If your lucky, its just the display that is broke. You can buy a replacement on ebay cheap. If its not that, you may have broke something else and you would have to trace it. It would need a tech.

If its still working other wise, just find channel 19. Go near a big highway and check all the channels until you find a lot of truckers talking. Then ask them if its 19. once you find 19, make a mark on the dial and on the radio face in the same spot. then when you put the marks together, you will be on 19. then you can just count up and down.

Each spot on the dial is a specific channel.

the other things to check. If you haven't test transmit on the radio, and just put power to it to see if it still worked, check (if it has them) either the cb/pa switch, and make sure its on CB, because some radio's when you go to pa the meter shuts off, and if you have it check the wx/cb switch. this is for weather. Make sure its on cb again, because again, sometimes this turns off the channel display.

If you haven't hooked it all the way up yet and just to power, you may have over looked that.

I have gotten worried quite a few times working on a radio and not realizing it was on pa or weather.

Fingers crossed. Hopefully you just didn't check the switches.

Best modulation for PC68XL

Most Cobra / Unidens are easy by clipping D9. On this one D9 and L19. Just turn up L19 to top. Clip D9 diode. spread coils 1/16" inch. Also use 100uf capacitor (-) toward final across JUMPER staple near Final Transistor in back. Use meter(adjust to best swing) spread back coils,remove L10,L20 slugs or adjust them to top. The only radio that clips different than D9 is Cobra 29Ltd (D11) or Uniden pro510xl(D14).

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.
