SOURCE: GMR1035-2

Hi,

The RX symbol and static noise would only appear if the squelch is down or if you are receiving something from a transmitter.

Receiving something could mean either an intelligent radio transmission from another comparable unit or this could also be spillover signals from adjacent radio transmitters strong enough to override the squelch settings normally called "splatter". At times, electronic devices could cause this effect such as RFI (radio frequency interference) from units such as a personal computer.

It is also possible that your Monitor Mode is "ON", turning it OFF would possibly resolve the issue To turn OFF monitor mode:Press the vol/mon UP or DOWN key. The RX icon will stop blinking and disappears.

In some cases, a component failure would cause this problem. Your GMR1035-2 uses an Automatic Squelch Feature, this would mean the use of a FM Discriminator Chip for Squelch Control. Most manufacturers uses an MC3357P IC chip for this purpose. This of course would require opening the unit, desoldering the suspected component and solder in a replacement. This would further require that you be familiar with electronic components, circuitry, DVM and a low wattage soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable doing this, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified technician.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: constant static

You have one of three issues: 1) You are close to another device transmitting on your frequency, 2) Your radio has a problem and needs service, or 3) You have a low, bad or defective battery.

What you can do:
--Try the radio at a different location to see if the problem is only at a certain location. This will tell you if it is simply interference by another device.
-- Check your antenna for damage, replace if necessary.
--Try the radio with another known good battery and see if the problem goes away.
--If you don't have another battery, try turning it on when in the charging cradle. (NOTE: Do not press the PTT while the radio is on the charger. This can damage your radio. The radio should always be turned off when charging, unless running a simple test such as this one.)

If these do not solve the problem, your radio needs serviced.

SOURCE: Constant RX mode on cobra microtalk PR3850WX

Sounds like the radio was subjected to electrostatic discharge. If you have your manual, and it describes a way to do a "master reset" on the radio, follow the instructions. This usually involves pushing down on one key while turning the radio on. Otherwise you have to find a licensed dealer for factory service, as there is no way to repair the radio yourself. The use of surface mount technology still confuses many Techs unless they have been to a company's two or three week seminars.

Adjust your SQUELCH control or setting so that the noise disappears. The RX indicator will go out.

My uniden UH3O5sx is always stuck on receive (rx is always showing) can receive but not transmit


Set up your privacy tones or adjust the squelch level to stop the static and bring the handy out of receive mode. Some models have a busy channel lock out, that if it beleives it hears something it will not let you transmit over the other station.

How do I adjust squelch. Squelch is locked on


I suspect you have it in the continuous monitor mode so follow the directions for getting back into the automatic squelch mode.

AUTOMATIC SQUELCH: The FRS is equipped with an automatic squelch circuitry filtering out weak transmission and unwanted noise, usually caused by terrain conditions.

MONITOR:
- This feature turns off the automatic squelch feature, either momentarily or continuously. It helps in receiving signals to its maximum range, but may pick up static signals, too.

Momentary monitor:
- Press the MON button; the monitor symbol will appear.
- Release the button to restore the automatic squelch.

Continuous monitor:
- Press the MON button for more than 2 seconds until a beep sound is heard. The monitor symbol will appear.
- To restore the automatic squelch, press and release the MON button again.

NOTE: You cannot transmit when the Monitor feature is activated.

This comes from the manual I found on-line at:

How to get rid of static


Your radio allows you to listen for weak signals on

the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON the Monitor Mode:

• For brief listening, press MON button. The RX

icon blinks.

• Press and hold MON button for 2 seconds until

two beeps sound for continuous listening. The

receiver circuit stays open, letting both the noise

and weak signals to be heard.

To turn OFF Monitor Mode:

Press MON button to return to "Normal" mode,
and the RX icon stops blinking and disappears.

Set the squelch and knob to full counter-clockwise position. Turn the volume up to the 1/2 way point. Disconnect the external speaker plug from the jack. Disconnect any PA speaker plug from jack. Static / voices should be heard from internal speaker. If not disconnect the mic. Static / voices should be heard. If not, tune a different channel, sound should be heard. if not, look for indication of the radio stuck in transmit mode. If in transmit, there will be no sound until you can stop transmitting (hopefully while connected to a 50 ohm dummy load or suitable antenna - otherwise the final transistors may be blown). Reconnect accessories to determine problem component.

Good luck!

No voice to Garmin Nuvi 660


In case it is a software problem try this and see if it will fix it......follow these steps.
1. Power off the unit.
2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).
3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to try recover from the problem.

No message recorded. Static when in use.


It sounds like you have damage to an internal component of your phone.

HERE is a link to the manual, if needed.

Lots of static heard during use of this phone.


Time for a new phone. Most likely there are some bad solder connections and they could be anywhere. A 2 year old battery should not cause such severe problems so I'd spend the money on a new phone before a new battery.
