Can't get my BC560xlt to accept a program

I have an older BC560XLT that has decided it won't accept a program anymore. When I turn it on the display reads "L". It still scans and will squelch if in weather mode but does not appear to be recieving anything even on weather.

Internal problem, can be repaired by a tech familiar with Bearcat scanners, but probably not worth the cost. If you're near NJ, call 973-831-5900.

I have a Uniden Bearcat BC560XLT scanner that when I turn the switch on it wont come on I think it's dead mine is not a hand held one and it does'nt take batteries.Thank You, Stephanie Miller.

Unfortunately due to the age of this model we no longer have any information nor repairs available for this model. This unit has not been manufactured in a substantial amount of time and we no longer have any information available for this unit. You may want to try a Google search for more information.
