I have a uniden BC246T and want to reset it and just add my local frequencies. but cant seem to figure it out.


The easiest way to program your scanner is to download software from www.butel.nl for your scanner. You will be able to manage your scanner better and you can download frequencies for your area from www.radioreference.com .

Cannot for the life of me figure out how to program this!


You need to obtain local frequency numbers for your area.
google search, "radio frequencies" and you county, city name...it'll give you lists of frequencies to enter into your scanner..
Your user manual should show you the step by step with which buttons to push... are you having difficulty entering the frequency numbers?

Blank screen goes in and out


My 2096 was doing the same thing with a blank screen. IF, your scanner is scanning normally and the dim button still dims your display, your problem could be the same as mine was. This worked for me and got my display working like new again. First thing to do is to take the covers both top and bottom off to expose your scanners insides.Next, once you can see the inside of your scanner you will see a ribbon cable connected to the main board and also soldered to the display. Take the ribbon out of its coupling connector and gently clean the contacts on the ribbon with a cuetip with alcohol on it, also clean the solder joints on the display face that connect the ribbon to the display with the cuetip and alcohol. Ii then reassembled everything, ribbon back into its connector and made sure the clamping mechanisim on the ribbon was securely holding the ribbon. I pluged the power supply into it and turned it on before reassemblig the case covers to see if it would work. Bingo, it worked like new again. Hope it works for you ! Jim

Sounds like you fried something by reversing the polarity. Repair will likely be expensive, but check with the manufacturer to find out if they have a flat-rate service charge, if so they will most likely replace it with a refurbished scanner.

Unkown functions


Lo Hi Air UHF refer to separate bands to be monitored.

25 50 75 are the KHZ steps that can be set for searching.

Using these functions can limit what is found either during close call or during search. By switching to 25 50 or 75 in will search in those size jumps. IE in 25 155.000 155.025 155.050 155.075 etc.
