Question about Cobra 200 GTL DX 4-Channels Base CB Radio

200 GTL DX Night glow face plate.

Hi I'm new here, but I was wondering if any one has had a problem with the night glow face plate getting dimmer, even when the dim switch is on high. Is there any bulletin out on this problem that you know of one wire? This is one of the main reasons I bought this radio, was for the lighted face plate. Many thanks...... Icepick 73

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 .

SOURCE: talkback on a cobra 200 gtl dx

This procedure is not as simple as just cutting a wire. Note that you can possibly mess your radio up if any maintenace is not done properly. I do suggest taking your radio to a proffesional to have the talkback removed, but, if you really want to do it yourself, go to ghe following link and basically reverse what has been done.

http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/cobra/150gtl_dx/tsb/cobra_200gtl_dx_tsb_10041.pdf

This is the service bulletin for the addition of talkback to the Cobra 150GTL DX and the Cobra 200GTL DX.

As long as the talkback was added correctly, this can be put back origional.

If this does or does not help, please reply on here or email me at rollincbmods@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Egor, hi. I'm sure there is a mod probably only known by the repair centers. I have converted and tuned the 200, but in case you don't know, the radio is full of surface mount components. They look like specks of pepper to the naked eye, and so it takes a tech with years of soldering experience to do any modding without destroying what their working on. Those radios are not a friendly radio for experimenting. I looked thru my papers that Cobra tech support sent me for converting, tuning, and other misc. mods but that info was not included. It is a nice radio when set up properly, so don't mess it up by experimenting.(just my opinion) Hope this helps,,and good luck, Mechanic

My name is kyle my cobra 200gtl face"nightwatch"plate went out.. yes i had it tested.. the cb shop say he dosn't have any in stock.. where can i get one?


You can check out e-bay. I have seen them on there. You can Google Cobra200 GTL Night Watch faceplate this though. I have done this before. Google CB shop. Don't matter where they are and see if they have a 200 GTL Night Watch face plates (both pieces) in a parts radio laying around. You may be surprised. Let me ask this, what went out on the faceplate? The cord or the leds? You can buy leds that change just like that on the net and simply replace them. Good luck to you. They are pretty radios and who can go wrong with Cobra?

Hi, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. Please, do not attempt to tune these pots with anything but the right tool. Doing this will damage the pot and you will have to replace it. Use a plastic tool that's right for the job, but I have used a wooden match trimmed off. the pots are RV9, RV12. Thanks for choosing FixYa....John

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 ****.

Cobra 200gtl night watch went out. worst case... how much to fix. thanx


You need to order the part from cobra, and then take the face off and replace it. I don't know about availability of the part.

Some times its a pain in the but to pull the face apart. Have to pull the knobs off. Take the covers off. un screw the face and any other screws holding it in place. Then you need to unsolder the wires from the old part, and solder on the one from the new part, then put it back together.

Gtl dx will not transmit below 26.955


First off, the 200 GTL DX is a 10 meter radio. Running it on 11 meters (CB) is illegal, as it is not FCC type accepted. If you go below 26.965 mhz, you are outside of the 11 meter band, and operating illegally.12 meters does not start until 24.930, so ultimately, the freq's between 24.930 and 26.965 mhz are restricted even to a licensed amateur radio operator.

Could the battery be dead? Other than that, it may be a bad solder joint inside the mic.

No output


If you antenna SWR are way out ( too high ) you may have burrned the final or driver up when you hooked it up to do the antenna adjustment. Also be sure to turn the high power switch on to adjust the antenna SWR or the SWR meter won't read correctly, if the RF power is too low. Good Luck
