power butoon works and the others seem not to function


Is the display showing an icon that looks like a key? If so, you have unintentionally locked the keyboard. To UNLOCK it, power the scanner ON and then press the FUNC and key (picture) keys. If that doesn't work you will need to RESET the scanner. To do this, power the scanner OFF, then press and hold the 2, 9, and HOLD keys while you power the scanner ON. The RESET will erase all your programming, but it will get the unit working again.

I have pro 135 from radio shack. How do I reset it and keep the channels that are programed in it?


The RESET function will clear everything that you have programmed into the scanner and restore original factory settings. You can, however, restore the 150 pre-programmed frequencies after a RESET.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF.
- Hold down the 2, 9, and PSE keys and power the scanner ON.
- CLEAr appears on the display as the scanner resets.
- Do not power the scanner OFF until CLEAr disappears from the display.

To restore the original 150 pre-programmed frequencies:
- Turn the scanner power OFF.
- Hold down the 3 and ENT/PGM keys and power the scanner ON.

PTC-710 telxon Cannot get unit to send new order. Old order stuck in memory. How do you clear all past orders?? Thanks


with the unit off, hold down the two keys on the bottom corner (enter, sp key) and press then release the on key while continuing to hold down the "enter" and "sp" keys until you get a promt on the display.
When a prompt comes up release all the keys. Hold down the 5 key for 3 beeps. The unit will test memory for about 1 min, then beep. Press any key to turn the device off. Then press the on key to power the unit back up.

if you need additional information please let me know.
