Rf power output fail test on my cobra 29 lx
' Move the antenna angled forward ' Freightliner cascadias have powered driver and pass windows plus a thermostat inside the mirror arm ,The motors and electrical wires produce a EMF bubble that will disfigure the RF and absorb the energy. If you mounted the antenna to the mirrors arm with a bracket, just keep pushing it forward untill it passes the test.

Partial rx\tx stuck on a micro talk Cobra handheld
I am not sure just what is stuck, the button or the switch itself. If it is the button, try swabbing it with a Qtip soaked in Isopropyl alcohol to loosen any grease or dirt that may be causing the problem. You might want to open the case and remove the guts, being careful not to break any wires. If the button can be removed, clean it thoroughly and put the thing back together.
If the switch is shot, then you probably should just purchase another radio. Unless you are a micro surgeon, you probably won't be able to replace the switch yourself. A new radio is less expensive than taking yours to a shop for repair.

No good receive on cobra 142 gtl base
What is the swr? This can impact the receiver. However, the tuning coils for receive and transmit are close to each other and someone most likely turned the receive coil instead of the transmit coil. The coils that are adjustable that affect receive are 13, 15 and 3. 3 is the coil that is close to the transmit section. You may want to have it realigned.
