I have a Uniden bc95xlt scanner! it is less than 1 yr. old. it will lock on to a channel and not unlock to continue scanning. I can't find my paperwork to prove age of scanner! Pls. Help!

Hi Jan,

It sounds to me as if your scanner is locking on to a 'BIRDIE', which is an internally generated frequency in the scanner, all scanners have this by default, your user manual usually has a page, near the back of the manual, with known 'birdies', and there a lots.

When your scanner locks onto a 'BIRDIE', which is a frequency with no voice audio, the best thing to do is press Lockout button, during the scan, your scanner will, if there is no other problem with it, continue to scan, until it finds another 'BIRDIE', then you do the same thing as I've described, until you've locked out all the 'BIRDIES'.

I hope this info was useful.

Getting original display back

Hi Steve,
read the user manual very carefully, it will show you step by step instructions on how to use your scanner.

Before you do anything else, turn off the scanner and remove the batteries, leave it off for at least 1 hour, to allow the scanner to reset to factory default status, yes it means you will lose any frequencies you may have programmed in, but if you're a radio buff like me, you would have a hard copy of your favourite frequencies somewhere safe.

Once you have read the instructions, get your scanner up and running again, you should fin the default screen is back again, and you can use the manual to get you up and scanning the right way without locking up the screen.

I hope this has been helpful.

How do i start scanning for channels on my bc 855 xlt scanner


Firstly, you need to program your favourite frequencies into it, before you can receive anything, all the info on setting up your scanner is in the user manual that came with your scanner, if you bought it new, that is.
