Cobra microtalk will not charge


this is the sign of a damaged or dead battery pack. they can be rebuilt at Batteries Plus or replaced. I would also try alkaline batteries in the radio before spending money on new battery packs. Most rechargeable battery packs must be kept charged regularly, and should be fully discharged before recharging, or they will be damaged and end up with a limited lifespan. IF you are handy with a multimeter you can check to see that the charger is putting voltage out by placing the probes on the contacts while it is plugged in. especially if the cord is twisted or looks stretched, but generally it is the battery not the charger.

Your RAdio Shack store can help you order one. You can use the black holder, but cannot recharge batteries in the radio.

My pro 39 scanner loses memory after unplugged for 24 hrs..Question: is there a memory storage battery inside unit..


Here's a link to your radio's manual. Make sure the rechargeable batteries are able to accept a full charge. If they have been recharged more than a couple of hundred times, they may need to be replaced.

Pay attention to which jacks your are powering the radio through. The PWR and CHG jacks perform some similar, but very different functions.

The AC or DC adapter can be connected to the CHG jack when you wish listen to the radio (and recharge at the same time) ONLY when NiCad batteries are installed (or to simply recharge the NiCad batteries with the radio off). Recharging with the radio off will allow the batteries to recharge fastest (10 - 18 hrs).

As per the manual, you should not connect a power source to the CHG jack if using anything other than NiCad batteries in the radio, as they will heat up and could explode, instead connect to the PWR jack whenever using regular, non-rechargeable batteries.

Batterys wont hold a charge


It's never a good idea to ship a scanner (or anything else) with the batteries installed, as you never know what the package might experience enroute. About all you can do is replace the rechargeables with fresh NiMH batteries. If they don't take or hold a good charge you need to contact the company that "fixed" the scanner.

Pro 97 Handheld - Adapter Issue


I have the same problem with my pro-79 scanner. The adapter from my Uniden cordless phone works on my scanner, but then the phone won''t work.
I have rechargeable batteries but they don't stay charged very long in the scanner. I know this didn't solve your problem but thought I would let you know about the cordless phone adapter.
