Question about Uniden Radio Communications

Uniden SC230 Radio Scanner

The display screen starts strong, but starts to fade after 5 minutes to a very faint almost blank image. At first I thought it was low charged batteries, but this problem happens when I remove the batteries and plug in the AC adapter.

Without having the scanner to examine, my first thought is that you have the squelch set too high, and the signal is not very strong. Try putting and external antenna on the radio and see if you don't get better copy.

Lastly, there could be a problem with the radio as well, but like I said, without examining the radio I can't know that.

sounds like you have another channel set for priority and it is scanning back to check that channel. In the manual mode scroll thru channel's until you find one set with a "p" or "pri" on the screen. Hit the priority button and this should resolve the problem.

Wow, Uniden did their best to make the SC230 manual confusing, didn't they? Here's a link to a much easier to read/use manual that was put together by an SC230 owner who couldn't figure out the factory document. I hope it helps.

The lock out function is a common problem in scanners, to override the lockout command, you can press and hold the lock out button, or punch in the frequency that you locked out and unlock it by pressing the appropriate buttons depending on the model of your scanner. Here is a suggestion, for easy scanning I recommend a Regency Touch K500 Scanner. It may be hard to find one though, Regency went out of business a while back, but I had the K500 and it was the best scanner I ever had.

1. Cellular is blocked out on most scanners. You might find a mod on the internet to unblock it....but

2. Most cellular now a days is digital anyway, so even if you could listen to the frequency, it would just be noise.
