I had problems removing mine also. 1st remove the clip. With the back of the radio facing you push down firmly with your thumb and slide it off. At 1st I didn't think mine removed but after some extra force I was able.

Sorry, but Midland has apparently disowned that model, and I can't locate any info on it. If the case is similar to my Midlands though, there's a clip, about 3/4 inch wide, at the bottom of the rear of the radios (below the belt clip - if installed). Place a finger, coin, or screwdriver (gently) into the indent at the top of the clip and pull downward. It should swing down to let you remove the battery cover.

When I place the walkie talkie in the charger base, the light indicator does not come on. I've put new batteries in the walkie talkies. Also, on another walkie talkie, it constantly shuts off when I...


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.

Walkie talkies were working yesterday (gift from Christmas) and today the red power light is on indicating both working, but we can only get sound out of one of them.....any suggestions? brand new...


Hello,
These walkie talkies are pretty simple to use. Turn on and turn the volume up and talk. So if you turn it on it is possible for there to be enough juice in the batteries to make the LED function but not enough to modulate (or talk) to the other walkie talkie. Have you tried to replacing the batteries with new ones yet? Sometimes recharge ables go bad and they are no good when you install them into your item. So make sure the batteries you installed are "new." And replace in both units. Should this not work, given the nature of the item and the age of those who will more than likely be using them, they break and soldier joints come loose. The back has a screw that is a specialty tool to remove. Outside of removing that and taking a look there is not much that can be done. Make sure to put at least 5 feet between the two radios to allow for good reception.
Regards, Tony

The battery is fully charged on the walkie talkies and all are on the same channel, however out of 12 walkie talkies only 2 will work. When ever you push the push to talk button the walkie talkie shuts...


Your batteries are either no good, or not charged. When you press the PTT button it takes more energy than being in standby mode. If you have a battery problem it will fail quickly when the PTT is pressed.

Rechargeable batteries last approx. 18-24 months. Check your battery for a 3-digit date code. It is usually a 3 digit number followed by a couple of letters. The numbers tell the date of manufacture. The first number is the year, followed by the week of the year. 025 would be 2010 the 25th week. (or if very old it could be 2000 the 25th week.)

If you feel age is not a problem, you might check your charger(s) to see they are fully powered, and clear of debris on the contacts (and the radio contacts as well). Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.

A few tips: Be certain when placing your radios on the charge they are turned off. Check your wall outlet to be certain it doesn't get shut off with a light switch. Expect to replace your batteries every 2-3 years.

Best regards.

One of my midland lxt 420 walkie talkies wont charge!!!!!


If it has rechargable batteries in it like mine does, the batteries have probably lost all of its life.. you can replace them.. if you dont have batteries, you could have a loose wire inside the walkie talkie that wont let it charge..

Motorola Walkie-Talkie will not turn on.


Unfortunately problems involving electronics don't fix them self. If the radio did not work and then it worked after a day or two then it is quite possible that you did have water in the radio. if this is the case. then you will probaly have more problems in the short future as the contaminants from the water start to destroy the board. In this case the best thing to do is open the radio and use an electronics parts cleaner like the tuner cleaner from radio shack and clean the board. Trust me, I have had many customers that have ignored the problem and it cost them later.

Good Luck
