here is the owners manual / user guide . it says that in case of a power failure it supposed to retain memory indefinitely , since yours did not , maybe you should program in some channels , giving it some new memory . your question is listed under uniden model bc248clt , thats correct right ?

BCT7 looses programing when power loss occurs whenever the unit is powered on. The unit does not loose programing when the unit is powered off. What gives?


I had the same problem with my BCT7, and after a little research, found this memory backup cap as the problem. It is located next to a transformer near where the 12vdc plugs into the circuit board (the cap is only about a 1/4" tall).
You can get one cheap from the following dealer:

Scanner reads memory loss and is stuck on a police channel, unless I go to weather scan then it works fine ?


This means that you have lost all of your programs all of your Frequencies are gone.You will to reprogram it.If you leave it unplugged for a long period of time it will do that.

I have A radio shack PRO-2096 and have not been able to use it in over A year. it reads all channels locked out. I can't unlock it.can someone please help me?


Please try this!!
You may need a soft or hard reset. Here's some reading and instructions.
Please use this first!
resetting your scanner
1. Turn off your scanner, and then turn it on again.

2. Insert a pointed object into the reset hole on the back
of the scanner. Then, gently press and release the reset
button. Pressing reset does not clear the scanner's
working memory or the V-Scanner folders.

If this doesn't work here's step two! CAUTION. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, but it MAY Fix the Problem!!

Initializing your scanner clears all information stored in your
scanner's working memory. Initialize your scanner only when
you are sure it is not working properly. V-Scanner memory is
not affected when you initialize the scanner.

1. Turn off the scanner, and turn it on again. First, the DSP
boot version, and then Welcome To Digital Trunking appears.

2. Press 0. The following messages appear on the display:

System Tests

Select Test
Exits if no
Key Press

3. Press 1. The following messages appear on the display:

Factory Init
Erase Memory
ENTER if Yes
CL to EXIT

4. Press ENT. The following messages appear on the display:

Initializing
Clr Main Mem
V-Scan is OK
Please Wait

5. Do not turn off your scanner until the initialization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000 and
Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display.

Hope this works.. Happy Scanning

PRO-2096 digital scanner display lines from top to bottom


you can push on the display with your finger and see if you notice any change, if so it is probably a bad solder joint or crack in a circuit trace on the printed circuit board. Also with the unit unplugged you can open up the case and check for loose plugs by removeing them and then plugging them back in, then plug the scanner back into the wall outlet and turn it on to see if that helped. The voltages inside are low except where the power cord goes into the unit, at the fuse, and on the primary side of the transformer, so dont touch these areas unless you know what you are doing.

MEMORY QUESTION


This problem is caused by failure of the lithium memory battery #2032. To replace same remove top and bottom covers.Use a small pair of pliers or curved hemostats to hold the bottom of the speaker connection socket to the board as you unplug the connector. If it is not done you run the risk of loosening the socket from the circuit board. Carefully unplug the ribbon cables that connect the front panel to the main circuit board. You may leave the rest of the attached wires alone as they are long enough to permit service without removal. Remove two screws from each side of the front main frame and the single screw securing the main circuit board to the front panel board. Gently bow the front of the main frame sides inward to permit detachment of the front panel. On the bottom front of the front panel is a small flat battery soldered to the front circuit board on flat standoff legs. I do not know if this radio has fet components that could be damaged by static electricity but to be on the safe side I used a pencil soldering iron that was grounded to the frame to remove the legs and battery from the circuit board. Note the polarity of the battery before removal. The little standoff legs are spot welded to the battery. They may be either gently peeled off with small pliers or you may use a dremel tool with the cutting wheel to grind out the welds to the battery along the long axis of the legs. This last method does not deform the legs like the first method. Tin the insides of the legs where they were welded to the battery. Prepare the new CR 2032 lithium battery by sanding or scraping the surface where the legs will be reattached, then tin it also. With rosin core solder reattach the legs to the new battery. Try to avoid heating the battery more than necessary to get a good solder joint.The top side when completed should be the + side. Note the circuit board has the location for the + lead. Re-solder to board from the component side of the board. Reattach the front panel to the main frame with the ribbon cables on the correct side of the board. Carefully plug the ribbon cables back in, taking care they are fully seated in their sockets. Replace the bottom panel. Plug the speaker plug back into its socket, again grasping the socket gently with pliers to prevent loosening from board. Replace all screws and you should now be able to unplug the radio without lose of memory. I did leave the 13.6 volt dc supply connected the the radio during service as I was not sure if the total loss of memory voltage would damage the internal scanning program. Good Luck. Its not as complicated as it sounds if you have the right tools and some electronic experience.

Clearing memory


WELL, After a year I alone, without any help from UNIDEN, FIGURED IT OUT.
1. TURN IT OFF, UNPLUG AC JACK IN THE BACK!
2. REMOVE Backup battery cover "underneath" scanner! TAKE ALL 3 BATTERIES OUT.
3. I PUSHED THE POWER BUTTON TO BLEED ANYTHING OFF IN THE CAPACITORS, IF IT HAS ANY INSIDE?
4. PUSH THE"2", "9", AND "HOLD BUTTONS DOWN, THEN PLUG THE A.C. BACK IN ON THE BACK OF THE SCANNER.
5.You WILL notice while you are doing STEP#4 THAT THE DISPLAY SAY'S "CLEAR". ALL FREQUENCIES WILL BE CLEARED IN THE MEMORY!! THEN TURN Scanner OFF reinstall the BATTERIES, TURN BACK ON AND START PROGRAMMING!! THIS WAS FOR A "BC340CRS" SCANNER

Looses frequencies when programmed


if it loses the frequencies immediatly then it sounds like the capacitor that holds the charge for the memory has gone out. If it is sitting for a few days and loses frequencies this is more common. Solution, if you've had it less than a year, take it to your local radioshack, try to find the receipt and have them send it to the repair center for you.
