Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

Scanner is not picking up anything


it should have a squelch knob . Turn it all the way up and try your scan again. Also turn your volume up a little.

My Radio Shack Pro-82 Scanner is not working at all.i turned it on and it wont even scan. i cant even hear the squelch. and the only time it picks up something is when its on the air setting it picks up...


Ok I have had the same problem with the Pro 82 and the biggest problems I've found for it not to scan is Corrosion of the terminals not only outside but inside. Even on the keypad and pcb board. SOLUTION: Just take it all apart with a small philips pecision screwdriver and with a dry toothbrush scrape all the corrosion off the board. This always solves my problem and it should yours. Even if theres no corrosion visible on the terminals be assured there is still some inside keping this from functioning correctly. Shotgun420

BC72XLT scanner does not stop on some programmed channels while scanning. My other scanner will read the transmission. The numbers indicating banks 1 and 3 aare not visable during scan, are they locked...


what it is because that your other banks are locked out and thats why it by passes your frequencies...unlock your banks and it will stop on the transmissions...

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

The very part of your scanner that makes it a scanner is inop. YOU can find it but IT won't scan. Back to radio shack for warranty before they change their mind.

How to scan frequencies quietly


Yes...adjust the squelch control. This is usually a knob adjacent to your volume control. This should eliminate the static noise and you will only hear audio when someone is transmitting.
