Your scanner is about 30 years old, so the electronics are old and tired. The problem could be in the audio circuit, the volume "pot' control, or the speaker, but bear in mind that repairing this veteran will likely exceed the cost of a comparable new scanner. Depending on what the actual problem is, connecting an external speaker or headsets to the external speaker jack on the back of the scanner may extend its life.

Turned up full volume u can only just hear sound if ear right to it was working fine then the volume just ******** out


It could be the mic plug. uniden is known for the issue where the wires inside the mix plug break at the solder joints.

When the RX wire breaks, you will loose receive because the radio will not go into receive mode. But you can usually hear it ever so slightly if you crank the volume.

Other issue that may cause this. No radio activity, (unless you hear radio activity low and not static)

poor feed line or antenna.

I would try a different mic that is known to work.

I bought the hk3480 about 6yrs. ago. It was put in a rack and tested and then sat for the next 4yrs. unpluged. I got home and pluged it in hooked up some speakers and iw lit up all functions work etc....


Never use maximum volume for troubleshooting. The errant switch or control that you eventually find and flip will suddenly release the amp's full power and you'll destroy your speakers. If a signal isn't audible at 1/2 volume it's probably not there.


There is a good chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot through idleness and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.

Turn the volume to something reasonable and see if that helped.

Radio transmits fine but the receive volume is way down. Can hardly hear it with volume turned up full.


If you have talk back in this radio.( you hear your self through the radio when you transmit) then its a good bet that the RX wire in the mic plug has broken off.

The mic switch is responsible for putting the radio into receive mode when you release the key. If the RX wire is broken, the radio will not go into receive.

Normally when this happens you have no receive at all no matter what, but you will have very low sound if you have talk back installed in the radio.

Because of this, if you have talk back in your radio, and the volume is faint even at full blast, its a good bet that its a broken RX wire in the mic cord or plug.

You can attempt to see if the break is at the mic plug. if it is, you can re solder it and it will solve your problem. If you have no clue, then you can just go buy new 4 pin mic.

Uniden bearcat bc60xlt-1 channels wont unlock


Channels have to be programmed with a frequency before the scanner will allow them to be unlocked. The L/O indicator should automatically turn off once a frequency is in memory.
