RCI 2980 power adjust problem

I have a problem with the low power adjustment not adjusting. The high will. The radio works fine other than that but cannot use the rf power adjustment. I can bring the power [watts] down to 3 watts or so with the high and thats all. This radio was picked up fairly cheap and someone has had their golden screwdriver in it. have fixed several other problems. Are the adjustments the same as a 2980wx. Can't find a lot of info on this radio. I have vr 13 as high vr 16 low vr 14 mod adj. would appreciate any help.

VR16 is not the low power adjustment, it's the CW Tone.
As far as I can tell, there is no low power adjust.
Try a different resistance pot for the RF Power.

Make sure the output of the AC to DC power suppy inside the radio is between 12 and 14.4v, and hasn't been cranked up to 16v in the screwdriver expert's quest to put mo' axe in their co-ax.

Most probably, someone has removed a resistor or something on the main board in the never-ending quest for more wattage or modulation, and now the radio is out of alignment...

The main circuit board is a EPT 3600. The adjustments are the same as a 33 HML Galaxy. I have an RCI 2980 and have used these schematics to tune my cb with. Hope this will be of help.

How to connect to a Samsung tv


If you have Samsung wireless and need to pair them, then select sound, addition setting arrow down to Bluetooth ( may not be visible until you arrow down). Follow those instructions.
below this you will find how I set up old headphones.
I have a Samsung SU 4K, I also have an old wireless head phones. I did not want to buy expensive Bluetooth.
how did I make these work. First I purchased a digital optical convertor for $20. Since my headphones are 2 channel, I connected the base (red/white) to the convertor. Then I had to access Samsung menu audio. The Samsung TV has the manual built into TV terrible. Since I did not want the TV speakers off I had to find how to enable the output to headphones base. Select sound from menu , then additional settings , set audio format to PCM, also HDMI to PCM.

Why does the myzone headset we purchased not work, as the red light will not turn on?


Not sure how old this unit is but you need to check your battery connections for crud.

If the battery's have been leaking or the terminals are corroded it will not power up. I beleave that unit takes rechargeable batterys.

My headphones will turn on or charge.


Try performing a system reset: While plugging in the AC charger, hold the power/pair button. The headphones will show a solid red or blue light when they have been successfully reset. If it's still giving you problems, contact your retailer for warranty replacement (1 year warranty) or call Plantronics at 800-544-4660 x5 x5538 for warranty service.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Motorola S805 headset worked fine with T60 laptop


Solution I found with the same devices is to properly par the devices.

Refer http://direct.motorola.com/ens/s805/QuickstartGuide.pdf

It basically states :

1.Ensure the headphones are turned off (L indicator light not blinking).
2.Press and hold L button. After about 6 seconds, the L indicator light becomes steadily lit.
3.Release the L button. The L indicator light remains steadily lit.

If the L indicator light is flashing or not steadily lit, repeat steps 1 through 3

Now on the T60:

Search for Bluetooth Devices as you would normally.
The T60 lists Bluetooth devices it finds.
Select Motorola S805.
Select OK or Yes to pair your headphones
with your phone.
Enter the passkey: 0000
Select OK.
When your headphones successfully pair
with your phone, the L indicator light
changes from steadily lit to rapidly flashing.

That's it next time you start a audio program on T60 output will be sent to Motorola Headphones

HEADPHONES AND SPEAKERS Hi There Try this, VOLUME Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one. CLEANING Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion. WIRELESS\BLUETOOTH Check your battery if it is drained. Try replacing them witha new one or charge them if they are rechargables. If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement. If its working then your Speakers or Headphones are defective. Try fixing them by cleaning or checking the Continuity of its cables using a analog Multi tester. Hope This helps =============================================== If you are having trouble with a Newly bought items then return them a demand a replacement or a refund!You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.
