After I have replaced with new rechargeable batteries this weekend I have lost my RX!!? I did a small test with a couple of PMR radio, and only then I'm close (1 meter) to my scanner it will pick up weak RX from the PMR. Tested on close call and preselected frequency with same result.
I believe the scanner have to be return for warranty repair as this must be a hardware error.

PS! The squeles is on level 2, as its always been.

Have you checked with another antenna? Does the reception change with and without antenna?
Before you send it away, can you download the latest firmware and put that in the firmware folder in the SD card so it will reprogram it.

Yes have tried with external and "internal" antenna. Best with the orginal antenna, but even then very week or non RX.
I'm using firmware 1.26.00. Will do an update later today.

Now reinstalled firmware, no changes, still very poor RX on all antennas.
