My CB does not work

When my friend pulled it out of his truck, it worked. It sat in his shop for quite some time, and now I need one. He gave it to me. Now it does not work.

It is a Cobra 18 Ultra Weatherband 3

It turns on and off. The mic works (seems to) since the TX light emphasizes when I push and talk. The channel selectection LED/lights are not functioning, so I do not see what channel I am on. I can push the channel buttons but the green number lights do not come on.

Many thanks,

Michael

I just picked up a 99 china cobra ltd st. Tx works on all channels, but no Rx on channels 1-19. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.


somebody tampered with internal adjustors seems to me. you can take a screw driver and turn off receive for so many channels but crank it for higher band. It was probably locked on a upper channel for a Friendly chat station say Channel #28. Where they stayed and talked on 1 channel all time. Could be that. Maybe its got broke wires or board on that other set of channels or parts fried, chip bad etc. Get it checked out at CB shop. if you have any knowledge, turn IF to receive and crank up receive inside radio. If don't know anything take to shop..sounds like simple fix to me.

I have a CD 175 Honda motorcycle, 1972 that needs general repair, having sat for 20 years, safe, dry and warm. I need a manual.


I have a manual I borrowed from a friend. Cannot part with it but I can scan pages to get you started if there is specific information you need. Quite comprehensive for the broad range of bikes.

GE SpaceMaker JVM140001 just quit


Same thing happened to our unit. My wife had started cooking potatoes and we left house for an hour. Came back and unit was dead, nothing worked. Verified power @ plug. Unplugged, pulled control panel and checked fuse which is mounted @ top of circuit board (will now refer to as CB), back side of interface panel. It passed continuity test. Inspected wiring and was all intact, no sign of burn thru. Varistor visual also looked good, no discoloration or burns. Removed (5) fasteners that hold CB to interface and inspected back side. Noted minor "blackening" @ pin location #1 of the (5) pin plug immediately beneath fuse. Resoldered because connection looked poor. Plugged back in and tested, all features worked correctly!

Cobra 29 NW LTD does nothing


Why do you have to fix it? If the local CB shop looked at it last then take it back to them its their problem.

Matching Antenna, or ??????


If the antenna is tunable, you definitely need to start out by having the swr set properly on the antenna. Also, make sure the plastic ferrel, (the small round white piece) is between the top of the antenna bracked and the antenna itself. It is there to make sure the antenna does not ground out to the vehicle. If the antenna is grounding out, it will be like no antenna at all. I have also had a few customers that have had broken coaxes straight out of the factory package on cheaper antenna setups.
