• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I just suffered the indignation of dropping the beloved unit on a hard surface, breaking the volume control knob clean off disabling completely on & off. Has anyone else done similar ? and had a fix from Uniden.
Can you fix yourself and order part only ?
Or best to ship to Texas and deal with Uniden to repair ?
Any feedback would be welcome.
Regards
Tom

if you have a solder extraction machine, you should do fine.
if you dont, uniden is the way to go. flat rate should be around $55.00 and they warrantee the product.

I had the same thing happen to me and it only took a week to get it back from the time I sent it.
