Question about Cobra Microtalk 100 FRS Walkie Talkie Radios 2 Pack

1 Answer

Can't turn it off

These are old, never used, a gift from 2004. Black with orange trim. The "power" button seems always depressed, and I can't turn them off, so they kill the batteries.

Programming mode


Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.banoggle.com/Products/Motorola/manuals/CLS-series-manual.pdf

A description of programming begins on page 28. The programming of this style unit can seem like you need a third hand to accomplish. Start with the radio turned OFF. Hold the PTT (push-to-talk) and the MON (monitor) buttons in while turning on the radio. Continue to hold both buttons in until the series of beeps stops. You are then in programming mode.

If you do not get the series of beeps, you may not have one of the buttons depressed. If after several attempts you do not get into programming mode, you may have a problem with one of the buttons, or a low/defective battery.

Best regards.

Cobra MicroTalk. Model No. PR155. Will not turn on. No problem with the battery.


Here is the deal people! Easy fix. When you depress the on/off button on the walkies, keep the button depressed for 3 or 4 seconds. It will power up. The reason why you have to depress the button for a few seconds is because the button has more than one function. Hope this is the solution.

On the binatone walkie talkies (black and orange) how do you get the lock off? Thanks


It's difficult to answer without knowing which model, I know the Marina 300 came in black and orange however a few others have also had that colour variant. To remove the keylock from the Marina 300 you PRESS AND HOLD THE MENU BUTTON UNTIL THE KEY ICON DISAPPEARS. Note: The PTT, Call and Power will remain functional when keylock is on.

Yaesu Ft-50 hard to turn on


The rubber power button is impregnated with carbon and when pressed, it makes contact with two points on the printed circuit board, turning on the radio. This button eventually wears out and needs to be replaced, which is a rather easy process.

I've performed the operation four times - takes about 15 minutes. The button is available from Yaesu.

I also tried "repair kits" for these buttons which are supposed to replace the conductive surface. Both times, they failed again within a couple of weeks.

The upside is the new button is not as quite as tall as the original and requires depressing it below the surface of the case to switch, which prevents accidently turning off the radio.

Good luck, and 73

Motorola CP200, radio just beeps when im pressing any button.


It is possible your radio is not programmed, or has a bad/old battery.

It is normal for the side buttons 1 and 2 to beep when depressed to indicate you turned the feature on/off. Each of these buttons has the ability to be programmed a long and a short press feature.

If your radio beeps when your press the PTT button, on any or all channels, it indicates a low or nearly dead battery. Check your battery date code to see if the battery needs replaced.

If your radio emits a long tone on a channel, that channel is not programmed to function.

If your radio beeps a single beep when you turn it on, this is normal.

Charge your radio completely overnight, with the radio turned off. See if this solves the problem. If not, try a new/different battery to see if it will solve the issue. If not, drop by your local dealer and let them look at the unit.

Radios dont recieve from each other..


The buttons you are referring to are programmable buttons, and it would depend on how they are programmed. In most cases depressing the buttons will not change the radio in such a way you could not communicate. When changes are made, they are changed back to normal by shutting the radio off and turning it back on. See page four of the owners manual.

You might want to read the section on the light on the radio on page 3. It may help.

Here is a copy of the owners manual: http://www.motorola.com/governmentandenterprise/contentdir/en_GB/Files/ProductInformation/6864110B13A_GP340_BUG_Multilingual.pdf

Other questions which come to mind: Have you changed antennas recently? Have you tried the radios together on all channels? Have you tried the radios in a different area? Have the radios been reprogrammed recently? Do you use a repeater? If so, the repeater may be not working or malfunctioning, or you are out of range, check with your service provider.

It sound like one of this radios is out of frequency, basically need service to determ what exactly is wrong. When one of the radios is out of freq, basically mean that the radio is not receiving or transmitting where suppose to.
