Hi,

Assuming no hardware faults, start with the basics, on powering on the radio:
1. RG Gain max clockwise;
2. Ch 9/NOR to Normal;
3. Delta Tune to mid position;
4. CB/PA to CB;
5. Squelch to minimum counter clockwise;
6. Channel selector to desired channel.

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.

Have the SWR or match on the system checked, high match does not mean a bad antenna but can be a open or short in the system for the antenna.

You will need an SWR meter to check your antenna. FIRST.
I would find help at a local cb shop.. They SHOULDN"T CHARGE to help you SET the swr. only if you need a part or something ..
I don't charge to SET SWR"s .. only if the cust needs a insulating washer or another antenna, or new coax, so-239 etc... I would be glad to help you.. let me know if we can -- CB Shop Temple, TX

How to match a antenna to a cobra 29 LTD Classic


You are actually tuning the antenna to the vehicle it is mounted on here are some very good resources. http://www.rightchannelradios.com/pages/cb-antenna-tuning-guide-pv-c0-61.htmlhttp://www.wilsonantenna.com/swr.php

Be aware that if your radio has been modified it may produce a dirt signal that an swr meter may read as reflected power. In this case it may be more accurate set with a unmodified radio also if your radio is setup for a linear it may have a deadkey to low for the swr meter to calibrate correctly.
Hope this was of help.

Cobra 29 ltd Classic no sound, no rx, all lights work rx,tx, lite up. The SWR meter moves when mic is keyed up.


Check speaker and plug external one in if you have it.

swap mic could be a broke wire or bad switch in handset.

check antenna and coax connections.

i know checks sound basic but they could save you a lot of headaches later

Have Cobra 29 LTD Classic, no sound when hooked to antenna, no light or meter movement on the RF/SWR meter, DOES have power to radio and channel display, any tips to repair, or check for problem areas?


check the squelch by turning all the way both ways. check the external speaker socket. if it is the swicthing type it could be either bad conntact or dry joints. try an external speaker to see if that works. another thing is I believe it wont work if the microphone is not pluged in or connection fault there. Good luck.

Cobra 29 ltd wont transmit until warmed up for a few minutes. audio is fine, just no power out the antenna jack and not showing any on the meter on the face of radio.


Take the cover off, then hook it back up,take a pencil with the eraser end,go around the circuit board pressing down while you are keyed up, and notice the meter, see if it goes up, sounds like you have a cold solder joint, take a ohm meter and check the finals, replace them useing heat sink compound,....enjoy..... hope this helps....

Cant recive from than 100 ft away new antennae still nothing


I suggest that the radio needs to be realigned to receive. If the radio has been dropped or banged in any manner this could have caused your problem.

Start with the antenna that you have hooked to it, is it grounded, is the coax in good shape, is the connector in good shape. stuff like that.
