My scanner is locked wont scan..and it says l/o and p in left hand corner. can you help

First, check to see if you have frequencies programmed into the scanner. A "blank" channel will display 000.0000 and the l/o symbol. Programming a frequency will automatically remove the lockout from that channel.

If frequencies are already programmed, you will need to step through the channels using the MAN key and press the L/O key for each to release the lockout.

If the above steps don't work, you will need to RESET the scanner. To do this, power the scanner OFF, then power ON again while holding in the 2, 9 and MAN keys. This will erase all programmed data and return the scanner to its original factory settings.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:

How to lock out a channel

For a temporary lockout, manually select the channel and then press the Func and L/O keys. Use the same procedure to release the lockout.

For a permanent fix, select the channel and then program 0.0 (zero point zero) into it. Doing this will create a blank channel that the scanner will automatically skip during scanning.

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:

when on the scanning part push the scan part again and push the prog buton that is under the lower arrow key and push it again so it will go to a different (blank channel) . you will know when it you are able to prog when the word prog will be on the bottom of the screen then go to to find the codes for your area and put them in and then press enter. after you do that press the prog button again and it will move to the next number to program a different on when you get the desired amount of frequencies in your scanner just push scan and it will run through the entered codes.. Or if thats not the problem then on top should be a bank of numbers and andd you have to push the number of what bank you want it to run through at that time.

A blank spot in reception on my 340 while a signal is heard

First thing I would check is to see if you have the "Priority" Function set on. If it is on a PRI would be illuminated in the display. When this is on the scanner will pause and check you "priority" Channel every 2 seconds, even when it is stopped on a transmission. Turn off the Priority by pressing the PRI button while it is scanning. Se if theis helps,

Blank screen goes in and out

My 2096 was doing the same thing with a blank screen. IF, your scanner is scanning normally and the dim button still dims your display, your problem could be the same as mine was. This worked for me and got my display working like new again. First thing to do is to take the covers both top and bottom off to expose your scanners insides.Next, once you can see the inside of your scanner you will see a ribbon cable connected to the main board and also soldered to the display. Take the ribbon out of its coupling connector and gently clean the contacts on the ribbon with a cuetip with alcohol on it, also clean the solder joints on the display face that connect the ribbon to the display with the cuetip and alcohol. Ii then reassembled everything, ribbon back into its connector and made sure the clamping mechanisim on the ribbon was securely holding the ribbon. I pluged the power supply into it and turned it on before reassemblig the case covers to see if it would work. Bingo, it worked like new again. Hope it works for you ! Jim

Loses channels in car / is fine at home

Make sure the adapter you use for you car is set for the proper voltage. That was my problem. I must have moved the voltage selector switch off of the proper setting. I set it back at 9 volts and I was back in business.

Screen went blank

Sounds like you fried something by reversing the polarity. Repair will likely be expensive, but check with the manufacturer to find out if they have a flat-rate service charge, if so they will most likely replace it with a refurbished scanner.

My screen has gone blank.

This problem is caused by oxidation on the cable tip. All that has to be done is pull the flex cable from the connector on the back of the display and cut off the tip of it. Put a dab od antioxident on the cable and put it back in the connector. This has fixed several scanners we have had come through our shop.
