Uniden has a webpage with a free manual pdf download for your scanner.

You'll be able to get the manual HERE The link is upper right side of page..
If all your channels are locked out, press and hold the l/o button for at least 2 seconds, you'll hear 2 beeps and that should unlock them.

How do you unlock channels on scanner


Hi Lori,
Many times, you need to switch to MANUAL mode (out of scan) and step thru each channel. The display will indicate if the particular channel is locked out by symbol or text. Pressing ENTER or LOCKOUT (depending on model scanner) should toggle a locked out channel back into the scan - and a scanned channel into lockout.
Without knowing your scanner model - it's difficult to tell you exactly how to do it. If my suggestions do not work, reply and include the brand and model number so I can get you the exact steps to solve your problem.
Good luck!

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.
2. Press and hold LOCKOUT to unlock all channels. The L/O indicator goes out on any channel previously locked out.

I have a Uniden BC60XLT that I can not program because of the L/O and a HOLD being displayed, I enter the frequencies as instructed it gives me an "error" message - I paid a lot of money for this...


The ERROR message usually indicates that you're attempted to enter frequency that's out of the scanner's tuning range. Check the manual for the bands covered by your scanner.

L/O indicates a single channel lockout. To release it, press the L/O key while stopped on that channel.

If the scanner still will not program, try a RESET. To do this, power the scanner OFF. then power it on while holding in the 2, 9, and MANUAL keys. This action will erase all data previously programmed into the scanner and restore it to the original factory settings.

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

Best is to call a auto salvage yard, it will be cheap, as they don thave much of a market for them.

Just bought this scanner used and having problems with Banks 3 and 4


while the scanner is scanning press buttons 3 and 4 and they should start scanning too, if they dont then go to the first channel in bank 3 manually and press LO to unlock it, then hit manual again to go to the next channel and press LO again to unlock it( all of the channels in the bank are probably either locked out or empty(nothing programmed into them)
