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 just bought the eclipse cld and it won't turn on after charging for hours


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

I purchased a brand new P113 Ryobi charger about 2 years ago. It has never worked. If I put a P104 battery in for a charge, it looks like it works correctly. I push the battery tester on the battery...


If you have your receipt, check with Ryobi to see if it is still under warranty. It comes with either a 2 or 3 year warranty, depending on when it was purchased. If it is still covered, get it replaced/repaired. If it is not, buy the P117 charger. $30 at Home Depot. It has a 90 day satisfaction guarantee. If it charges your batteries properly, you're good. If not, bring it back if you don't like/want it. My P113 won't get out of test mode now, or charge Lithium batteries anymore. So I bought the P117 yesterday. Works great, and it's a lot cheaper than new batteries! And it has a 3 year warranty.

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..

Hi, It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.
