Question about Radio Shack Pro-96 Scanner
I can program in frequencies but it won't pick-up transmissions not even the weather channels.

I have had the same problem occasionally, and I figured it out pretty much by accident. If you inadvertantly hit the ATT button while scanning, it will turn on the attenuator?. This will usually drastically reduce if not stop completely the receiving of signals normally.
Manually go through each frequency looking for the "A" to display on the top line of the display. If it shows up on a channel, hit the ATT key and turn it off.
If one of your data channels had the attenuator turned on, You problably will not receive anything at all. Give it a try.

i HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND HAD TO GO TO ONE CHANNEL AT ATIME IN MANUAL AND HIT THE PROGRAM BUTTON TO RESET IT TO MEMEORY. YOU CAN TELL IF IT IS THE PROBLEM IF YOUR SCREEN READS "ALL CHANNELS LOCKED-OUT"

Performing a RESET will not clear/erase frequencies or other data programmed into the scanner. If the RESET doesn't work though, you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. That procedure will clear all programmed data and return the scanner to its "as new" state. Need the manual for your PRO-82? You canb download/print it here:

SOURCE: i have programmed my pro164
you will have to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.
The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.
This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ . but if you have tried doing this.i advise do it again.again run the program by connecting the cable again.if you have not tried it then do it again. if still the same problem.then it might be the problem with the scanner.get it rechecked from radio shack. there are many many users facing this same problem this particular model of radioshack scanner and other model in which this same problem occurs is pro-197. get it checked with radio shack.tech. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
