Lets hope its a loose or disconnected wire. If it's not it is possible you have a hair line crack in the board, which is a pain to fix.

Check all the wires going to the front panel of the radio. Pay close attention to the wires that go to the switch for CB/PA mode. If one of the wires comes disconnected, then it may be stuck in limbo between PA mode and CB mode.

If there are no loose wires, and there is a break in the board, then the only way to fix it is to find what traces are broke and solder jumpers past the breaks. It's a bit of work to find all the problem points.

Also, Inspect all the solder joints on the trace side of the board for cold solder joints. I would go over them and make sure all of the solder points are fully soldered.

Got a galaxy dx 949 mobile trying to wire a older d-104 to it and it dosent sound right its not got the mod it needs. thanks

Hello twelch,
Welcome to FixYa.
My name is John, and I will be assisting you with your issue today.
If it is the old four(4) wire mic, the wiring will be as follows:
Pin #1. Shield (Ground)
Pin #2. White (Audio)
Pin #3. Red (Transmit)
Pin #4. Black (Recieve)
If it is a SIX (6) wire! The Blue would go to Pin #1. with the Shield, and the Yellow
has no connection. I hope this was helpful to you. Your Comments and Testimony's are
always welcome here at FixYa. Thanks for choosing FixYa today and in the future.
