Radio not working properly

So I was listening to the radio the other day no problem, but then suddenly all of the higher frequencies including the station I was listening to only submit a high-pitched annoying squeal rather than whatever is supposed to be on the station. Any solutions or ideas as to what could have happened or is it time I resign myself to having to get a new radio?

Possible solution for some of the problems listed: Turn the clock upside down so that the label is readable in the upper left area. On the right side you will find a compartment which may have two "AA" batteries installed. These back up the setting when the clock is unplugged.

To reset the clock, you will have to BOTH remove the batteries AND unplug the AC power cord. Also, make sure the batteries are not dead.

Finally, although I cannot confirm this, there is an opening directly under the label (still looking at the bottom of the clock) which appears to be a "Reset" switch. A pointed object such as a ballpoint pen or toothpick will be needed to press this recessed button. Hope this helps. Mine is working just fine.

The power supply is starting to fail. There are a number of capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced. A local repair shop should be able to fix this easily. Figure on $10 max for parts.

Where can I find the frequencies for BC60XLT for Chippewa county, Wisconsin. Thank you.

I can suggest some resources that you can use to find the frequencies you're looking for.
One option is to check the website of the Chippewa County Sheriff's Office or the local government website for information on radio frequencies used by their departments. Another option is to visit the website of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and use their online database to search for radio frequencies assigned to Chippewa County.
You can also try searching for online forums or groups of radio enthusiasts or scanner hobbyists that may have information on frequencies used in the Chippewa County area.
It's important to note that you may need a license or permission to use certain frequencies, and it's always a good idea to check local regulations and guidelines before using any radio equipment.

Hello I have a RadioShack police scanner with frequencies on it I have had it for 5 years noe all of a sudden I ain't receiving any action and my squelch

The police and or fire department may have gone digital. an analog scanner will not pick that up. Often departments will switch their frequencies so the "bad guys" cannot listen in. They forget many of us "good guys" listen and can aid them.
Does the squelch make noise if you turn it all the way to open? Then you know the scanner is working.

How can I get my car radio unstuck from one station?

Try disconnecting the negative ground (-) cable from the battery. That will disconnect power to everything including your radio. It might reset it self when you restore power by reconnect the negative ground cable to the battery.

It used to work fine, but one day i was driving down the road and the incoming signal that i was listening to suddenly started to go away and then all i heard was engine noise, and no incoming...

sounds like a noise filtering issue, could be caused by the alternator. if it works fine with the engine off then the problem is going to be the alternator. It can also be a bad earth on the radio/antenna

Slightly off frequency is it possible to correct

I assume it is digital tuning?
If it is digital tuning the answer is no.
Sometimes reception is better when you purposely mis-tune by one digit lower or higher than the stations call numbers.
If it is under warranty, try exchanging it or just listen to and compare another one or more of the same model to hear if they are all slightly off frequency.

How to overcome encryption on police frequencies on my PRO 96 SCANNER. Stumped.

Law enforcement agencies employ a number of high-level encryption systems, including DES, to prevent eavesdropping on their radio communications. In addition, some EDACS trunking systems have a ProVoice option that encrypts communications to and from specific users. Sorry, but you will NOT "overcome" these encryption systems. Keys for the systems are updated regularly, so even if you "found" a radio from the system you would not be able to listen in for more than a day or so.

I have this scanner and it will scan but it wont pick nothin up

A couple of things could be involved in your problem. You need to be listening to the frequencies that are being used in your area, but most of them will not be transmitting all of the time. Something you can try is if you live maybe about 10-20 miles from an airport and your scanner picks up aircraft frequencies you can look up the airport and find the automated beacon frequency and tune that in. The automated beacon should be transmitting 24/7 the weather conditions of the airport.

Another thing to check is weather you have the correct antenna attached to your scanner and that it is connected properly, the circuits in your scanner may need that antenna to be connected for the circuit to function properly.

If you are using the scanner to listen to your local Fire Dispatch there can be days when there isn't anything happening.

Another problem could be that your local Dispatch has moved over to a new Digital System and your scanner isn't equipped to recieve that System.

Lost manual and cannot program scanner bc145xl

Try these instructions from Wiki.answers

Turn on unit.
Press MANUAL button.
Press MANUAL button again to select the channel you want to program. Note the channel in the display. If there is a hyphenated symbol in the upper left corner the channel has been locked out. Press the LOCKOUT button once to remove the symbol or press the LOCKOUT button to lock a channel out. To find out if there is a frequency programed into that channel, press the PREVIEW button. Each digit of the frequency that is stored in memory will be displayed in the LED display. To program a new frequency into that channel, simply press the digits of the frequency you want, including the decimal point. Press the "E" keypad key to enter it into memory. If you get a "E" displayed in the LED display, the frequency was entered wrong, is not a valid frequency or is out of range for the scanner. Last but least, the scanner is not working properly. If the channel is active, (communications going over it) set SQUELCH to higher number, until you hear the communications or just noise. To set the SQUELCH, select a channel that has only noise and turn it down to the point the noise disappears. You make have to readjust it to your liking. Once you have the channels programed you can select the SCAN button to listen to all the channels or select the MANUAL button to listen to just one channel. If there are channels that you don't want to hear during the scan mode, go to MANUAL and select the channel you don't want to hear and press LOCKOUT button. Then press SCAN again it will only scan channels you want to hear.

Hope this helps.
