Re: led on a uniden grant xL


All LEDs are polarity sensitive since they are unidirectional (anode & cathode). If the LED was connected the other way around, then even with a known good new LED, it won't light up. At other times, it is possible that the LED has a limiting resistor and/or another diode in series with its supply line. You need to check if this is also open.

Good luck and kind regards.

I pulled u uhf out of my vehicle and replaced it with a pro 520 xl uniden uhf but it won't work.

Check your electrical connections and your antenna set up first. Then if you still have a problem, check your mic/mic plug. Lastly, check your programming. If you have ignition sense programmed into the radio you will need to wire it accordingly, so it will sense the ignition of the vehicle.

Best regards.

Uniden grant lt transmit and receives normally but when i key up on AM the AM power regulator gets hot quick i changed out the driver and final and replaced the regulator still does the same thing and it...

Sounds like a "short" if it affects modulation + power. Try to inspect board with magnifier for solder bridges, and bad resistors. Change a few resistors near back with new ones. take out slugs near back finals like L10 or L20's not sure if its same as Uniden Pc68xl. but try that. I found turning L19 up to top gave great Modulation. clip D9, Sread coils 1/16 inch in back. Try to get lower carrier. Carrier does not mean anything much. Modulation is what you need. With less Carrier it may cool down that chip. It may be too wound out.

Uniden pc68xl does not tx or rx. all lights comes on. I have no schematics to work with.

Try to change a 1k resistor R6(I believe) near back of radio. If not, try to change Final. Maybe small transistors near center back to back of radio. If you're not experienced take it to a Radio shop. Sorry i don't have much on this problem.

Blown fuse and reverse polarity diode

Check around the pcboard where the dc goes to the board, sometimes the foil will burn. Also chec the transformer, Chec that one of the wires did not come off the plug in the back. When you replaced the protection diode did it blow again? If not keep checking for opens on the pc board. When you said it was dead do you mean no lights at all or no tx and rx?
