The general reset is press 2-4-9 together while turning it on. The second way is to press an hold down the 2-9 together an turn on radio. Some go with 3 an some are just 2 numbers. Try this.

danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.
Hope this helps you out, let us know,, Mechanic

I can't locate information specific to the 210XW, but hopefully this generic Bearcat programming info will help:
1. Press the MANUAL key to advance to the channel that you wish to reprogram.
2. Enter the new frequency, including decimal point.
3. Press the ENTER or E key.
4. Start over with step one to continue programming channels.
