You turn the squelch lower or off to hear distant signals. You don't turn it "up".

Check for a CB/PA switch and make sure it is in the CB position.
Make sure an antenna is connected to the radio.
If you have a RF Gain control, be sure it is turned all the way up.
If the radio has USB/LSB/AM switch make sure it is on AM.
Make sure the previous owner did not leave a connector plugged into the external speaker jack.
A lot of radios will not receive without a microphone connected.

Plug an external speaker into the jack in the back. If you still get no sound, then plug it into the PA jack and put the radio into the PA mode. If you hear noise, then the receive wire on the Mic is bad. If the radio was ever hooked up backwards and the polarity protector is open, then the audio chip is popped. Sometimes the tab on the external speaker jack is not making contact due to wear. This will keep the internal speaker from working.
