SOURCE: SWR Cal meter is stuck
Passing a small magnet in front of the meter may be enough to free it up. It may, however, be an indication of a problem with the needle type bearing on either end of the shaft that supports the indicator or that the coiled indicator spring has broken.

SOURCE: swr meter not moving.
If the radio is working don't worry about the meter unless you absolutely want it. These little meters are not very accurate or reliable. Get an external SWR meter to check the antenna.

SOURCE: Cobra 29 SWR, cal meter
Rule of thumb is go by what the manual tells you. providing it is the manual that is for the radio.. that is why they make manuals for that particular radio a 1-1 to a 1-2 swr rating is really good providing you have no saturation on the internal filter. over saturation due to swr being set too high will eventually burn out the finals of a radio
i have delt with radio's for about 17 years now so i really suggest consult the users manual and always use only a authorized dealer for that particular radio just like my cobra 2000 i am not going to send it to a shop that just does radios i want a authorized cobra dealer ok i hope that this really helps ok please dont forget to give this solution a rate for me it helps me out so i can continue to help out others like yourself.

Sounds like a problem with your coax cable. You may not have the ends on the cable properly or the cable may have a kink or short in it somewhere. That is a sign of a very high SWR and usually means a short somewhere. If it is a mobile antenna make sure the little plastic washer on the antenna mount is installed properly. It is meant to insulate the antenna center conductor from the metal it is mounted to. It goes on top of the bracket and has a little raised collar on one side which should sit in the hole on the bracket.
