You can address the issues by the following steps:

1. Detach the terminals of your scanner and reinsert. If it is a USB scanner, try to use a different USB port. Also, check if the USB terminal was disabled by somebody. This can be disabled in the configuration settings.
2. Uninstall and reinstall the software of your scanner if the first step doesn't work.

My scanner wont come on I turn the switch on and nothing lights up I was wondering if it's dead.


Without model and make it's hard to say. First check the power and or batteries if it's a hand held model. I run into this issue with my Whistler scanner from time to time...I just remove the batteries and put them back in and it comes back.

Uniden 796d was trying to program trunk line pushed mutltablr buttons now wont turn on


First try doing a reset first. If uou hold down 2,4,an 9 while turning it on it should reset. If not use 2 an 4. This works many times. Also have you tried connecting to the computer with it? I would try the factory rest first.

My scanner is scanning but nothing is happening,not getting anything at all. Itgoes through all the numbers but is not picking anything up,and it was working fine yesterday.Please tell me what my problem...


Perhaps it's a slow day? Start by turning the squelch all the way down until you hear static. Then, turn it up just enough to cancel out the static. It's possible that it got bumped or change somehow, and now it is blocking out the signals you want to receive.

Hello ishaull.
Welcome to FixYa.
My name is John, and I will be assisting you with your issue.
You need to turn your SQUELCH back just a little, but not to much.
Just turn it enough so that the noise disappears!
Hope this was helpful. Your Comments and Testimony's are always welcome here.
Thanks for choosing FixYa today and in the future.

If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:

- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON.
- Press the SVC button (chrome button below display).
- Press POL (chrome button below display).
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise.
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.

If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.

To Program:

- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner."
- Power the unit ON
- Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes.
- Press HOLD.
- Press E (PGM).
- Press 0, 1.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02.
- Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press the E (PGM) key.

You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .

If it still will not accept programming, let me know.

Scanner wont scan


if it won't allow you to use the buttons then go to page 17 of the manual (at "http://support.radioshack.com/manuals/ome20-525.pdf" if you don't have it) about half-way down the page. good luck!
