Most likely cause is a weak electrolytic capacitor in the frequency synthesizer circuit or a voltage regulator that feeds power to it. As they age, these capacitors, which contain a viscous acidic electrolyte, can dry out but will function when warm, at least for a while, before they fail completely.

WHEN I KEY THE MIKE THE NEEDLE ON THE RADIO GOES FROM 3 TO 1


every day? can you add more info.. the more noise on the RX end will make the needle higher then the TX setting so if this is a noisey day and you have 3-9 s-units on the rx yes a needle will drop. without having a watt meter to see if your power is dropping when you TX is different.. add a inline watt meter and make sure you have a decent power source. and TX and see what it is showing for wattage. if it drops then check power supply first make sure its giving enough amps. then next chk swr's and radio..

No TX/ rx Radio Shack TRC-495


it probably jumped freq. somehow. There is now manual or anything but a picture of this radio and a few tune up rv's but thats it.I have the exact same radio and it works fine If you can put it on an oscilloscope it should tell you right away what the problem is. Then try a frequency counter.

I have a magnum omega s 45 hp that goes into hyper scan what can i do


Hi don,

Hyperscan is usually, but not the only domain of scanning receivers.

Does it affect your Tx or Rx, if not, then there is nothing wrong, but if you want it to stop scanning for an active channel, then press the scan button once to stop it.

I hope that answers your query.

Cheers,
Peter

My cb cobra 29 ltd problem is channel 1 is ok but channel 2 not receive


Did you have someone get on channel 2 to see??? Maybe channel 2 was quiet and channel one had better receive or noise.. You never know until you check it with another radio. That is NOT a common issue at all on those radios. Better off doing that test.

Red RX/TX and red ANT light on my CB


Well,first hand ,some cobra radio,s have red some have green RX/TX lights, but are you modulating? Some green lights turn red. What is your standing Wave on the antenna,s? You need to check it and the output of the radio. To do this you need a watt or field strenth meter. Can get one at Radio Shack. Your standing Wave is ok as long as it is below a 2. That has to be done on the antenna. ..hope this helps...

Magnum 257 No Audio Being Transmitted


Hello.I have a similar situation on a Magnum 257 HP operating on SSB (AM and FM works fine). If i Transmit it works fine, but when i release the Mic button (after TX), in the bottom side were the RX level should be, it appear somth like a signal level 3 to 5 (constant and continous), but i can't get any reception at all. Only if i turn the TX power level to MAXand i transmit, then it goes back to reception, but not every time. Somtime after TX i need to push the mic button 2-3 times to make it recive somthing, but this wors only if the power level is over 60-70% an i repeat, only on SSB.Can i get some help with this issue?

On rx , i have a low carrier , sometimes cannot hear someone vs another radio


Depends on how it was modded? Were both the TX and RX broadbanded and tetuned?? Possibly poor work..
