Question about Uniden BCD396XT Handheld Scanner
Brand new radio, worked great first few days then suddenly stoped producing sound, still lights up and appears to be scanning but no sound coming from radio
BCD386XT No sound. If it is actually stopping on an active broadcast and if you have the volume turned up (press down on volume button and release, then rotate to adjust) then the most likely cause is a failed speaker. Try a set of headphones in the jack on top by the antenna, if you have sound there it is most certainly a bad speaker. It is a very tiny speaker that is as thin as a nickel, many have been broken by a simple jar or by being played too loud by the hearing impaired. It is not hard to change but basic soldering skills are required. the speaker is available from uniden parts.

The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast

Doesn't sound like you're doing anything wrong. Either the scanner is defective or your locale is using some kind of oddball system that's causing the noise. Take it back, show them what it's doing. If possible, try another scanner in the store and see if it does the same thing. You should be entitled to a refund, exchange, or full credit towards a different model . . .

In your manual, if you have one, if not look it up on the internet. There are ways with all these types of communications, to reset to manufacturer and factory settings at time of new purchase. Then proceed forward in programming.

Your best bet is to send it to Uniden for factory certified repair. They may charge a little more than your local electronics shop, but they will use the correct parts and give you a quality repair with a factory warranty. You can contact them here:
