Question about Cobra MicroTalk PR 1100 WX (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Brand New Cobra microtalk won't work!

I bought a pair of Cobra Microtalk PR 650 WX from Wal-mart today.....charged them up, and tried to turn them on to test them. According to the owner's manual, there's supposed to be a set on tones to indicate that the units are on, which never sounded. The display works fine, channel selection works fine, etc. But, they won't transmit nor recieve. I bought these for an upcoming trip, the package is way beyond damaged so I can't talke them back to Wal-Mart...Help!!

    oricom UHF050 40 channel vehicle mounted standard cradle mount with 6 dB gain antenna has been working fine for 3+ years in same config but now only the key noise at start and end of trans can be heard. It receives nothing, and at times it seems that the busy light is on all the time but I hear nothing. TX red light shows when transmitting. I have reset factory settings per the manual to no avail. How do I test the mike, and am I able to open the unit and test anything such as fuses etc?? many thanksGreg

I had to replace some of the cheap Chinese NiCad batteries to get mine to work. Check them all with a voltmeter, they should be at least 1.1 volts DC.

Im not sure if this radios can work with alkaline batteries like AAA or AA type, this will focus the problem in the batteries or in the charger

Double check against all the instructions - in particular, make sure the batteries are charged according to "before first use" spec, that the volume is turned up, and that the squelch (if fitted and not automatic) is adjusted properly. If it still doesn't work, take it back to Wal-Mart. If the product doesn't work, there's no need for the packaging to be in good condition - it's not as if they'll be needing it to resell the goods to anybody else. A.
