Repairs

I have an SDS-100 that is not working properly. I sent it in to Uniden over two months ago. Each time I call to check on the status I receive the same response: i.e. “We will get to it as soon as we can”. Frankly, two months seems excessive. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hang in there.  Yeah, it sucks to be without, but we (an AV Co.) are having the same issues with pro cameras, projectors, microphones, etc., getting repaired, due to COVID.  Big names too like Sony, Panasonic and Shure.  All backed up.  Some repairs are even been completed in technicians homes!  I have sent in a couple of 780's and 785's to Uniden a few years ago.  Think I never waited more than a month to get it back.  New reality.

Well, you could have them send it back, get the parts, and fix it yourself. Of course if they are having trouble getting the parts, I'm not sure how soon it might be until you get them.

COVID has everything backing up. People don't want to work because they are currently making as much or more sitting at home. I know several who are making almost double what they normally would, and they don't have to spend money on fuel, or wear-and-tear on the car, and all that time wasted actually working. It's like a country-wide vacation.

I was talking to a guy who has a used car lot. He can't even get cars to sell. Nobody is trading them in and the auction houses are not running much.

Don't worry. Things will return to normal when the government cheese runs out. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later.

It’s not as though it’s a contest, but I’ll match your 75 days and raise you a few—months.

Warranty repair of a Yaesu MD-100 microphone: Eight months and counting.

I get it, things are complicated by Covid, but they might at least respond to my emails requesting status.

I agree. If they communicated it would be good customer PR. They never even acknowledged receipt.  Since it’s been there my warranty has expired, but I don’t anticipate that to be an issue.

There is hope, people! I got my HomePatrol back today. It was shipped to Uniden April 1st. Can't say I'm complaining. I was expecting much longer. Best of luck to the rest of you.

I agree. To be fair Icom told me about chip shortage half staff and so on and running way behind. I also work for a new car dealer with multi lines and yes this is a real problem. Don't even get me started about the video card shortage.

I read that Ford has closed two assembly lines and laid off over a 1,000 workers. That's for the F150, which is probably their most popular model. The problem is that they can't get enough chips for the various computers that are used in modern vehicles.

It's going to be months, maybe even the end of the year, before the supply chain straightens out.

It's effecting EVERYTHING imported into this country.

Impact so far: $110 billion


Guessing Uniden might be caught up in it as well for manufacturing and service.

About 10 months or longer ago, didn’t I hear about some chip manufacturer building a new facility in the southwest or something?  I’ll bet that deal flew the coop with Keystone.

The TSMC plant in Phoenix is scheduled to begin bulk chip production in 2024.
