Cobra PR4750WX - how do I adjust squelch?

I've had these radios for a couple years and in some areas the squelch just screeches horribly. Since it does not use a manual knob for adjustment, I don't know ho to adjust it's sensitivity. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

You are right there is no adjustment. You can however turn the squelch off and this maybe what is happening to you.
To turn the squelch off you press and hold the button that is just below the push-to-talk button for at least 5 seconds.
To turn the squelch back on, you either press (less than 5 sec.) and the same button or change channels.
When talking with a specific party or group, you should use the tone coded squelch (CTCSS) and that will mitigate the noise if you are not already doing that.

The CTCSS and DCS when activated will do nothing for the squelch if it is turned on, you will still hear the squelch as I just tried it, I am having issues however with one radio not always ringing thru when the call button is pressed from another radio, the other two radio receive the call but this one is just silent.

Squelch won't turn off, won't go into power save mode


Power-save mode means the radio is being turned on and off repeatedly, to save power. The radio turns on, & if it hears any signals (i.e., if squelch circuit determines a station is being received), it turns on the speaker; else it turns off again to save power. So, squelch and power-save modes work hand-in-hand, and your problem is squelch circuit is either set too low, or a station is being received by the receiver. Download/look at the owner's manual and adjust the squelch circuit for a higher setting, and it should go into power-save mode again.
Good luck.

Cobra 75 wx st


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls a couple of ideas you may want to consider/explore or try/check:
  • PA/CB switch must be to CB;
  • RF Gain max clockwise;
  • Squelch counter clockwise;
  • Volume to your desired level;
  • Mute (off);
  • external speaker/speaker connection;
  • audio amp, verify if there is TX modulation;
  • antenna, antenna cable. SWR should be low.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate this at all. Cheers.

Squelch doesnt work


Open the component / speaker side cover on the radio, adjust VR3, this is the alignment control for the squelch. Set your squelch control knob on the front of the radio to about 10 o'clock and slowly adjust VR3 until the signal from the speaker is mute.

When you turn the squelch back to the 0 position, you should have signal with no squelch as in normal operation.

Thanks!

Horrible Noise


It may be a cold solder joint on one of the stand up boards. Check all your connections and solder any bad joints.
