Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio
Yes I know the problem!! At one point the radio was pluged in backwards the positive prong touched the negative and vise versa and caused the Reverse Polairty Diode to pop inside the radio!! The only wat to fix this is ti have the radio taken to a Radio Tech and have the old bad part removed and a new good part put in!! The price of this fix varies from Tech. to Tech. depending on the C.B. shop!! e are a full line C.B. shop and we also do repairs. A repair like this some times will go around an average of 35.00. We would charge around 15.00 to fix it plus S+H if any one came to us for this problem!! oplease feel free to E-mail us with any other questions that you may have at" email@example.com We hope this helps

Testimonial: "feedback was very helpful i have had 4 people tell me the radio is wasnt any good and that it was junk thanks"
Actually, the original diode is a 1N4004, but 1N4007 will work fine . It is in a tight spot just under where the power enters the radio, behind a large 1000uf cap . Use solder wick to remove the old diode . Make certain that the new diode is placed so that the stripe / band is in the same direction as original, or as indicated on the board . Solder her in, and your on the air ! J

Just remove the old diode and replace with a 1N4007. Cost about $0.05.
