What is the Motorola CP200D two-way radio?
The Motorola CP200D two-way radio is one of the most popular walkie-talkies that Motorola manufactures. It’s perfect for construction, hospitality, and retail industries.
The CP200d works with all the radios in the MOTOTRBO family and has clear audio quality, fantastic coverage, and great battery life. What's impressive about this particular model is that it allows you to choose between analog or digital, offering a truly reliable and affordable way for work crews to connect.
Despite its ease of use, some of its features aren’t very obvious.
Even though these models come with an informative booklet, most people don’t read the instructions and eventually lose them! If you would like to read the digital form of the CP200D manual, here is the CP200D manual.
Why are my Motorola CP200D Two-Way Radios beeping?
You may be annoyed by some of the sounds the CP200D model makes. That’s because Motorola programmed this beeping noise into their radios by default.
However, we have good news! There is a way to disable this feature and stop your radios from sounding off.
There are a few reasons why your Motorola CP200D may be beeping. But first, you need to identify the problem.
Answering the question, “When does it beep?” will help you identify what is going on and how to fix it.
1. Low Battery
2. Wrong Housing
3. Courtesy Tone
The beeping noise could be an indication that your battery needs to be charged. This sound occurs when you touch the push-to-talk button or sound out consistently.
It won’t stop until the device is on the charger or it dies completely.
The cure for this annoying sound is easy – plug it in and charge the battery, or switch out the low battery with a full one!
If a button is stuck or being pressed down by the housing, you may experience intermittent beeping sounds.
There are two different CP200D versions; each one has a differently shaped button. If you re-case your walkie-talkie in the wrong housing, it may add pressure to the buttons, leading to constant and annoying beeping noises.
You will need to remove the troublesome housing and replace it with one that fits properly.
You hold down the button and speak into your 2-way radio. The sound transmits to your coworker, and when you let go – BEEP! An annoying noise follows.
This is called a “courtesy tone” or “Roger Beep,” and it helps the people you’re speaking to know when you are finished talking. But not everyone loves this feature, and it's not easily removed, in fact, unless programmed into one of the radio buttons, it can only be removed at time of programming.
Of all the tones that really aggravate people, the courtesy tone is the one that is often considered to be the most annoying. While this feature does serve a purpose (being polite), it is, in reality, constantly being ignored. Sometimes the radio can become oversensitive, preventing the user from properly transmitting when needed. When we ship our radios, this tone has already been disabled for you! Going back to the original CP200 radio, not one customer ever wanted this tone enabled.
