Question about Radio Shack Pro-2096 Base Scanner
My screen sometimes fades out then comes back in whenever it feels like it
My 2096 was doing the same thing with a blank screen. IF, your scanner is scanning normally and the dim button still dims your display, your problem could be the same as mine was. This worked for me and got my display working like new again. First thing to do is to take the covers both top and bottom off to expose your scanners insides.Next, once you can see the inside of your scanner you will see a ribbon cable connected to the main board and also soldered to the display. Take the ribbon out of its coupling connector and gently clean the contacts on the ribbon with a cuetip with alcohol on it, also clean the solder joints on the display face that connect the ribbon to the display with the cuetip and alcohol. Ii then reassembled everything, ribbon back into its connector and made sure the clamping mechanisim on the ribbon was securely holding the ribbon. I pluged the power supply into it and turned it on before reassemblig the case covers to see if it would work. Bingo, it worked like new again. Hope it works for you ! Jim
