Pressing the sync button whilst holding the mic close to the IR unit on the receiver should sync things back up. If this has already been done things to try next are as follows.
RF Mute. Press and release the power button. RF Mute should be displayed. Press the roccker switch and select RF mute OFF, press the rocker switch again.
Check in the advanced menu that the pilot tone is on on the handheld AND the receiver.
Is this new mic wired for your radio? just because it fits the socket doesnt mean its right. Did the old mic do the same thing reason why you got the new one? just sounds more like a loose wire at the jack where the mic plugs in? has that connector ever been loose or needed tightened at any time?
Hi cordless mics consist of the following parts: mic capsule- audio and copression amp- Xtall and RF section. In your case RF is ok. Test mic capsule ( using an audio amp or simply connect it momentarily to a 1.5 vollt battery and listen for a "khesh" noise from your capsule. If your mic capsule is ok your amp and compressor section is either damaged due to a reverse battery connection or you have " cold solder joints" on or around the audio amp.

You need to check that they are both operating on different channels there should be a switch or POT on the microphone and possibly one on the reciever. If they are static or preset you need to swap one for the other channel. Some (usualy cheap) mics have a preset or static channel often ch-A and ch-B, there should be one of each in the box. If you bought the extra body packs they will also come with the preset channels. - thegorisb
Is the meter moving on key up or another radio transmiting to it? Switch for S/RF, CAL, SWR.........set to S/RFRF gain knob full clockwiseSquelch counter clockwise If just audio is missing my be Audio Chip i think IC3Bad Crystal or solder to it.May be bad PLL chip any of these 3 could affect both TX and RXI do not suspect mic as there would still be audio just at low volume on receive.
Assuming you don't have the manual,basic controls for receive are to make sure the switch next to the meter is set to s/rf,switch for cb/pa is set cb,knob for rf gain is at max, squelch knob is fully counterclockwise..squelch can be adjusted if ya don't want to hear static but will start cutting out weaker signals.If none of the above works,try plugging in an external speaker to the jack on the back of the radio,if ya still don't hear anything,check that antenna coax is screwed in tightly in back of the radio.Next step after all that would be the microphone,is the stock mic,power mic..if it is the original stock mic that has not been rewired in any,then I would suggest taking radio to qualified cb repair shop,bring mic with you to shop so they can check it too,in fact I would bring the truck also so they can check antenna and adjust it if needed...Good luck
The meter will be more accurate and an external meter will be even better. If they show good disregard the ant light it is adjustable. It may have been set to sensitive from factory.
These erroneous SWR reading can be the side effects of a PEAK & TUNE if the coils have been spread but that should also show on meter.
SWR meter calibrations
Switch (S/RF SWR CAL) to the CAL position.
Push and hold mic button
While holding mic button adjust the SWR CAL knob so the meter needle swings to the CAL mark on the meter
While still holding down the mic button, set the (S/RF SWR CAL) switch to the SWR position, to read the SWR reading. Note: When switched to SWR position the meter needle should ideally be as far to the left as possible. Anything over 3 is not acceptable.
