Question about Uniden BC340CRS Base Scanner

A blank spot in reception on my 340 while a signal is heard

While in scan mode, and it stops on a signal, like the local sheriff or anything at all, there is a consistent, regular pause in the signal. No problem on AM or FM radio. I have moved the scanner away from any source of device that emits RF, and still the same. I guess you could describe it like a regular pulse, except that it is a blank spot in reception.Thank you

First thing I would check is to see if you have the "Priority" Function set on. If it is on a PRI would be illuminated in the display. When this is on the scanner will pause and check you "priority" Channel every 2 seconds, even when it is stopped on a transmission. Turn off the Priority by pressing the PRI button while it is scanning. Se if theis helps,

I csnnot get Auto Scan to run - it is finding no channels

ensure the set is adjusted to receive the type of channels that are broadcast in your area. By this I mean that if digital is broadcast ensure the tv is setup for digital reception.
I assume that you are using an antenna/aerial. Ensure that this correctly installed and is functioning, there may be a facility on the tv to check the reception via a swr meter of some kind, basically a utiliity that registers that an aerial is bringing in some kind of signal.
It cannot be anything else, if the tv is setup for the local broadcast type and the aerial is connected the signals should be found unless you have very bad reception due to environmental conditions.... in which case you may have to invest in a reception booster/signal amplifier.

you need to give some more info on the case for people to give a more detailed answer... but if your getting no where due to the fact the debtor is not replying or answering the door then possibly try another debt collection agency who will take a % from the debt once recovered, failing that take them to small claims court or high court, im unsure about laws in Australia but in UK you can pay a little more and go straight to high court which gives them the right to enforce Sheriffs who have greater rights than what we call bailiffs here, the right to force entry into the house and seize goods to the value of the debt as opposed to having to wait for them to answer the door but you will only get your money if the debtor has enough goods or money to seize or to pay. If your Sheriffs do have higher powers than bailiffs then you simply need to wait for their reply and they will be on the case. Sheriffs can't usually be avoided by debtors unless they have nothing to give. Good Luck

HP error code 363, what does this mean?

I went online and found the HP8600 user manual and this is their solution to the error code 363 that you reported, which I copied off their site. Hope this works for you:

  • Turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off, if you encounter the same error repeatedly. Click this link HP All-in-One and Fax Products for more information on enabling or disabling ECM.


    NOTE: Error codes that apply specifically to ECM have ECM listed next to them.

Error Code: 356, 357, 358, 359, 360, 361, 362 ECM, 363 ECM, 364 ECM, 365 ECM, 366 ECM


  • The remote user pressed the Stop key, causing the session to be terminated.
  • The remote machine encountered a system problem such as no paper or a paper jam. This prevented the fax from receiving any more pages, and caused it to terminate the session prematurely.
  • The call-waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for an incoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.
  • The remote machine encountered an incompatible feature causing it to terminate the session.


  • Configure the remote machine for document reception by clearing any paper jams, loading sufficient paper, and clearing any other error messages.
  • Configure the local fax machine to use a slower reception speed.
  • Enable or disable the ECM setting.

How can i stop the squelch ive tryed turning the sqcuelch doesnt help

Plug the AC adapter into the back of the scanner and into a wall electrical outlet. Screw the antenna into the receptacle on the back of the scanner (extend the antenna to full length for best reception).

  • 2 Set the squelch level to allow signals to be heard by turning the squelch knob counterclockwise. Rotate the volume knob clockwise until you hear static. Slowly turn the squelch knob clockwise until the static noise disappears.
  • 3 Start programming frequencies into the scanner by pressing the "Manual" button.
  • 4 Press the up arrow or down arrow key until the channel you wish to program is visible on the display.
  • 5 Use the numbers on the keypad to enter the frequency for the local transmitter you wish to receive.
  • 6 Press the "E" key to complete the process of entering the frequency.
  • 7 Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each additional frequency you wish to monitor.
  • 8 Press the "Scan" key to start the scanning process. The scanner stops on a channel when it detects a signal strong enough to hear over the squelch setting. Two seconds after the signal stops, the scanning process resumes.

    My scanner no longer scans the local police and sheriff frequencies. It will only scan the next county sheriff frequencies. It was originally programmed to scan Omaha police and Douglas Co. sheriff.

    It's possible that your county services have switched to a trunking system, leaving you with nothing but "dead" frequencies. To check the frequencies and systems that are currently in use in your area, visit:

    SAMSUNG UE32B6000 have problem with conecting ,it say weak signal,or no signal just blank screen, where do i start,

    If you just have over-the-air signals from local broadcast stations, you need a good VHF/UHF antenna connected to the RF input jack on the TV in order to get reception. If you have access to cable TV or satellite, you need to connect the box or receiver set-top-box to the TV using a HDMI cable. You need to select on the TV using the remote, (press the MENU button) setup for tuning channels. Do a scan after setting to AIR or CABLE so the TV picks up all available channels you can get. Once this is done you can change channels and see TV. If you reply back with specifics, I can help more...

    Clock keeps working plus 1 hour Lexibook RP200GB set the time but every night it resets to 1 hour ahead can't find user manual please help

    Hope this helps I had same irratating problem
    1. The RP200 is designed to automatically synchronize its calendar clock once it is brought within a range of 1500km of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal. When the RP200 is brought within this range, its auto-control mechanism will override all manual settings.
    2. The clock automatically starts scanning the RF 433MHz signal after new batteries are inserted in the main unit. When receiving the RF 433MHz radio signal, the Radio Tower symbol starts to blink. A complete reception generally takes about 10 minutes, depending on the strength of the radio signal.
    3. When the reception is complete, the Radio Tower symbol will stop blinking and remain solid
    4. For an optimal reception, place the clock away from metal objects and electrical appliances (i.e. television, computer, monitor, etc) to minimize interference.
    • The unit will receive the RCC signals every day at 2am.
    • The RCC signal can also be triggered by holding the key for 2
    seconds in time mode.
    • When the unit is searching or receiving the RCC signal (which lasts
    about 5 minutes), none of the keys is working except the key.
    • Press and hold the key for 2 seconds if you wish to stop to the
    RCC signal search.
    If the RP200 is brought outside the range of the Frankfurt DCF77 radio signal or if the signal is interfered, please set the time and date manually according to the instructions below. If the unit is located within the radio-controlled range, you may want to customize some of the clock settings.
    Note: When no key is pressed for more than one minute, the unit returns to time mode (time, date and temperature display
    World Time Clock
    This function allows you to adjust the clock to a time zone. It is
    particularly useful for travelers. Set the clock to the city you are located in, or to a city in the same time zone.
    1. In time mode, press [MODE] twice to select the world time clock.
    2. Press the key to select the city in which you are located.
    3. Press to adjust the summer saving time function.
    4. Press and hold [SET] to set the world time as the local time. When the local time is the same as the world time, the icon flashes.

    Won't pick anything up (uniden BC72XLT)

    Not sure this would be a solution but...
    Make sure you don't have the Ch. Locked out so it just skips them..

    You may also try and let the scanner sit on one frequency that you know has chatter and see if you receive.

    This unit also picks up local weather try that feature and you can tell if you reception is working or not.

    Setup 32 inch sansui for digital reception

    1) Connect your signal source - either CABLE or ANTENNA.
    2) Go into your menu and select your signal source to match.
    3) SCAN in the channels. This will give you all channels available.
    Your User Manual will give you all information.
    If you are on cable, you may have to check with your supplier to see if they carry local stations.
