A question about the headphone issue
I have one of the scanners with S/N <2600 (1439).
I am not sure if the noise on the front jack is significant to me.. I have trouble finding a conversation that lasts long enough to switch between headphones and speaker to compare. I find it useable though, so am inclined to not return it for this issue.
However, I have 2 questions that I wonder if they could be related, and I wanted to know if the correction will impact either of these..
1) I notice that to get a comfortable volume on the headphones, I need to raise the volume. If 10 was comfortable on speaker, I need to go to about 17 on the headphone jack.
2) If I plug in my ear-buds into the ext speaker jack, I do get a significant rushing/white noise. This is with the volume set to 0.
I also want to thank Upman and Uniden for their efforts to communicate fairly with us. (If you have not read the link at the bottom of Upman's posts, read it.. I think that is an excellent list for anyone who posts!) In particular, thank you for the gift of an extended warranty for the early purchasers of the 536!
