This can sometimes be the sign of a low or bad battery. Try swapping your battery with a known good unit and see if the problem persists. If you do find swapping batteries solves the problem, then you will need to troubleshoot if it is the battery or the charger which needs attention. Clean your contacts on the battery and charger with a pencil eraser to ensure good contact, and always have the radio turned off when charging. Batteries typically last approx. 18-24 months before needing replaced.

It depends on the charger. If you hear a hum on receive when it's charging turn it off.

Depends on terrain, trees, hills, buildings, pole barns, etc. Those little throw away radios that claim up to 30 miles cannot. The curve of the earth changes every 22.5 miles. So, I often say, 0.5 miles to 5 miles on a 4-5 watt business band walkie talkie with a fully charged battery. It is often more, but could be less. Please be more specific. They talked to the Moon and back on 1 watt.

You'll need the Kenwood serial cable and software to program this radio. Your best bet would be to contact a Kenwood Customer Service Representative directly. You should have the the radios in front of you when you call so that you can answer questions about them instead of having to call back, etc.

Kenwood contact information can be found here. The TK-260 radio falls under the "Land Mobile & Business" category.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

the manual from the manufacturer is pretty much useless. every time i wanted to do something with mine all the manual said was "see a sales rep or dealer!" i have the software (windows version) that has a pretty good help file in it. you may want to check out the yahoo boards for kenwood.

One of the keys has been programmed as the lock button. you will have to experiment by holding each button for a couple of seconds until you hear a tone that tells you the radio is unlocked.
On the one I have for our fire and rescue it is the < button but it could be any of the four on the front or the two on the side below the talk button.

First, clean all the connectors associated with this board. Over time they can get corrosion built up on them and they stop conducting. Use De-OXIT or Isopropyl alcohol to clean them. You may have to clean the deviation control on the board or replace C* and C10. I doubt if the microphone amplifier, Q1, is bad but if you can check the voltages around it, that might give you a clue. This problem shouldn't be too hard to fix as the rest of the radio is working. Good Luck!

You can connect it to the MIC input through a 10K resistor. That's the easy way. https://www.mods.dk/manual.php?brand=kenwood has a better method. Go to this website and look for the TR-9130 area and you'll find several files.

White is usually the audio wire. Black is ground and red PTT. The shield goes to the mic ground connection. The pinout is in your TS-440 manual.

It may be an out of market radio, meaning from another country. Most cannot be programmed to USA frequencies. It may be a frequency not allowed in that model. You did not list a frequency, you have a Uhf radio, it can only be programmed for Uhf, business band channels and a few others, like manufacturing or shared emergency channels. more information please.

That radio is past the end of life support and parts cannot be gotten. The older units had issues with chips in them that control the tuner and generate signals, the chips are custom made for Kenwood. You may be able to sell it on EBAY for parts.
