Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
I was recently given this radio from a friend of mine. He bought the radio new about 2 months before. The radio worked fine. He took the radio to a local CB shop to get some extras added on. As far as I know he had talkback added, a meter that changes colors, and he had it tuned up. When he got it back it did nothing at all. So he gave it to me. Is there anything that I should check out.
Make sure diode 23, ( rectifier ). Isnt shorted or open, as a tech I see a lot of DO IT YOURSELFERS, hook em up backwards. The diode # 1N14003. Cheap fix,

Yes, take it back to the cb shop. If they are a reputable shop, they will stand behind their work.
I own a shop and have always stood behind my work 100%. Once I went so far as to buy a brand new Magnum S-3 to replace a used one for a customer that one was messed up doing a power modification that should not have been done on that radio. I came to find out that the company I bought the mod kit from didn't know what they were doing and had the instructions wrong. I still have the broken radio to prove it.

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.
