Question about Uniden BC80XLT Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

Just bought this scanner used and having problems with Banks 3 and 4

I just bought this scanner through craigslist.com and I have already programmed the channels that I want but can't seem to get Banks 3 and 4 to scan. When the scanner is in scan it will not go through these two banks. I don't know if this is something normal that it does. I have checked the manual and I made sure that these banks were not on lockout. Please help me out!!!!!

While the scanner is scanning press buttons 3 and 4 and they should start scanning too, if they dont then go to the first channel in bank 3 manually and press LO to unlock it, then hit manual again to go to the next channel and press LO again to unlock it( all of the channels in the bank are probably either locked out or empty(nothing programmed into them)

I Havel a pro-95 scanner and I have frequencies programmed into banks 1 thru 6 and the scanner isn't scanning banks 2 thru 6


Make sure the banks are enabled and the frequencies in the banks aren't locked out. If you are scanning trunked systems make sure the control channels are set up properly.

Keep in mind you cannot scan digital systems with this scanner, only analog systems and frequencies.

Scanner stuck on one channel and won't allow me to enter new freq


Push the "L/O" lockout button and it will lockout that channel.
When you press "Scan" you have to have at least one of the banks scanning, so press 1, 2, 3,....9, 0 whatever bank you have channels programmed in order to automatically scan. You should be able to press "Manual" to see each channel individually.

I have the BC370CRS SCANNER I am trying to clear all the memory and reset it. It is telling me to hold down 2, 9, and hold and turn it on. That is not working. Can you please tell me another way to do...


Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

Your PRO-96 has 10 banks of 50 channels, giving you access to 500 channels for conventional systems. It also has 11 banks of 500 channels, giving you access to 5500 users on trunked systems. Detailed instructions for programming the scanner are contained in the factory operating instructions, which you can download and print at no cost here:

• The 50 channels are divided into 5 banks (Bank 1: Channels 1-10, Bank 2: 11-20, etc.).
• Any of the 5 banks can be turned off from scanning. To turn a bank on/off, press its number while in Scan Mode. Active banks are illuminated in the display.
• SPEED toggles between 8 & 16 channels per second in both scan & search modes.
TO ENTER A FREQUENCY IN A MEMORY CHANNEL:
