Question about Radio Shack Pro-94 Scanner
The reason the word "WIRED" is displayed on your screen is because there is something wrong with the PC/IF jack on the side. Use a little flashlight and try to see if something is jammed in that hole. If not then you can either send it in for service or you can service it yourself (you'll void the warranty if you dismantle your scanner). The jack is probably faulty and once it's removed your scanner should work fine. The pc/if jack is supposed to be used for connecting your pc to your scanner to transfer frequencies. This would save you lots of time if it were that simple. I've doinked around with it quite a bit and never really figured it out. I suppose you could call Radio Shack and ask for help but since they didn't include instructions in the manual for the pc/if feature, I'm betting that they don't know either. Bottom line- you can spend 6 hours trying to get the data transfer to work, or 2 hours typing in the frequencies. You don't need the pc/if port, so remove it, and badabing, you have a scanner that works. ps. you'll need basic soldering skills to do this. If you've never used a soldering iron then you better practice removing components from something thats already broken.

"Wired" suddenly appeared on my scanner. I followed the first suggestion and removed the D206 diode. My scanner works just as good as new now!!!!! Thanks!

Actually if this doesn't work the problem is a bad diode. next to the jack is a diode marked D206. this needs to be removed and you will be able to use scanner, just not use a computer to program it.
