Please don't touch any internal adjustments. It is like a 10 digit combination lock that is set to open. If you start changing the numbers, you will never get it open.
I think the problem is with your tone coded squelch (CTCSS). Your radio channel is like a telephone party line. If your CTCSS is not on, everytime you turn your radio on you will hear anyone on that channel that is close enough to hear.
If you are trying to use these radios for serious communications, that will drive you nuts to hear everybody else talking but not about what you need to hear. To try to mitigate this problem, CTCSS was created. There are 38 different codes. If you for example set your unit to operate on code 11 and your other unit is set to operate on code 12, you could not hear each other.
Now let's add a third unit set to not use CTCSS at all. Neither one of you will be able to hear this third unit but he can hear both of you. Now you set the second unit to code 11 like the first unit. Now you will be able to hear each other. The third unit will still be able to hear both of you but since he is not transmitting code 11, you still can't hear him.
If you are hearing some traffic, it is because they have their CTCSS set to the same code that you are set to. Look in you operators manual for CTCSS Privacy Codes. Set your radios accordingly and I think you will be in business. Let me know if this doesn't take care of you problem.

What does the "RX" mean on the display? How do


RX means that the radio is receiving a signal, this will put most of the cobra 2-ways into a locked state. many of the cobra models have an issue were after a bit of use, they will seem to receive a "mystery signal" sometimes, carefully taking the radio apart and cleaning out the inside with canned air will help, you may also check the terminals that the batteries connect too, otherwise the SoC (system on a chip microcontroller) likely has an issue.
