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.

Double check against all the instructions - in particular, make sure the batteries are charged according to "before first use" spec, that the volume is turned up, and that the squelch (if fitted and not automatic) is adjusted properly. If it still doesn't work, take it back to Wal-Mart. If the product doesn't work, there's no need for the packaging to be in good condition - it's not as if they'll be needing it to resell the goods to anybody else. A.

The Cobra microTALK PR-3500-2 DX VP Radios are supposed to be equipped with acoustic noise filters that are built in the microphone. This problem could have been caused from the radios getting wet, damaged, or the microphone going bad, the microphone can be replaced if you still have the warranty, but if you want to save money you may wan to get a new set of 2-ways. I suggest the Uniden GMR325-2, these models are inexpensive and have an approximate 5 mile range in good conditions.

Many two-way radios have a Monitor function that disables the squelch control. The squelch is what keeps the radios quiet when they are not receiving an incoming signal. However the squelch feature can also cause weak signals to cut out and not be understood, so the Monitor function provides a way to disable the squelch in those circumstances. It sounds like you have the Monitor enabled / squelch disabled on the units that you hear constant static.
For the Cobra MicroTalk 4100 it appears that you enable the monitor by holding down the Light/Max Range button for 5 seconds until the radio beeps twice. You may have activated this function inadvertently. To disable the monitor and re-enable squelch simply press the Light/Max Range button again or change channels.
If this doesn't fix the problem there may be a problem with the auto squelch function on the radios. Or the channel you are operating on may have a noise level that is above the radio's squelch level. You can try changing channels. Or another possible solution would be to activate the CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) on all the radios. This function will mute the radio's receiver unless a signal is received from another unit using he same CTCSS code. This should keep the units quiet regardless of the noise level on the channel. However all the radios MUST be set to the same CTCSS code or they will not be able to communicate with each other.
