Resolved Question:

When I press scan on my new BC125AT I get the message "All Channels Locked out". I have tried the Unlock all channels function from the manual, but it makes no difference.

Hold "func+L/O" a message should come up asking if I wanted to unlock all freqs, then press "E" for yes...

`

 

Input several freqs in an unused bank and press L/O a couple times and then press "Unlock+E" (as per above) should unlock all the frequencies / channels.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX help. It worked. However, I needed to set the hold button before I did the steps you suggested. But now it is stuck on one frequency and won't scan any further. Any suggestions?

Press HOLD again and can press .CLR to return to the previous screen. May then push Srch to rescan.

If is not responding may reset to factory by following steps on page 37 of the manual - http://info.uniden.com/twiki/pub/UnidenMan4/BC125AT/BC125AT.pdf
