You may have lost all the programming, so go to manual mode & verify that all your channels have frequencies programmed into them.Another possibility is that all the banks are locked out, you should see the numbers 1 to 10 at the top of the display; if you don't, press 'scan', then press each key until all missing number reappear.

I have this scanner and it will scan but it wont pick nothin up

A couple of things could be involved in your problem. You need to be listening to the frequencies that are being used in your area, but most of them will not be transmitting all of the time. Something you can try is if you live maybe about 10-20 miles from an airport and your scanner picks up aircraft frequencies you can look up the airport and find the automated beacon frequency and tune that in. The automated beacon should be transmitting 24/7 the weather conditions of the airport.

Another thing to check is weather you have the correct antenna attached to your scanner and that it is connected properly, the circuits in your scanner may need that antenna to be connected for the circuit to function properly.

If you are using the scanner to listen to your local Fire Dispatch there can be days when there isn't anything happening.

Another problem could be that your local Dispatch has moved over to a new Digital System and your scanner isn't equipped to recieve that System.

Manual for Bearcat Scanner BC 140 10 channel

I couldn't locate a manual for your oldie, but it's fairly simple to operate.

  1. Turn the scanner ON.
  2. Press "Manual" to stop scanning. Use the keyboard to choose the channel you want to enter your first frequency into. If you want channel 2, press the number 2 on the keyboard and then "Manual" again. If you want channel 12, press the 1 and then the 2 and then "Manual" again.
  3. Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point. For instance, if the frequency is 555.789, enter 5, 5, 5 and then the dot button, then 7, 8 and 9. Then press "Enter" to complete the setup.
  4. Use the "Manual" button to move to the next channel to enter the next frequency. Continue this process until you have all frequencies entered.
  5. Complete your entries and then press "Scan." Set the squelch by turning the "Squelch" knob all the way up and backing off until you hear no static.
  6. Lock out a channel that is annoying you by pressing the "Lockout" button. If you want to listen to the channel again, simply select "Manual," find the channel by entering it on the keypad and then hit "Lockout" again

My ups will not stop beeping - I tried to unplug it etc. help


This sounds like your battery in on the way out and your UPS is telling you to replace it. If the UPS is 3-4 years old then its time to replace the battery, that is about the longest time to wait. The gel cell batteries will dry out because of the constant charge/discharge just like a car battery will. When the UPS senses a charge in the charging current/voltage signaling a dieing battery it will start beeping to warn you.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Ok doc, I'll see if I can walk you thru this as there don't seem to be a manual available for download.
* Push manual button and bring it around to channel #1
Enter the freq including the decimal point. Push the E button to enter the freq into the first channel.
* Push manual again and move to channel #2 and repeat.
If you need some new freq's for your area, go here, click on your state, county, and it'll give you a complete rundown.

If you need 10 codes for your area, go here and click on your state.
If you need anything else, let us know,, Mechanic

Uniden bc 350a

Hi, Is you CB gear grounded to an "earth" ground? Also try moving the scanner around, away from the CB coax, as your probably getting stray RF from there. I've run 100watt with my scanner 5ft. away from it and no problems for the last 6 years,,
You are using good quality coax, aren't you? Cheap coax leaks like a soaker hose. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic

Scanner won't move?

These have quite a flimsy rubber drive belt which can stick and go hard. If you can get to it you might be able to soften it up with a soak over night in olive oil. Finding a replacement might be difficult..
