Re: ch lockout

Ok Another thing to look at the top right corner of the window and see a thing that looks like a key, That indacates that the scanner is locked and cannot be programed. In the lower left side there should be a button that has a raised bar around the button. That is the lockout key until that is pressed and you no longer see a symbol like a key in the window then now can you program the scanner.I'm saying this as i have a Bearcat 30 chan scanner that i bought about 10 years ago.also this phone # is on the bottom of the scanner. 1-800-297-1023 for service info. As it says on the tag.

P/S my scanner model # is BC60XLT

Re: ch lockout

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.

If all channels are showing the lockout icon, and all are displaying the frequency 000.0000, you just need to program the scanner. Entering a frequency will remove the lockout.

If all are showing lockout and programmed frequencies, and the scanner will not function, you need to initialize it. This procedure will erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner and restore it to original factory settings.

- Turn the scanner OFF, then power it ON again. "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" shows on the display.
- Press 0
- Press 1
- Press ENT
"Initializing please stand by" shows on the display for about 5 seconds.

Do not turn the scanner OFF until initializing is complete and the display shows "M000" on the top line and "Bank 0 Ch 0" on the third line.

Uniden 30 ch scanner i have locked out all channels.

Each channel with the zeroes means that it is a blank - with nothing programmed into it. Going to any one of them and programming a frequency will get rid of the zeroes and switch off the lockout. It's picking up weather, so it's working. Sounds like you just need to find and program active frequencies for your area, and the place to find them is:

If you need it, you can download and print the manual for the BC60XLT-1 here:
