Re: problems

Hi searspc,

sounds like a power problem. Have you checked the inline fuses - maybe one of them is blown. How about the power lead have you checked to make sure there is power there for the unit. Easiest way to test the power is to go to K-Mart or Walmart and buy a 12volt Tester from the Car Section. There are a couple of different ones in Australia. The one with that is black in color with a wire out the back and a spike I have found to be very good and it gives a few different voltages. Hope this helps.

Radio transmits fine but the receive volume is way down. Can hardly hear it with volume turned up full.

If you have talk back in this radio.( you hear your self through the radio when you transmit) then its a good bet that the RX wire in the mic plug has broken off.

The mic switch is responsible for putting the radio into receive mode when you release the key. If the RX wire is broken, the radio will not go into receive.

Normally when this happens you have no receive at all no matter what, but you will have very low sound if you have talk back installed in the radio.

Because of this, if you have talk back in your radio, and the volume is faint even at full blast, its a good bet that its a broken RX wire in the mic cord or plug.

You can attempt to see if the break is at the mic plug. if it is, you can re solder it and it will solve your problem. If you have no clue, then you can just go buy new 4 pin mic.

Procedures to install cb antennae mount

The end without a connector was once attached to an antenna. You need a proper antenna in order to use the radio. If you were to buy a new antenna, it will come with a length of cable attached. Even if you were to buy a new antenna, don't expect good performance from the radio unless you get the antenna properly adjusted. Yes, it will work "out of the box", but probably not as good as it could. There is a device called an SWR bridge, it's used to measure the SWR and the user then adjusts the antenna for the lowest reading by trial and error adjustment of the antenna.

I'm Thinking About a CB Radio

Hello Donna,

I do a line by line reply to your questions:

Q) Do C B Radios work from electricity, too, or just from a vehicle?
A) You will need to buy a 12volt power supply to power the CB if you are using it in your home. Also you will have to have a house mounted antenna.

Statement) I don't know what brand of C B Radio to get. I'll need one with tech support.
Reply) For simplicity, I would suggest getting a Realistic brand CB from Radio Shack, they will also have the antenna and installation hardware (for home and vehicle) along with a SWR meter (you will need this, trust me). As for tech support well any brand you go with will be a problem in the area of tech support, most of the time you will have to find a CB shop or some that is CB savvy to act as your tech support.

I hope this helps

Car Radio

The FixYa site is all supported by volunteers answering the questions.

We are paid for the more technical problems, or people who want Immediate answers.

It sounds like the Stereo may have been wired to the car incorrectly.

If you have the model number, you can find the Users Manual on to check the wiring connections.

Best of Luck.
