Vertex Standard EVX-531 EVX-534 & EVX-539 Service & Refurbishment Information

Vertex Standard VX-241 Servicing GuideThis article serves as a guide to what you will need in order to perform a full service and alignment on the Vertex Standard EVX-531, Vertex Standard EVX-534Vertex Standard EVX-539.

Vertex Standard EVX-534 & EVX-539 Gotcha

There’s a very but significant gotcha with the programming & aligment software on the EVX-530 series which applies to the EVX-534 and EVX-539. 1/2 way through the life of the Vertex Standard EVX-534 and EVX-539, these two radios had a feature-lift where Vertex Standard changed the display from a LED 14-segment display to an LCD dot-matrix display. For the old 14-segment display you’ll need the CE-142 programming software but for the LCD-enhanced display models, you’ll need the CE-151 programming software. This does not apply to the EVX-531. The EVX-531 requires the CE-142 programming software only as there’s ever been one version of the no-keypad EVX-531 model.

What’s Needed For A Service

At Radiotronics, we offer everything you’ll need to do a full service of the Vertex Standard EVX-530 series including the service manual, programming software, radio interface box and programming cable.

Vertex Standard EVX-531 Refurbishment Parts

Below are all the parts needed to refurbish a Vertex Standard EVX-531 digital two-way radio. Whilst there are technically two models (G6 & G7), for the purposes of refurbishment, they both take the same housing etc. However, it’s worth checking the service manual regarding the iteration as there have been subtle changes in the EVX-531 over its lifetime. One notable change was the speaker size.

How to Open a Motorola CP040 or DP1400

Motorola 6686533Z01The only way to open a Motorola DP1400 or Motorola CP040 without damaging the casing is by using the correct tool.

The tool you need is the Motorola 6686533Z01 tool.

> We sell the 6686533Z01 for £9.99 on our main website – click here.

If you attempt to remove the casing without this tool you risk damaging the case or, worse, damaging the radio circuit board or chassis.

> Also see our Motorola DP1400 Front Cover Housing which is available in multiple colours.

Front Cover Removal Procedure

There are just three simple steps to open the casing and potentially change the front cover on a Motorola CP040. The procedure is practically identical on the DP1400.

> Note: This short guide assumes you’ve already removed the battery and unscrewed the antenna.

1. Remove The Knobs

First you must remove the plastic knobs on top. Failure to do this may result in you snapping the volume and channel shafts.

2. Remove the Chassis from the Front Cover

Using the chassis opening tool, starting at the bottom, prise the chassis from the front cover. Be very careful not to strain the front cover housing or damage the chassis. The chassis will prise easily, so if you need to use too much force, you may be doing it wrong.

3. Remove the Speaker

You can remove the speaker by simply removing the speaker retainer.

Front Cover Fitting

Simply follow the steps in reverse.
