You say FreeScan failed? Doubtful. What message(s) are you seeing? Do you have a USB-serial cable? Did you load up the drivers? What are you trying to load?

Too many questions, not enough info....Mike

bcd396xt speaker.

I bought this scanner like condition off from ebay.
Everything was working great til I connected the cable to the desktop.
I was using freescan to load Frequencies into the scanner.
I was getting errors but that was caused by the Open
band editor.Freescan worked fine the data cable to the scanner came with the scanner.
I am able to and have the scanner loaded with data.My problem is for some reason the external speaker on the scanner has quit.
I am not able to get another scanner since he is not running a business.
As of right now I am using an external speaker for sound but I can't really carry it around like this.
I am trying to find a place to repair this scanner but I am not able to find a place!
I have tried Uniden but get the run around.Seems like Uniden is selling junk if that many people need repairs to the point you have to cut the phones off!@@?
I don't want the money back I just need repairs done!

All I want is for my scanner to work like it should?
Everything is working great.The biggest problem I have is the speaker?
If I use freescan and shut off the send custom radio setting.
When I use the setting it generates an error.

This scanner is like new no wear no cracks nothing.
The scanner looks brand new.I received the scanner usps.Everything to my knowledge is working
just the main speaker is not.I don't know if the cable did it or had something to do with it.
I get full sound with earplugs.

Why not just contact Uniden Repair?

Try fiddling with the earphone jack..they have tendency of sticking in the closed position cutting off the external speaker.. just turn your scanner on..set to an active freq like the national weather freqs..take a 1/8" audio plug and keep putting it IN & OUT a few times till you hear the channel. This sticking problem DOES happen with the 396's..
It's worth a shot to try....

I have tried to call and call uniden you try it you will see thank you for calling and they hang up on you
The link I gave you was to Uniden's web-based repair center that instructs you how to get your scanner repaired. It's not a telephone....
