Question about Uniden Radio Communications

Uniden Bearcat BCD996T will not squelch, just has constant noise on every channel. Any ideas on what has happened

Squelch will not work. As soon as you turn the scanner on it boots up and then the first channel it hits, it opens with constant noise. If I manually change frequencies it does the same thing.

Have you done a reset just to make sure something such as static did not change the software in the microprocessor? Try that before you go to a repair shop.

SOURCE: NO SQUELCH

I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Sincerely

Greg Stevens

Check if one of the batteries MIGHT be in backwards.

NEXT check EACH cell as occassionally you get a bad one brand new.

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: can't break squelch ? Have Uniden Bearcat hand held scanning radi

Look at the squelch knob. If it is turned fully counterclockwise, it is in "Auto". Turn the knob clockwise to enter the manual mode and adjust the range untill static is heard. Reverse direction until the static is no longer heard.

What did you mean by change the squelch?


The squelch control gets rid of the hissing on a blank channel. Finda blank channel, turn up the squelch control until the hissing stops. The scanner should then scan the channels and stop on a busy one.

I have a bc60xlt andno matter how i turn the squelch i get the same hiss what happened


The Bearcat Scanner is neat hand held scanner, Is the scanner programed? Depress the WX for weather and see if the weather channel is available. The squelch knob should be turned clockwise and the noise level should decrease (actually you are decreasing the allowable signals to be received). If you get no response from a know frequency, then the squelch pot may need cleaning or replacement may be in order.....Cost for repair at service shop may not be feasible.

Help setting up bc145xl scanning radio


you have to adjust the squelch. When it scans it will stop when ever the squelch breaks. Start with the squelch turned up a little less then half way, then scan.
