Question about Radio Communications
I have a pair of Cobra PR3850WX handhelds that will not recharge batteries when placed in charger, nor will the led on charger light up. Checked charger with volt meter and it showed 12v, also placed a discharged 9v battery across charger contacts, the led light came on and battery showed a gain in charge from 2v to 7v in about 2 min. Can you help?
There is a contact in the upper left hand corner of the batt compartment.This has to touch the metal of the last batt.If your batts have paper around them scrape it off where it contacts that contact point.

I have had this issue before. The contacts on your radio may not making sufficient contact. I would clean them thoroughly, maybe rub them with something abrasive (fine sand paper) Is there any measurable charge in the battery's?
