Info below taken from the users manual you can find it here

Auto Battery Save •
Your microTALK® radio has a unique circuit
designed to extend battery life. If there are no
transmissions within ten (10) seconds, the radio
will automatically switch to Battery Save mode
and the Power Saver icon will flash in the
display. This will not affect the radio’s ability
to receive incoming transmissions.

Roger Beep Confirmation Tone •
Your listener will hear an audible tone when you release the Talk
button. This alerts the other party that you are finished talking and
it is OK for them to speak. This feature can be turned On or Off.
To Turn Roger Beep On Or Off:

When turning On your microTALK® radio for
the first time, roger beep will be On.

1. Press the Mode button until the Roger Beep
icon flashes. The current On or Off setting is
2. Press the Channel Up or Channel Down
button to select roger beep On or Off.
3. Choose one (1) of the following:
a. Press the Mode button to enter the new
setting and return to Standby mode.
b. Press the Lock button to enter the new
setting and return to Standby mode.
The setting you select will be saved when you
turn your radio Off and On again. When the
roger beep is On, the Roger Beep icon will
be displayed.

I hope this helps your problem, or points you in the right direction, if so please give me a fixya rating, they really do help.

What does vox and rog. Stand for on the cobra microtalk

VOX is the abbreviation for Voice activated transmission, and ROG is likely the abbreviation for Roger Beep, which is a small beep or series of beeps at the end of a transmission that alerts the other person you are talking too that your transmission has ended. this is mostly used when signals are noisy, as the beeps are a sure sign that you have finished your transmission.

Cobra microTALK PR 3500-2 DX VP 2-Way

The Cobra microTALK PR-3500-2 DX VP Radios are supposed to be equipped with acoustic noise filters that are built in the microphone. This problem could have been caused from the radios getting wet, damaged, or the microphone going bad, the microphone can be replaced if you still have the warranty, but if you want to save money you may wan to get a new set of 2-ways. I suggest the Uniden GMR325-2, these models are inexpensive and have an approximate 5 mile range in good conditions.

Good Luck!

Hello horndog78,

Your radio may be locked. You can confirm this by looking for a icon of a padlock on the screen.

To toggle the lock on and off hold down the LOCK/MODE button for a full two seconds until you hear a double beep.

Best Regards,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Corba MicroTalk buttons not responding

This is an unfortunate situation. this normally happens when the radio CPU is damaged by water or some other factor. If this was a more expensive radio I would tell you to send it in to the factory but this type of radio is a low teer radio. Basicly a throw away.
