Question about Uniden BC246T Handheld Scanner

2 Answers

'stuttering' reception On my bc246 the received signal 'skips' or 'stutters' every 2 seconds, making it difficult to follow. It happens when scanning, searching, holding, or on manual, everything. I've tried altering or switching off every 'pause' 'hold' 'timer' function I can find, wiping all system settings and starting afresh... Am I missing something or is the unit just faulty?

Usually the close call, weather priority, or channel priority settings are on...or just one of them.

A minute or 2 after starting the machine and on any setting the machine starts to stutter, lights flashing and making a fast rhythmic noise

It sounds as though power is only struggling through to the motor intermittently.

Ignoring the possibilities of loose or bad connections or expensive circuit boards the motor could need new brushes.
I have had my machine nearly ten years and it is on its fourth set even though it doesn't get used very often.

I suggest you stop persisting with attempting to make it go. If brushes are the problem you could be making things worse so that it could need a new motor rather than some routine periodical maintenance.

I could be completely wrong - sorry if I am.

AM reception is fine for about 9 seconds and then the signal and audio drop completely. The only way to get signal back is to toggle to fm and back to am, then another 9 seconds of clear audio happens,...

Hello, I am sorry about your issue. Is the FM reception OK. AM signals are difficult to receive at times. Try extending the AM antenna and place it near a window. Thank you, Onkyo USA

Really tough to get perfect reception with Rabbit ears. If you can somehow feed the line outside a lot of the times I have found that it helps improve signal reception

My mouse keeps stuttering, I really don't know why. I changed the batteries and installed the latest drivers available. It works on and off. The stuttering really makes it unusable. I'm not sure what I...

When the mouse stutters, check the adapter plugged into the computer. If the little light on the adapter (labeled #2 in the picture) is blinking then you may have accidentally pressed the sync button on the bottom of the adapter or the mouse.

To fix this problem, press the sync button on the bottom of the adapter.
Next, press the sync button on the bottom of the mouse.

Samsung s730 Digital Camera - Video Stuttering Problem

I have the same problem with 640x320 video @ 30fps. The first one was very clean, but after that the video freezes every two seconds, but the audio don't. I "fixed" this issue changing the video format from NTSC to PAL. Now the videos are smooth again, and if you want NTSC playback, just use a video converter on your PC.

My rio ce2100 keeps stuttering or skipping

I would recommend wiping your player - (if this doesn't work then it is probably the tracks/audio you are playing and not the player):

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio carbon and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from:
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps
