Constant RX mode on Cobra Microtalk Walke Talke

I use walkie talkies in my business and I have a couple that constantly have the receive mode on. Anytime yoy try to transmit from one of them or from any other of the walkie talkies, it transmits a loud static until you push a button. The only thing different on them from the others that don't do this is that on the left side, the RX is constantly on. I can't figure out how to get it off.

    Thanks for the help, but unfortunately this did not fix the walkie talkie. The problem is that the RX symbol is constantly on the screen and anytime someone tries to communicate to it or from it, all it does is transmit static.

    Any suggestion?


    Thank you

I have the same walkie talkies and on mine I can hold down the mode/lock button and it will come off of the Rx mode. Also, you should be able to press the talk button and it will come off of the Rx mode.

Hello CleanRightCo,

Many two-way radios have a Monitor function that disables the squelch control. The squelch is what keeps the radios quiet when they are not receiving an incoming signal. However the squelch feature can also cause weak signals to cut out and not be understood, so the Monitor function provides a way to disable the squelch in those circumstances. It sounds like you have the Monitor enabled / squelch disabled on the units that you hear constant static.

For the Cobra MicroTalk 4100 it appears that you enable the monitor by holding down the Light/Max Range button for 5 seconds until the radio beeps twice. You may have activated this function inadvertently. To disable the monitor and re-enable squelch simply press the Light/Max Range button again or change channels.

If this doesn't fix the problem there may be a problem with the auto squelch function on the radios. Or the channel you are operating on may have a noise level that is above the radio's squelch level. You can try changing channels. Or another possible solution would be to activate the CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) on all the radios. This function will mute the radio's receiver unless a signal is received from another unit using he same CTCSS code. This should keep the units quiet regardless of the noise level on the channel. However all the radios MUST be set to the same CTCSS code or they will not be able to communicate with each other.

Best Regard

Why are callers getting a busy and then "service is restricted" message when they call me?


Its not the phone you have a dead short in one of your phone jacks. Call you phone provider and have them run the short down. If you have VOIP or service from a cable modem plug the base straight into the Tel1 plug in the back of the modem.

Hi, I purchased two units of logitech cordless


Your friend should be able to use the headset if your friend's computer has Bluetooth feature. THe computer will send and receive the Bluetooth signals with one transmitter/receiver like your computer does and then connect to the wireless lan with a different transmitter/receiver system on a different frequency. Just make sure your friend's computer has Bluetooth feature turned on and then setup the headset by the "pairing" process.

after you have paired the two devices... the blackberry that is receiving the file has to be in receiving mode.

Go to MEDIA or music icon on your handheld where all of your tones are, hit the menu key and choose "receive using bluetooth" then hit send on the other handheld.

and there ya go !!!

its just another added security feature by RIM to avoid unwanted stuff being transferred .
