The lock out function is a common problem in scanners, to override the lockout command, you can press and hold the lock out button, or punch in the frequency that you locked out and unlock it by pressing the appropriate buttons depending on the model of your scanner. Here is a suggestion, for easy scanning I recommend a Regency Touch K500 Scanner. It may be hard to find one though, Regency went out of business a while back, but I had the K500 and it was the best scanner I ever had.

sounds like you have another channel set for priority and it is scanning back to check that channel. In the manual mode scroll thru channel's until you find one set with a "p" or "pri" on the screen. Hit the priority button and this should resolve the problem.

My old scanner had 20 banks of 10 freq. each, am having trouble understanding the instructions for the SC230. Is there a site or booklet that has the instructions spelled out simplier.? thanks Ed...


Wow, Uniden did their best to make the SC230 manual confusing, didn't they? Here's a link to a much easier to read/use manual that was put together by an SC230 owner who couldn't figure out the factory document. I hope it helps.

How do you manually program known frequencies in a Uniden BC350C scanner? There are no numerals to key in.


Sorry, but your BC350C is an oddball that does not allow manual programming. You have to lock on to a freq in the SCAN or SEARCH mode, and then move it to the PRIVATE bank. Details are in the operating manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:

Major Functions of Uniden BC 855 XLT Desktop Scanner

RANGES AND MODES:
29-54 MHz; 137-174 MHz; 406-512 MHz; and 806-956 MHz NFM; 118-136 MHz AM

MEMORIES & MEMORY SCANNING:
• The 855 receives mainly via frequencies programmed into its 50 memory channels. It does not have a VFO or dial mode as such, but can scan within two frequencies.
• To scan memory channels, press SCAN. To hold a channel, press MANUAL.
• The 50 channels are divided into 5 banks (Bank 1: Channels 1-10, Bank 2: 11-20, etc.).
• Any of the 5 banks can be turned off from scanning. To turn a bank on/off, press its number while in Scan Mode. Active banks are illuminated in the display.
• SPEED toggles between 8 & 16 channels per second in both scan & search modes.
TO ENTER A FREQUENCY IN A MEMORY CHANNEL:
• Press MANUAL.
• Press the channel number you wish to program using keypad.
• Press MANUAL again.
• Enter the desired frequency using the keypad.
• Press E (ENTER). (If you make an ERROR, press CLEAR & re-enter frequency.)

• Press LIMIT.
• Press SEARCH.

I couldn't locate the manual for your scanner, but it's basically the same as the BC860XLT, except that the 860 has 100 channels. Other than that, all controls and functions are the same. You can download and print the manual for the 860 here:

BC72XLT program/scanning problems


1. If you mean on "bank" of channels, then you have locked out the others. To unlock them, place the scanner in "scan" mode & press each button that corresponds to each locked out bank until all are "on", as indicated near the top of the LCD. If you can't scan "bands", meaning all frequencies between 25-54, 118-174 & 406-512 Mhz, you may be stuck in the "capture" mode. Let me know if this is the case (not likely) & I'll coach you through it.

2. No.

3. No.

1. Cellular is blocked out on most scanners. You might find a mod on the internet to unblock it....but

2. Most cellular now a days is digital anyway, so even if you could listen to the frequency, it would just be noise.
