    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:

Hello Paul and everyone. Out of the blue, my RH-96 remote head has begun flashing a "Processing, Please Wait" message every few seconds while connected to my 396xt, alternating with normal display information. I've tried the memory/factory default reset with no effect, checked all connections, etc. Could my control cable suddenly become faulty? The 396xt works perfectly while connected to my desktop PC via the USB control cable -- normal virtual-scanner display via ProScan.

Do I need to send the RH-96 in for repair, order a replacement cable (my likely first move), or is there another remedy I might try?


Many thanks in advance...A.

I'd say it's a cable issue. I had a similar problem with my RH96 a couple of years ago and a replacement cable fixed it. It's the first thing I'd do.

Thanks for your quick note. I've gone ahead and ordered a replacement remote cable from Uniden. Cheap enough at $7.25 with free shipping. Hopefully that'll take care of things.


Best...A.
