SOURCE: programing for uniden bearcat scanner bc 144xl

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

SOURCE: I don't have the manual for my Uniden Bearcat BC 855 scanner.

You can download/print the complete manual for your scanner by following the link below. It's a free download, and it provides detailed programming instructions. If you're programming a channel that is "empty" (showing 000.0000) just enter your frequency. Empty channels automatically show LOCKOUT but it clears with programming. The squelch setting will vary according to the strength of the signals you receive. Once you start scanning, turn the squelch down until scanning stops and you hear a hissing sound, then turn the control up slowly until scanning resumes.

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

How to completely remove a program from a Mac!

All of us who use macs sometimes, or occasionally can't get that program off our computer!
Well now you can!
Step 1- Go on Finder Step 2- Click on "Applications" Step 3- Find that pesky program! Step 4- Drag it to the trash can. Step 5- Empty the trash can & Voila'.
However, again, sometimes, we face that very program that just won't leave! No matter how much we try! After reviewing & testing many macintosh programs for 2 1/2 weeks, I found the perfect & free program called 'Trash It!'
Its a simple program, all there is to it is plainly downloading it.Once its done, you're ready to delete anything you want with a simple click & adding your password!

It does not let me start up my web cam anymore.

Hi. Thanks for your question.
The easy way around your problem would be doing system restore. Which means that you would restore your system to the settings from previous time. To do so you need to follow these simple steps:
  1. Go to Start------>All programs-----> Accessories------->System Tools------> System Restore
  2. Once in System restore program please choose date when your cam worked ok.
  3. Your system will reboot once restoring has finished.
You should hopefully be able to use your cam now. Please let me know if this was helpful. Do not hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed. Thank You for using FixYa.

Need steps to do code search or enter codes for durabrand tv

Hello www_pokymom1,

Try this for the auto code search,

Turn on the component you want to program.
  • Step 2 Press and release the component button on your remote that corresponds to the component you want the remote to operate (TV, VCR, etc.). The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn on and remain on.
  • Step 3 Press both the component and the ON-OFF buttons. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn off, and then will come back on.
  • Step 4 Release both buttons after the ON-OFF button turns back on. The button should remain illuminated.
  • Step 5 Press and release the PLAY button. If the component does not respond after five seconds, continue to press the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off.
  • Step 6 Press and release the REVERSE button when the component turns off, then wait to see if the component turns on again.
  • Step 7 Press and release the STOP button to save the new code.
