SOURCE: Brand New Cobra microtalk won't work!

Double check against all the instructions - in particular, make sure the batteries are charged according to "before first use" spec, that the volume is turned up, and that the squelch (if fitted and not automatic) is adjusted properly. If it still doesn't work, take it back to Wal-Mart. If the product doesn't work, there's no need for the packaging to be in good condition - it's not as if they'll be needing it to resell the goods to anybody else. A.

The Cobra microTALK PR-3500-2 DX VP Radios are supposed to be equipped with acoustic noise filters that are built in the microphone. This problem could have been caused from the radios getting wet, damaged, or the microphone going bad, the microphone can be replaced if you still have the warranty, but if you want to save money you may wan to get a new set of 2-ways. I suggest the Uniden GMR325-2, these models are inexpensive and have an approximate 5 mile range in good conditions.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: transmitting

Hello lstimpson,

You may have the CTCSS privacy code function enabled on one radio and not on the other. This function keeps your radio's received muted unless it receives a signal from another radio using the same privacy code. If you have Privacy Codes set for radio A but not for radio B you will still be able to transmit from A to B but when you transmit on radio B your signal will not be heard on radio A.

Make sure that both radios are set to the same privacy code or that the function is turned off on both radios.

Best Regards,
Ken

SOURCE: Constant RX mode on cobra microtalk PR3850WX

Sounds like the radio was subjected to electrostatic discharge. If you have your manual, and it describes a way to do a "master reset" on the radio, follow the instructions. This usually involves pushing down on one key while turning the radio on. Otherwise you have to find a licensed dealer for factory service, as there is no way to repair the radio yourself. The use of surface mount technology still confuses many Techs unless they have been to a company's two or three week seminars.

Check to see if you have "tone squelch" or CTCSS enabled. It will only receive transmissions from stations that are transmitting the tone your radio has selected.

What does vox and rog. Stand for on the cobra microtalk


VOX is the abbreviation for Voice activated transmission, and ROG is likely the abbreviation for Roger Beep, which is a small beep or series of beeps at the end of a transmission that alerts the other person you are talking too that your transmission has ended. this is mostly used when signals are noisy, as the beeps are a sure sign that you have finished your transmission.

Hello horndog78,

Your radio may be locked. You can confirm this by looking for a icon of a padlock on the screen.

To toggle the lock on and off hold down the LOCK/MODE button for a full two seconds until you hear a double beep.

Best Regards,
Ken
