You have done the most obvious steps but you may also want to check that the squelch is not turned up to high if using it in FM freq. On some scanners the squelch may have a different function when used on AM USB etc.

Check that any noise blanking functions are not set incorrectly too.

A quick check would be ti tune to a known FM radio station in your area that you can hear on a normal radio and then do the same with your scanner. If using FM also make sure you are using the correct FM eg FMW or FMN wide / narrow.

I have included the links and info below and will let you take it from there

Heads up that in some countries / States scanning can carry severe penalty.

I cannot give any direct information and it up to you to make sure you apply to the laws of your state etc

A good source of information are the two sites below


Scanner software

With any luck you will also find either the manual or a link to it there as well as quite a lot of other useful information that would give you guidance as to the legality and use of your scanner.

Helo there:
if the radio is working just go to yahoo and search for this : police scanner frequencies then just look for your area and enter the numbers and you will be able to hear local stations ok?

Why won't my samsung smart tv emote wont change chanel

It needs to be Re-Paired to the TV.

First, fresh batteries, and clean battery contacts if needed.

Then, Try Pairing procedure:

  1. TV off
  2. Bring remote within 3 feet of TV
  3. Push Pairing button (Paper Clip or other pointed object in button hole)
  4. Turn on TV
  5. Should be paired. Try remote channel or other buttons.
  6. If not, try 2 more times.
  7. If still not working, push RESET button first and repeat Pairing.

Samsung remotes for LED / LCD TVs are generally RF, not IR.
Most Universal remotes do not generate RF signals, so disregard advice about codes for Universals.

  1. TV off

Within 3 feet of TV

PAIRING and RESET buttons:

Good Luck !!

Can you connect directly from the DTV converter to the DVD recorder input using RCA phono connector cables? You'll have to select the input on the recorder menu as well.

Hi im using the iphone 2g, first of all, my sleep / wake button didnt work a few months ago. So i cant turn the iphone off or use any restart mode without using jailbreak software, just now, the iphone...

To reset your phone you need to hold the power button and home button. Because you cannot do this, I would open up the iphone and repair the button. To open up easily use a -> iPhone Cheetah Mount and replace or fix the button. The iPhone is like a computer, it needs to reset at times. Your only solution would be to let the battery drain to zero and plug it back in.

You have to have a remote control to set the chanel to 00. You cannot set the chanel to 00 with the chanel buttons on the front of the tv.
