I can't get my uniden bcd396xt police scanner to talk. it will scan, but not talk


Hi Sue,

No it's not a Police scanner, rather a radio scanner.

I will scan, but not receive transmissions.

Two reasons for this:

1. Do you have any frequencies programmed in the scanner, if not, there's your first reason answered.

2. Do you have frequencies programmed but the channels are locked out? If so, there's reason 2 answered.

To unlock channels, you need to press Mon/Hold key to stop the unit from scanning. Now press mon/Hold key and as you do so, notice if you have frequencies programmed and not just a bunch of zeros showing on your display. If zeros are displayed, example: 000.0000MHz, then you need to program the scanner with your favorite frequencies, and I advise that Police should not be programmed. If you do have frequencies programmed, then using the Mon/Hold keys as stated above, go through each channel and unlock each channel using the L/O key, until the L/O icon on the display goes out.

I Hope I have assisted you with your query.

Cheers,
Peter

What is ment be reflashing a police scanner



  • When police, public safety, etc re-band then some scanners may not pick up the frequencies and you need to update the firmware (when available) to keep your scanners ability to monitor certain frequencies, pairs of frequencies, splinter channels etc.

  • Hope this helps.

My uniden bearcat 50 channel 800mhz stop the police,fire ect.. and only gives me weather.. why? can you help ?


  • You can try pressing "Manual" and then "Scan" or "Band" buttons from the weather setting to get you back to scanning the police, fire,etc.
  • Make sure you don't have a WX (Weather) frequency programmed into on of the regular 50 channels or the scanner will continue to stop every time around as it will pick up the WX frequency.
  • Make sure you have your scanner programmed as well.

How do I reprogram the Radio Shack PRO- 2026 Police Scanner


To program a known frequency into the scanner:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press MANUAL to stop scanning.
- Enter the number of the channel that you wish to program.
- Press PROG.
- Enter the frequency, including decimal point.
- Press ENTER.
The frequency is now programmed into memory. To continue programming, start over with a channel number, or just press PROG to advance to the next channel.

I have a bc350c 800 mhz and cant get nothing but static how to i get the police channels to work


Try tuning known frequencies, such as the NOAA weather channels, to verify the working condition of your scanner. If it picks them up, you don't have your local police system/frequencies programmed properly. If there's no reception, even on NOAA, you have an antenna or receiver problem that may need professional attention.

In case you need it, you can download/print the manual for your scanner here:

Do you have a list of correct freq's for your area?
Make sure you have the scanner set on the correct mode (am/fm/ct/dc) for the freq's you have programmed. Each area of the country have their own individual freq. so their not stepping on each others transmission.
