Question about Cobra 22 CHANNEL 2-WAY RADIOS

1 Answer

Low Battery I purchased a Cobra Micro talk about 6 months ago. Used them a few times and left them in the RV. Recently turned them on and got an expected low battery indication. They would not charge up with the Conra battery charger. I took the rechargable batteries out and charged them correctly in another charger. Put them back it and got the same low level. Bought some newduracell batteries and got the same problem. I thought it might be a problem with one of the units but they are BOTH doing it. Suggestions????

Radio will not turn on back light lights but that's it. And then to turn it off I have to take out a battery

Model numbers are critical. Cobra makes a lot of different models and instructions are different. Micro Talk is what they call them all.That said, on one model, the "light" is located beneath the PTT switch. It also adjusts the squelch for "max" range. Make certain it is not jammed by seeing if the switch moves. Other than that, it is only a light and would extend the battery if left off. On all Cobras with top mounted audio jacks, make certain they are covered at all times. Any liquid can intrude and could cause any number of issues, including your light problem. Factory repair is your only option except you could open 1 up and clean the board carefully.

Do you leav the cobra micro talk walkie talkies on when charging

Also, never transmit with them in the charging cradle. I know, lots do but you risk ruining the radio beyond repair.

Viking V300 hot tub - jets, high and low, will only run about 10 seconds, then stop, then start

This sounds to us like maybe you have an air lock in the system.
Try this:
Turn the pump on and while it is trying to operate, loosen the discharge union on the water pump until it is spraying water (do NOT unthread it very far).
Most of the time if you have an air lock this will solve the problem.

No flashing LEDs. Joystick and charger indicate full charge.

Time to replace battery - not taking a charge properly.

I have the cobra micro talk with rechargeable batteries my workers plug them up every night and get them in the morning but some arestill saying low battery, does the walkie talkie need to be turned off...

they charge better if they are turned off. since they do not have a paid dedicated channel, signals can

still be received by any walkie talkie using the same channel, and can deplete the charging process

to the radio. good luck!

Bought a Sigma TR7112 calculator about 8 months ago, used a few times then, but haven't used it recently. Have been trying to make it work for the last two days, even left it on the windowcil in daylight,...

The same thing happened to mine. Although it's dual power if the battery dies it won't work. Unscrew the back off the calculator and you will see a flat button battery, replace it and it will work again.
