Loses channels in car / is fine at home

It just started doing this yesterday. It was working fine in my car (as it has done for about a year now) and then all the frequencies went blank. I brought it inside plugged it in and voila! all of my programmed frequencies were back.
I then brought it back out to my car and again - nothing, everything blank again.

Make sure the adapter you use for you car is set for the proper voltage. That was my problem. I must have moved the voltage selector switch off of the proper setting. I set it back at 9 volts and I was back in business.

I get all channels locked out. How do I unlock the channels.


You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again and enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scanns quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

All channels locked on my radio shack pro-95 scanner

Make sure you are entering your frequencies in empty channels unless you want to over write one that you don't want to use any longer. Press "PGM" until you get to an empty channel.

V-scan channels missing


Sounds like all that is happening is that the channels are locked out, you need to go through manually and unlock them. I have the same scanner and that is what I needed to do.

Unlocking channels


first press the manual button so you can go through the channels one by one. Then look for a button that has L/O(lock out) push this once for every channel you have a frequency programmed for it, the channel will probably not unlock if there is no frequecy programmed to it.

Scanning programmed channels


Not exactly. You can program channels however into the Private bank. To do so though you must search for the channel first...This may simply mean going to a channel you already know by using the band button to start searching...Push the hold button to stop it close to the frequency and then use the arrow keys to get to the exact frequency. then push the Prog button. After pushing it, push the Private button (you will see CH next to the frequency) using the arrow keys select the channel you want to store on and push Prog again. To scan the stored channels simply push the private button...Done! It can be a tedious process...expecially with 50 channels....but It's the only way I know how to do it...Good luck!

Looses frequencies when programmed


if it loses the frequencies immediatly then it sounds like the capacitor that holds the charge for the memory has gone out. If it is sitting for a few days and loses frequencies this is more common. Solution, if you've had it less than a year, take it to your local radioshack, try to find the receipt and have them send it to the repair center for you.

Channels locked out


Mrs. Santa brought me a new PRO-97 yesterday. I'm new to this - just wanted an aircraft frequency scanner, but got the whole shameal. I had a bad AC adapter and attempted to fix the power problem as directed in the manual by re-initializing the scanner. That blew all memory away.

I received the feared All Channels Locked Out message and through a little research and fiddling, realized the scanner was pre-programmed. An Addendum came with the scanner with instructions to reload the 155 pre-programmed frequencies:
1) Turn off the scanner and then turn it on again.
2) When 'Multi-system Trunking Scanner' appears, press PGM.
3) Press 1.

This will reload the pre-programmed frequencies erased by the re-init. Press scan and it'll be as new as outta the box!

Best wishes,
Farnk
