older batteries or not fully charged batteries can cause distorted RX. if your batteries are more than 2 yrs old they should be replaced. also dirt or moisture in the radio speaker, or trying to talk beyond their Range can also cause distorted RX. you use most of your power when you transmit.
I have one that doesn't transmit between the two we could have one radio but who's.. you should try to tune the receive cans but with no schematic you can't because if you turn the wrong one you could kill the radio. I would buy another radio like a radio shack trc - 503 or something in that line if you're into small radio's. Some of them can be opened up to talk like a big radio.
The battery is bad or not charged. Check your charger and charger/battery connection. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser and try charging again. With a new battery it may take up to 3 charge cycles to fully charge your battery.
I'm not sure about your particular model but many CB radios use the microphone push-to-talk switch to kill the speaker while the radio is transmitting. If you don't have the correct microphone or if the cord has a broken wire it can cause the radio to have no sound. Another possibility is that the speaker is bad. There is probably an external speaker jack on the back of the radio. You could try plugging a different speaker or even an earphone in the jack to see if you get sound there.
