Re: troubleshooting?

You could peak and tweek it to a legal limit. A local CB Shop should be able to help if they do repairs. Good Luck

The problem may be in the audio output chip mounted on the chassis, also! there is also a small capacitor located next to the audio chip that has known to be a problem, finally sub the speaker for another, often a source of trouble.

Cx80, what does the code "rx" mean on the display

  • TX = Transmit. RX = Receive. Does your needle move when you key the mic? Does it modulate when you talk in the mic? Do you have an inline watt/SWR meter inline? What kind of a set up do you have? Mobile? Base? Get back to me if you want further help.

There is no output when transmitting the radio says rf power output fail on the radio check

You can try to replace the final transistor and see if that helps. Do you have receive? Plug an external speaker into the PA and switch the CB to PA and key down. If you hear yourself that eliminates the voice chip. Always make sure you check your SWR and maintain below 1:1.5 no higher than 2. Any further questions of comments let me know.

No audio Transmit

Try a hand mic with the set, there may be a short within the radio.If not your problem is with the audio amp in the radio itself.Repair should be about $15.00.

Static noise in my cb radio

A lot of times the "static" Is actually a loos connection in the microphone or a dirty micke gain control. Radio shack sells a cheap tuner cleaner if you know how to take the covers of and find the mic gain control, spray it in the little slot in the control( be generous) move the knob back anf forth several times. Also if you have another mike wired for cobra, try it and see if it helps. Those two solutions fix 98 percent of the problems. If it doesn't, please let me know. I am very good with cobra radioes and am sure we can solve this problem.
Good Luck. If this so;ution helps, please rate me.

I have no reciving in a cobra 29 ltd chrome

Bad switch. It's that simple. The factory switches are crimp together junk. You may be able to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to softly squeeze the case of the switch together to correct the poor contact in side of the switch, but, if it gets a lot of use you may need to replace it altogether. Or try adjusting
