Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio

Replacing The Cobra 29 Nightwatch Illumination Panel

The illumination panel on my Cobra 29 NW LTD stopped working and every CB repair tech keeps telling me it's cheaper to buy a new radio than try to repair/replace the defective part. I've invested a considerable amount of money in modifications and like it's performance and would rather fix the illumination panel than trash the radio. Any ideas on getting the parts to repair it

    Most radios do not have this option anyway. I would not spend the $50 to $90 to replace the bezel. NW fails are common with age of the radio.

YOU CAN ORDER THAT PART FROM COBRA ELECTRONICS ON THE INTERNET YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE FACEPLATE AND UN HOOK THE DRIVET INSIDE THE RADIO IT LOOKS LIKE A SMALL RIBBON CABLE THAT GOES TO THE FACEPLATE. SOME TIMES THE DRIVER ITSELF IS THE PROBLEM. MANY SHOPS JUST DO NOT WANT TO FIX THEM BUT I DO.

Start with the antenna that you have hooked to it, is it grounded, is the coax in good shape, is the connector in good shape. stuff like that.

Dear RobertTx,

Sounds like you may have a leaky or shorted capacitor somewhere in the power circuits, or a defective transistor in the same circuits since it affects both the transmitter and receiver.
Common problems with receive and transmit intermittance can also be the antenna or its connections. The fact that it goes away if the radio is turned off, then on again after a short time points to something common in the power supply section. Unless you have test equipment and a working knowledge of electronics it will be difficult for you to troubleshoot on your own.
