Question about Cobra 25 LTD 40-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

Sound, But VERY VERY quiet

My cobra 25 ltd classic (an older model) Will send and recieve fine, and all functions work, but the sound is near a whisper. I tried an external speaker, and it was still quiet. Even with the rf gain full. And the volume knob works correctly for the pa speaker. Any ideas?

- also note i've tried three different microphones

I have the identical model and also had the same problem. I took it in to an appliance repair and they found a problem with the output circut something about a burnt transistor is what they said. I had them replace it and has been working fine since. Hope this helps.

I have a Cobra ltd 25 classic in my pick up. the cb will turn on but i cant get any stacik no matter where i turn the squelch or rf gain. this doesnt seem right because it has never done that before. but...

Does the signal meter show any signal? Try plugging something into and out of the EXT Speaker jack to see if maybe that is preventing the internal speaker from working, or plug in an external speaker or headphone to test it. If the meter shows nothing, I'm concerned about your electronics, especially with the 'squelch' control 'wide-open'. 73's

29 LTD classic recieve is way off frequency. recieve sounds like bleed over from another channel. how do i adjust the receive frquency for a cobra 29 ltd classic?

un fortunatly to properly align this radio you need an audio VTVM, occiliscope and a dummy load.

but before you get crazy with trying to align your radio, is the delta tune right in the middle? if not thats why recieve is off.... as well you can adjust delta tune to compensate for off frequency.

Cobra 25 ltd wx classic

the mics on these cobras have a receive wire in them so the transmit will still work even if the receive wire is broken,if this wire is broken the unit will not make any sound...........remove the plug from the radio end of the mic and check the connections on the 5 pin connector.....(could be a cold solder or broken wire) or try a new mic or one that is proven work on another radio
hope this helps.................good luck!

No sound

The Cobra 25 requires the mic to be working for any sound to come out. My suggestion is that you first try a new mic. If this doesn't work, look real close at the board on the soldered side ( around the if section, thats the area that right under the waxed area on the component side of the board ) for cold solder joints ( broken lead solder) You may need a magnifing glass. Good Luck
