Question about Uniden BC780XLT Base Scanner
The BC780XLT is a 2000 model, so your "new" scanner is actually about 10 years old. Your lack of volume control indicates that the ON/OFF/VOLUME control "pot" is defective and needs to be replaced. It looks to be on the same shaft as the SQUELCH, so the Uniden part is likely a combination of the two controls. I suggest that you contact Uniden Customer Service (see link below) and inquire about parts availability and/or factory repair. Due to the age of the unit though, there's a good chance that the control is no longer available -- unless it's being used on a newer model as well. Your other option is to try to work out a return or file an eBay/PayPal claim. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
