Re: Very low volumn

Take it back to the store & exchange it, but make sure the new one has normal volume & other functions before you leave. Radio Shack scanners are not well made & vary from one box to the next.

I have a Radio shack hand help police scanner, when I put the batteries in and turn it on, i just hear this low level static and some small clicking noise. The display finally came on for a few minutes but...

Take the scanner back to radio shack for an exchange. If you have had the radio too long then take the scanner back to radio shack and they will send it to their service center for repairs. Personnally I would upgrade to a digital scanner as things are getting ready to change nation wide. Most goverments will be upgrading to P25 digital to comply with the requirements of Homeland Security.

Why does the uniden bearcat 210LXT have low volume. When turned full blast you can hardly hear it. Is there something we can do?

Your scanner is about 30 years old, so the electronics are old and tired. The problem could be in the audio circuit, the volume "pot' control, or the speaker, but bear in mind that repairing this veteran will likely exceed the cost of a comparable new scanner. Depending on what the actual problem is, connecting an external speaker or headsets to the external speaker jack on the back of the scanner may extend its life.

I have a Bearcat BC 140 scanner that has 2 issues

You have a power supply problem. Lag on start up with low audio. Send it to the factory for repair.

If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:

- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON.
- Press the SVC button (chrome button below display).
- Press POL (chrome button below display).
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise.
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.

If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.

To Program:

- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner."
- Power the unit ON
- Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes.
- Press HOLD.
- Press E (PGM).
- Press 0, 1.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02.
- Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press the E (PGM) key.

You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .

If it still will not accept programming, let me know.

Kenwood TS50 - Max volume gives very low audio while receiving

It sound like a bad reostat in the volume control. if its under warranty send unit back to kenwood and have them replace the volume control, and possible speaker involvement.

Radio Shack Pro-26 Scanner Not Receiving

Hello dino, It sounds just offhand likethe scanner is just getting tired. Maybe a componant failed or changed value inside on the circuit board, that will change the whole setup. It will no longer be fine tuned for the correct freq. range. Hope this helps,,, I know it's not what you wanted to hear.Mechanic

Help with programing my scanner

If you don't hear the weather the scanner is malfunctioning & needs to be repaired. If you live near NJ, call 973-831-5900 to speak to a tech familiar with Bearcat scanners.

Scanner static

Use the channel lock out control, unless it is a frequency that you listen to, you may have interference that is causing random static. use a noise filter mechanism to minimize this problem, or buy a specialized scanner antenna that's guaranteed to minimize static.
If no avail, you may need to send it in to a store.

Hope this helps!

when they go digital, you may only hear static.
