Why would you try to disconnect the squelch? If you turn it one way, it does not work at all. If you don't get any sound it won't be caused by the squelch circuit. You really have to look somewhere else if you don't get any sound.

Testimonial: "the problem is that the squelch is that the squelch stays on most of the time not allowing to scan"

This is an internal problem that can only be repaired by a technician familiar with Bearcat scanners. If you live near NJ, call 973-831-5900.

SOURCE: Uniden UBC72XLT scanner problem.

The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

SOURCE: BC370CRS Scanner will not work

Are you certain that the frequencies you programmed are active in your area? Does the scanner work on the weather band, service search, or AM/FM?

SOURCE: I have a Uniden BC72XL scanner and cats knocked it

In your manual, if you have one, if not look it up on the internet. There are ways with all these types of communications, to reset to manufacturer and factory settings at time of new purchase. Then proceed forward in programming.

I NEED SCANNER CODES?


It depends on your location. Try this link http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db

You will also need to know if your state and city switched to digital.
If not then it should work fine, but if they did you will need a new scanner because you have an analog scanner. There is a big push to switch over to digital radios in police, firefighter, military because it's more secure to use.

Broken squelch button on the bc898t


Because the sqelch control is broken, you may have to send your scanner to Uniden for repair

The squelch will not turn down?


Sounds like your squelch pot is either shot or disconnected. If you're electronics handy, you can troubleshoot it yourself and replace the pot if necessary. You can also send the scanner to Uniden for repair. Follow the link below for troubleshooting help or to contact Uniden regarding repair.

I LOST MY MANUAL TO MY UNIDEN BEARCAT BC142XL CAN I GET A FREE REPLACEMENT?


A number of scanner manuals can be found online however I don't know the difficulty of finding it for this unit. More than likely if you need printed material sent to you it will cost you.

To program the BC142xl 10-channel scanner:

Press the Manual button. Continue to keep pressing the Manual button until you are at one of the ten channels you wish to program the frequency into

Press the E button

Enter the frequency you want to store in this channel

Press the E button - Your frequency is now stores in this channel.

To later see what frequencies you have stores use the Review button.
