• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

You need to post more information.
Not working is what?
Does not power up?
Powers up scans but does not stop on any channel or does not pass audio?
Have you tried a new SD Card?
What does the scanner do?

What makes you think that “overheating” caused your scanner to stop working? What error messages did you see on the screen?

What symptoms happened just before it stopped working? What happens when you try to power it up now.... does anything show on the screen?

SDS100 radios all get warm. Probably has nothing to do with whatever your problem is.

Hard to tell what your problem is from your post.

My SDS100 (which I bought a month ago) doesn't feel any warmer than my 436. I bought the external charger along with the scanner and only run off of battery power. Is it because I don't charge my battery in the scanner and never run the scanner off USB power that I don't feel anything?
