Hello my name is kathy and i just had the same problem with mine.I know if you don"t use it very often and shut it off a lot you will loose the program. I first stoped turning it off at all and would just turn the sound all the way down. I went to each one and unlocked them, I had lost over half and the other was locked. I put them back in unlocked the ones the were locked, stoped turning it off 2 years ago and have not had a problem since. I hope you will let me know if this helped. k.ditterline@yahoo.com

WHAT CHANNELS CAN YOU USE IF YOU HAVE A POLICE SCANNER 53218


Your PRO-96 has 10 banks of 50 channels, giving you access to 500 channels for conventional systems. It also has 11 banks of 500 channels, giving you access to 5500 users on trunked systems. Detailed instructions for programming the scanner are contained in the factory operating instructions, which you can download and print at no cost here:

Pro-96 Scanner: My pro 96 scanner says all channels locked and it ...


If there is no frequencies on your scanner it will lock all channels out. if all your frequencies are on one bank and you accidentally hit that bank number and turn it off it will lock out all channels. If that's the case just hit that bank no. back on and they will unlock.

Pro-96 ,channels 1 thru 9 are locked out ,only 0 is


You are referring to banks, not channels. When bank 0 is active, then you push 0 to de-activate it, you have now removed all your banks from the scan list. To re-activate any bank, just press any number. This is confusing because locking out a channel and removing a bank from the scan list are two very different operations but use the same terminology.

When scanner is turned on it says all channels are locked radio s


If this is a trunking scanner, then you can go to your local radio shack store and have them reprogram the scanner with your local frequencies. This does sometimes occur if the trunking is not set correctly.

V-scan channels missing


Sounds like all that is happening is that the channels are locked out, you need to go through manually and unlock them. I have the same scanner and that is what I needed to do.

Which is the best sanner the pro96 or the pro106


I own both of these and like the 106 more. It isn't just because it is new, but it has several options that make it more "user friendly" as well as better features. Some of the high points are:
-Easier manual channel navigation
-Larger, easier to read display
-Easier scan list understanding
-Much better user interface (text menus)
-Colored LED that you can assign to different channels..such as your priority channels. This way you can see what your receiving at a glance without having to actually look at the display,
-Remote control capability using the Win500 software.

A Pro-96 is a good scanner, but the Pro-106 blows it out of the water.
