Re: Volume not working
If you mean that you can't turn the volume down, the problem is either a broken volume control or a broken connection to the "ground" side of the control. Either way, you should refer repair to someone knowledgeable about fixing scanners.

Thank you for asking me to help with your problem unfortunately I do not assist with scanners. When I worked as a Police Dispatcher I had two officers killed because someone with a scanner told the suspects the officers were coming and they were ambushed. Scanners on Police and Fire frequencies should be outlawed.
That sounds like a bad solder joint where the knob is attached to the board on the inside. Depending on how long you have had your Scanner, you may be able to return it to Radio Shack for another one or they may want to send it in for repair.
If you have had Experience in working on Electronic devices you could probably open it up and re-solder the joint yourself, but ONLY if the Scanner is OUT of warranty would you want to take that route.
I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up. Sincerely Greg Stevens e-mail email@example.com
