Question about Midland Radio Communications

Midland model 1000

Cannot hear any noise at all, when you turn the radio on, even when you turn the squelch wide open. Made sure the unit is on the CB and not PA mode. I know it transmits , because I can hear him talking to me on my base station but he cannot hear me talking to him. ANY IDEAS ?

    Thanks for the information. I have to borrow a Midland mic from some to check to see if this solves the problem , because the other radio is a five pin Cobra.

    Purchased a new mic and still have the same problem. Say for example, you're on channel 19 the lights on the radio bar scale are all lit up as theres plenty of action on 19 But that is all . You SEE but heare NOTHING This radio is so inexpensive , It would cost more for a tech to fix it than the radio is worth. THANKS any way

How do you silence the squelch on the recieving radio on a midland lxt420?

Turn the squelch knob either clockwise or counterclockwise until the noise stops. Go no further than just where it stops. If that doesn't work there may be a defect. If there's no knob, look in program options for "squelch" and set it progressively higher until the noise quits, but just far enough that it quits.

How do i stop motorcycle engine noise in my midland 75-822?

It is most likely picking the noise up from the power source even if you have a filter on that---not too many things that can be done about that but some radios react more to this than others..........

A Midland 1001z with a 103 whip ant. They are both NEW. When I turned on the radio all I heard was like the power sound but no volume! I even tried a exturnal speaker! Nothing! Any IDEA's????

Is the mic good? If there is a problem with the mic, it will not put the radio into receive mode and you will hear nothing.

Also make sure the radio is not on PA mode, or make sure the squelch isn't too high.

there are also times when it is really quiet on the radio and you won't hear any static. keep this in mind.

The squelch must be wide open or the whole unit powers down. Is this something I can fix by soldering? It sounds like a bad pot....

No it is NOT a bad Pot, what is happening is that with the Squelch "Open" The "Trigger" for that circuit, is getting "Swamped" by signal, and is shorting out, the MCU, senses this and tells the Power Supply it is drawing too much current, and shuts it down. You will need to troubleshoot this area. It may be a very difficult to find. First you need a service manual.
Above is a USER manual.

Try this. While with the engine running and radio on, while you hear the noise, disconnect the antenna wire from the radio. (DO NOT KEY IT).

If the noise is gone, then the noise is coming in from the antenna. A new location may be needed.

If the noise is still there then its coming in from the power line. You need to get a ground loop isolator. Make sure its not one for RCA cables. You need one for the power line. It connects to your power source, and then your radio connects to it. this will take most of the noise out.

How do I deactivate the RX feature on this radio? Too much static.

What you want to do is tighten up the squelch adjustment and that should reduce the white noise you are hearing. also keep them away from any computers, the square waves generated by them will open up your squelch annoyingly as well.

Model SX750CR will send OK, can not receive.

There's no mute feature on 2-ways.

Will the 2 units work with each other? If so, then it could be an issue with the squelch codes.

There's usually a push button on those units that will "open" the squelch momentarily and you should then hear squelch noise and maybe get a green light to tell you squelch is open. If you have that and don't hear the noise, it could be a bad speaker.

Horrible Noise

It may be a cold solder joint on one of the stand up boards. Check all your connections and solder any bad joints.
