I had this intermittant problem of my receiver not working. The meter showed a signal there, but no audio. I could turn it off then back on and it would work for a while. I looked around for help and found that this problem was not uncommon for this radio.

Simple fix.

Remove the bottom cover (with the front facing away from you). In the top right-hand corner there is a audio IC with 5 legs sticking out. I re-soldered all 5 legs and that fixed it.. Simple..

And just think, I was about to send the radio in for repair at $84/hr..

Thanks to WB7DJ

    Sorry to hear you troubles, he is famous around here for his scams.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
