SOURCE: DROPPED MIDLAND WEATHER RADIO - NOT WORKING NOW

I will be honest with you, I haven't had any problems with this, but I will give you my opinion on what you should do. You can try to call tech support, but I do not think they are going to replace your radio because under their one year warranty, it says that they will repair or replace, at its option without charge, your radio if it fails due to a defect in material or workmanship within One Year following the initial consumer purchase. In other words, they are probably going to feel like this was your fault and your sole responsibility for the radio not working, not the radio itself. I will give you two possible solutions that you can try, but the only solution maybe to just get a new one. My first solution is to actually open the radio by unscrewing the bottom screws (the other two bottom screws are under the black grip-pads), and checking the circuit board and other contractions inside the radio to make sure everything is still intact. I've never tried this with the weather radio, but I did try it with a digital tire gauge I had bought. The tire gauge was not coming on when it was supposed to. I opened it up and played with some of the parts in it. I'm still not finished fixing it, but I did see that it was working better than it was before. Try playing with the parts in the radio and then put the radio back together and turn it on. If this does not work, than it's likely something that cannot be replaced and you will have to get another one. They have them at Wal-Mart for $29.99. I don't know if you are running your radio just on batteries or not, but if you are, maybe you should change the batteries. I hope this works out for you and remember, this is just a suggestion.

SOURCE: I have midland wr-100 weather

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you're reading this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. The problem is that you are hearing a high pitch tone coming from the speaker. First check to make sure the weather mode is on. To do this, switch the radio to the right side and make sure the Weather Radio On/Off switch is switched to On. You should also check the alarm to make sure it's not on and set. If the alarm is on, turn it off. Your alert type may also be a cause for this. If your alert type is set on TONE, try changing it to DISPLAY or VOICE. Reply back if you still receive problems. Thank you for choosing FixYa as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a nice day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this. Hope this helps and remember our site the next time you need troubleshooting assistance.

Weather radio just gives off high pitch squeal and no weather info.


If you hold the WEATHER/SNOOZE button and the VOLUME UP button, it resets the radio to its deafult factory settings.

When I press Weather/Snooze the radio emitts a high pitch sound like a whistling. I have the radio set to voice, I have verified the channel 162.4750 for my area. I have a scanner tuned to that same...


Solution #1
Some counties have two frequency channels. check this URL address to see if you have another frequency channel for your area- http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm. If you do, try the other frequency channel for your area.

Solution #2
You may be receiving a poor reception quality because of where the radio is located or the antenna's positioning. First play with the antenna until you get a better reception. If this doesn't help, try moving it to a location near a window or outside room. If this doesn't help, you may have to buy an external antenna from an electronics store and hook it up to your radio. If you still have your WR-100 Owner's Manual, they have a page in there for reception (page 12), and it lists in there their suggested weather radio antenna.

Solution #3
It may not be anything you've done at all. It could be the weather station's transmitter itself. May you should call your local NWS office and plea your case to them.

Need to tune and peak my midland 1000 cb


sounds like a problem to me . I have one that was in fair shape that had the same symptoms , I pounded the crop out of it with a hammer and now it doesn't recieve anything . You can't find a service manual for it ,unless midland will sell you one but don't hold your breath . Remember a 26 oz. hammer works good but not the radio.
