Hi Jan,

It sounds to me as if your scanner is locking on to a 'BIRDIE', which is an internally generated frequency in the scanner, all scanners have this by default, your user manual usually has a page, near the back of the manual, with known 'birdies', and there a lots.

When your scanner locks onto a 'BIRDIE', which is a frequency with no voice audio, the best thing to do is press Lockout button, during the scan, your scanner will, if there is no other problem with it, continue to scan, until it finds another 'BIRDIE', then you do the same thing as I've described, until you've locked out all the 'BIRDIES'.

I hope this info was useful.

Cheers,
Peter.

I can't get my uniden bcd396xt police scanner to talk. it will scan, but not talk


Hi Sue,

No it's not a Police scanner, rather a radio scanner.

I will scan, but not receive transmissions.

Two reasons for this:

1. Do you have any frequencies programmed in the scanner, if not, there's your first reason answered.

2. Do you have frequencies programmed but the channels are locked out? If so, there's reason 2 answered.

To unlock channels, you need to press Mon/Hold key to stop the unit from scanning. Now press mon/Hold key and as you do so, notice if you have frequencies programmed and not just a bunch of zeros showing on your display. If zeros are displayed, example: 000.0000MHz, then you need to program the scanner with your favorite frequencies, and I advise that Police should not be programmed. If you do have frequencies programmed, then using the Mon/Hold keys as stated above, go through each channel and unlock each channel using the L/O key, until the L/O icon on the display goes out.

I Hope I have assisted you with your query.

Cheers,
Peter

Getting original display back


Hi Steve,
read the user manual very carefully, it will show you step by step instructions on how to use your scanner.

Before you do anything else, turn off the scanner and remove the batteries, leave it off for at least 1 hour, to allow the scanner to reset to factory default status, yes it means you will lose any frequencies you may have programmed in, but if you're a radio buff like me, you would have a hard copy of your favourite frequencies somewhere safe.

Once you have read the instructions, get your scanner up and running again, you should fin the default screen is back again, and you can use the manual to get you up and scanning the right way without locking up the screen.

I hope this has been helpful.

Cheers,
Peter

How do I unlock my scanner?


Channel Lockout You can lock out a channel so it is not scanned. Channel Lockout does not erase the frequency from the channel. You can lock out up to 50 channels, including the Priority channel.
Lockout information is retained in the memory when the scanner is turned off.To Lock out a Channel
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. Press LOCKOUT again to unlock the displayed channel. L/O no longer appears in the display.Restore All Locked Out Channel To unlock all channels, you must be in the Manual Mode.1. Press MANUAL.

I have the BC370CRS SCANNER I am trying to clear all the memory and reset it. It is telling me to hold down 2, 9, and hold and turn it on. That is not working. Can you please tell me another way to do...


Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

Hi, this is from the manual,
Locking Out Channels
You can increase the scanning speed by locking out channels that have a continuous transmission, such as a weather channel. To lock out a channel,
manually select the channel, then press Func +L/O.
L/O appears.
Note: You can still manually select locked-out channels.
To remove the lockout from a channel, manually
select the channel, then press Func + L/O.
