That's mod needs to be done by a radio shop. Try to find a decent on. Not just any cb shop. They shouldn't charge any more than $25 for that mod. We are in TX.

Check power leads inside of radio, "usually red and black" right off the leads there should be a black diode "shorts" if wires have been hooked up backwards, also check for an open foil on the printed circuit board.

If no power, check the red and black wires inside the radio, there should be a black diode right is near the leads often shorts if wires are hooked up backwards, also look for an open foil on the printed circuit board.

Turn the BAND knob (under the RF power selector switch) in conjunction with the High Low selector switch to choose band A, B, C and in the other position D, E, F. A listing of frequencies that can be tuned in this manner can be found by clicking the link below:


A few words of caution.. the FCC takes a very dim view of unauthorized use of frequencies. The only range of frequencies that you can legally use without an FCC issued license (in the U.S. anyway) are those in Range D. If caught transmitting on any of the other frequencies without the proper license(s) fines and imprisonment may result. No one ever expects to get caught - but plenty do. If you'd like to gain the use the 28Mhz and up frequencies, check out:


Amateur radio is not shackled by channels, power limits less than 1500 watts nor limited to AM and SSB modes. Check it out! Good luck!

It sounds like an cold solder joint if the radio has set unused for a period it could be a electrolytic capacitor. After this condition reappears preferably on the bench remove the solder side cover an gently press on the pcb board with a no conductive objected a pencil with the eraser contacting the board a low light area might reveal a spark if your luck.
Remove power from radio and turn volume know on then off. If you are handy with a soldering iron i would use silver rosin core solder and a 35 watt max soldering iron and solder ******. Now with care tighted the pcb board screws and retouch the solder in the crystal area look around the board for corrision or dull colored solder this can but does no always indicate a cold solder joint. Just a tip dont just remelt solder add a little the rosin flux allows the solder to flow. As temped as you may be do not resolder the long ic chips they are very easily damaged by heat. Good Luck an i hope this was of help.

  • Hi, I can help.

  • If you never popped the cover (they can tell) then this should covered by the 1 year warranty. As for what happened, well you would have to pop the bottom off and look for the smoked part and get a schematic and replace the smoked parts and go from there. Anything could have happened to be honest. Most likely a resister fried like a cockroach.

  • I would contact the place you got the radio from and explain what happened. Talk to them about the warranty fix. If you run into roadblock and you want to fix it yourself then put up some detailed pics of the inside of the bottom side (non soldier side) of the circuit board so I can see what smoked out on your board.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony
