The inner screws also need to be removed after you get the back panel off. Also, the antenna is connected with a nut to the case, and the antenna has a wire soldered to the board. They are kid of a trick to get into, but not impossible. Good Luck.

How to disassemble and reassemble

I believe this is one of those cases if you have to ask, then you likely shouldn't be taking the radio apart as there are no user serviceable parts inside. Having said that, there are usually four phillips screws holding the radio together.

Think looooooong and hard before you decide to disassemble it.

I left the batteries in it, and one of the batteries corroded. how can i take it apart to clean it

One old trick was to use some baking soda on terminals. It will turn terminal black, but you can still use it if terminal is not broken off. If you have soldered in batteries clean an scrape terminal an resolder.

Are there any modification to increase reception and Modulation for cobra 38wxst?

the person is talking about a cobra 38wxst and you guys give him information on a cobra 25,but the information is solid as to what is said Check your SWR ,Make sure your squelch is open,check for dust on the knobs , and then take it to a tech and let him fix it because a receive alignment is more sensitive then a tx alignment.

When docking the headset cobra road trip and activate the ptt who hear me get a ring

  • Hi, I can help. When the microphone/earphone set is inserted in the radio itself the control is automatically turned over to the headset. There are no radio adjustment that need to be done. Just plug it in and use the PTT on the cord of the headset or unplug and use the controls on the radio itself.

  • Many don't know that the Cobra Road Trip and the Cobra HH 38WXST are identical radios. The only difference is the antenna sold with the two radios. The one you have come with a rubber duck style antenna and the HH38 WXST comes with a magnetic car mount antenna. So while the manualfor the Road Trip is hard to find the 38 WXST is not. Here is a copy of the manual

  • Read through the manual a couple times and feel free to get back to me with any questions you have.

  • Hope this helps.

Dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled it apart right way and let it dry, can it be fixed


problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

Have a nice day.
