Question about Cobra 29 WX NW ST 40-Channels Base CB Radio
The inline fuse is not blown but, previously would blow. wont turn on and is plugged in/
The most likely thing is what we techs call revers polarity. this means that the customer accedently hook up the power in reverse. this happens more often then not. The fix for this is to replace the 1 amp diode that goes between the negative and positive power input on the board. the Diode number is a 1N4007 or any 1amp silicone diode. You will also see that once Blown diode is cut the radio will come back on. this does not mean the radio is fixed what this means is that the shorted diode has been removed from the circuit. which also means the radio has nom protection until the diode is replaced.
