I bought a great scanner off a seller on ebay who only said that the physical condition looked good but knew nothing else about it. Sold "As Is".
When I got it I saw the only problem was that the geared plastic piece that the scan head runs along had come loose from wherever it had been hooked with a spring. Now I'm in search of a manual or picture that shows me how the thing gets hooked back up.

This really isn't an appraisal service. You can search online (eBay, Etsy, etc.) sites that have recently sold similar machines. Price also depends on its physical and working condition, the accessories that are included, where it is located, etc. In essence, an item's value is only worth what a seller is willing to pay.
Code 1684 is for the computer loosing battery voltage or voltage dropping below 11 volts. So that code won't help much with a no start condition. I would check for spark and fuel pressure then proceed.
I'd try contacting the seller FIRST and letting him know the product does not work for the models he advertised and you'd like to return the item for a refund. If that doesn't work, THEN file a claim with your credit card company or Paypal (credit card is preferable if you paid by that rather than paypal funds) and say the item was misrepresented.
Rather than splicing anything and damaging anything, I'd do that first. Then find a seller with high ratings for the same product. Ebay is the way to go rather than paying ridiculous factory prices.See if you can find the original manufacturer's part # (possibly off your broken power adapter), rather than just the scanner model #, and search Ebay for it, but click the "Search within description" box, as many bay sellers only include the actual part # in the auction description, rather than just the title.
Sorry, but maintaining memory in your BC248CLT is not as simple as replacing a battery. Your scanner has a capacitor-based backup system, and the capacitor has apparently failed with age. Unless you're skilled at electronics repair, or you have a buddy who is, repair of this classic (circa 1999) scanner will set you back about $100. That makes repair impractical, so you might want to keep your current scanner powered up, and start looking for a replacement. Good deals on used scanners can always be found on eBay, but be certain that you know what you're buying, what condition it's in, and what it's worth.
I would contact the seller for that information. Also check the ebay listing to see if the seller offers a DOA( Dead on Arrival) return. It would probably cost you more to repair it than to just buy a new one. The seller should be responsible for providing that information to you or to accept the return on the item.
