I have a radio shack pro 96 digital trucking scanner.the other day we finally put up my outside antenna for it.it worked fine all through xmas and new years.the other day turned it on and it would not pick up the channels in scan mode.i know there is nothing wrong with the scanner cause when i go to search mode and go to the cb channels and stull it picks up fine.if i go to the weather band it picks it up.i know my police and fire channels work cause when i go to manuel and go through the channels the channel they are using picks up.is it possible i could have hit a button for it not to pick up the channels in scan mode?please help

    the exterior antenna we just put up i had the hand held scanner since 2003.this is not the 1st time it has done this.i just hope i dont have to buy another one cause this one was very expensive

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.

    Do you know someone with a full functioning base scanner? Your text said you just put it up the other day, not that you had it for three years. Can you take this to a premium and mail me or live chat?

    We now boost the comment. You didn't say it was hand held. Silly me thinking outside antenna and a base station. Is this ALL the egggs for the basket or do we need to stripe em?

Radio auto off!!


It may be a corrupted file during startup operations. If you haven't done so already, I would try removing battery and reinserting. A third notable point would be to make sure you have sufficient battery life. BB devices wont operate radio with lower than 15% battery...


OR

Go into Manage Connections and click in the box next to Mobile Network.

Hope it helps

I have a radio shack pro-164 radio scanner and i need help programing it ?


I recently bought the same scanner at radio shack, I was wearing my emt clothes at the time and this may be the reason why he programmed it for free, with their software,I don't know.
But ask radio shack to program it for you for free, ( just tell them you can have it back if they don't..) But he programmed everything in my area for me and it did take a few hours to do this also.
Hope this helps out.

I just had exactly the same problem, I banged the back of the phone a couple of times on my palm.
I think since it fell the hardware antenna was not touching the connections.
Best of luck

Internal Antenna not working anymore


if you do a search at pdaphonehome.com a guy has replaced his antenna and provided step by step instructions for how to do it yourself with pictures. I don't know if frying it can make sure getting a new antenna will fix that but thats something you can try before replacing.
