Just un-install it and re-install it as long as you have the software. otherwise it's a longer procedure, and your more likelly to mess something else up than if you just go into add remove programs in the device manager and remove the program. By the way there is a physical "lock" on some older Uniden models, on the side of the unit, I am, somehow able to remember this from a decade ago ,having run into this problem before. take a look on the sides and top for a switch, and if that model doesn't have one then try what I suggested above. good luck and happy holiday

Example: Suppose you want to lock out Channel 2 because it stops on transmissions you don't want to hear.Press LOCKOUT when the scanner stops on Channel 2.The scanner locks out Channel 2, Then it immediately advances to the next channel that is not locked out, and resumes scanning.In the Manual mode, press LOCKOUT to lock out the displayed channel. Pressing LOCKOUT does not advance to the next channel in Manual mode.L/O appears in the display to indicate the displayed channel is locked out.Whenever you want to search for channels that are locked out, press MANUAL repeatedly to go through all 50 channels. If a channel is locked out, L/O
appears in the display.Restore a Locked Out Channel To unlock a channel so that it can be monitored during scanning:1. Press MANUAL repeatedly to find the locked out channel.2.

Hi there I have a Uniden BC92XLT Nascar scanner, but some frequencies cannot be found. For instance the frequency range between 60 and 90 mhz is not on the scanner. How do I unlock those? Some of the...

Sorry, but there is no way to "unlock" or modify the frequency coverage of the BC92XLT or any other recently-manufactured scanner. Your only option is to purchase a scanner designed to include the frequency range that you are after. If you don't already have it, you can download and print the operating instructions for your scanner here:

Uniden has a webpage with a free manual pdf download for your scanner.

You'll be able to get the manual HERE The link is upper right side of page..
If all your channels are locked out, press and hold the l/o button for at least 2 seconds, you'll hear 2 beeps and that should unlock them.
