Question about Uniden BC246T Handheld Scanner
There are at least three possible causes.
1. Dead/worn out batteries. If your batteries are more than a year old there's a good chance that it's time to replace them. Before you do that, though, check the batteries with a volt meter or try using them in something else that uses two AA batteries. If the batteries check out OK, then your problem is likely #2 or #3 below.
2. Bad charger. Check the output with a voltmeter or try charging another set of AA batteries (in the scanner) with it.
3. Corrosion buildup on the battery terminals and/or contacts in the scanner. If no buildup (usually a white, crusty substance) is visible, wipe both ends of the batteries, and the contacts inside the scanner with a clean, dry cloth, and then try charging them in the scanner. If there's a visible buildup, you can clean the batteries and scanner contacts with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper. Be sure to remove any residue from the battery compartment before you reinsert the batteries.
I hope this helps.
