Question about Uniden BC60XLT-1 Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

Turning off the l/o button and programming issues.

How do I get the l/o button to turn off. It seems to be stuck. I accidentially turned it on when I was trying to program a channel. Just holding it in for a few seconds didn't work.

Also, in trying to program a channel I pressed manual, selected channel 2, then entered the frequency (464.xxx) and pressed enter. It didn't stick. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your assistance.

To restore a locked out channel press MANUAL then enter tha channel number then press MANUAL again, then press LO to unlock it. To restore all locked out channels press MANUAL and then press and hold LO for about two seconds until you hear two beeps from your scanner, then your frequencies have been unlocked.

Hope this helps!

Uniden 796d was trying to program trunk line pushed mutltablr buttons now wont turn on


First try doing a reset first. If uou hold down 2,4,an 9 while turning it on it should reset. If not use 2 an 4. This works many times. Also have you tried connecting to the computer with it? I would try the factory rest first.

It used to be that you could reset a Uniden scanner by holding down the #2 and #9 buttons while turning on the radio - that MIGHT do a factory reset for you. Let me know.

If all else fails, you can INITIALIZE the scanner to return it to the original factory settings. This will erase everything that you've programmed into it though, so be prepared to reprogram all your frequencies/systems. To INITIALIZE the PRO-164:
- Turn the scanner OFF, then turn it ON again. "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" will appear on the display.
- While "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" is displayed, press the "0" key.
- Press the "1" key.
- Press the "ENT" key. "Initializing please stand by" will appear on the display for about 5 seconds. The process is complete when the display switches to "M000" and "Bank 0 CH 00".

NOTE: Do not power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete.

Can't get audio on Bearcat 244CLT scanner, or get any of the buttons to operate properly. Can set the clock, but that's it. Volume and Squelch set all the way to right, not even static sound. Nothing on...


You can try a master reset. This will delete any frequencies that are programmed. Here is the way to do a reset...
Turn scanner off. Hold down, 2-9-HOLD (all three keys at once)while turning on the scanner. Keep holding the keys down for about 3 seconds. The word CLEAr should come up on the screen.

Stuck on scan mode


Hi, It sounds to me like your keypad is locked. Pg 63 of your manual.
***using the keylock ***
Once you program your scanner, you can protect it from accidental program changes by turning on the key lock feature. When the keypad is locked, the only controls that operate are FUNC, key , SQ, and VOL. You cannot activate the keylock while you are entering a frequency into a channel. To turn on the keylock, press FUNC then key . Key locked appears for about 1 second. Key locked appears when you press any key after locking the keypad.
To turn off the keylock, press FUNC then key . The scanner beeps three times and Key unlocked appears.
The only other choice I see if that does not work would be to initialize it. Pg 84 of your manual. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic

If it just seems to be "stuck" on static, you probably need to adjust the Squelch. Try turning the squelch down until the static stops.
If you haven't programmed any frequencies into the banks, scanning won't do anything. Press "Func" and "Scan" to perform a Search. This way, if you find a frequency with a lot of chatter, you can program it into a bank for scanning later.
The easiest thing to do is to find frequencies for your local police, fire, etc. on the internet & program them into the various banks on the scanner.
