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.



    Thanks.

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.

Radio comes on will not talk or recieve


Is the meter moving on key up or another radio transmiting to it?
Switch for S/RF, CAL, SWR.........set to S/RFRF gain knob full clockwiseSquelch counter clockwise
If just audio is missing my be Audio Chip i think IC3Bad Crystal or solder to it.May be bad PLL chip any of these 3 could affect both TX and RXI do not suspect mic as there would still be audio just at low volume on receive.

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.

Cobra 18 wx st receives-wont transmit


Take the cover off, flip it over solder side up, check all solder joints for cracks, cold solder joints, check the safety diode where it comes in the radio, before I go further, can you pick up the weather channel?...Does the PA work?...need to check the pre-driver and finals,audio chip, hook up the power meter using a coax three foot jumper from the output from radio to the input of the watt meter, then the antenna, first check the SWR, on the scale on the meter to cal/swr mode,adjust it to spec, then while still keyed down turn the dial to SWR,if it is the safe range your ok,then turn the Dial to 10 or 20 watt scale and key the mic. Does it have any wattage? If not suspect the finals, they are located on the back rail, if it does have RF then its the audio chip, its located on the right side rail facing you,closest to you.remove it and replace it with same ....hope this helps....

I have a cobra 25 ltd and when i key the mic the gauge of the db barley goes up. is something wrong ? also the gauge says its measuring tx power what does that actually mean/ do


TX means transmit. There are 3 settings for the meter. The top one is to measure your TX/RX that's transmit and receive. CAL is to calibrate the meter to check your SWR.

Reasons your needle may not be moving much when you key while on TX/RX. The dynamic is probably all the way down. That is your mic gain. If you turn that up when you talk the needle will swing more. If the radio is stock and not modded, you can turn this all the way up and leave it.

Also there could be something wrong with the mic. If people can hear you then its not the mic.

If people can hear you fine when you transmit, it may just be a bad meter. Not a big problem, you will just need an external meter to make sure you swr is not high.this is important because if it is over 1.5 you run the risk of blowing the final transistor.

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.
