I have a Midland Marine Radio 78-101 that does not power on. 12V is going into the unit but when I turn the on-button, nothing happens. There are no on-board fuses. Any idea what the problem might be?

Any trick to power up radio? Radio has 12 V connected and will not turn on

There should not be a "trick" to getting the radio to work. Make sure that the power connection is actually sending 12v. Also verify that the ground is good, that can cause issues. If possible, connect another 12v device to the power and ground and see if that one works.
If so, there may be a fuse on the radio that is blown. There are often fuses inside the case, near the power supply. If you are comfortable doing it, open the radio and see if you can find a fuse and verify that it is good. If not, take it to a radio shop and have them check it.

How do you turn up the power on a midland 1001z

have you ever listened to a radio that 4 channels away and you have to go to that channel to hear what they are saying and they sound great? Well actually they don\'t because if they did they wouldn\'t be splashing you 4 channels away.A cb radio is supposed to put out no more than 4.5 - 5 watts max. thats because you will be the one doing the splashing if you turn it up to much.For one thing not only do you have to turn up the modulation and the power but also the voltage it takes to operate the radio at the higher voltage and this is the killer ,you will still sound better at the lower voltage but you will have no voltage to run the power so now its not activated so you turned it up for nothing.

I have a Midland 1001Z (in use about a year) that draws power when it is off. This happened when the unit was not in use and drained the car's battery. On the bench I checked and there's about 500...

it shouldn't be drawing. if there was a real problem with the radio it shouldn't even turn o..,off.clicked is switch power the juice.pulling actually is it if see actually to meter clamp a need would you resistance will have nothing to do with power drawing. you will alwayssee zme sort of resistance. on. I have left a cb on in my vehicle for over a week and it did not kill the battery. I think what ever drained your battery has little or nothing to do with your b radio. ohms is resistance. it is not a measurement of current. this does not tell our it is drawing anything

On many of my Midland G-30 / G-28 radios, when you turn them on, the display shows full power. When you press the PPT button, the unit shuts down and the display show OFF. I've tried many battery/radio...

I had the same problem with my Midland G-30 radios. The problem is with the batteries not the radio. I put a test meter on my batteries and saw the were not making full voltage/amperage. Got two new batteries ($15 each on ebay) and problem was solved. These are great GMRS portables. Replace the batteries and you will be very happy with the unit.

Good luck!

Nothin will work

If you've got 12v constant on the yellow, 12v switched on the red, and chassis ground to black, your fuses are good the radio is powered properly.

When you plug the harness into the back of the radio you should hear the CD transport cycle. That's telling you the radio's getting power. Hit the reset button (pin-hole switch on front panel) and hold the small square open/close button for 2-3 seconds.

If still nothing, the radio needs service. I'd send that model to Alpine in CA for repair.
