While your scanner is scanning just press the numbers of the banks that are not shown,(3,4,5,7,and 8) and then it should scan those banks as well.Also if you want to turn a band off just press it while it is scanning.

BC72XLT scanner does not stop on some programmed channels while scanning. My other scanner will read the transmission. The numbers indicating banks 1 and 3 aare not visable during scan, are they locked...

what it is because that your other banks are locked out and thats why it by passes your frequencies...unlock your banks and it will stop on the transmissions...

I want to dump the old programs and reprogram new freqs. for the uniden bc72xlt

Your can RESET your scanner to erase all data that you've programmed into it and return it to its original factory settings.To do this:
1. Power the scanner OFF.
2. While holding in the 2, 9, and HOLD keys, power the scanner ON. The process takes about 3 seconds, and the word CLEAr will display.

For single channels, you can program "000.0000" into any one of them to clear its programmed data, or just program a new frequency into the channel. The new data will override the old information.

Need the factory operating manual for your scanner? You can download and print it, free of charge, here:

Only one bank blinks

Yes that sounds like the case. Every scanner or radio I've ever delt with that is the way it works. Check user manual on how to turn off and on banks. Good Luck.

BC72XLT program/scanning problems

1. If you mean on "bank" of channels, then you have locked out the others. To unlock them, place the scanner in "scan" mode & press each button that corresponds to each locked out bank until all are "on", as indicated near the top of the LCD. If you can't scan "bands", meaning all frequencies between 25-54, 118-174 & 406-512 Mhz, you may be stuck in the "capture" mode. Let me know if this is the case (not likely) & I'll coach you through it.

2. No.

3. No.
