Albrecht ae4180 AM/ FM CB Radio repair manual... No transmit and receive...

I need badly a service manual or schematics for Albrecht ae4180. I just brought it second hand. The transceiver works, but the microphone has some PTT and connections problems. I tinkered for a while with the switch and pin connections. Unfortunately, I accidentally shorted something (I think it has something to do with the mic's center voltage pin and the RX-TX switch or input). An electronic component went on smoke, but I couldn't locate the burnt part or identify if it was a diode, a capacitor, a resistor, and an IC. I already used a magnifying glass to locate the burnt part, but all components seems to be intact (no cracks, no burn)

Please help. I know this is a German made CB Radio, and I already looked for documentations on the web, but they are very limited (and most of them ar written in Dutch language). I need to identify which part went up on smoke and possibly damaged.

My unit still powered up. It goes through channels 1 to 80, and with modified AM/ FM switchable bands on all channels. It has fully functional LCD display and switches. But no receive and transmit, though I can see a 1 bar in the RX signal indicator on both AM and FM band. The channel switching becomes too slow too, as a result of the damage.

I hope I could still put this lovely radio to work, just hoping that radio's microprocessor still works.

Thank you soo much!!!

Problem no squelch noise or speaker like its muted, but can hear weather ok shows receiving and ant ok

Since the radio cannot transmit on Weather bands, there is no need for the radio to detect if it is transmitting when receiving weather.
In CB mode (on CB channels) the radio will mute when transmitting. So... a guess is that it is muting, or transmitting all the time in CB mode. Check for a mic problem by removing the Mic from the radio ... if it receives CB with no mic connected, then there is an issue with the mic. Otherwise, unless the unit is in PA mode (public address mode) it is likely something internal and beyond the scope of this service.

How to get emperor ts-5010 to transmit on 29.520 fm and receive on 29.620?

This is an "Export-Only" radio that is banned by the FCC for use in the United States. It is a violation of Title 47 U.S.C. for any "CB" radio to be coincidentally capable (or modified to be made capable) of transmitting on frequencies assigned to the Amateur Radio Service. It is also against Federal statutes for any Amateur Radio equipment to be used for communicating on frequencies assigned to the Citizens (CB) radio service.

No receive audio no receive signals but transmits

If you have a schematic and a service manual try tuning the receive . If that doesn't work use it for parts .You can't buy another and that is the only way that is cheaper .the radio ,new/used will cost less than a tech will charge to repair it.

Cb is recieving but not trnsmiting

Ah! these and the cobra 2000 had the same board and same problems--

Some will have no transmit audio (check or sub to make sure microphone not the problem) and others no receive audio.

If circuit problem both are caused by a filter cap that opens.

Usually this occurs when radio has not been used for a long period of time.

If you have a schematic for the radio (mine are all out of reach) you will find in the audio circuit a cap (I think it is 220 uf at 10 volts) right near where the volume is controlled that is bad.

The no transmit audio problem is another cap in the mic circuit.

I hope this helps you as it is likely your problem--note if the audio output IC was bad no receive or transmit audio.

Please explain a 10 meter am/fm radio


You do set this up like a regular CB. The meters refers to how long the waves are. CB is 11 meters. So its very close. The antenna woud be tuneds slightly shorter. Use the SWR meter in the radio to calibrate just like you would a normal cb.

Now for the ABCDEF knob. each letter is 40 channels in the band. So A would be 1 - 40 channels, then B would be the next 1 - 40 channel frequencies. You use the frequency counter in the radio(providing that model has one) to tell what channel you are on.

Here is some info one the frequencies in the band.

Now for AM and FM. this is the type of modulation you are using for transmit and receive.

CB transmits on AM or SSB. Amplitude modulation or Single side band. Most CB radios only have AM. But some also have SSB. None will have FM.

FM is frequency modulation.

10 meter radios can have AM FM SSB and DSB depending on the model and options it comes with.

So your radio has 6 ranges for freqency. each is 40 or 50 channesl. Not sure what model you have. If it has 40 then you have 240 channel freqencies.

with AM and FM, you double that, because you can talk on AM or FM on all the channels. If you are on AM and some one transmits on FM unless they are really close, you will not hear them at all, but if you do with will just be garbbled noise.

Also Am and FM both work a little different with range etc.

Now, you may be able to talk on the CB channels as well. Cb starts at 26.965 MHz and ends at 27.405 MHz. The channels are all .010 MHz appart.

Hope this helps
