Hi Sheila,

Are these new? if so take them back to the place of purchase with your receipt as proof, and I'm sure the people there will find a solution for you.

If, on the other hand these are out of warranty, then buy rechargeable Lithium batteries, and your problems are solved, they cost a little more, but that's because they're the best.

Cheers,
Peter

SOURCE: Brand New Cobra microtalk won't work!

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.

SOURCE: Constant RX mode on cobra microtalk PR3850WX

Sounds like the radio was subjected to electrostatic discharge. If you have your manual, and it describes a way to do a "master reset" on the radio, follow the instructions. This usually involves pushing down on one key while turning the radio on. Otherwise you have to find a licensed dealer for factory service, as there is no way to repair the radio yourself. The use of surface mount technology still confuses many Techs unless they have been to a company's two or three week seminars.

SOURCE: cant charge

first confirm the battery is in properly. then your charger should have an output equal to your battery power, e.g. if the battery is 3.6 v make sure your charger is at least putting out that. make sure the contacts on your charger are making contact on your radio.

pull the batteries out, slam them ******* a solid surface. put 'em in, let 'em charge. if that doesn't bring 'em back buy new bats.also, use a voltmeter to make sure the charger was getting voltage.
Good luck!

Need instruction manual for cobra microtalk


The manual for the Cobra microTalk PR190-2 is available from the Cobra site. The direct link to the PDF is: https://www.cobra.com/downloads/manuals/PR190_MANL.pdf . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: https://www.cobra.com/pages/manuals.cfm and scroll down in the Two-Way Radio section.

I hope this helps.

I have a headphone/microphone that isnt cobra brand and fits into the cobra cxt175, but wont work. Will it work or do i need cobra brand?


Its probably wired different than Cobra like Microphones are. If you tamper with wires you may try combinations and it may work. Otherwise, best to buy Cobra replacement.

I just put new batteries in my Cobra microtalk PR 3500 DX battery charger. How long will it take to charge them? Should the Radio's be in the on or off position. Thank You mjbarry42@comcast.net Mike...


The radios will work fine while being charged, but they will charge faster if turned off. Normal charging time is 8-10 hours, but I would recommend an overnight charge - they won't overcharge or be damaged by the longer charge time.

Microtalks don't seem to charge, even charged many hours


When you say they worked fine for a long time, do you mean a long time as in "hours", or for many months or years? If hours, then remove the batteries and be sure they are in correctly and plug the charger into a different electrical outlet. If the radios have not been used for many months or longer, you probably need to replace the rechargeable battery.

Microtalks won't charge


I have the Cobra Microtalk 4100 FRS radios with charging base. After changing the batteries with new nimh rechargables the charge light would not illuminate and the unit would not charge. I noticed the original batteries had a metal band around one end. This band makes a small connection inside the battery compartment on the first battery. Seems to be a cheap way to ensure you dont try to recharge the unit with non-rechargable batteries installed. I rapped a small piece of tinfoil around one end of the first battery in the new set then popped it back in and now they will charge correctly again. Dont try this with non-rechargable batteries! I would recomend buying original replacement batteries.
