TYT MD-380 Not Unmuting

Postby Bradley » Thu Sep 17, 2015 2:59 pm

Having an issue with one of these radios.

Basically on any digital channel it does not unmute - i.e. no digital audio comes out of the speaker. When a call is in progress the call id and user id appear and the unit beeps at the end of the transmission, just no voice.

TX is fine.

Analogue TX/RX is fine.

4 different codeplugs, some from online, some that are in successful use by other club members have also been tried.

Any ideas?

First of all, has this 380 ever worked OK on digital ?

Have a look around on the yahoo group here https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TYT-TYTERA/info. I have a recollection of seeing a similar issue raised that was a hardware problem that the poster fixed with a little internal delving. I'll try and find it again and post a link if I do.

Thank you very much for your replies.

It was working intermittently on digital, so does sound like the exact problem described on the yahoo group.

Is it something that you are comfortable tackling yourself? Is it an import or UK based supplier? If the latter then a call to them ought to sort out a replacement.

Let us know how you get on.

It is not my radio, just somebodies from the club that we are trying to get sorted. It has been a fun couple of weeks as nearly everybody has got a different model of DMR radio to use on the new repeater (GB7CK)!

Hopefully he will be able to get a replacement, otherwise I am sure we can sort it between us.

Thanks for the pointer in the right direction. It did have us somewhat baffled!
