I can 't think of any places locally, but you can certainly send it to Uniden for repair.

With a problem as simple as "no power", I'd certainly look at it for you. BUT I would want a service manual first. I have service manuals for a lot of GREs but no Unidens.

Did you happen to plug power in backwards or something else that caused it to fail? Or did it just fail "on its own"? Or?

Before you trash it, look for common things, like a blown fuse (super common), broken solder joints, etc. I live in Placerville; I can take a quick look at it for you.
