need to do a RESET. Then try your local WX frequency to verify it works. The RESET will wipe out all existing programming, just to warn you. Check your manual, or RadioShack.com for details.

SOURCE: Pro-96 Scanner: My pro 96 scanner says all channels locked and it ...

If there is no frequencies on your scanner it will lock all channels out. if all your frequencies are on one bank and you accidentally hit that bank number and turn it off it will lock out all channels. If that's the case just hit that bank no. back on and they will unlock.

SOURCE: 800 MHz frequency Mode problem

You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

I have a radio shack pro 2096 that worked for years came home one day and no digital channels come thru anymore haven't touched a thing?!!


They have probably 'rebanded'- meaning that they moved the control channels. Go to radio reference dot com and see what the control channels are. IF they moved the 3 or 4 control channels and alternate control channels to the 700MHz range, then the PRO96 and PRO2096 probably cannot track it anymore and you will need a newer scanner from Uniden Bearcat or from Whistler. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

How do I cleear locked out channels when I cant find them


To review locked out channels and clear them if desired:
- Press MAN
- Repeatedly press FUNC and L/OUT
- Each time you press FUNC and L/OUT the scanner will advance to the next locked out channel.

To review locked out channels in SEARCH banks:
- Press SRCH
- Select the bank to review
- Press FUNC then L/OUT
- Use the up and down arrows to review the locked out frequencies

To clear the locked out frequencies in a bank:
- Press SRCH
- Select the bank that you wish to clear
- Press FUNC then L/OUT
- Press FUNC then 6
- Select from the options presented

Unfortunately the PRO-2096 does not have a global clear function like many scanners have.

Squelch is open all the time


Often the potentometer (squelch control) becomes worn or dirty, this can be sometimes cured by spraying a WD40 or similar oil and then rapidly moving the control down and up. Do not use oil that is conductive.
