For a character $ \chi $ of a finite group $ G $, the number $ \chi^c(1)=\frac{[G:{\rm ker}\chi]}{\chi(1)} $ is called the co-degree of $ \chi $. Let ${\rm Sol}(G)$ denote the solvable radical of $G$. In this paper, we show that if $G$ is a finite non-solvable group with $\{\chi^c(1)_2:\chi \in {\rm Irr}(G)\}=\{1,2^m\}$ for some positive integer $m$, then $G/{\rm Sol}(G)$ has a normal subgroup $M/{\rm Sol}(G)$ such that $M/{\rm Sol}(G)\cong {\rm PSL}_2(2^n)$ for some integer $n \geq 2$, $[G:M]$ is odd and $ G/{\rm Sol}(G) \lesssim {\rm Aut}({\rm PSL}_2(2^n))$.
