Question about Uniden BC72XLT Handheld Scanner
I have a uniden bc72xlt that used to work fine, but now when I turn it on, no matter where I have the squelch set at it broadcasts static fuzz. Is there some easy fix I am missing or is it shot?? Thanks for the help in advance
The volunteers at FixYa don't like to respond to questions like yours because bad news answers often get us bad feedback.
It's difficult, if not impossible to accurately troubleshoot a scanner without a hands-on exam, but at a minimum, the squelch control is likely shot, and the problem could be worse than that. Parts are hard to obtain, and handhelds are difficult to work on. With the cost of repairs going up and the cost of scanners going down, your best bet is probably a new scanner.
Sorry for being the bearer of bad news.
