Opening battery compartment on Midland LXT80 2-way radios

I have a set of Midland LXT80 walkie-talkies. How do I get the battery compartment cover off to replace the batteries?? I've tried sliding it, squeezing it, pulling at it, all to no avail!

First take the clip off by pulling the tab while sliding it down. Then once the clip is off, push in and down on the top of the battery compartment and it should come off.

I just had the same question. I started to think that it had a rechargeable battery and that the battery compartment could not be opened. However, it does have a battery compartment holding 3 AAA batteries. Just push in and down very hard and it will slide/pop off.

Unscrew then push down and pull down on the battery compartment and this should do it.

Check your programming, specifically the private line (PL code) settings. This is one problem which can cause the problem you are describing.

My Midland walkie talkie quits transmitting about 3 seconds after I start transmitting


It is more likely a power issue. PTT switches do not normally cause a short circuit. Check the batteries, swap the batteries and see if that helps. Radios take a great deal more power to transmit than turn on or receive. If not the battery, try a low voltage battery, such as a cordless phone battery. If it still occurs, check your warrany and send it back to the factory.

The batteries have likely been damaged from being on the chargers too long. Try trading a known good battery into the non-working radios and see if it/they will work with a good battery. If so, replace your batteries, and then only put the radios on the charge when they need a charge, such as after the radios have been used 8-10 hours. Longterm charging can quickly age batteries. Life expectancy of a battery is 18-24 months with good care.

Best regards.

Cobra pr 3850wx bought new NiMh 800mAh 1.2v rechargable batteries now the base charger lights won't come on when i put the radios in it


  • A Cobra 3850wx Radio requires 4x600mAh NiMH 1.2V AAA Part # GA-3ANH rechargeable batteries.
  • Not just any AAA rechargeable battery will charge in the unit.
  • All will work in the radio but not all will charge inside the radio. It has to be a specific battery.
  • This is an example of what you need. GA-3ANH batteries which will charge inside your radio. http://www.tomsawyer2wayradios.com/catalog/item/3823249/5076887.htm

One of my midland lxt 420 walkie talkies wont charge!!!!!


If it has rechargable batteries in it like mine does, the batteries have probably lost all of its life.. you can replace them.. if you dont have batteries, you could have a loose wire inside the walkie talkie that wont let it charge..

Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies


Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.
