Initially, pls check/clean your antenna, mount, coaxial cable, RF connector, power leads, grounding straps.

Based on your post description, a couple of ideas:
1. Since you receive OK, chances are the antenna/cable is good. You verify though with an SWR meter;
2. Since TX light comes on, looks like the mic, PTT and coiled cord are all OK;
3. All else works but no one can hear you, you have no power output. Use an RF wattmeter with dummy load to verify that you are pushing at least 25 watts. In the absence of a power meter, the SWR would also do or even an indication of a significant current flow to the radio ( use an inline ammeter) would indicate power.
As you will note, some specialized instruments are needed. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified communications technician. TMore often it is the finals or power pack that fails resulting in no TX. In some cases, it is either the RF diode or the power regulator that causes no TX. It may also be worth your while to do a full check over of your antenna system.

Hope this be of some help. Pls post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Receives,no Tx

Many possibilities:
1: The radio took a hit and broke the PCB or the connection to the RF out jack.
2: Some other PCB joint failure
3: The RF output IC is toast
4: The driver is toast
5: The tx oscillator is so far out of whack it cannot develop the frequency it is set to.
6: You have a bad cable or antenna connector
7: You have a bad battery, battery contact or power connection
8: You have a power supply or other problem

Your radio is either stuck in VOX mode, or has a bad PTT button. Sometimes when using an audio device a radio will stick in Tx if the device is plugged in while the radio is turned on. When using any remote mic, earpiece, headset, or audio device be certain the radio is turned off when plugging or unplugging the device.

If no audio device is being used, the next possibility is a sticky or bad PTT button. This can sometimes be just the external button sticking, or it can be the internal button has simply worn out from repeated use.

One final thought, if your radio has programmable VOX, check to see if your programming is correct. VOX features when turned on make the radio Tx when it hears any sound, a voice or ambient noise can cause the radio to transmit.

Best regards.

Uniden pc68xl does not tx or rx. all lights comes on. I have no schematics to work with.

Try to change a 1k resistor R6(I believe) near back of radio. If not, try to change Final. Maybe small transistors near center back to back of radio. If you're not experienced take it to a Radio shop. Sorry i don't have much on this problem.

Uniden Oceanus not transmitting

You may have a sub-channel/privacy channel activated. Unless the person/s you are trying to talk to have the same channel and code set they will not be able to hear you. Check your manual for specific instructions on how to reset it to the default.

Transmit buton


Yes as long as the features and pin configuration of the connectors are the same. In its simplest form, the microphone/cable would only be carrying 3 wires; transmit audio, PTT to TX and ground. Of course others would have for the different switches, keys and other features (if present in your model).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
