Package, manuel and receipt were accidentally thrown away and we don't know how to charge the radios. They work, but are running low on battery power! They have a power supply cord that you plug both...


From what I just read on the Cobra website, you may be misinterpreting the battery indicator lights:

My radio keeps showing low batteries

This may simply be a matter of misinterpreting the low-battery indicator. We use two different types of battery indicators:
  1. Battery Level Indicator: This battery indicator is always visible, and has several segments. When all the segments are lit, the batteries are full. When only the last segment is lit, the batteries are almost exhausted.
  2. Low Battery Indicator: This type is usually NOT visible. It only appears when the batteries are low, at which time it flashes on the display to warn you of a low battery condition.
Please note that when you turn on your radio it first performs a display test. Everything on the display will light up for a few seconds, including the Low Battery Indicator. This does not mean that the batteries are low. After a few seconds the display test will end, at which time the Low Battery Indicator should go away.

Here is a link to the Manual for your radio:

https://www.cobra.com/downloads/manuals/PR260WX_MANL.pdf

It is a PDF file, which requires that you have Adobe Reader or equivalent installed on your computer for it to open and display properly. If you don't have it, it can be found here (it's free!):

Good luck!

Hi,

As per instructions of the manual:
"...Your microTALK® radio can alert you to incoming signals by
sounding an audible call tone, by vibrating silently or both. To change call settings:
1. Press the Lock/Mode button until the Call Setting icon flashes on the display. The current setting (“01” vibrate + ring, “02” vibrate only or “03” ring only) is displayed.
2. Press the Channel Up or Channel Down button to change the call setting.
3. Choose one of the following:
a. Press the Lock/Mode button to enter the new setting and proceed to other functions.
b. Press the Hi•Low/Enter button to enter the new setting and return to Standby mode
..."

Should you need a copy of the manual, it is available here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Long range mode


Hi,

For the Cobra PR4700WX:
The user's manual is available here
To turn on/off the long range mode - (If you are referring to low & high power); Press and hold the Hi•Low/Enter button for two seconds.
Alternately, if you are referring to the Light/Max Range (receive sensitivity), 3 options:
1. To briefly turn off auto squelch - Press the Light/Max Range button for less than five seconds. If you hear two beeps, you have turned the maximum range extender on.
2. To turn maximum range extender on - Press and hold the Light/Max Range button for at least five seconds until you hear
two beeps which indicates the maximum range extender is on.
3. To turn maximum range extender off - Press and release the Light/Max Range button or change channels.
Probable reason that "fishing was all right but for hunting there is to much static" is becasue these radios operate on line of sight principle. Anything that obstructs the linear view would reduce signal strength/range. There is not that much obstruction when fishing compared to that when hunting in the woods or rough uneven terrain.
Please note that when using Channels 1 through 7 and 15 through 22 on high power, the Hi icon will be visible on the display. When using those channels on low power and on Channels 8 through 14, the Low icon will be visible on the display.

For the Cobra PR3500DX:
The user's manual is available here.
The transmission message icon off when not in use - this icon will only display if the radio is receiving something or if your are pressing the PTT button.
The other three the transmission signal is on at all times - indicates that either you are transmitting (unlikely) or the radio is in constant receive mode (most likely). I would venture a guess that the Auto Squelch is switched "OFF" or Maximum Range is switched "ON"

Both the 4700 & 3500 has Power Saver and it is a built-in feature. Your radios have this unique circuit designed that extend battery life. If there are no transmissions for 10 seconds, the radio will automatically switch to Battery Save mode and the Power Saver icon will flash in the display. This will not affect the radio’s ability to receive incoming transmissions.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Radio is switched on vibrates and goes directly to a blank screen


The problem that you discribe, sounds weird, check if the radio battery connectors are clean, if the radios are new, I think you must to cliam the warranty.
