Question about Uniden BC60XLT-1 Handheld Scanner
My Uniden Bearcat 30 channel 10 band radio scanner (model BC60XLT-1) fell on the floor when it was plugged into an adaptor. After that, it didn't work, except with the batteries. Now, it doesn't work at all - maybe the batteries died. Something must have happened inside where the adapter plugs into the scanner. What could have happened and can it be fixed? If so, how?
Writer1, if your talking about the voltage adapter that plugs into the wall socket to the scanner, then probably what happened was the socket is soldered to the circuit board, and it probably got knocked loose. Possibly tore some solder traces loose,wouldn't know without looking at it. Take a pencil or pen and gently push on the center pin of the adapter and see if it moves around. It should not move. Any good electronic repair shop should be able to repair it. The only problem might be if the socket itself is cracked and broken. Their usually made of plastic, with the metal contacts inside. I know this is probably not the answer you were looking for, but it's the best I can do from long distance. Good luck with it and let us know how it comes out,,, Mechanic
