Question about Uniden Two-Way Radios

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.

Your radio is either stuck in VOX mode, or has a bad PTT button. Sometimes when using an audio device a radio will stick in Tx if the device is plugged in while the radio is turned on. When using any remote mic, earpiece, headset, or audio device be certain the radio is turned off when plugging or unplugging the device.

If no audio device is being used, the next possibility is a sticky or bad PTT button. This can sometimes be just the external button sticking, or it can be the internal button has simply worn out from repeated use.

One final thought, if your radio has programmable VOX, check to see if your programming is correct. VOX features when turned on make the radio Tx when it hears any sound, a voice or ambient noise can cause the radio to transmit.

Best regards.

Hand held scanner to open a box?


If you were to have it open using any barcode, you could build a circuit that uses the beep of the scanner when it reads a barcode.

If you wanted it to only work with specific barcodes it would get far more complicated, you could right a program that displays a white or black box in a corner of your computer screen and just build a simple light detection circuit and tape the CDS Cell of the circuit on your screen where that box gets displayed.

Looking for part number ''po 838AA'' Push to talk button, volume control circuit board. With price and where to get it. Thanks


As far as I know, the BCD396T scanner does not have a push to talk button since it is only a receiver.

If this is the correct model for which you are trying to find a part, they can be ordered directly from Uniden.
