My scanner is about a little over a week old now. Today, I just turned the scanner on, but noticed big problems. I am unable to hear radio frequencies. The speaker works because scrolling through settings creates a tone. The scanner picks up frequencies, but only displays a very small static noise. I even tried putting on FM radio to see if it would work, but the same thing occurred. I do not think I did anything to the scanner that could have caused this. No matter what I try, I cannot get a reliable feed. Even when I put the squelch all the way down, there is a low static noise. Usually, there is a loud and annoying static noise. I am speculating something could be wrong with the antenna, but I don't see why there would be.
