmitting into an open antenna circuit, causing all the power to be reflected back into the radio and burning out the final amplifiers

Walkie talkies will talk but not recieve


My experience has been that you are probably on the wrong subchannel on the one that cannot receive.

T5900 Walkie Talkie Issue


Hello Bo Duke,

If one radio won't walk to the other my guess if that you have the Privacy Code function set up incorrectly.

The privacy code function mutes the radio unless it receives a signal from another radio transmitting the same privacy code. If Privacy Codes are turned on for Radio A but not turned on for Radio B then you will be able to transmit from Radio A to Radio B but not from Radio B to Radio A. If Privacy Codes are turned on for both radios but each unit is set to a different code then neither radio will be able to talk to the other.

Make sure that the radios are both set to the same privacy code or that the privacy code function is turned off on both radios. You can find more information on how this function is set in the radio's Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps!
Ken
