Depending on the type of microphone used, if not the type using the speaker as a microphone, it may be damaged. I would though, suggest you remove the battery, open the case and allow the innards to dry in a warm place for several days. Even daily exposure to the sun should work fine.

Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. Use electronic contact cleaner (spray type) on the PTT switch;
2. Use an external speaker/microphone and/or handsfree VOX headset
3. Replace the PTT switch. 4 solder points. Might not be easy but doable.

The last would require that you remove the defective PTT switch and use that as per sample when looking for replacement. Some printers uses the same type of switch. Familiarity with electronic components/circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would also be required.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The CLS has preprogrammed frequencies. The Bao can be user programmed. If both are Uhf, the Bao must match the CLS unless one of the CLS frequencies is already in use in the Bao. So, are you already using CLS and adding radios? You need the actual frequency and tone code. If you do not understand, contact a dealer like us, local is even better! Channel 1 is only an indicator, not a frequency. radiodude365@yahoo.com

You must have the RSS (radio service software) software and the correct cable. There is no resetting without these.

Check your battery connections and/or batteries. It sounds like the radio is trying to perform the “power on” sequence, but doesn’t have enough power to actually power on. Use fresh from the package or other “known good” batteries, and clean the battery contacts with rubbing alcohol and a clean paper towel. If there is corrosion or other oxidation on the contacts, you may need to use an emery board and then the alcohol wipe. Beyond that, the radio is not really “user serviceable”. Is there any chance the malfunctioning radio was exposed to water?

You must buy Motorola software from Motorola. Get a cable from them also. You also must have an FCC License to legally operate these radios. Your best best is to go through a dealer. The FCC License is quite hard to do without a dealer guiding you. It is easy to be ripped off and you must go through a coordinator. If not USA, still go through a dealer. The software and cable issue does not go away, ever.
