Default Minitor V Issue

I have a Minitor V that is having issues and I'm seeking advice. It is a 2-channel stored voice pager. On frequency 1 in Monitor F1 mode it will alert if the correct tones go off, but will only stay open for 5 or 6 seconds. Despite it being in Monitor mode if I key up a radio on that frequency, it won't pick it up. If i hold down the squelch/reset button and key up a radio, then you can hear the transmission. In the other frequency, despite the settings being correct, nothing will come through. I've tried playing with the squelch setting but it didn't work.

I did take this codeplug and loaded it onto another Minitor V and it worked fine, so I'm believing that this is a hardware issue and not a programming issue. Perhaps it is a tuning issue?

I'd love to hear any input anybody has. If it is a hardware issue, should I send it off to an authorized dealer for repair?

Thanks!

Check to see if the pager is set to wideband. If so change it to narrowband and see if it works better.

Wide/narrow band doesnt matter in this situation.

Go to your programming, and go to Model Options. Check your reset function setting. Set it to Revert N or it may say Delay_N with Revert.

this just happend to one of my Minitor V's vhf stored voice two channel. It was a hardware problem and i had to send it into the motorola depot. Because i didn't have a warranty, i had to pay $78 flat rate but they just sent back a brand new pager.

hope this helps.

I would also think that it is a hardware issue. If you took the same codeplug and put it in a new pager and it worked just fine. Than it has to be a hardware problem.

Awesome. I know that this pager is out of warranty because I checked it on the motorola site. When you say motorola depot...do you mean a local repair shop or do you mean motorola itself?
