cobra 29 lx

I bought this cb used about a year ago and havent had any problems with it until now. I can hear everybody clearly but when I go to talk nothing is heard. My brother hears a break in the static but no voice at all. I dont even hear myself on the talk back. Any ideas on what I should try?

Sounds like a bad microphone, try disconnecting then reconnecting its microphone connector and see what happens. That's one of Cobra's higher-end radios so if the mic is bad, odds are good you will be able to find a replacement. Even some truck stops carry CB mics.

I have the same one and there are better microphones out there that will just plug right into the back.

Like the others said, most likely a bad Mic. Any standard 4 pin Mic should work. I use a Roadking 56 noise cancelling Mic on my Cobra 29.
