Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
I hooked up the power leads properly. When I hooked up the negative wire, it sparked. Now the radio doesn't work at all. A friend of mine had the same thing happen to him with a different radio. Is there something we are doing wrong? Also do you think the radios can be repaired?
The most common problem is the inline fuse. If it is not the fuse you probably blew the polarity protection diodes, d23 + d28. Go to radio shack and get 2 1n4001's and replace them.

It,s the mounting the screws are touching something in the radio when bracketed and yes you probably blew the power diode in the radio, it can be fixed pretty easily. Try a fuse on the ground and the hot next time.
