Question about Radio Shack Pro-96 Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning Sensitivity My Pro-96 seams less sensitive to the Primary channel I need to monitor. It is several years old and has been treated rough. Can the electronics "go out of alignment", similar to older scanners? What can I do to fix it, or have it fixed. I depend on it for response to EMS calls in the 154.725 range in both digital and analog. Thank You.

Hi, I love my Avent SCD510 monitor, but it started acting up today. In the past, when the parent monitor was on, I could hear every move my daughter made. I could also tell that it was on by the white...


Hi there, I had the same problem. My baby monitor used to work fine, and then all of a sudden it wasn't picking up my baby's cries. I used to be able to hear the static in the background, but I couldn't even hear that anymore.If I pressed the "sensitivity" button on the side of the parent unit, I could hear the static and my baby, but after a minute it would shut off. Very frustrating!
It turns out that somehow the sensitivity had been set to low. (Maybe this had something to do with the time I let my baby play with it...) I turned the sensitivity back up to high and it worked fine.
To set the sensitivity, press and hold the sensitivity button (located on the side of the unit) for about one second. There will be a number of blue lights that light up on the front -- the more lights that light up the higher the sensitivity is. (Mine was set at 2 out of 5, not very sensitive.) While the lights are on, press the + button (located on the face of the unit) to increase the sensitivity (or press the - button to decrease it, but that is probably not what you want to do if you are reading this post.) Press + until all 5 blue lights are on, and you'll be at max sensitivity. (You can adjust it later if this is too sensitive, once you find out of this fixes your problem.)
After a minute, your baby monitor will set itself to the sensitivity level that you set. So if the sensitivity level is really low, the monitor will seem to turn "off" after a minute. If it is high, you should still hear some static.
Hope this answer helps someone! I am really glad I don't have to take this unit back, I like it.

My garmin 520 radio does not transmit voice you can hear taps on the microphone and blowing into it but no voice even if u yell. it is less than one year old and has yet to be used.


You need to have this on a service monitor to see what if any frequency deviation is occuring when you transmit. You could have a defective mic or you could have a deviation setting set to low, whixh with th emodern radios is something you may or may not have to set within the program. "Back in the day" we set the deviation manually with a tweak of a pot while looking at a deviation meter and injecting 1K audio tone riding the carrier

Won't stop scanning


L16 Disc coil needs adjustment, Audio is slightly off, and improper noise to DC squelch level detect used to stop scan on active channel. Set to an on freq signal like a NOAA weather channel, and useing a non-metallic tool, adjust to best sounding audio, probably less than a half turn either direction. An on freq signal moduated by 1000hertz, connect scope to speaker and adjust for highest undistorted recovered audio would be better if you could.

Joystick sensitivity problem


You can reduce sensitivity by using the Logitech Profiler tool, which is on the cd that followed the product.
In the bottom left you will find a list of the axis', select the one you want to adjust, and a window will pop up, where you can change sensitivity, deadzone and range.

I can't pick up anything...


Hello even though everything is connected properly, have you checked for standing waves on the antenna to radio connection? Also you may have to perform a sensitivity test on the unit. The problem is you need a RF generator for that. Set you RF generator to the frequency that is equal to the CBs middle frequency and modulate the CW with 1KHz at 50% modulation, tune to the middle of the CB band on the radio and set the output of the RF generator to .1uv and loosely couple the signal to the CB antenna with a loop of wire. Your CB should be picking up a 1KHz tone gradually turn the power level down and when the tone cuts off that level is cutoff level, then increase the level until you can hear the tone again when the tone cuts on that value is the sensitivity of the unit. Compare the measured value to the value in the owners documentation. if the sensitivity is low this could denot a problem in the RF/IF section of the CB.
