Hi, A couple of switches and knobs you can check (if present in your rig): 1. auto noise/noise blanker switch - try off position; 2. dynamic squelch control - lower down setting; 3. RF gain - should be at max (clockwise); and 4. Delta Tune - normally should be centered. Hope this works out for you and give you an idea where to start. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

No sound unless the other person on the cb is close to me the further apart the lower the sound goes until its gone less than a mile apart

I hope you matched your CB radio in with the antenna. Most CB radios are good for about 5 miles without having a linear. Extra Power Source }

Schematic for pc78xL won,t turn on

there gould be a number of reasons for it not turning on but the one I am thinking of is the reverse polarity diode. If it is burnt your radio will not turn on look in the area of your where your power wires come in .You should see a single black zenner diode.Replace it and it should turn on .
