    how do i re program if locked out?

  • redchick Jan 07, 2009

    Are the channels that come up as 000.0000 automatically locked out because there is no transmission (I tried to do an unlock on these, and did a restore all locked out channels)? Or did I accidentally push a button I wasn't supposed to?

Go to the channel you want to lock out with the manual (man) button, then press the LO button. and the LO on the indicator should disappear showing it is no longer locked out.

How do you unlock channels on scanner


Hi Lori,
Many times, you need to switch to MANUAL mode (out of scan) and step thru each channel. The display will indicate if the particular channel is locked out by symbol or text. Pressing ENTER or LOCKOUT (depending on model scanner) should toggle a locked out channel back into the scan - and a scanned channel into lockout.
Without knowing your scanner model - it's difficult to tell you exactly how to do it. If my suggestions do not work, reply and include the brand and model number so I can get you the exact steps to solve your problem.
Good luck!

How do I unlock my scanner?


Channel Lockout You can lock out a channel so it is not scanned. Channel Lockout does not erase the frequency from the channel. You can lock out up to 50 channels, including the Priority channel.
Lockout information is retained in the memory when the scanner is turned off.To Lock out a Channel
Example: Suppose you want to lock out Channel 2 because it stops on transmissions you don't want to hear.Press LOCKOUT when the scanner stops on Channel 2.The scanner locks out Channel 2, Then it immediately advances to the next channel that is not locked out, and resumes scanning.In the Manual mode, press LOCKOUT to lock out the displayed channel. Pressing LOCKOUT does not advance to the next channel in Manual mode.L/O appears in the display to indicate the displayed channel is locked out.Whenever you want to search for channels that are locked out, press MANUAL repeatedly to go through all 50 channels. If a channel is locked out, L/O
appears in the display.Restore a Locked Out Channel To unlock a channel so that it can be monitored during scanning:1. Press MANUAL repeatedly to find the locked out channel.2. Press LOCKOUT again to unlock the displayed channel. L/O no longer appears in the display.Restore All Locked Out Channel To unlock all channels, you must be in the Manual Mode.1. Press MANUAL.
2. Press and hold LOCKOUT to unlock all channels. The L/O indicator goes out on any channel previously locked out.

Bearcat scanner lockout on and i want it off


You didn't provide a model number, so this response is a little generic and applies mainly to late model Bearcats. To release an individual programmed channel from lockout, stop the scanner on that channel (select and press MANUAL) then press the Lockout (L/O) key. Any unprogrammed channel, displaying 000.0000, will show as locked out. Programming a frequency into it automatically releases the lockout. If all channels are showing as locked out you may need to reset the scanner. The reset procedure varies my model, so I'll need the model number to describe the steps.

Hi i have a regency D300 thrity channel scanner and i need to no how th lock out the weather band channel


put it in manual mode and scroll to the desired frequency that you want to lockout. You should be able to just press the lockout button while in manual mode and it will lockout this channel. Then just simply press resume or scan and it should be resolved.

How do you program a bearcat bc55xlrt scanner with a code?


There are no codes, only frequencies. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

To program your BC55XLT:

Turn on radio.

It will be in scan mode. Press Manual (orange button) to stop scanning.
Press Manual button to step through channels to get to the one you want.
(Or press channel number and then manual button)

If "LockOut" is displayed it means this channel isn't being "Scanned."
You will want to lock out constant "broadcast" services such as NOAA or airport weather. Pressing Lockout will toggle the feature on and off.

Select a channel to program. Use the keypad to enter frequency. Use "E" for Enter
key. If the radio displays an E this means Error. Usually, the
frequency you typed in is outside of the capabilities of the scanner.

Once you hit the E you will immediately start hearing anything that's
out there on the frequency you entered.

Push the "Review" button and the scanner will display the frequency
that is programmed for the channel. A "-" will be displayed for the
decimal point.

How do I unlock channels (pro-2055)


the unlock command is done from the manual mode.

If you scanner is in the scan mode, push the "MANUAL"button to stop the scanning feature.

Next you need to go to the channel you want to unlock. If you are only a few channels away, while in the manual mode, push the up or down arrows to step (one push per channel to be stepped though) to the channel to be unlocked.

A direct method is to enter the channel number on the keypad and then push the "manual" button. The display should show the channel you desire.

If the channel lockout is on, the second line on the display will show "LO+". Push the keypad button marked "L/OUT" once. The "LO+" should change on the display from uppercase to a lowercase "lo+". The channel is now unlocked.
