How do you know its sensitivity is 25 microvolts? have you checked the antenna connections to make sure they are clean and tight? If there is no problem with the antenna/lead in section,i would check the power supply voltage to see if its right and then the first rf amp, which is probably an field effect transistor near the antenna,they are often damaged by static charges.

Wondering what the problem is


a few simple things to try here---make sure squelch is not set up too high and if it has a earphone jack look to see if sound from it--last of course is the built in speaker may have failed.

Those are the easy things and all that is left is bad volume control or a audio output problem in the unit.

Most makers like Uniden and RS offer a flat rate repair on units so some may consider that as a option.

I have a bearcat scanner BC350A


Units that are stored for a long time may take some time (hours) if caps inside have gone flat from no use.

Uniden also has or had a flat charge for repair of these units--might want to look into that and weigh it versus the cost of a newer scanner.

Pro-96 Scanner: My PRO-96 just went stone deaf. How do I get it re...


Just about any electronics/radio shop can repair your scanner, but for the best job with factory trained technicians, factory parts, and a repair warranty, you can take the unit to any Radio Shack and they will either have the job done locally or send it in for factory repair.

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.

Screen went blank


Sounds like you fried something by reversing the polarity. Repair will likely be expensive, but check with the manufacturer to find out if they have a flat-rate service charge, if so they will most likely replace it with a refurbished scanner.

Align receive


receiver alignment is beyond what you can do unless you have a good signal generator and scope and the knowledge needed to understand the circuitry and the test equipment, you will need a tech to do this job.

Pro 97 not working


This is just a guess but sounds like your antenna connection (inside the unit) has broken. If you use the antenna as a handle it will eventually break. Radio Shack will repair it for a flat fee of $40 (that was the price the last time I checked) plus shipping. Or if you are really good at soldering and have good eye sight, you can repair it your self.
Your local radioshack should be able to send it in for repair.
