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.

Here you can download the manual for your radios. http://www.midlandradio.com/Resource_/OwnerManual/53/LXT410.pdf Hope this helps.

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.
