Hi Frank, It sounds to me like you may have a bad dectector diode. Other possibilities are cold solder joints in the stand up boards in the IF section. Good Luck

Ive been useing my cb for about four weeks and just today the little meter thing on the left hand side stopped working when i speak but works just fine when the signal is coming in. and ppl cant hear when...

Hi take over

Sounds like you may have a defective radio and may need to send it back. I had the same problem with mine but was out of warranty so i dove in and found mine to be the low voltage transmit circuit.
This sounds like it may be to new to remove the covers off of though so I would allow midland fix it. hope I helped .

Thanks Ray

New hand held Midland CB Model #75-785 that will not transmit

Try asking any onrt CB'ers if they can hear you at all.

Could be 2 things -

#1 - you are really too close.

#2 - you've blown the output stage of your rig by keying the mic without an aerial fitted.
- This is very common, and most repair centres are used to dealing with this.
If you are up to electronic repair, it's possible to DIY repair.
Could also be an antenna mismatch or fault.

Help me!!!

SWR OK? Is it throwing a dead-key carrier? No carrier? Midlands many times will show what looks like a processed modulation signal but is not going out your finals on the radio, and out the antenna. Suggest an external in-line meter to see if there really is a transmitted signal. If there is a signal, look for a broken/bad wire at the mics plug-in end. If no signal on the add-on meter, suspect an audio chip or final that's defective. All three are fixable at a GOOD CB Shop.

Look for schematics for a midland cb

daniel, first off, I need a complete model number for the radio info. Midland only made about 40-50 different models over the years. The header calls for a 75-822 and you are asking for a ** 833. The beginning should be a 13 or 75,76,77,78. Let me know the # and i'll be able to get you the proper pinout.
Thanks,,, Mechanic

Given the fact that when you key up the mic you should not hear any thing because the receiver section is "turned off" (no antenna and the speaker is muted). This would seem to indicate that the switch the headset controls which allow the change over from RX to Tx is bad or that the circuit in the CB unit which the head set plugs into is having a problem. Do you hear the same flutter without the headset? Try to get another headset or test one out just to see if the problem is eliminated by using a known good headset.
