This is a common problem with a lot of Galaxy, Cobra and similar radios. It usually occurs from one of two things the radio has been operated on a higher voltage than it was designed for ( Called Volting) and has damaged the LEDS or it can occur from poor connections to the display board either the 8 Volt line or the Grounds check for the proper voltage at the display. Note if you ground your meter somewhere besides the display ground you may get a correct voltage reading but still not have the correct voltage reaching the display so be sure to ground your meter at the display and read the voltage there as well.

I WANT TO BUY A GALAXY 2547 CB RADIO. I FOUND ONE AND IT SAYS EXPORT USE ONLY . WHAT DOES IT MEAN, CAN I USE IT. THANKS


Normally, this radio will only work on CB frequencies. I suspect the radio has been modified to get channels below and above the regular 40. If so, the radio is no longer type-accepted by FCC. It is unlikely you would get into trouble using the radio.

Galaxy dx 2547


Hi Joey,
It sounds to me that the power supply you are using may be a little under powered. It's not really a bad problem as long as the voltage doesn't drop below about 10.5 - 11 volts. As for the Galaxy. I'm not real certain of the question but a Galaxy will usally use more current to make it work properly, so I would suggest a bigger ( more amps ) power supply.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped some
