In recent years public service and all land mobile has moved to narrow band FM from the old 12.5khz or 5khz bandwidth FM to new 2.5 and 1.25 khz format.
The older scanners will play these transmissions with much lower volume and there is nothing that can be done to the scanner to solve this.
You can buy an amplified speaker and use that to further boost the audio or just replace the scanner with a new scanner built by Uniden or GRE (General Research Electronics) who make almost every scanner on the market. Both are good units.

Why don't I have volume on my scanner?


Thank you for asking me to help with your problem unfortunately I do not assist with scanners. When I worked as a Police Dispatcher I had two officers killed because someone with a scanner told the suspects the officers were coming and they were ambushed. Scanners on Police and Fire frequencies should be outlawed.

Depending on where you are your local police may be using encryption technology that will only let you hear beeps and tones without a proper decoder device.

Chances are that your police communications have moved to a trunked radio system, while fire and EMS remain on a "standard" system for compatibility. For the latest information on active frequencies and systems in your area, visit www.RadioReference.com

Can barely hear anything of any audio but device manager says audio device working


Right click your volume icon in notification area and adjust volume settings in there. Try headphones and see if its still the same, in case its your actual speakers going bad.
