Brand new trx1 wont turn on with batteries

Postby corps012588 » Sun Oct 27, 2019 11:05 pm

Hiya guys. So as the title suggests my trx1 wont turn on when using batteries alone.
It will turn on when running on mains power with and without batteries in.
I got it to turn on once on just battery power and thought I had cracked it but then when I went to turn it off to double check it just hung on the shutting down screen.
I have tried about 6 different brands of normal batteries and 3 different brands of rechargeable.
The scanner was bought from radio world and when I used their chat option their guy suggested a low cell which I think I have proven is not the case after being 40 quid down on batteries.
I paid extra for next day before 9 am delivery and am absolutely gutted as I currently have a very expensive paperweight that I have to send back on tuesday if I cant sort it.
Does anyone have any ideas or should I just wait and send it back?
Thank you and apologies for the long post

Send it back it should work out of the box. The radio is faulty and should be replaced

I hope it all goes well for you corps012588. It certainly sounds like it has an issue.

Thank you guys. I have to call them today to arrange pickup tomorrow.
Out of curiosity, is there a list of dmr frequencies like the analogue list?

Hi Mike it was a company called radioworld I have spoken to on of they people today who says that they need to test the scanner which I kind of understand but I'm not asking for my money back just a replacement for the faulty unit.
My wife got me it for our anniversary and now I've got to wait to play

Think you will just have to send it back and wait...
