    I have six Motorola RDV2020. When I bring them into the living room they all flashes orange. Then when I walk out of our living room, it goes back to flashing red. Is our living room under some kind of Alien invasion?

    You may need to contact Motorola for details and procedures for those models.

    Hi there. By any chance have you dealt with Motorola XTNi radios? They look a lot like the RDX series but they are PMR446 radios. Do you know if these series of radios can be reflashed like the classical analog HT radios with a RIB and flashing adaptor? Thanks a lot!

    Hi Jim, chances are if there is a reset option, it probably won't resolve your issue, because from what you describe the radios are likely all programmed to different frequencies and/or PL tones. The AXU4100 was dealer programmable. If you need them all on a specific frequency, you will probably need to have them re-programmed. If you contact us we may be able to further assist.

    I have 4 AXU4100 Motorola radios all communicate but not with each other is there a way to set them to factory default so they will all communicate together.
    Thanks

    Hi Monteen, It depends. Is the orange light solid or is it blinking?

    I have a set of Motorola RDV2020 radios however they are not receiving from one end of my school building to the other. At times, when I try to send, an orange light appears, instead of red. I'm not sure of the age of these, but am wondering if they can be fixed or if they need a new battery. (Is it cost-prohibitive to just by a new battery?)

    Hi Alejandro, the LED normally stays solid red while in transmit or receive mode. It could happen if the radio is stuck in one of those two modes or if the PTT button is damaged or shorted. Did anything happen to the radios prior to your repair? Were they dropped or immersed in water?
