I found my Uniden 2-way radio and i put batteries in it and it worked properly. But about 10 hrs later... it doesnt even turn on... the first time when i put in the batteries it showed full bar, but now its blank screen. I did not change the batteries or nothing. please is there a way to reset it or something?

That scanner dates back to 1987, so chances are that the battery pack is well beyond charging. I found a new battery pack here: http://cgi.ebay.com/WALKIE-TALKIE-BATTERY-UNIDEN-RADIO-BC100XLT-BC200XLT-/310272646372?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item483db0dce4 but it will set you back more than $90. Another option is to open/dismantle the battery back and use a battery insert. You can purchase one for $12.95 here: http://www.batterybarn.com/jbbt049.htm The original battery is rated at 7.2VDC, but the charging circuit is set up for 12VDC at 500mA, so stay with your 12 volt charger.
1 ) remove battery and then 2 min later put back in. try again.
2) mine did that when it got wet. Remove battery, allow to dry in a warm well vented (over and under) area, Put battery back in 6 to 12 hrs later, try again. Worked for me!
We sell these often at work.(wep401) I have found these to have many MANY problems. Its always the exact same issue you are all talking about. It should not blink red and blue while on charging dock. It should only be red.(while charging) Then turns blue when its done charging(about 2 hrs). I highly suggest u return the product and stay away from this specific model. There is no fixing this.(internal battery issue) It either works or it doesnt.The samsung wep 301 is an excellent alternative choice.Looks alot alike and is WAY CHEAPER in price..works great!..Hope this helps
The range estimates are inflated by every manufacturer I am familiar with.
Even with line-of-sight transmission, I have found none that meet the claimed distance under common circumstances.
If you have a friend who is a radio amatuer, you might let him crack the case on one to see if there are any adjustments that could be improved; an 'old dog' would be able to locate the right area in which to look and perhaps tweak something to improve either transmitted power (he should have an instrument that would monitor it for adujstment if not for actual measurement) or improve receiver sensitivity.
The factory is only concerned with function and cost, not performance.
That the Motorola meets its stated range doesn't surprise me; they were long one of the most ethical companies around.
I'm not sure of their honesty today since profit (or even survival) has become more important.
