Hello gc0273,

Make sure that both radios are using the same Interference Eliminator Code. The situation you describe sounds like one radio has a Interfernce Eliminator Code activated and the other radio does not.

To access the Interfence Eliminator Code setting on this radio press and hold the MENU button until the code starts to flash, then use the + or - keys to adjust the setting and press the PTT to save it.

Best Regards

SOURCE: Constant RX mode on Cobra Microtalk Walke Talke

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

SOURCE: Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving

To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

Are you sure that the batteries are running well?
Try using alkaline batteries just for testing.

Both phones are displaying out of range please advise


Walkie talkies talk to each other. Try transmitting (talk to each other) so they receive a signal first. Do it in the same room. The try for range. It is not much. Even for a GMRS radio, these are low power and short range. Under 2 miles, must be able to "see" each other.

My Midland walkie talkie quits transmitting about 3 seconds after I start transmitting


It is more likely a power issue. PTT switches do not normally cause a short circuit. Check the batteries, swap the batteries and see if that helps. Radios take a great deal more power to transmit than turn on or receive. If not the battery, try a low voltage battery, such as a cordless phone battery. If it still occurs, check your warrany and send it back to the factory.

One of my walkie talkie has an RX on the display and you can send but you cannot hear the other person. How can I remove the RX as that seems to be the only difference in them. Thank you


depending on what radio you have, they are programmed in different ways, rx means recieve signal

and tx means transmit signal, if you have a mode button, you will have to scroll through it until you

get to the menu that allows you to change the radio transmission. it looks like that radio is only

programmed to receive signals and not transmit. good luck!

My roadtrip cobra cb won't talk with my midland gxt radios


What midland is it? if its a gmrs 2 way radio, like a walkie talkie, even tho it has 40 channels, it is not a CB. it transmits on a completely different band.

CB is in the 27mhz band, and gmrs is in the 462 MHZ band.

They will not talk to each other.

Walkie talkies will talk but not recieve


My experience has been that you are probably on the wrong subchannel on the one that cannot receive.

  • may be the walkie talkie can recieve signals only to an certain distance,so it may be due to the signal problem........
  • if the reciever is beyond the permitted distance it loose its frequency...........
  • or else the person who is calling walkie talkie might not hav signal in that area.....

T5900 Walkie Talkie Issue


Hello Bo Duke,

If one radio won't walk to the other my guess if that you have the Privacy Code function set up incorrectly.

The privacy code function mutes the radio unless it receives a signal from another radio transmitting the same privacy code. If Privacy Codes are turned on for Radio A but not turned on for Radio B then you will be able to transmit from Radio A to Radio B but not from Radio B to Radio A. If Privacy Codes are turned on for both radios but each unit is set to a different code then neither radio will be able to talk to the other.

Make sure that the radios are both set to the same privacy code or that the privacy code function is turned off on both radios. You can find more information on how this function is set in the radio's Owner's Manual.

Hope this helps!
