If the radio has been setting up, or put away for a while,.. turn it on and let it set over night, it should be fine after everything gets charged up.....hope this was helpful

per fcc rules (laws)? you cannot put an amp on a cb. max output 4 amps. you should be able to put a pa speaker using the pa output jack. take your radio back for warranty.

Alright i have a cobra 29 ltd classic from 1993 bought for 110 bucks.. everything was workin great!! i was talkin skip all day today and all of a sudden boom the meter just swung all the way backwards and...


Sounds like you blew the finals. When you "RUN POWER", you increase chances of something going wrong and it is mainly caused by a high SWR reading. You fried something for sure. Better get those SWR's checked while you are there.

I bought this from a buddy of mine then my other buddy hooked it up for me and the sound isn't workin and I think the speaker is broke or whatever you know. Are the speakers sensitive?


First, this is the worst radio Cobra ever made. I don't know why they still make it. Its horrible.

You probably have got a bad mic, or a break in a wire in the mic cord. With out a properly functioning mic, the radio will not go into receive mode. Thus you will have no sound.

I wouldn't waste money on a new mic for that radio. Instead save a little more money and get a cobra 29. its a much better radio. Also, if you haven't, when you get the cobra 29, read the part about SWR in the manual.

You must tune the antenna. If you do not, you will destroy the radio over time.

How do I get back to regular CB channels on the 75-822? All I can get is 27.xx and 26.xx. Where are the 1-40 channels.


I'm guessing that you bought the CB from a person not a company the CB band is between 26Mhz and 27Mhz unfortunately your CB was Modded to talk on Ham radio frequency's what i would suggest is one of two things if you are good at electrical soldering get a schematic and take out the mod or look on-line for a ham radio store like ham radio outlet near you and see if they can un modd it.

if you bought it from a store return it or talk to midland to see if they can fix/reset it at http://www.midlandradio.com/Contact-Us

one other thing until the radio is fixed it is not FCC part 95 or 97 compliant and is therefor illegal to transmit with it

My 2517 talks good after awhile on it it just drop out like dont have no mod but receive good let it cool it go back workin fine any idea? shows when this happens it shows on radio signal moving none on...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On a MOSFET version of a Galaxy DX2517 and assuming stock mic, heat related issues of missing modulation would require initial checks of:
  • echo circuit - board EB-2000 EPT0SSB51J;
  • mic amp - IC7 NJM4558D;
  • AF power amp - Q53 to Q55.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Hi, You may want to check your PA/CB switch (should be in CB position) by moving it up and down a few times. A Cal switch if present in your model normally stands for Calibration which is a feature to measure the SWR of your antenna and should not really affect the TX/RX function of the radio. If still a no go, you may have to seek the services of a qualified radio technician or bring it back to your dealer for repair/replacement. Good luck and hopes this work out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
