The problem that you discribe, sounds weird, check if the radio battery connectors are clean, if the radios are new, I think you must to cliam the warranty.

Can any body help I just bought a cobra 29lxeu multi standard radio is there a problem with the receive on these radios as had this radio hooked up to my homebase antenna on my homebase im...

What you describe is not standard for this radio. It should receive as good as any of the others you have. Are you sure you have all the knobs and switches set right. This radio is more complicated to operate than the previous versions. I personally do not operate one of the new LXs but I do seem to recall they have a RF Gain knob. This should be turned clockwise all the way. Look through the manual. You will be surprised and some of the features the radio has you didn't know about.

I bought a cobra radio with a $30.00 rebait. I sent the rebait in the next day and on the rebait it says to allow 6 weeks for your check to be return to the customer. It has been 6 months and after buying...

Hi Paul,

Have you been in touch with the place where you purchased it from?

If , so and no joy, you should still have a copy of your purchase receipt with you, and you should file a complaint with the small claims court to retrieve your money.

I hope this helps you out, and buy a brand like Icom or Kenwood, they may cost more, but quality and customer service is worth the price.

One of my Cobra Microtalk radios is stuck on RX. Everything else seems to work. What could be the problem?


Almost always, the problem here is that the micro switch for the Push-to-Talk (PTT) button has failed. Your radio should have a warranty, but even if the warranty has run out, it isn't horribly spendy to fix. I'd get in touch with Cobra Electronics, I have heard they're extremely helpful. Try this link and good luck!

I have an cobra 200, on both high an low frequencies im losing out put power, not able to get out past 2 miles. checked all connections an aireal. how do you peak an tune. cannot find anyone willing to...

The first place to look when you can only get out no more than two miles is your ground plane. To check this, use a multimeter and do an resistance check between the antenna mount and multiple points on your vehicle. This is a common problem on mobile units.

Schematics for a cobra 148 NW

Most units do NOT allow modulation adjustment as any more than 90-100% modulation causes adjacent channel signal "Splatter" therefore is subject to restrictions, hence generally that is locked. Also there really is no reason to have more than 100% well ... why? I would suggest a voice/speech "Compressor" would be more suited.

Constant RX mode on cobra microtalk PR3850WX

Sounds like the radio was subjected to electrostatic discharge. If you have your manual, and it describes a way to do a "master reset" on the radio, follow the instructions. This usually involves pushing down on one key while turning the radio on. Otherwise you have to find a licensed dealer for factory service, as there is no way to repair the radio yourself. The use of surface mount technology still confuses many Techs unless they have been to a company's two or three week seminars.
