Re: cobra pr250 2 way radios


Pls verify that both radios are:
1. within range of each other;
2. channel selection is identical;
3. CTCSS Privacy Code is identical;
4. Call Tone is identical;
5. Receive icon appears when the other radio's PTT is pressed;
6. Auto Squelch/Max Range is set to receive even weak signals.
Please correct settings if needed.

In some cases, it is the internal speakers that goes bad.

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

Good luck and kind regards.

What does the "RX" mean on the display? How do

RX means that the radio is receiving a signal, this will put most of the cobra 2-ways into a locked state. many of the cobra models have an issue were after a bit of use, they will seem to receive a "mystery signal" sometimes, carefully taking the radio apart and cleaning out the inside with canned air will help, you may also check the terminals that the batteries connect too, otherwise the SoC (system on a chip microcontroller) likely has an issue.

I have the cobra micro talk with rechargeable batteries my workers plug them up every night and get them in the morning but some arestill saying low battery, does the walkie talkie need to be turned off...

they charge better if they are turned off. since they do not have a paid dedicated channel, signals can

still be received by any walkie talkie using the same channel, and can deplete the charging process

to the radio. good luck!

I have 4 radios. Initially they all worked together. Now , een on the ame frequency , they do not all pick up the signal? Any ideas why?

These are FRS/GMRS radios. You may have different privacy codes set on the radios. If a receiving radio has a different privacy code than a transmitting radio, you will not hear the transmission. This allows many people to share the 22 channels, but only hear transmission from their party.

One of my walkie talkie has an RX on the display and you can send but you cannot hear the other person. How can I remove the RX as that seems to be the only difference in them. Thank you

depending on what radio you have, they are programmed in different ways, rx means recieve signal

and tx means transmit signal, if you have a mode button, you will have to scroll through it until you

get to the menu that allows you to change the radio transmission. it looks like that radio is only

programmed to receive signals and not transmit. good luck!

Hello lstimpson,

You may have the CTCSS privacy code function enabled on one radio and not on the other. This function keeps your radio's received muted unless it receives a signal from another radio using the same privacy code. If you have Privacy Codes set for radio A but not for radio B you will still be able to transmit from A to B but when you transmit on radio B your signal will not be heard on radio A.

Make sure that both radios are set to the same privacy code or that the function is turned off on both radios.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."

Constant RX mode on Cobra Microtalk Walke Talke

I have the same walkie talkies and on mine I can hold down the mode/lock button and it will come off of the Rx mode. Also, you should be able to press the talk button and it will come off of the Rx mode.

Batteries won't charge on new cobra 2VP 270 radios

If radios are brand new then I would take them back to the store for warranty exchange. The other opton is to vist a local radio service center and ask the tech to jump the battery. if the battery falls below a certain voltage it might need a quick jump sart from a power supply with a higher voltage normally 12 volts works well...

Long range mode


For the Cobra PR4700WX:
The user's manual is available here
To turn on/off the long range mode - (If you are referring to low & high power); Press and hold the Hi•Low/Enter button for two seconds.
Alternately, if you are referring to the Light/Max Range (receive sensitivity), 3 options:
1. To briefly turn off auto squelch - Press the Light/Max Range button for less than five seconds. If you hear two beeps, you have turned the maximum range extender on.
2. To turn maximum range extender on - Press and hold the Light/Max Range button for at least five seconds until you hear
two beeps which indicates the maximum range extender is on.
3. To turn maximum range extender off - Press and release the Light/Max Range button or change channels.
Probable reason that "fishing was all right but for hunting there is to much static" is becasue these radios operate on line of sight principle. Anything that obstructs the linear view would reduce signal strength/range. There is not that much obstruction when fishing compared to that when hunting in the woods or rough uneven terrain.
Please note that when using Channels 1 through 7 and 15 through 22 on high power, the Hi icon will be visible on the display. When using those channels on low power and on Channels 8 through 14, the Low icon will be visible on the display.

For the Cobra PR3500DX:
The user's manual is available here.
The transmission message icon off when not in use - this icon will only display if the radio is receiving something or if your are pressing the PTT button.
The other three the transmission signal is on at all times - indicates that either you are transmitting (unlikely) or the radio is in constant receive mode (most likely). I would venture a guess that the Auto Squelch is switched "OFF" or Maximum Range is switched "ON"

Both the 4700 & 3500 has Power Saver and it is a built-in feature. Your radios have this unique circuit designed that extend battery life. If there are no transmissions for 10 seconds, the radio will automatically switch to Battery Save mode and the Power Saver icon will flash in the display. This will not affect the radio’s ability to receive incoming transmissions.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
