Please Provide Basic Instructions For Programming My Scanner

Hello. I appreciate any help that is offered to me. I recently my scanner as a gift. I am having great difficulty understanding how to use it. I think I programmed the trunked frequencies because when I chose srch the ids flashed on the screen. The next confusion is creating IDS. The manual describes everything in a complicated way. I was wondering if anyone could send basic instructions from all the steps. Thank you very much for your help. Alisa

How do I program my bearcat 144xl scanner?


The BC144XL is one of the few scanners that I haven't been able to locate a manual for, but programming it is fairly straight forward. Here's some guidance from Uniden:

Here are basic instructions for programming nearly all of the older scanners that Uniden produced. When the scanner is turned on press the MANUAL key, then press the channel number that you want to program first, then the MANUAL key again. This will stop the scanner from scanning and hold it on the channel that you want to program.
Then you enter the frequency (be sure to use the decimal point in the right area when entering in the frequency) and then press the E or ENTER button to save the frequency on the channel. You are now finished programming the channel. To advance to the next channel simply press the MANUAL key and enter your next frequency the same way that you entered it on the previous channel (as described at the beginning of this paragraph).

I hope this helps.

Visioneer One Touch 8700 USB Scanner lock mechanism problems


Not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but I encountered the same error and only to find that I plugged in a wrong power adapter so it didn't have enough power to advance the scanner head (My moving caused this mixup). Check your power adapter OUTPUT is 12V (or whatever is specified on the scanner itself, usually found on the label on the bottom or rear).
