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.

The RS Pro 96 digital scanner radio locks up. The display comes on but the keyboard is nonfunctional. Nothing on the keyboard will work. Resetting the unit does not help. The lock function is not on. Not...


Check the small battery on the circuit board. Another possibility is that you don't have enough battery voltage to operate the unit. Even external power supplies may not produce enough voltage if the main battery is bad.

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.

Pro 96 scanner only scans bank 3 and 4. i am sure


While it's scanning, press any keyboard number (0 thru 9) to activate/deactivate scanning on the corresponding bank.

Can I upgrade to recieve marks system.


If you mean the State of Ohio MARCS system, then you need a digital trunking scanner. The Radio Shack Pro-96 and PRO-2096 will work as will the new GRE 500/600 units and a couple of Uniden Bearcats. They must say "Digital Trunking" or "P-25" for it to work on Ohio MARCS.

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.

Display is blacked out


I had the same problem with my Pro 96 display not displaying and followed thtough with Standers420's suggestion of taking the scanner apart and checking the ribbon wire from the board to the display. I put a little contact cleaner on my finger and kinda worked it into the leads on both sides of the wire, near each connection. Very carefully I might add. IT WORKED!! And it's really easy to do as well. So now for the first time in over 7 month's I have functionality back with my scanner. Because without the display, you can't actually use it to it's full capabilities. Thanks, Standers420!!
