If an out of band frequency is put in that channel you will get the Fr Err message as well, just put in a frequency within the scanners specs

You can reset the memory by hitting Search and Scan simultaneously (or unplugging it)

This is a very old unit & it's getting tired. This problem is generally caused by a component failure in the frequency synthesizer circuit & will not be cost-effective to repair. Time to invest in a new scanner. Sorry.

Scanner problems Its stays on Auto-Scann and buttons dont work


Resetting or initializing the scanner may clear your problem.

To RESET the scanner:

- Turn the power OFF, then turn it ON again.
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip end, ballpoint pen tip, etc.) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then press and release the button inside the opening.

If the above doesn't clear the problem, try the more drastic INITIALIZE procedure. NOTE: this step will erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner and restore it to original factory settings. To INITIALIZE the unit:

- Turn the scanner OFF then ON again. The scanner briefly displays the DSP boot version, then "Welcome to Digital Trunking" displays.
- Press "0". The scanner displays "System Tests Select Test Exits if no Key Press"
- Press "1". The scanner displays "Factory Unit Erase Memory ENTER if Yes CL to Exit"
- Press ENTER. The scanner displays "Initializing Clr Main Mem V-Scan is OK Please Wait"
- Do not power the scanner OFF until INITIALIZE is complete. When the process is complete the scanner will display "M0000" on the top line and "Bank 0 Ch 0" on the bottom line.

If neither of the above steps works for scanner I recommend that you take it to your nearest Radio shack and arrange certified repairs.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

How do I program a Regency Z30 scanner?


To program the Regency Z30

1. Press "MANUAL"
2. Enter the frequency you want, example 162.475
3. Press "ENTER"
The display will show "Ch_" with the _ (underscore) flashing
4. Enter the number of the channel where you want to store the frequency.
Note: channels 1 thru 9 must have a zero before them, example 01, 02,........ 09
If you want to add more frequencies at this time, got to step 2.

To lock out a channel, press "SCAN" and while the unit is scanning,
enter the channel number. Repeat this action to unlock a channel.

To increase or decrease the scanning rate, press the "SPEED / ENTER" key while the unit is scanning.

To create a delay after a transmission to wait for the next response, press the "DELAY" key while the unit is scanning.

You can change the display by pressing the "CHANNEL / DISPLAY" key. There are 3 choices: display only the channel number, only the frequency,or alternate displaying the channel number and the frequency.

Regency 1099 Scanner


Fr Err usually means that the freq entered into a certain channel is too high or too low for the band of the scanner. Also could mean that the freq's have been lost out of the memory. Maybe a dead memory battery, or been unhooked from the wall too long and lost it's charge. Been a loong time since I've seen one of those models,,, Let me know if it helps,,, Mechanic

How to program an old regency 1060 scanner


I'm not too sure about this particular model, but other Regency variations require you to push the "Manual" button, enter the channel number you want to set (usually 01-09 for single digits) and then enter the frequency you want. On some you may need to enter the frequency first and then the channel number.

FINDING FREQUENCIES


87ff97c.jpgNo it can't sorry. If you want to scan things all the way up to the 900 MHz frequency you should get a Regency Touch K500. Its not a portable scanner however. It may be a little hard to find because Regency went out of business a while back, but look on e-Bay you'll find it there.
