Question about Motorola TLKR T5 Two Way Radio

1 Answer

Why isn't my Walkie talkie receiving any messages. How do I fix it?

My Walkie talkie currently isn't working. It will power on and everything but it can't receive any signal/messages. On the screen the receiving message icon is always displayed so that is why it can't get the messages I think. Also, when I scan on every channel it finds a signal on every single channel. Can someone please help? I have also cracked it open if I can do anything there, thanks.

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

Here is a link to the T5000-T5500 user manual. 'http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T50-T55_UserGuide.pdf'

From what you have stated, I can discern the radios will power up. You might try setting your interference eliminators to zero (off) to see if you are able to transmit at all.

You do not mention if you are using AA batteries or rechargeables. Either way a fresh set of charged batteries would be best for a test. It is clear you were getting power. However, it does take more energy to transmit than to receive. If your batteries are low or bad, pressing the PTT could us all the energy the radio has, and yet not transmit to the other units.

You might also check you VOX settings if any and be certain they are turned off.

It is not likely 4 radios would fail all at the same time. So it is probably a programming problem. Hope the user manual helps you find the solution.

This unit does not have a reset button. While troubleshooting you might check the batteries. Be certain they are in correctly and the contacts are free of corrosion. You can use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Walk through all the programming instructions in the manual, double checking both the frequency and interference eliminator codes. A quick setting back to zero on the code would alleviate any problem with that section of the radio.

As far as your "paging" this operates on the same frequency and code as the rest of the radio. If the radios are not working correctly in this relm, the paging will not work either.

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.

Walkie talkies talk to each other. Try transmitting (talk to each other) so they receive a signal first. Do it in the same room. The try for range. It is not much. Even for a GMRS radio, these are low power and short range. Under 2 miles, must be able to "see" each other.

Sounds like the 'squelch' is not high enough. Check the manual how to raise the squelch level. Then the receiver will be silenced until you receive a strong enough signal.

My Uniden walkie talkie keeps saying L very time I push a button


You've set the keylock feature on your walkie talkie. From the Uniden manual...

KEYLOCK

ON/OFF Press and hold the call/lock key until the "L" appears. After 1 second, the LCD will return to the channel display. To exit Keylock on mode, press and hold call/lock again. Note: While in keylock on mode, it will still receive transmissions.

They do not have signal to receive the walkie talkie service. Try texting them and telling them to get in an area where they can get better service. Walkie Talkie coverage is very spotty.
