Question about Uniden GMR638-2CK (22 Channels) 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

Dropped it in the water

We dropped one of our 3-pack of Uniden GMR638 2-way radios in a puddle of water. We tried a new battery, but It seems to have given up the ghost. Can you tell me which other numbers might fit into this recharging cradle or where we might buy 1 of the radios?

Thanks!

Hello Penny2,

It does not appear (based on the manufactuer's website) that the charging cradle for the Uniden GMR638 is compatible with any other radio models.

You may not be able to purchase another GMR638 if you only want a single radio to replace the one that was dropped. The current trend is for manufacturers to bundle consumer two-way radios in packs of two, three or four since most users do not purchase single radios.

If you definitely want to get the exact same model you might have to either purchase another two-pack or contact the manufacturer directly to see if they have single units available. Otherwise, any 22 channel FRS/GMRS combo radio should be able to communicate with your Uniden radios.

Best Regards,

Hi,

It would seem that your battery pack is Ni-Cad, if so, these have a memory, this means they will only recharge from the last top-up, rather than complete charge.

You need to completely drain the battery pack until it is flat, as in no charge left.

Otherwise, buy replacement Lithium Iron (Li-On) battery pack from Uniden or on ebay, these don't have that memory effect the Ni-Cads do, so you know you won't have these problems again.

If it's a really good radio, then replace the battery pack with really good one.

I hope this has been helpful.

Regards,
Peter

Have pair of FRS14ND radios, with charger. One battery pack has quit, so other must be about to. Tried switching remaining pack between radios & both work, so it's not radio. Can't get AAA alkaline...


Similar problem, solved when dirty contacts were cleaned, look for some corrosion on either the battery pack or in the radio battery holder. Use very fine grit sand paper.

also check to see if a tab on the battery holder contact is bent inward (radio dropped perhaps)

Uniden bearcat bc100xlt Can you use regular batteries with this radio ?


If you open the 7.2 volt battery pack you'll find 6 AA NiCad batteries. If you're even a little bit handy you can "rebuild" the pack with 6 new NiCad or NiMH batteries -- a save a big chunk of the $80 that suppliers want for a new pack.

I dropped 1 of our uniden phones in water and it is not working. It is from a set of 3. The other two are fine, Whay should I do?


It might be too late. but...

1. Take out the battery from the phone.
2. shake an excess water from the phone.
3. Allow to dry for 48 hrs.
4. Replace the battery and maybe the phone will work.

I have a uniden that's been in a swimming pool and it came back to life.

Good luck.

I dropped my phone in the puddle but it dropped on the back, a dried it, and then tried charging a red light appeared and i left it over night too charge, but nothing happend.


the red light may be an indication of damage to the battery, if you really like your phone you should try buying a new battery, if that doesnt work, you may need a new phone all together.

I dropped my LG enV into a puddle of water.


Sounds like you will need a new battery. My env2 would only work if plugged into the wall charger after I dropped it in the toilet. I got a new battery and it works fine now!

Dropped phone in puddle only screen is broken PLEASE HELP MEE!!!!


Unfortunately, I would suggest you not trying to fix this. The reason is once water gets inside, any of the parts that got wet will eventually corrode. It might work a day, a week, I actually had my phone work 2 months, then it will stop. You could replace the screen and have it work right away, but nobody could gaurantee that it will continue.

Even drying doesn't usually help. Water kills electronics - period. That is the only solution I can offer, because that is the only correct answer.

Bp940 battery broken


Looking for same battery.
Found this site:

http://www.nicdladyonline.com/rebuilding/uniden.html

Says they can rebuild the battery pack or sell you new cell insert.
Might give them a try - I'd prefer to just get the cells and do it myself but I can't figure out how to open the battery pack without wrecking it.
