Question about Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

Open Question

Scanner has a high pitched whistle in audio path

The day after Christmas I turned the scanner on and it scanned for 5 minutes no sound. HMMM! Notice a high pitcheed 3khz or so whistle in the audio making the data channel worthless and garbling the received audio. I have a nice new looking PRO 95 will all accesories collecting dust............Luckily I had a BC245 on Standby

SOURCE: NO SQUELCH

I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Sincerely

Greg Stevens

Turn it on, and when "Welcome" appears, press zero, then press one. It will display a message indicating it is initializing to the factory state.

Good Evening, I have a i420 Kodak Scanner when scanning in images it makes this high pitch screaming noise.


I highly doubt the main board is going bad. There is a huge difference between an electronic high pitched noise vs a scanner noise. Does the noise only occur while scanning or when parts are moving? If yes, then a scanner noise. If the noise is on all the time even when idle, then you have an electronic noise like an open or leaking capacitor.
On this particular model the seperation idle roller builds up with paper dust and will cause a high pitched noise. Like nails on a chalk board. Very simple fix. Open cover. Grab seperation assembly and pull toward the tray at the front of the scanner, it will pop loose then lift up. Make sure to pop it back into place good. Be forcefull. With the assembly in hand, clean, and lube idle roll. It is the first metal/plastic roll the paper touches at the tray entrance. Also clean the shafts and bushings for the rubber rolls. Reassemble and you are all set. Happens on EVERY I420 scanner I have seen.

Scan head is stuck in path and will not reset


I had the same problem. I disconnected the scanner from the PC. restarted my computer. Shook my scanner a little bit while PC was rebooting (or maybe a little slap) and when PC was rebooted), i plugged my scanner back and it recalibrated automatically.

High pitch scream after i260 scans a few pages. Scanning stops


the main board in that scanner is going bad which is why its making the high pitch sound. Time to get another scanner or call Kodak and get a replacement scanner or go back to the store where you got it from and get a new one.

Same problem, high pitched noise over regular sound and no pictur


No guarantees with this diagnosis. But it sounds like an HT ( high tension) leak This is often caused by the lead becoming partly unplugged ( being bumped or moved) and because of dust buildup it arcs making a high pitched hissing whistle.Ther lamp may also have been affected by the HT leak. The safest option for you is to call a service technician to it, as opening it up could cosntitute a a danger to the unskilled.

DR-9080C intermittent stops during scanning which last 3 to 5 minutes


Do you have enough hard disk space? Reinstall your driver software. Run Scandisk on the Comp.

Is the problem coming on after a set time interval, any heating smell?

Error 5


I can't seem to find a error code 5. What software are you using to scan? Did the error start right after your first? Had the scanner been working?
