    I have exactly the same problem - sound off, as if headphones connected , but they are not. I have even tried plugging and unplugging headphones in hopes that it would clear the problem but no go. Sometimes it clears just by hitting random buttons (and when it clears the red sp. off light goes off). I have also tried clearing the receivers memory (turn it off and turn it on holding down the power button for 7 seconds and it will go into a demonstration mode, but once you clear the demonstration mode there is still no sound).

    Wow! This guy will give you and inappropiate rate for just trying to help out, why didn`t you say you don`t have the headphones inserted, instead of shooting from the hip with a hot headed rating, OK well next time buy a higher end receiver and maybe you will not have a problem you have with the low budget Sony

I have no reciving in a cobra 29 ltd chrome

Bad switch. It's that simple. The factory switches are crimp together junk. You may be able to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to softly squeeze the case of the switch together to correct the poor contact in side of the switch, but, if it gets a lot of use you may need to replace it altogether. Or try adjusting
