Question about Uniden BC246T Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

No audio, scroll knob not working.

My bc246t rolled off a picnic table and now has these problems. Is this unit really this fragile? That seems ridiculous. Anyway, no problems up to this point and I've owned it about 1-1/2 yrs. Can't get it to do anything now due to faulty scroll knob and no sound in either speaker or ear phones.

Dropped BC246T fix:

Open up the back of the scanner (6 screws-2 in the battery compartment and 4 on the outside of the case). There are 2 circuit boards inside joined by a connector which can be dislodged just enough to break contact if dropped. My unit seemed to partially work because apparently one board is logic and the other controls reception. Anyway, gently push the top board into the bottom one and that should fix the problem. The connector is located towards the lower right part of the circuit board as you look at the unit with the back off. If this doesn't fix it you may need to loosen the screws to the top board and make sure you have the connector alligned properly-it made it easier for me to know where to push.

By the way-do i get paid for my solution by as your 'experts were going to charge me a fee??? Just wondering..fair is fair you know : )

Hopefully this will help someone else with my problem.

Eating a picnic outside can be a wonderful setting for a party, family meal or even a more elegant dinner party.

There are lots of ways to decorate your every day picnic table so that it provides a really inspirational setting for your picnic.
  • Firstly you need to clean off the picnic table and chairs and wash them down if they are really dirty.
  • Next select a tablecloth - bright colors really help to lift the atmosphere.
  • If you want to pick a theme for your decorations i.e. a color or pattern, you can use the theme for tableware and even food ideas.
  • Use fresh flowers - either hanging around the table if you have something to tie them to, or in glass bottles on the table itself. The fresher the better!
  • Use a centerpiece to really showcase the table. Flowers, sweets, fruit or candles are all good ideas.
  • Put the silverware in matching containers along with plates and napkins at one end and food at the other.
  • Now sit back and enjoy your picnic.

How do you collapse the little tykes picnic table?

Flip over the picnic table and have a screw driver ready. There are 4 "braces" screwed into place to ensure the picnic table does not collapse on your children.

Once the braces are removed, you should be able to apply just a bit of pressure and fold the picnic table down flat.
