Hello, my BC246T scanner has no sound, but it stops on different frequencies. I took the back off and try , checking the circuit boads, but did not solve sound problem. Is there anything else I can try. I would like to know if there's a mute botton on the radio? Thank you

Sorry, but the only mute function is in the external speaker and headphone jacks. Plugging into either one will mute/disconnect the internal speaker. Your scanner is about six years old, so it's possible that the speaker has quit working or that you have a problem with the audio amp. Try connecting either headphones or an external speaker to the appropriate jack. If you get audio through either one then chances are that you internal speaker is shot. No audio at all indicates a circuit problem that needs professional help. You local Radio Shack store can help with either problem. If they don't have the proper speaker in stock they can order one for you, and they can also arrange quality repair of your scanner. CAUTION: If you go the repair route, be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate before you commit. Repairs can approach or exceed the cost of a comparable new scanner. Good luck and happy scanning.

I have a uniden bc246t how can i get it to load channels, scan hold nothing stored


Hi,

Rather than loading frequencies via software, try programming manually, if that's going to be to hard, perhaps getting hold of a copy of the user manual (available from Radioshack or similar store) and it will tell you how in a step by step way.

You must have a list of frequencies in hard copy format to be able to do this, I've never used software to program my scanners, including my Uniden UBCD996T digital scanner, after all, half the fun is programming your favorites manually, so you learn how the scanner works.

I hope this is useful to you.
Cheers,
Peter

I just upgraded my firmware to version 2.6...will this scan garland, tx police


If Garland is using a conventional system or an analog trunking system, the BC246T can handle it. If they've gone digital, there's nothing you can do to the scanner to pull them in. For a list of the Garland systems and frequencies, check RadioRefernce.com or CityFreq.com
