Question about Motorola Radio Communications

1 Answer

I have a set of Motorola 5820 2 way radios. One works fine. The other turns on, I hear static, can turn the static up, but no display or response from the control buttons. I replaced the batteries, one was leaking. Cleaned up the compartment and contacts, still same result. Is the circuit board or display toast? Any suggestions for a fix?

Problem resolved. Although the membrane control panel passed the diagnostic test, it was defective. Probably a low voltage conductor went to ground, allowing the buttons to operate but throwing the control board into error mode.

SOURCE: maxent MX-42VM11 won't turn on

I had the identical problem (clicking sounds, no picture, but just the sound). I took Richdogg's advice above, but it didn't work out for me (lost money on the purchase of the part) - no offense Richdogg as I'm sure that was the problem in your TV. I later found out that the problem was with the Y-Sustain (also called Y-Main) Board. As with most parts in this TV, this is also made by Samsung and used in Maxent, Magnavox and a number of other 42" TVs. The part number is LJ 92-01256A (using LJ 41-02668A also give you the same part number). Hope others will find this useful.

SOURCE: I just bought a 2004 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab. The

Call the dealer who sold you this car while it is still under warranty and insist that they repair it. The cruise control is quite a complex system and a scan is required to isolate the problem.

If you care to learn a bit more about the system read on:
Cruise control systems are comprised of electronic and mechanical subsystems. This is how they work.
We all know that the things that control the speed of the car are the gas pedal and the brakes. And the brain that normally controls the speed of the car is the brain of the driver. The driver senses the speed by looking at the speedometer and then adjusting the pressure on the gas pedal or the brakes to compensate for variations in the desired speed. The cruise control system does the same thing with one exception. It only controls the gas pedal - it doesn't even know there are brakes in the car!!
The vehicle's speed sensor which is mounted on the output shaft of the transmission (the thing that drives the wheels) sends electrical pulses to the computer, pulses which are generated by a magnet spinning past a sensor coil. When the vehicle's speed increases the frequency of the pulses increases. For any given speed of the vehicle there is a corresponding pulse frequency. It is this pulse frequency which the cruise control tries to maintain as a constant. You think of it as the vehicle's speed.
The brains of the control box of the cruise control has three functions. First, it stores the speed of the vehicle when you press the "set" button whild travelling at the desired speed. It keeps this value in its memory until you turn the ignition off. Second, it receives the pulses from the transmission sensor and compares the frequency of those pulses to the frequency value stored in its memory - the set point. Third, it sends pulses to a vacuum controlled diaphragm connected to the accelerator linkage. The pulses it sends regulates the amount of vacuum the diaphragm receives. The more pulses, the more vacuum and the more vacuum the more force on the accelerator linkage. The system continues to add vacuum force until the set point speed is reached. At that point the system modulates the amount of vacuum the diaphragm receives in an effort to maintain the number of pulses coming from the speed sensor as close to the stored value as possible.
OK, so this "brain" works just fine in controlling the speed of the vehicle until something goes wrong. What can go wrong?
First, the VSS, the thing that sends pulses to the brain might fail. Normally the speedometer also fails so that's pretty easy to diagnose.
Next, the power to the brain can be interrupted. A blown fuse or a corroded connector can prevent the brain from working correctly or at all.
Next, the brains can lose its ability to function. A faulty component can prevent the brain from doing its thing. The brain is a pretty sophisticated box that contains a lot of electronic components including a microprocessor. NOrmally when the brains fail you need to replace the box..
The vacuum diaphragm can develop a leak. If that happens then the cruise control might set and hold the speed for some time however if the leak is larger than the supply line and modulator can add vacuum to the system the system will slowly lose control and the vehicle will slow down. This can also happen if the vacuum line to the diaphragm is cracked or loose.
Finally, the linkage that connects the diaphragm to the accelerator linkage can fail. Some aftermarket cruise control systems use a short length of what looks like fat key chain - bead chain. I have seen several units fail when the chain simply breaks.
Diagnosis of a failed system can be a complex process. Most vehicle shop manuals have a multi-page diagnostic flow chart that the dealer mechanics use to solve failures. If there isn't an obvious problem like a broken wire, a blown fuse or a leaking vacuum line then the problem most likely lies in the brains of the unit or in the switch that sets the speed and contains the other functions of resume and accelerate. Most cruise control switches are on the directional signal stem, a multifunction switch assembly with fine wires that break due to the constant motion of the wires as you use the directionals in your daily travels.

I just bought it and tested on a channel and eliminator code and it worked fine. But after a while I cannot hear static when holding "mon" and cannot hear the other radio if I talk into one. This happens...


If the radios are working fine otherwise, don't worry about the monitor feature not creating white noise (static). If you are still having a problem with the radios, try setting the interference eliminator code to off (zero). And turn off any other special features to see if you can regain communications. Then slowly add the features back in as you need them. All radios must be identical in freq., code, and features.

Best regards.

I have 2 Motorola SX700 the black one static when i turn it on


Here are a few troubleshooting ideas. 1) Check your battery installation, and clean the contacts both of the radio and battery with a pencil eraser. 2) Install fresh batteries (or swap the rechargeable from your other unit) to see if it is a battery related issue. Static is a sign of a bad or low battery. 3) Turn your CODE on to a setting and continue using the radios as normal with a CODE to block the noise. It is possible due to dropage the radio may be more sensitive to RF in your enviroment than the other radio now. It could have a possible hairline crack in the componet board, or a cracked/damaged speaker.

I hava a practically new two-way radio that does not work. The radio does not seem to work when turned on. I just hear a slight static from the speaker. Is there a reset or button press I can perform to...


The fact you do not have a display indicates you either have a bad or damaged radio, or you have a battery or battery contact problem. Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and insert known good batteries. If this does not solve the problem the only solution is to replace the radio.

When I turn on the radio the indicator light on the top of the unit just flashes. I cannot set the frequency or code. When I push the monitor button I hear static but otherwise the radio is dead.


The flashing light can be an indication there is activity on the frequency the radio is set to. Pressing the monitor button should give you the white noise (static) sound, so this function is working correctly. This also tells us your speaker is working fine, as well as your volume. The typical reason you cannot go into programming mode (when you hold the PTT in while turning on the radio and hear the female voice announce your frequency) is a bad or moved internal PTT switch. This typically happens over time as a user presses ever harder on the PTT to communicate. However, this does not explain why you are not receiving. This could simply be a result of an incorrect PL code in conjunction with the bad PTT. If you have a frame removal tool, you can extract the component board and physically look at the internal PTT. You can then hold in the very small button and program the radio to the frequency/PL you desire. If you are needing the radio repaired, you can get this style unit repaired for around $69 flat rate

Same station same code only working one way motorola 250


If one set has FRS and GMRS channels and the other doesn't, the FRS channels may not match. Try using the lower channels or going up or down one channel.

bring it to a technician, and let him know what the new battery and charger did to your normally fine phone. They should be responsible for repairing your phone. No easy fix as described above. Let me know how it works.

Motorola FV500 2 way radio can send/cant receive


Do you hear the Beeps on the speaker? Check for the QT and the code squelch are the same in both radios, try to set code squelch in "0". Make sure that the radio is not receiving or the other one is not transmiting, with two radios will see the same.
