Question about Cobra 29 NW CB Radio

1 Answer

My neighbor has a base unit at his house. Whenever he is talking on it, I hear it in every speaker in my house. The TV, radio, baby monitor, everything. It even affects my wireless mouse. Is there anything that I can do to stop it from affecting me?

Talk nice to him and try to concince him to install a Lo Pass filter. Technicaly, his radio should be insatlled as not to cause problems with his neighbors. Perhaps his equipment needs better grounding or he may be running more power than is legal, as well as over modulating his signal.

In my area when this tyoe of pro blem occurs we have the right to talk / report to the proper authorities and have the offender cooperate or be taken off the air...............The erasiest way is that he installs the filter.

Sony 910 baby monitor makes loud beeping when turned on

The picture you posted looks like it has the channel setting option. Notice at the bottom there are three little holes that are (as I recall) either red, yellow or green. You have to set the channel on both the transmitter in the baby's room, and in the receiver you keep with you, so that they have the same pattern of colored dots in those holes. When they have the same pattern, they're on the same radio channel. If you can hear a neighbor's monitor, pick a different color pattern to change channels. As long as both units have the same pattern, you should hear the baby, not the beeping.

No sound on parent unit

Posting this all over, common issue...

Okay, a couple of things.

This speaker issue seems to be a common problem, and I believe it most likely occurs due to rough handling of the unit. Although it seems to be fairly rugged, it should be treated gently. In general, I would only handle it as much as needed, and be careful when setting it down, and make sure it doesn\'t get dropped.

With that being said, the unit can be opened, however doing so will break at least some of the "snaps" that hold it together. If it is out of warranty and you need to get into it, this is a necessary evil.

Step one: Remove the battery cover (one phillips screw) and battery. There is a second, smaller phillips screw that also must be removed.

Step Two: At this point, you are ready to separate the unit. Using multiple flat head screwdrivers, pry the unit open (starting on the right side when looking at the unit from the front) then "wedge" the pried open area with a second flathead screwdriver as it will naturally want to close back up. Continue working your way around the unit, being careful not to crack the screen. You will break some tabs along the way, but I see no way around this as they are not visible to try and release them any other way.

Step Three: Once you have separated the two halves of the unit, the power button will have fallen out. This is okay as it will slot back into place when you reassemble the unit. Just set it aside and do not lose it.

Step Four: I do not know the exact failure mode of the speaker, however you will find that it is apparently strongly secured in the housing with an adhesive (epoxy or some sort of resin) and if you had to remove it it would be difficult and not very fun.

MY SOLUTION: I hooked the battery back up and turned on the music feature, which should play music from both the camera and the parent unit. In my case, I found that tapping hard on the speaker (it took more force than you would think) would cause the music to momentarily play. I found that wedging a screwdriver between the plastic housing and the speaker body would make the speaker play. I used a small nail (like a trim nail for small trim) and wedged it between the speaker and the housing, then trimmed off the excess of the nail.

This solution is not ideal, but it was relatively quick and worked to keep the unit functioning for now. I imagine that there is some sort of connection that has failed internally in the speaker, and that wedging it has (at least temporarily) reformed the connection. I imagine that a new speaker could be installed with some work to remove the old speaker, and then a new one soldered in and glued into place.

Once I got the speaker working, I disconnected the battery and carefully replaced the power button, then the two halves simply snapped back together. I replaced the screws and reinstalled the battery, and all has been working as it should. The case does show some damage from my prying, and it doesn\'t fit as tightly as it used to with the broken snaps, but it does hold together and doesn\'t have any issues in normal use.

In all, it certainly beat buying a whole new unit, especially since it was working just fine other than the sound. Good luck!

How do you get the RX icon to turn off? The unit just has a contant fuzzy buzz.

RX represents "receive" This indication will be present whenever the speaker is producing audio. The "buzz" you're talking about is probably static, and is technically audio from the speaker. To silence the "buzz" adjust the squelch just until the speaker falls silent. The RX indication should be off at this point.

It is important to note that the squelch is designed to keep the speaker silent until a signal is detected. You adjust the squelch based on the level of static at a particular time and at a particular location. The static level may change depending on those variables. If you adjust the squelch well beyond the point that the speaker is silenced, you may not be able to hear transmissions or calls to you unless the caller's transmitter is physically close to you. This is why the squelch should be adjusted only until the static is stopped and the speaker is silenced.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I have Philips AVENT DECT baby monitor , the problem is the screen of the parent item was broken i can't see anything but we can hear and talk from it How can i fix the screen again ? Thanks in...

Hi ghadah83,

Doesn't appear there is a fix for a 'broken screen,' however, you may want to visit the Philips Support Site to look further into your issue:

You can also reach Consumer Care by calling 1-800-542-8368. Below is an FAQ that might help, too.

Why does my parent unit not turn on when I place it on the charging base? Answer

Your battery may be flat. It may take up to 1 hour before you can use your baby monitor again. If this happens, we recommend that you fully recharge your battery before use.

Hope this helps. Let me know by rating this solution. Thanks!

Angle care wont connect to the base

Had same problem - here's what worked for AC401 (from manual):
CONNECTING THE PARENTS UNIT TO THE NURSERY UNIT: If you lose the connection between the 2 units,turn them both off. Turn ON the parents unit and press and hold the MENU button ,the "out of range"indicator will flash and you will hear a beep.Turn ON the nursery unit and press and hold the top button of the nursery unit to reconnect. The Tic light flashes.This normally happens within a few seconds and you will hear a bleep to confirm it. If successful, the parents unit display will first show the channel of transmission (C1 to C8), which will be replaced by the room temperature and icons for all activated functions.

Can you use it just as a monitor? want to hear conversation or in other room like a baby monitor

It is not practical to use a handheld radio for a monitor. However, in a pinch any radio with VOX (voice activation) can be used as a monitor as long as there is no other ambient noise in the room. We have been unable to locate an online manual for the FR60, so we are not certain if it offers the VOX feature. If you have your manual you can look for it.

FYI: What you CANNOT do is permanently or short-term depress the push-to-talk button. So do not try taping it down to simulate a baby monitor. This will only result in damaging the radio's power amplifier.

Baby monoitor reciever piking up no sound or delayed sound - link light flashing

A delay may be caused by interference from other radio sources. I heard of one case where a woman's cell phone call overpowered the transmit power of her baby monitor.

Other things that can cause interference or other receiver problems:
1. monitor in contact or close proximity to running appliances or their cords. (induced electromagnetic field)
2. neighbor with baby monitor on same channel ('cross-talk')
3. distance between transmitter and receiver too far (the strength of a radio signal fall dramatically over larger distances. think of how often you lose cell phone coverage)
4. reduced power: low battery strength or cooked power supply
5. transmitter or receiver insulated from signal (if your monitor was transmitting/receiving through any metal obstruction)
