Question about Uniden TRUNKTRACKER III

2 Answers

Display looks like a UPC code!

Hi, I have a Uniden Trunktracker III BC246T police/fire scanner and the display is all messed up. I can't see any numbers, all I see is black lines that look like a UPC code. Is this something I can fix at home, or will it need to be sent in for repair?

Thank you!

It sounds like a LCD display failure. You could try buying a dead unit and swapping screens,. Or Contact uniden, ask about a screen replacement cost. Remember include shipping both ways.

I would look up in the manual and try a Master reset first off.
it may or may not bring it back online though.

Need manuel for uniden bearcat trunktracker iii police scanner

Check your scanner for a model number. I have found an online manual for the Uniden BCT15X from Uniden: . This model has the TrunkTracker III logo to the upper left of the LCD screen. The Uniden logo is to the lower left of the LCD screen. The model number is given above the upper right of the LCD screen. Then the Bearcat logo is below the right side of the LCD screen. Some other Uniden scanner manuals are available here: . Scroll down to the Individual Scanners section to find the links.

I hope these links help.

Police scanner codes

While looking up local listing will take a little leg work, These links below will give you some great starting points.
Just remember, agencies will change frequencies, Hardware, and radio types from analog, to digital, to trunked.
Also web sites may not have most up to date listings, Id also suggest local amateur radio aka Ham radio clubs. some of the guys there may be able to help you out as well.
Best of luck and SCAN ON! :) Enjoy
