Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio
My Cobra comes on good at first but then doesn't transmit or receive after about 5min. The weather band still works and all her lights work. If I turn it off and on again, nothing happens. But if she sits for a while with the power supply on, it's like she's "charging". Then she'll give me another 5min. Tried other mics and I'm stumped.Any ideas? Any help would be sweet! Thanks!!!
SOUNDS LIKE A COLD SOLDER JOINT OR A BAD COMPONENT WHEN IT WARMS UP THATS WHEN IT STARTS ..TAKE OFF THE COVER SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE SOLDER SIDE OF THE BOARD PUT POWER TO THE RADIO AND WHEN IT WARMS UP AND SHUTS DOWN TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF WOOD OR PLASTIC AND PROBE ALL THE SOLDER CONNECTIONS TO CHECK FOR A COLD SOLDER JOINT IT MAY BE GRAY IN COLOR MAY NOT.. SEE IF IT GOES ON AND OFF.. IF SO RESOLDER THAT SOLDER JOINT.......IF THIS DOES NOT WORK ....PICK UP SOME FREEZE SPRAY AND SPRAY IT ON THE COMPONENT'S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BOARD THIS IS WHAT A SERVICE PLACE WILL DO IF THAT DOES NOT WORK NOW BRING IT TO A SERVICE AND LET THEM SCRATCH THERE HEAD GOOD LUCK
