Uniden BC350 assist

Ok, i have a Uniden BC350. Was bought with the understanding there were no issues with it.

But, we got issues. Ok, powers up, all funtion buttons work yada yada. The issue is with the scanning itself. It displays the scrolling "scan" but will not pick up the frequencies. Yes they are all programmed correctly. If you manually scroll through the frequencys programmed you can hear things just fine, but when you want to scan automatically it will not pick up anything. Its not the Antenna, as i have tried several different ones. Using them all on different scanners with no issues.

I sent a email to uniden, no reply. So any ideas, thoughts, suggestions please let me know.

Thanx BJ

Just to make sure, the channels aren't locked out, right? Perhaps a given bank might be locked out altogether...might have some better luck on Radioreference.com too as their population tends to be more "radio" oriented...

going to sound kinda dumb but you have adjusted the SQUELCH right?

also manualy got through and check the banks.

i own 3 bc350 series scanners and never had this issue.

also did you try a different coax or are the antennaes you are using have different coaxs on them.
