    thank you, i can be sure that it was not wired backwards. I do know that i hooked it up to the 40 amp leg of the charger by accident , not the 8 amp. i will check again all capacitors, and D23. i don't know exactly what 1N4004 is. I honestly don't know how to check the audio ic. I do have limited equipment. i am not too familiar with integrated circuits.

    sounds like it was the audio ic, thank you. im waiting on a new one now. i wonder if you could find one in a old tv or car radio? otherwise im waiting for the mail.

It sounds like it may have been hooked up backwards when hooked up to the battery charger. If so it probably blew the polarity diode (D23) (1N4004) and with no sound it probably blew the audio IC (TA7222AP) mounted to the case of the radio. Also look at all of the large capacitors and make sure that the tops are not swollen or busted open if so they need replaced also.

    The 1n4004 a type of diode. On the audio ic, if you hook the radio up like normal, run your finger across the pins of the audio ic on the printed circuit side. If it is good it will make loud noises. If it is bad it will not do anything. If it dosen't make noise it still could be bad capacitors but i would replace the IC first if hte capacitors are not swollen.

    Really the only thing the TA72222AP is used for is CB radios.

Is it possible to convert the cobra 29 wx nw st sound tracker cb to 10 meter amateur band?


No it cannot. If you want that buy a Ranger or a Galaxy.

The 29 can be altered to increase modulation and turned down in power to match it to amp for increased output of power.

Set to dead key a watt or so with a 100 watt amp it would dead key low and swing to 80 to 100 watts pep.(peak envelope power)

I cant start my 2006 charger, even though the lights, radio come on


Do you hear a clicking sound but nothing else?
If so, it sounds like your battery is dying, enough juice to power your small things...eg radio, lights but not enough juice to turn your engine over

Hope this helps

Had dead battery in 2002 honda civic got jump now word CODE in radio display


try disconecting the positive terminal of the batery for sevral minets (5-10) this will reset the brain box memory for the stero aswell as for the car it self.

what caused the batery to go dead in the first place?
things that i can think of :
1) left headlights on over night
2) bad altenator not charging batery
3) battery is old and not taking a charge anymore
4) new stero installed incorectly and drainging the batery
have you resently installed a new stero or amplifyer?
is the turn key igntion system hooked into the amp/stero antena lead so that thy are shut of when the ignition is?
of note: new streo >theres a blue wire marked ant that goes to the amplifyer if not there you need to find the orange accsesory wire coming from the turn key igntion>check for power when ignition is in the on & off states could be yellow in some cars but is usaly orange if this wire has on and of state controled by the turn key igntion this would be the wire to tap into for the amplyfire and the radio main power
check your radio's instaltion guide for code errors
its posible that when hooking up the jump it was done incorectly and blew up the radio
ie postive and negative where fliped
hope this helped :)

I have a 2004 mitsubishi endavore when i turn the car on it makes a loud popping noise inside the car. i had to replace my batery twice. i think it has to do with the speakers.


Ok, that's better. The popping sound is your radio picking up the electril of your engine.. Check the radio Antenaeand make sure it is tight. Car washes sometimes remove them so they don't get bent or broken.. Let me know

My n73 hang i cant use my phone if i replace batery hang again


Formating may solve this.
*You will lost contacts and files on phone, if you do this*

turn off the phone, press 3,*,call(green one) at a time and power on holding the keys ( it means finally 4 keys at a time, dnt laugh , it is way, phone can he hard formatted)

Try untill it askes for the time and country. Pressing 4 keys at a time is a bit tricky so, it is easy to miss one/two attempts, atleast i do.
