Question about Cobra Microtalk 100 FRS Walkie Talkie Radios 2 Pack

Microtalks won't charge

I've got a pair of Microtalks that I bought new about a year ago, they have'nt been used very much but they won't charge. I bought new batteries but still they won't take a charge. How long are the chargers normaly good for? The light won't come on for the charging unit. I've checked to make sure it's plugged in tight.

    Microtalk won't charge. We returned the first set we bought. The replacement set is having the same trouble. They worked one time, then never recharged again. The base light never turns on. When the radios are plugged directly into the wall they still won't turn on or charge.

I have the Cobra Microtalk 4100 FRS radios with charging base. After changing the batteries with new nimh rechargables the charge light would not illuminate and the unit would not charge. I noticed the original batteries had a metal band around one end. This band makes a small connection inside the battery compartment on the first battery. Seems to be a cheap way to ensure you dont try to recharge the unit with non-rechargable batteries installed. I rapped a small piece of tinfoil around one end of the first battery in the new set then popped it back in and now they will charge correctly again. Dont try this with non-rechargable batteries! I would recomend buying original replacement batteries.

I've got a Motorola RAZR 3 or 4 years old. I just bought a new car with Bluetooth (Ford Sync). How do I get the car to recognize the phone?


In order to make other devices see your motorola mobile phone, you should enable "discovery mode", which is activated in Bluetooth menu of your phone.
Please be aware that this feature is turning on only for 3 minutes, then new devices won't be able to find your cell phone. If 3 minutes is not enough, you can activate this feature again (and again).
This procedure is only required for initial pairing, there is no need to perform this operation every time.
Hope this helps!

Your model had a one year parts and labor warranty. The first place to start is with Haier's Customer Support 1-877-337-3639.. They're good folks and will try to work with you, if you approach the issue calmly. As far as a Recall is concerned, I am not aware of any for your model AC or any other model, for that matter.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

Maybe too late, but you should try with the Bushnell office directly. Bushnell bought the Bolle brand some years ago and so their local subsidiary is able to help..sometimes. at least better than the retailers or distributors.
i had pbs with the reflective coating of a pair of Bolle 2y ago and they changed a new pair for me. Their office is in Sheung Wan:

Kodak Easy Share z712 IS not detecting charged battery


I have the exact same camera almost a year too. It is a total "swinka" on batteries. About 10-15 shots on super ni-cads, and quits without warning.

A pair of Energizer 7X gave me near 500 shots. Much cheaper but still ...

So 4 months ago I bought a charger and 2 rechargeables. Charge one while using the other one.
I may get 70-90 shots per charge on these lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, without flash.

Testing the batteries without a load doesn't really tell you anything.
What's the reading? Should be well over 4 volts when fully charged. Mine show 4.2V

Microtalks don't seem to charge, even charged many hours


When you say they worked fine for a long time, do you mean a long time as in "hours", or for many months or years? If hours, then remove the batteries and be sure they are in correctly and plug the charger into a different electrical outlet. If the radios have not been used for many months or longer, you probably need to replace the rechargeable battery.
