Question about Cobra microTALK LI6000-2 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Out of the blue one of my cobra microTALK LI6000 won't turn on. It is not the battery because the other radio works and I switched batteries and that did not resolve issue.

Hello lstimpson,

You may have the CTCSS privacy code function enabled on one radio and not on the other. This function keeps your radio's received muted unless it receives a signal from another radio using the same privacy code. If you have Privacy Codes set for radio A but not for radio B you will still be able to transmit from A to B but when you transmit on radio B your signal will not be heard on radio A.

Make sure that both radios are set to the same privacy code or that the function is turned off on both radios.

Best Regards,
Ken

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.

SOURCE: I cannot get one of the radios to turn on. I've tried a good battery to no avail

Your fuse is blown, not sure if you can replace it.
Some of our radios you have to take quite a bit apart to get at the fuse and replace it.

SOURCE: cobra pr 3850wx bought new NiMh 800mAh 1.2v

  • 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

Cobra microtalk frs120 won't turn on. Has sat for an extended period; there was a bit of dried battery acid in the battery compartment of both radios. One radio works, but even after replacing th


Sometimes that highly corrosive battery acid gets on the boards and trashes them. I have lost remotes like that and now remove the batteries on those units I do not use often - remotes are expensive!

And if it happens to an expensive piece of equipment, that really bites.

I have the Cobra micro Talk LI6000-2 (14 Channels) 2-Way Radios and one turns on and charges and the other will not turn on for anything. They will not charge unless turned on and on the charger; so one is...


  • The fact that these turn on while on the charger is an indicator that the batteries are just that far gone. Depending on how much you like these radios vrs the cost of a new set is something to think about.

  • This link is where you can get a reliable battery replacement.

  • I use a newer Midland talk around for camping, hiking etc. The thing I always look for in a talk around radio is if the manufacturer battery goes bad or runs dry can I use some batteries at home with it? I like the fact I can put 4AA batteries of the shelf in my radio in an emergency. And when the stock battery gores kaput, I can use some AA rechargeable batteries I already have at home and save on replacing the battery or radio. Something to think about should you decide to get a different radio set.
