Radio trouble shooting tip:

Sometimes a radio can have intermittent operation and/or generally flakey problems that can be attributed to dirty, loose or oxidized connections on the A or B power terminals (these are connected to the large gauge red and black power wires). Checking and if needed, cleaning or repairing these connections can fix lots of different problems with these radios. Motorola started covering the back side of these 2 connections (inside the connector housing) with a glob of epoxy on later production cables (it also gets on the connector body and adjacent wires). Actually the epoxy makes repair/replacement just about impossible, but they should not have problems very often, if ever. I would not recommend using any epoxy on used cables because of the possibility of old pre-existing partially oxidized connections that you would never be able to repair again if they go bad. This tip applies to any other accessories (i.e. Systems 9000 siren/PA, Systems 9000 vehicle repeater, Systems 9000 External Options Housing, etc.) that use these connectors.

 

Syntor X 9000 Radio Cable Pin Out:

Below is a pin number locater for the radio cable connector. The view is looking towards the pins that plug into the radio's J1 connector with the cable on the left side. Motorola's contact removal tool or a home made equivalent can be used to remove and move the number 1 through 37 contact pins in these connectors. To open the connector housing the neoprene gasket corners must be pulled up to gain access to the 4 phillips head screws. Removing these screws allows the housing on the back of the connector to be removed. The C clip on the center screw jack must also be removed. It is difficult, actually impossible sometimes, to peel back the neoprene without damaging it. I have seen connectors where just the part of the neoprene gasket over the 4 screw heads was removed. The gasket may need to be replaced if you want to maintain the original connector sealing.
