Radio Shack Pro 2018 Scanner backlight not working

How do you replace this lamp? I have a RS Ptrolman 9 that is 33 years old and the lights still work. This 2018 is 3 years old. The employees at RS don't know anything about scanners and radios like the good old days

SOURCE: i need to program a weather scanner for a pro 2018

Weather frequencies are factory programmed into the PRO-2018. Just press the weather button to start scanning them. You can also program one or more manually if you wish. For a list of NOAA weather broadcast frequencies, follow this link:

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

The backlight to the display no longer works. The "bulb" seems to be burned out. Is this going to be a cost-effective repair...?


The backlight in your scanner is an 8volt bulb, but your scanner is 10 years old, and the exact replacement is no longer carried by radio Shack. You can, however, replace it with a 6volt 25ma bulb, Radio Shack catalog number 272-1140. Replacing it is fairly simple if you're at all handy with electronics and a soldering iron. Contact your local RS to purchase or order the bulb, and I'm certain that they can have it installed if you're not up to trying it yourself.

Neighbor gave me this Pro-508 as it had lost it's freqency programming. I reprogrammed only to find it "instantly" loses all programming if power is disconnected. Specs say it should hold for 1 hour. ...

Need to find replacement padapter no. JoD-41U-02 for pro-2018. Can't locate one. Do you know where I can buy one.


The exact replacement power adapter for your scanner is out of production. Power requirement for the PRO-2018 is 12 volts with a minimum of 300 mA. Radio Shack has a universal power supply that will work, or you can pick one up on eBay for under $20, including shipment. You can also pick up a voltage-specific power adapter on eBay or elsewhere, but you may have to change the DC plug to match your scanner.

Very dim light on my pro 2052.


Display or backlight? If it's the backlight, you need to replace one solder-in bulb. Radio Shack part number 272-114 (5v, 25mA) will work. If it's the dispay you need to contact the Shack for a replacement.

Did your local public service switch to a digital system? If so, you cannot receive digital trunking on this radio. Ask at your local Radio Shack store, or a local ham radio operator who can help you out.
