Question about Cobra MicroTalk PR 1100 WX (15 Channels) 2-Way Radio
I bought a pair of Cobra Microtalk PR 650 WX from Wal-mart today.....charged them up, and tried to turn them on to test them. According to the owner's manual, there's supposed to be a set on tones to indicate that the units are on, which never sounded. The display works fine, channel selection works fine, etc. But, they won't transmit nor recieve. I bought these for an upcoming trip, the package is way beyond damaged so I can't talke them back to Wal-Mart...Help!!
I had to replace some of the cheap Chinese NiCad batteries to get mine to work. Check them all with a voltmeter, they should be at least 1.1 volts DC.

Im not sure if this radios can work with alkaline batteries like AAA or AA type, this will focus the problem in the batteries or in the charger

Double check against all the instructions - in particular, make sure the batteries are charged according to "before first use" spec, that the volume is turned up, and that the squelch (if fitted and not automatic) is adjusted properly. If it still doesn't work, take it back to Wal-Mart. If the product doesn't work, there's no need for the packaging to be in good condition - it's not as if they'll be needing it to resell the goods to anybody else. A.
