I have a Pro 96 that when I turn it off and turn in back on the screen says '"DSP LOAD PC / IF Port Flash Men" I've tried turning it on and off a couple times and also tried resetting it a few times...


Do you have something plugged into the side of the radio where the PC/IF port plug is? It sounds like it's looking for an update, and you need the RS cable a the 96 software in order to do that. Google it on radio reference.

Radio shack pro-96 scanner screen blinks and loss of audio


If the scanner's display locks up or does not work properly
after you connect a power source or install batteries, you
might need to initialize it.
This procedure clears all information you stored in the
scanner's memory. Initialize the scanner only when you
are sure the scanner is not working properly.
1. Turn off the scanner, then turn it on again. Multi-system
Trunking Scanner appears.
2. Press 0 while Multi-system Trunking Scanner appears.
3. Press 1.
4. Press ENT. Initializing please stand by. appears for about 5
seconds.
Do not turn off the scanner until the initalization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000
appears on the top line of the display. Bank 0 Ch 00
appears on the third line.

Can,t get scanner off all channels locked mode


Please try this!!
You may need a soft or hard reset. Here's some reading and instructions.
Please use this first!
resetting your scanner
1. Turn off your scanner, and then turn it on again.

2. Insert a pointed object into the reset hole on the back
of the scanner. Then, gently press and release the reset
button. Pressing reset does not clear the scanner's
working memory or the V-Scanner folders.

If this doesn't work here's step two! CAUTION. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, but it MAY Fix the Problem!!

Initializing your scanner clears all information stored in your
scanner's working memory. Initialize your scanner only when
you are sure it is not working properly. V-Scanner memory is
not affected when you initialize the scanner.

1. Turn off the scanner, and turn it on again. First, the DSP
boot version, and then Welcome To Digital Trunking appears.

2. Press 0. The following messages appear on the display:

System Tests

Select Test
Exits if no
Key Press

3. Press 1. The following messages appear on the display:

Factory Init
Erase Memory
ENTER if Yes
CL to EXIT

4. Press ENT. The following messages appear on the display:

Initializing
Clr Main Mem
V-Scan is OK
Please Wait

5. Do not turn off your scanner until the initialization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000 and
Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display.

Hope this works.. Happy Scanning

Just about any electronics/radio shop can repair your scanner, but for the best job with factory trained technicians, factory parts, and a repair warranty, you can take the unit to any Radio Shack and they will either have the job done locally or send it in for factory repair.

Scanner problems Its stays on Auto-Scann and buttons dont work


Resetting or initializing the scanner may clear your problem.

To RESET the scanner:

- Turn the power OFF, then turn it ON again.
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip end, ballpoint pen tip, etc.) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then press and release the button inside the opening.

If the above doesn't clear the problem, try the more drastic INITIALIZE procedure. NOTE: this step will erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner and restore it to original factory settings. To INITIALIZE the unit:

- Turn the scanner OFF then ON again. The scanner briefly displays the DSP boot version, then "Welcome to Digital Trunking" displays.
- Press "0". The scanner displays "System Tests Select Test Exits if no Key Press"
- Press "1". The scanner displays "Factory Unit Erase Memory ENTER if Yes CL to Exit"
- Press ENTER. The scanner displays "Initializing Clr Main Mem V-Scan is OK Please Wait"
- Do not power the scanner OFF until INITIALIZE is complete. When the process is complete the scanner will display "M0000" on the top line and "Bank 0 Ch 0" on the bottom line.

If neither of the above steps works for scanner I recommend that you take it to your nearest Radio shack and arrange certified repairs.

I have a radio shack pro 94 scanner that gets stuck in the high channels. How can I make it scan to other channels


Getting "stuck" indicates that the scanner may need to be reset to restore proper operation. This is a fairly drastic step that will erase ALL information that you've programmed into the scanner, but it's about the only fix. To reset the PRO-94:

- Turn the scanner OFF

- While holding down the 2 and 9 keys, power the scanner ON.

- CLEAR will flash for about 5 seconds as the scanners clears its memory and restores factory settings. Do not turn the scanner OFF or press any keys until the CLEAR message stops flashing.

Need to reprogram hand held pro 96


Radio Shack can "CLone" your scanner with one in the store - try that first to see if it will work and let me know.

Alas, another PRO-96 problem. I bought this at a


the most common problem with handheld scanners with no receive is a broken solder joint where the center pin of the antenna connects to the circuit board inside. It is a very small connection to solder. you can press it lightly with a toothpick to see if it responds.
