• 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:

You need to try to install the update again. Using BC_Vup, be sure you follow the instructions to the letter. Sounds like you didn't unplug the power supply and hold the HOLD / RESUME button down while you plug the power back in . Hold the button down until the display stops flashing.

Turn scanner off. Press and hold in 2 , 9 , HOLD keys then turn the scanner back on. Wait until ALL MEMORY is CLEARED. Then select "Yes" or "No" if you want to re-install the Factory Pre-Program List.

Apparently you interrupted the progress of the upgrade before it was finished. Hook the program cable up again and open the BC_VUP program and locate the Update file again and try to re-start the update again. Be sure to follow the instructions closely.

Your only real hope is to follow the instructions exactly to get the firmware to update or send it to Uniden for them to fix the problem.

I doubt that you have shorted anything out Are you using the latest BC_VUP that is currently on Unidens Website? I have done updates successfully on several scanners and I know it can be confusing when something doesn't go right. I would contact the place where you bought it or Uniden as a last resort. If you would like to contact me, PM me your e-mail address and I will send you my phone #.
