Make sure all power wires attached Red to Hot(+) if yellow also to(+) Black (-) ground. If that don't do it, take apart radio, get solder pencil at Radio Shack--Carefully solder all little connections on channel selector board near Channel knob. Just reheat them or add tiny amount of solder(with power off of course).

Galaxy 88hl frequency display only has decimal point, channel readout fine


on the face plate is a button for the counter ,try pushing it several times to see if the dot moves. As long as the channel display is reading the correct channel you should be ok but you want to correct this problem . If you can't correct it contact Galaxy and they will have a tech talk to you.

The lights on the front of my nightwatch is not working but the rest is the meter and channels light up and the dimmer works just the backlighting wont whats the problem thanks


  • That Night Watch face plate is AC ran by a converter inside the radio. The LEDS are part of the face plate and sold as one unit. The face plate goes out often on these radios. In short the face plate needs replaced if you want it to light up. The radio's performance will not be effected by this. Cobra can actually switch that out fairly cheap. Cheaper than buying a face plate used on the net.

I have A cobra 29 NW ST and the illuminated panel is not lighting up. Does anyone know how to repair this?


is it bubbled up? would need a new el face plate, and maybe a new power inverter.. the inverters on those radios do not always work correctly and will short out the el face plate.

Where do you oil this machine -- it's not in the owner's manual.


Welcome to FixYa! on the list below is the steps to oil your sewing machine.

  1. Remove the screw from the top of the Janome face plate with a small flathead screwdriver. The face plate is on the top of the sewing machine directly above the needle.

  2. Pull the face plate up and away from the sewing machine gently.

  3. Face the sewing machine as if you were about to start sewing.

  4. Locate a small cylinder attached to the side of the sewing machine facing you that had been covered by the face plate. Apply one or two drops of oil to the top of this cylinder.

  5. Locate a small square that is directly above the needle of the machine, also previous hidden by the face plate. Apply one or two drops of oil directly above and below this square.

  6. Replace the face plate and tighten the screw.

  7. Open the hook cover of the sewing machine as if you were changing the bobbin. This area is located directly under the needle.

  8. Remove the bobbin case by grasping the lever on the case and gently pulling the case out from the machine.

  9. Remove the hook ring and the hook. These two parts are behind the bobbin case and should come out easily.

  10. Apply one drop of oil to the center of the hole the bobbin was removed from.

  11. Replace all of the parts you removed from the sewing machine.

Good luck

How do you change the face plate,


Its a time consuming job. A lot of little screws, and parts that have to come off to get it out.

It's a pain in the ****.

Just hooked up my cobra cb radio with attena and cant hear anyone on any channel? is my cb working properly? is there a channel that is always hot to test if it works?


CB channel 19 is one of the most frequently used; it is unofficially designated as a "highway information" channel. It is not always hot, however. It is possible you may have your squelch control set too high. If you cannot even hear static, this may be the case. If you can, the channel may just be empty. Try scanning up and down the band until you find something.

I have a non-lighting Cobra 29 NW face plate, or EL Driver problem . EL Driver is the small metal box mounted inside, to the side, of the the Cobra 29 near the channel selector control . Can anyone tell me...


that is a power inverter. dc to ac inverter. 13-14volts to 40+ volts ac. to run the el display.. if the display is pulled away from the face like the glue is coming loose that indicates the el display is burnt and will not work unless replace the face plate the el face.. you should have 45volts AC on the two wires feeding into the main chassis face to the el display.

200 GTL DX Night glow face plate.


Icepick , there are diode in the radio to allow the voltage to flow to get those lights glowing. If the voltage is not at a specific level then you may have the problem you are describing. make sure you have 13.8 volts of power coming into the radio then check you voltage on T712 to make sure the voltage is ok also IC 5 . Check diodes 68 , 69, 71,72 for correct voltage . now you need a voltage chart. You will have to google it .

NO sound


Make sure the switch is in the CB position. If this is so, then you may have a bad switching transistor or a bad diode in the board. Also on some of the weather band cobras I have worked on in the past, I have found bad pll chips. Good Luck
