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.

Because of the low battery, the radio is programed only to recieved but not to transmit due of the luck of energy. Once the battery is fully charged you can easy change the RX mode by pressing on the "light/max range" button.

Hope this helps!

One of my Cobra Microtalk radios is stuck on RX. Everything else seems to work. What could be the problem?


Hi!

Almost always, the problem here is that the micro switch for the Push-to-Talk (PTT) button has failed. Your radio should have a warranty, but even if the warranty has run out, it isn't horribly spendy to fix. I'd get in touch with Cobra Electronics, I have heard they're extremely helpful. Try this link and good luck!

What does the "RX" mean on the display? How do


RX means that the radio is receiving a signal, this will put most of the cobra 2-ways into a locked state. many of the cobra models have an issue were after a bit of use, they will seem to receive a "mystery signal" sometimes, carefully taking the radio apart and cleaning out the inside with canned air will help, you may also check the terminals that the batteries connect too, otherwise the SoC (system on a chip microcontroller) likely has an issue.

One of my walkie talkie has an RX on the display and you can send but you cannot hear the other person. How can I remove the RX as that seems to be the only difference in them. Thank you


depending on what radio you have, they are programmed in different ways, rx means recieve signal

and tx means transmit signal, if you have a mode button, you will have to scroll through it until you

get to the menu that allows you to change the radio transmission. it looks like that radio is only

programmed to receive signals and not transmit. good luck!

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.

Cobra PR3850WX will not recharge batteries


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.
