Midland 75-785 handheld cb gets hot to the touch when used

Have tried it with fresh batteries and also the cigarette adaptor cord that came with the radio. after 4-5 minutes I have to turn it off and let it set and cool off, it's to hot to hold in a bare hand.

Buy a magnetic mount CB antenna ($35.00 for a K30 magnet mount cb antenna) and put it on the fridge, or microwave, or a appliance thats heavy in metal (gives good ground) and it'll work fine. A base antenna will be even better though. for antenna's and radios

Midland 75 785 noise problem

change channels maybe it will go away. How is you power hooked up? does it go to the fuse box ,cigarette lighter or directly to the battery? Try hooking the power up differently .If that doesn't work try asking a friend to hook it up in their vehicle to see if it still does it. once you find the problem then install it. Could the nb/anl switch be in the off position ? Good luck.

I have a Midland 75-822 that I run off adapter power all the time. How do I turn off the battery save function? With it pulsing the power on and off I miss the firt syllable when someone transmits.

  • Their is no power save mode on this CB in the terms I think your thinking of. There is a high and low power that deals with how much power the CB puts out when transmitting that will make your battery last longer but this would have no bearing on the issue you are having.

  • If you are using a power cord all the time then remove the batteries from the CB until you need them. There are two thumb clips you pull down on and pop the compartments off (one is for rechargeable and one is for regular Alkaline batteries).

  • If the CB is actually powering on and off you have a power feed issue such as a bad connection, a failing power feed socket, a weak inline fuse on the power cord about to blow or something internal is malfunctioning.

  • Hope this helps.

I have a Midland CB Car with no mike or a car power pluge, the model # is 70 - 336B and the serial # is 760408

Your midland CB will use a standard 4 pin wired CB plug which is most common for most mics sold today. Your power cord will be a standard 3 pin CB power cord which again is most common with CB's today. You need not purchase a "radio specific" cord or mic. Cobra, Uniden, Midland all the same mic pin out and power cords. Good luck.

New hand held Midland CB Model #75-785 that will not transmit

Try asking any onrt CB'ers if they can hear you at all.

Could be 2 things -

#1 - you are really too close.

#2 - you've blown the output stage of your rig by keying the mic without an aerial fitted.
- This is very common, and most repair centres are used to dealing with this.
If you are up to electronic repair, it's possible to DIY repair.
Could also be an antenna mismatch or fault.

Given the fact that when you key up the mic you should not hear any thing because the receiver section is "turned off" (no antenna and the speaker is muted). This would seem to indicate that the switch the headset controls which allow the change over from RX to Tx is bad or that the circuit in the CB unit which the head set plugs into is having a problem. Do you hear the same flutter without the headset? Try to get another headset or test one out just to see if the problem is eliminated by using a known good headset.
