    first press the manual button so you can go through the channels one by one. Then look for a button that has L/O(lock out) push this once for every channel you have a frequency programmed for it, the channel will probably not unlock if there is no frequecy programmed to it.

You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again until you get to an empty channel and then enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scans quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

Lockout message


Uniden has a webpage with a free manual pdf download for your scanner.

You'll be able to get the manual HERE The link is upper right side of page..
If all your channels are locked out, press and hold the l/o button for at least 2 seconds, you'll hear 2 beeps and that should unlock them.

I have a uniden ubc73xlt handheld scanner,can't program channels, keeps saying locked out, have tried to unlock as per instructions but not unlocking.


Try a master rest:
If the scanner's display locks up or stops operating
properly, you might need to reset the scanner.
Caution: This procedure clears all the information
you have stored in the scanner. Before you reset the
scanner, try turning it off and on to see if it begins
working properly. Reset the scanner only when you
are sure it is not working properly.
1. Turn off the scanner.
2. While holding down 2, 9, and Hold, turn on the
scanner. It takes about 3 seconds to initialize
and CLEAR appears.

try holding the LO (lockout) button down for a few seconds and it will probably unlock all the channels on the bank its locked up in, then move to the next bank of channels and do it again

Scanner problem


To unlock a channel, press 'manual' & keep pressing it until you reach the channel that's locked out, then press 'L/O'. Repeat until all channels are unlocked.

To program, press 'manual' until you get to the first "empty" channel, then enter the desired frequency using the keypad, then press 'E'. Repeat as needed.
