    Default BC 15 X No receive

    My 15 X stopped receiving the other day. It was in the overhead of my truck and took a pounding going down route 290. All functions normal but no receive bars and it won't pick up anything. Now I'm pretty good with these things but I cannot figure this one out. I think some of the buttons on the front got pushed while it was banging around in the truck. The funny thing is that when you power it up the top line reads -1. Now I have never seen that before. If anybody has any ideas please let me know.

    Have you tried
    Reprogramming
    if no luck,
    a full reset

    could be something like a ribbon cable loosened but they have been pretty lately good about using some glue and tack them in place.

    The BC X and XT scanners have a history of doing this. Where the receive goes dead. I've sent four or five back for repair for this exact issue. Every single one came back working like new out of the box, and the repair was the same IC in all five of them.
