Why not go to the Uniden website for information. You may be able to download a copy of the manual for your scanner or get some basic information regarding programming

How canifixmyscanner,it scansbut doesnt pick up program stations


You didn't provide the make or model of your scanner, or any real specifics on your problem, but your first step is to make sure that you've programmed active frequencies into it. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

For a functional check, you should first program and scan NOAA weather frequencies to verify whether or not the scanner is working properly. Many scanners have a WEATHER or WX band function that will let you check the NOAA broadcasts without any programming. If your scanner does not pick up the weather broadcasts you may have an antenna problem or an electronic problem that will require professional repair.

How to program bearcat colt scanner


The only information I could find on the Colt is that it is "similar" to the BC560XLT. You can download and print the 560 operating manual via the link below. I hope it helps.

Uniden 30 ch scanner i have locked out all channels.


Each channel with the zeroes means that it is a blank - with nothing programmed into it. Going to any one of them and programming a frequency will get rid of the zeroes and switch off the lockout. It's picking up weather, so it's working. Sounds like you just need to find and program active frequencies for your area, and the place to find them is:

If you need it, you can download and print the manual for the BC60XLT-1 here:

Cant seem to get it to pick up local frequencies


Can't really diagnose the problem without more information, but make sure that your antenna is connected properly and that you've programmed frequencies that are active in your area. For a quick function check, program the frequency 162.55, 162.4, 162.475, 162.425, 162.45, 162.5, 162.525, 161.65, 161.775, or 163.275 into your scanner. One of them, probably the first one, will be the primary weather frequency in your area. If the scanner picks up the weather broadcast you'll know that it's working.

My bearcat scanner BC147xlt will not pick up codes in my area


Press the WEATHER button. If the scanner picks up a weather broadcast then you either have the wrong frequencies programmed in for your area, or it's possible that you're in a "dead" zone where you just won't receive much without an outdoor antenna. If no weather broadcast is received, chances are that the scanner's processor is "fried." Yours is an old scanner, and they do wear out.

For local frequencies, try CityFreq.com or RadioReference.com. Both have excellent databases.

Can't get my BC560xlt to accept a program


Internal problem, can be repaired by a tech familiar with Bearcat scanners, but probably not worth the cost. If you're near NJ, call 973-831-5900.

Uniden bearcat scanner


The scanner was probably turned off and it forgot what frequencies were programed into it. Older scanners have a problem with retaining their memory when they are shut off. Most of the older scanners have a memory back-up battery that helps the scanner retain its memory. Check and see if this battery is still good. As for your frequencies, you'll have to reprogram the scanner. To put it in technical terms, some older scanners have what is called RAM (Regency Alterable Memory) and ROM (Regency Organized Memory), when you turn off you scanner, this memory is erased, along with your programmed channels. Be sure not to turn off your scanner unless you're willing to reprogram the scanner.
