Question about Uniden Radio Communications

1 Answer

Setting up the uniden gmr2638-2CK

When I first turn on the Uniden, I get nothing but static. It doesn't matter which channel I use. Even if I try the GMRS channels... static. I'm not new to two-way radios and never had ANY problem getting my previous ones set up. Mind you, they were Motorola's, but WHAT am I doing wrong?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch.

Hi Tina,

Is this a new radio or used radio?
If used, the problem is due to previous owner misusing, altering or even deleting the programmed factory pre-sets.

If new, you will have the user manual to guide you in setting it up, but from what you posted, it's used and abused.

I hope This has been useful, if not satisfactory for you.

Cheers,
Peter

SOURCE: Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving

To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

My uniden UH3O5sx is always stuck on receive (rx is always showing) can receive but not transmit


Set up your privacy tones or adjust the squelch level to stop the static and bring the handy out of receive mode. Some models have a busy channel lock out, that if it beleives it hears something it will not let you transmit over the other station.

How to turned off silent mode


With the phone in standby, try pressing and holding the # key on the handset for 5+ seconds. This toggles the silent mode for the D1660 between "always on" and off. If this doesn't help, check the Ringer volume. (This can be set by pressing the volume + button with the phone in standby on some models.)

If this doesn't work, please add a comment with the specific model Uniden DECT 6.0 phone that you have? There are several. Manuals for many Uniden DECT phones are available from their customer support site: http://www.uniden.com/bin/venda?ex=co_disp-view&bsref=uniden&scat=dectphones_mnl . The manuals are in alphabetical and numerical order.

I hope this helps.

I have a bc350c 800 mhz and cant get nothing but static how to i get the police channels to work


Try tuning known frequencies, such as the NOAA weather channels, to verify the working condition of your scanner. If it picks them up, you don't have your local police system/frequencies programmed properly. If there's no reception, even on NOAA, you have an antenna or receiver problem that may need professional attention.

In case you need it, you can download/print the manual for your scanner here:

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:

Uniden UBC72XLT scanner problem.


The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

Static interference on Uniden 5.8Ghz phone


i have a uniden 5.8 ghz cordeless and thought it was a piece of junk as well. I had static or lapse of audio near the router, the kitchen sink, the microwave (even when off) and in the doorway. I switched the frequency on the router and changed the channels on the phones all with no luck. Short of steering clear of my entire downstairs nothing worked.

Just about ready to buy a new phone and hit up google. Saw a posting that said to keep the base away from even the tv. . .hmmm this is exactly where mine was located. So I swapped the digital answering machine base and moved it downstairs and put the additional base near my flat screen. Guess what? Problem SOLVED! I still cannot believe it.

Hope this helps

Can't get audio on Bearcat 244CLT scanner, or get any of the buttons to operate properly. Can set the clock, but that's it. Volume and Squelch set all the way to right, not even static sound. Nothing on...


You can try a master reset. This will delete any frequencies that are programmed. Here is the way to do a reset...
Turn scanner off. Hold down, 2-9-HOLD (all three keys at once)while turning on the scanner. Keep holding the keys down for about 3 seconds. The word CLEAr should come up on the screen.
