Re: i have a ranger rci 2970n2 that needs repair does...
Stay away from cb shops.. Only let the manufacturer service it.. Your 2970n2 has a fragile and tempermental amp built it with the 8x irf520n mosfets in it.. You will have problems if its tuned up to do more than 200-225 watts pep..

i have the same radio rci 2950. Ive had the same problem with mine,turns out with mine the processor would lock up,turning the radio off & on repeadly would clear the problem and the radio would work fine x-mit & recieve. the solution to fixing the problem is to replace the memory backup battery this battery works similar to a computer motherboard cmos battery when this battery goes dead all sorts of strange things happen to the radio wont transmit wont recieve or like your problem transmits continiously. the problem with replacing this battery is finding out what year & model your ranger 2950 is. the internet says only first generation ranger 2950s use the battery second genration & third generation do not use the battery. but the internet could be wrong. so i suggest getting a hold of (usa ranger.com) & give them a phone call or email and ask them about the year your radio was made. they may even service it for you or if you are electronic savvy you can do it yourself. the battery is located close to the main cpu on the front panel if yours uses a battery.
Hopefully it's as easy as this carefully take the cover with the speaker in it off and look to make sure the speaker wire with the plug is plugged into the two prongs sticking up in the back right side corner it is a very tight fit though.Good luck Dan
