BC2500XLT Not picking up any signal

I have a BC2500XLT. and I am unable to pick up any transmissions with the exception of really high frequencies, like in the 900+MHz range.... I am using the stock rubber ducky that came with it. the only way to get it to stop scanning is to open the squelch all the way. this scannner seems to have gotten a lot of use, perhaps it is a component failure? or maybe a bad antenna connection?(as High frequencies do come in) i contacted Uniden and they do have a Service Manual, I just have to pay $35.....There is a BC3000XLT Service manual online for free....but I am pretty sure these are two completely different animals on the inside.

No, it is not possible to restore these frequencies, The only services that should be in this range (at least in the USA) are radio-control for model airplanes and broadcast FM radio.

Not sure this would be a solution but...
Make sure you don't have the Ch. Locked out so it just skips them..

You may also try and let the scanner sit on one frequency that you know has chatter and see if you receive.

This unit also picks up local weather try that feature and you can tell if you reception is working or not.

Sounds like you may have accidentally pressed the "LOCK" button. If there's a "key" icon showing, press the LOCK button at the bottom left of your keyboard, and hold it in until the icon disappears. In case you need it, here is a link to the operating manual for your scanner:

I have new Uniden Bearcat bct 15x scanner that will not pick up the frequencies I enter. It does however pick up the weather frequency. Can you help?

Without knowing the frequencies, it is hard to diagnose. If you are trying to listen to police, fire, govt freguencies, the transmissions are scrambled or use split multiple frequencies. You will not be able to receive any voice without the key. If channel jumping is used, you will only hear a veryquick burst of audeo if you are lucky enough to be listening to the correct fequency asthe signal travels by onto the next frequency.

Sennheiser Wireless Headphone picks up unwanted transmissions

This headset uses a 900 MHz frequency for connection from the headset to the base.
You will always incur lots of interference in a busy office using that frequency band. Any antennas on the roof or close by?
Amateur radio users?
The other thing, you might have a faulty power supply or "dirty power" coming into the unit. You can try and isolate in a current regulating power bar and see if that helps.
Else, consider changing technologies and moving to, say a DECT band.
Avoid, 2.4 and 5 GHz bands as they are in the wireless devices range and likely will incur equal amounts of interference.

Unit is an AKG SR40 Dual Pro Wireless receiver, PT 40 transmitter. 662.3Mhz operating frequency. The right side channel is hypersensitive and indicates that it is picking up a signal when the transmitter...

I would suggest that you change your operating frequency. The antenna being removed suggests that the receiver is picking up interference on that frequency. This frequency is in the UHF TV band, and although analog TV no longer exists, digital TV still uses some of the frequencies.

BC244CLT Base Scanner: scanner stopped picking up all freq...

If your Scanner has a button labeled ATT or Attenuation try pressing the button, Attentuation is used to block out extremely strong signals and would be used when you are really close to a Transmitter that is transmitting on a frequency close to yours so you can pick up more distant Transmitters.

Need to use my car radio frequency for my dvd (make is unknown) player but can't figure out which station!

You want to pick a frequency where there isn't an existing station, so the radio will have a clear signal from the dvd player.

If the DVD player only has a few frequencies to choose from, then tune the radio to each one (with the DVD player turned OFF) and see which one has the most static and the least signal from radio stations in your area.

If the DVD player can be set to any frequency, then just pick a frequency (usually down on the "88" side of the FM band) with the least local signal, then set your DVD player to use that frequency.

Does this make sense? Feel free to ask questions with the "add comment" link.
If this solves it for you, please be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!
