Question about Cobra 29 LTD CB Radio

3 Answers

Cobra 29 NW LTD does nothing

I was recently given this radio from a friend of mine. He bought the radio new about 2 months before. The radio worked fine. He took the radio to a local CB shop to get some extras added on. As far as I know he had talkback added, a meter that changes colors, and he had it tuned up. When he got it back it did nothing at all. So he gave it to me. Is there anything that I should check out.

Yes, take it back to the cb shop. If they are a reputable shop, they will stand behind their work.

I own a shop and have always stood behind my work 100%. Once I went so far as to buy a brand new Magnum S-3 to replace a used one for a customer that one was messed up doing a power modification that should not have been done on that radio. I came to find out that the company I bought the mod kit from didn't know what they were doing and had the instructions wrong. I still have the broken radio to prove it.

Why do you have to fix it? If the local CB shop looked at it last then take it back to them its their problem.

Depending on the model, the Silverado may have an amplifier between the OEM radio and the speakers. If that is the case, you will have to remove it and wire directly to the speakers. Check the wiring schematics for the original truck radio option (one source is Alldatadiy.com).

We have a Haier DVD101B dvd player that won't work now...


At least you got 6 months of use out of yours, which is 6 months more than I got out of mine. I took mine out of the box and it would not even turn on. When I called the manufacturer, they said they could not help me at all. I bought it for my daughter to take to college, and I guess it is just going to go in the trash.

Blackberry curve 8300 no signal only sos.


I took it to the original operator who checked the imei ,and they told me the data package was cancelled because the phone was under a business plan of 2 years and someone unlocked the phone so they blacklisted it.

Now I have to make a new contract and all will be resolved.

Thanks hope this helps.

I have a starmate2 replay and what has happened is i turn it on and it stay on the title screen thats it.None of the buttons will work on it only the power button to shut it off.Please help


Three months ago I had the same problem. My wife paid over $300 for the radio, the portable boom-box and subscription less than 2 years ago.
Sirius offered no help or discount on a new radio. Guess they follow the Microsoft doctrine because they suggested I upgrade to a new radio.

Anyhow, feeling frustrated, I took the receiver apart, thinking that a stray voltage on an IC ping maybe causing the problem. It was only a guess. I don't even have a wiring diagram At any rate, once I had it apart, I used a small flathead screw driver and drug it (lightly) across all IC pins, possibly in an effort to drain the voltage. Please do this in a low static area.

When I put everything back together, the receiver worked. It's been working good the up until about 2 weeks ago, when the same problem began again. I just finished the same process and the receiver is working again.

I don't advocate this for anyone who doesn't know how to handle electronics.

I'm just very disappointed in Sirius for not admitting the problem and providing no discount for a newer model. I have a $10 clock radio that's 9 years old. Guess what, I don't have to take it apart every three months to keep it working.
