when you say "it use to send a voice before i messed about with it" can you expand on that, 

did you change menu items? a bit more detail always helps trying to diagnose issues

also can you add a bit more detail around "does not transmit voice when you push ptt sends a carrier no voice" is this using repeaters? of direct on calling channels?

did the radio come pre programmed with any repeaters / channels ?

if not. there is a factory default option looking at the manual, bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut, but it is the ultimate option if nothing else helps

try the factory default option, do one thing at a time, test between each step and then you can back track easier if you find an issue

i had same issue with a baofeng,

two things showed up on google for quiet audio for the baofeng (prob apply to you as well)

1:- make sure set to wide not narrow FM
2:- make the hole over the mike bigger,

so i got an external mike for about £7 and drilled the little hole over the mic to 3-4 time size and far better, don't mind doing that to a cheap accessory but not the radio :)

also got a colinear antenna (<£50 delivered from moonraker) and connectors to connect it to the baofeng, instead of 5-10 miles, i can now hear the danbury repeater and TX to medway and maidstone from far side of sheppey dropping hints for xmas of a small vhf / uhf rig for xmas as well :)
