    I have the same problem. Monitor works fine, except there is no display. If I press down against the bottom of the display you can read the display. Let go and everything goes blank.

Tilt the scanner in a different direction while looking at the display. Do you see anything on the display when you look at it from a different angle? Sometimes manufacturers don't put the LCD display in correctly, and because LCD's have a really small viewing angle it can result in not seeing what is displayed.

My Radio Shack Pro-82 Scanner is not working at all.i turned it on and it wont even scan. i cant even hear the squelch. and the only time it picks up something is when its on the air setting it picks up...


Ok I have had the same problem with the Pro 82 and the biggest problems I've found for it not to scan is Corrosion of the terminals not only outside but inside. Even on the keypad and pcb board. SOLUTION: Just take it all apart with a small philips pecision screwdriver and with a dry toothbrush scrape all the corrosion off the board. This always solves my problem and it should yours. Even if theres no corrosion visible on the terminals be assured there is still some inside keping this from functioning correctly. Shotgun420

My Radio Shack Pro-82 Scanner batt. went dead , now I have no sound


That means you have to put new batteries in your scanner... or recharge your rechargable batteries but if you use rechargable batteries use your yellow battery cradle for rechargeable batteries and your black cradle for alakline batteries....foe pro 82...

My pro-82 scanner scans threw all channels but will not pick up any frequencies?


To verify that the scanner is working properly, program one or more of the weather frequencies(162.4, 162.425, 162.45, 162,475, 162.5, 162.525, 162.55, 161.65, 161.775, 163.275) into memory and then scan. NOTE: Not all frequencies are in use in all areas, so you may need to try several. If you receive the weather broadcasts, then you may need to adjust the squelch setting on your scanner to receive local signals. You also need to verify that the frequencies programmed into the scanner are valid, active frequencies in your area. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If the scanner fails to receive the weather broadcasts, you need to check the antenna connections inside the unit and/or have the scanner checked/repaired by a qualified technician.

If it's still under the year warranty I would reckomend taking it to your local radioshack Retail store to send in for repair. Otherwise it sounds like the the speaker or the audio amplifier might be going out.
