CDM 1550 audio problem

Postby radiocat37 » Tue Jul 18, 2017 1:08 pm

I have a CDM-1550 (Non-LS) VHF. I am not sure if I have a true problem or a programming not correct problem. I am not getting any audio from either the front speaker (It is plugged in) or the rear speaker when attached with the acc. plug. I can change the setting in the CPS to handset and receive audio is fine through the front plug, using a handset. I have no history on the radio. It meets all other specs (TX and RX). Is there a speaker plug somewhere on the main board?

Thanks for any help

Chris Griffin: That would explain all the gravity.

What radios do you own?: 2 turntables and a microphone

My first guess would be that the speaker amp is blown. AFAIK there's no programming setting or jumper on the board that would disable speaker audio like you're describing.
When exposed to Rapid Fire Growth or Thermal Emergency, two things are lost:
1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind
