If all channels are locked out, that normally happens if the battery is allowed to run completely down for awhile. If that's the problem, you should be able to turn the Lockout off on any channel using the L/O button. If it is simply that the L/O button isn't working and the other keys are still working as they should, the conductive material on back of the L/O key may have worn off. I do not know if those keyboards are still available or not. If not, I have seen 200XLTs on ebay for as little as $10. I have also repaired them by cutting a tiny circle of aluminum HVAC tape and sticking it to the back of the faiIed key. If you can elaborate a little more on exactly what's happening, I may be able to troubleshoot further.

Uniden gmr2638_2ck is always stuck on receive. Rd is always showing and static coming from the speaker

Adjust your SQUELCH control or setting so that the noise disappears. The RX indicator will go out.

My uniden UH3O5sx is always stuck on receive (rx is always showing) can receive but not transmit

Set up your privacy tones or adjust the squelch level to stop the static and bring the handy out of receive mode. Some models have a busy channel lock out, that if it beleives it hears something it will not let you transmit over the other station.

My uniden bearcat 50 channel 800mhz stop the police,fire ect.. and only gives me weather.. why? can you help ?

  • You can try pressing "Manual" and then "Scan" or "Band" buttons from the weather setting to get you back to scanning the police, fire,etc.
  • Make sure you don't have a WX (Weather) frequency programmed into on of the regular 50 channels or the scanner will continue to stop every time around as it will pick up the WX frequency.
  • Make sure you have your scanner programmed as well.

What does the key on the bottom row of keys as well as the other four buttons mean they are LIGHT, WX, L/ O, PRI

From your description, it sounds like your scanner is actually a BC60XLT-1, which is different from the BC60XLT. On the "dash one" the key with the key symbol is for locking and unlocking the keyboard to prevent accidental entries. Press and hold it to lock the keyboard (a key symbol will appear on the display); press and hold it again to unlock the keyboard for normal use. The LIGHT key will temporarily turn on the display backlight for night viewing. The WX key switches the scanner to monitoring of the NOAA weather channels. Pressing the WX button will result in scanning until the unit locks on to a weather channel/frequency that's in use of your area. Press the SCAN key to resume normal operation. Pressing L/O key will lockout whatever channel you are listening to. Pressing it again while stopped on that frequency will restore it to normal monitoring. Pressing PRI will set the selected channel/frequency for priority monitoring, causing the scanner to sample that frequency for activity every few seconds, and to lock onto it if activity is detected. Pressing the key again, while that channel is selected, will release the priority function.

For full information on the functions and capabilities of the scanner, as well as detailed information on how to program it, you can download and print the operating manual, free of charge, here:

That model was the first prototype of the Uniden Bearcat Electra BC780XLT-PPKL88 otherwise known as the BC780XLT. That manual that you got for the XLT model should work just fine, the only difference is that the XLT has more features than the HLT. The HLT came with its own manual, but it wasn't very accurate either, just try to make due with the manual you've got. If you want a scanner that is easier to use, you should get a Regency Touch K500. The Touch K500 can scan up to the 900MHz range and has VHF/UHF/FM/AM/CB/WX/AIR scanning capabilities. It even comes pre-programmed with international channels. It also has an automatic Weather Alert Notifier Bank already programmed into its internal memory. In short, the K500 is the ultimate scanner. However it will be hard to find because Regency went out of business a while back.

Good Luck!
