Re: GMR1035-2


The RX symbol and static noise would only appear if the squelch is down or if you are receiving something from a transmitter.

Receiving something could mean either an intelligent radio transmission from another comparable unit or this could also be spillover signals from adjacent radio transmitters strong enough to override the squelch settings normally called "splatter". At times, electronic devices could cause this effect such as RFI (radio frequency interference) from units such as a personal computer.

It is also possible that your Monitor Mode is "ON", turning it OFF would possibly resolve the issue To turn OFF monitor mode:Press the vol/mon UP or DOWN key. The RX icon will stop blinking and disappears.

In some cases, a component failure would cause this problem. Your GMR1035-2 uses an Automatic Squelch Feature, this would mean the use of a FM Discriminator Chip for Squelch Control. Most manufacturers uses an MC3357P IC chip for this purpose. This of course would require opening the unit, desoldering the suspected component and solder in a replacement. This would further require that you be familiar with electronic components, circuitry, DVM and a low wattage soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable doing this, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Static noise rx

Check your batteries. Static can be a sign of a bad or low battery. Swap batteries between the units to see if the problem moves to another radio.
Also, check your antenna and antenna connection.
Best regards.

How do i stop the intermittent static?!

Static can be caused by a poorly charged or bad battery. Try cleaning your battery contacts with a pencil eraser, on the battery, radio, and charger. Then recharge the batteries and see if the problem still exists. If so, try a battery from a known good unit and see if it stops the static.

If the battery is not the issue, you could simply have environmental noise. RF (radio frequency wave) in the environment is a common problem in urban areas. If you are using the radios in or around computers and other electronic devices, coil the cords to these devices and make them tidy. RF noise can be emitted through the cord like it is an antenna of sorts. Coiling will reduce this effect.

If your radios have PL capability, aka private line code, interference eliminator, turn it on, or change the setting. This should block out unwanted noise and interference.

Best regards.

How to get rid of static

Your radio allows you to listen for weak signals on

the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON the Monitor Mode:

• For brief listening, press MON button. The RX

icon blinks.

• Press and hold MON button for 2 seconds until

two beeps sound for continuous listening. The

receiver circuit stays open, letting both the noise

and weak signals to be heard.

To turn OFF Monitor Mode:

Press MON button to return to "Normal" mode,
and the RX icon stops blinking and disappears.

How do I deactivate the RX feature on this radio? Too much static.

What you want to do is tighten up the squelch adjustment and that should reduce the white noise you are hearing. also keep them away from any computers, the square waves generated by them will open up your squelch annoyingly as well.

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.

I get static after someone else talks

One of the main causes of static can be a bad battery. If you are using rechargeable batteries you need to replace them every 14-18 months. If you are using alkaline batteries, they have been known not to fully power the radio once your cross the 10 hour mark. Your radio would then be operating in somewhat of a brown out. This would lead to static.

Another cause of static is simply being nearly out of range of the other radio(s).

The burst of white noise at the end of Rx on some radios can be rather annoying. On the basic talkabout radios there is nothing which can be done to solve the problem, other than replacing the radio.

Constant RX mode on Cobra Microtalk Walke Talke

I have the same walkie talkies and on mine I can hold down the mode/lock button and it will come off of the Rx mode. Also, you should be able to press the talk button and it will come off of the Rx mode.

My Binatone Marina 300 Walkie talkies give hiss & noise. Pressing menue and up or menu alone makes no difference. How can I have a quiet radio except when called?

Hello andy300,

Does the "RX" indicator show on the LCD screen constantly?

This radio does have a monitor function which disables the squelch control, allowing the user to listen to weak signals on the channel. Enabling this function in absence of any signals will cause the user to hear any background static or noise on the channel. You enable this function by pressing Menu + Up at the same time and disable the function by pressing Menu.

I assume that you are familiar with this function from the fact that you mention these keystrokes have no affect on the radio's behavior.

It is possible that the area you are using the radios in / channel you are using them on has a very high noise level. If the noise level is higher then the radio's automatic squelch threshold, then you would hear constant static, hiss, or white noise and the receive ("RX") indicator would show a constant signal. A local noise level can be caused by atmospheric conditions or very busy nearby adjacent-channel radio signals.

Try operating the radios on a different channel and see if that helps. If it is practical, you might try operating the radios in a different local area just to see if that has any effect at all. This would help you determine if the problem was a local one specific to the area you are operating in.

If it is local area related you might consider switching to a different model of radio that includes a Continuous Coded Squelch System (CTCSS) function (called "privacy codes" or "quiet tones" by come manufacturers. This function does not appear to be included in the model you are using and can help keep your radios silent unless you receive a call from another radio using the exact same privacy code.

If the problem persists regardless of channel or area, then you might have a problem with the radio that would require factory service.

Hope this helps. Best regards!
