batteries on the 396xt are dead. When I plug into power supply it reads "charge off" I was thinking there was a setting on this scanner where you could charge the batteries when plugged into a power supply. If anyone knows anything, any feedback would be appreciated.....

ok then

slide the back off,
take the batteries out,
flip the little switch to NiMH.
that is the charge setting.
many folks here will tell you the advantage of an external charger, i got a smart one and not one that just charges. sure they cost a bit but, are worth it

Yep, MaHa type charger is the best.

You can have spare batteries charging while using the scanner and you would be surprised how the batteries do need condition and sometimes just do not have the mAH they should.
