Question about Cobra Radio Communications

Cobra 2000 NO RX AUDIO

I have a Cobra 2000. It has been in a box for a while, almost 10 years. I get it out and I have no audio. S-meter is moving, TX is fine, TX audio is fine, PA works, just no audio out of the speaker. What can I do? I really want it to work because the TX audio sounds beautiful and I remember how the audio sounded coming out of those speakers. I also have a meter stuck, the SWR meter is stuck. What can I do to fix it?

    Yes, I am still having problems. I have a little electronic knowledge. I do lots of projects, etc. I did read about the electrolytics going out on these and I have alot of electrolytics I could replace them with. It would be nice to know exactly which ones as I don't have a schematic or anything. As far as the meter, I have no clue.

Good day I have an cobra 148 Gtl tx and rx a working but no out put

It might not seem obvious but on many, if not all, current CB radios have separate wires coming from the microphone for RX and TX. It seems like the mic wire for TRANSMIT may be open. It is a common failure.

Radio quits after 15-30 seconds

without more detailed info, quick suggestion - thermal fault, if all TX audio works when in this fault condition, it may be fair to assume audio IC is ok and check electrolytic capacitors and dry joints.

Cobra 29, no rx, no tx, pa dose not work, good mic, good ext. speaker, mic. gain all the way up, and you can see meter in face neddle moveing it rec. just no audio at alland no modulation.

Not sure which model you have as there are at least 13 cobra 29's. I am using the LTD as an example. You say good mic? Is it made for this model? If it is good then I would have to say the final audio stage is not working. The TA72222AP is the IC that is the final audio amplifier. Check pin 1 of the TA72222AP ic for 12 volts. If 12 volts is present then replace the audio IC TA72222AP. If 12 volts is not present then you have power supply problems that are internal. The conclusion I have made is based on no rx audio, ( could have been the jack at the pa and ext spkr) but you say they don't work either, also no meter movement during modulation check (that does not need a spkr to make the meter move) so yes I'm 99.99% sure its the final audio stage is a bad. If your model is not the LTD then the IC could be different but still the same audio final is bad. Replace the part which should be fairly inexpensive. If it uses a metal heat sink be sure to apply heat sink grease when installing new part.

Could you please tell me what COLORS that i need to put where when wiring a Superstar DM 452 to a Galaxy Saturn base station radio?

Don't worry about colors. look a the mic switch connections. one wire will be a common ground for TX & RX the middle wire would be ground(pin1) the n/c side will be RX pin4 the N/O side will be TX.... the same for the audio element side, one will be ground and the other will be audio pin 2.. this works for any mic and any radio.

pin1 ground pin 2 audio, pin 3 TX, pin4 RX.. standard pin outs cobra / galaxy/connex exports

Red RX/TX and red ANT light on my CB

Well,first hand ,some cobra radio,s have red some have green RX/TX lights, but are you modulating? Some green lights turn red. What is your standing Wave on the antenna,s? You need to check it and the output of the radio. To do this you need a watt or field strenth meter. Can get one at Radio Shack. Your standing Wave is ok as long as it is below a 2. That has to be done on the antenna. ..hope this helps...

Codra 29 nw ltd classic

For the money,the Cobra 29 nw/st is just as good if not better than a Galaxy. Cobra is more durable by far. I have had 3 of these cobra's in the last 30 years. Only had to replace the last one because the tractor got hit by lightning.
Sure would not pay big money for a name.
