If all else fails, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scanner to bring it back to normal operation.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Press 0 after the scanner completes its boot routine
- Press 1 after the menu appears
- Press ENT

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.

How to re-set to original programming ?


To RESET your PRO-2096:
- Power the scanner OFF.
- Power the scanner back ON.
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip end, ballpoint tip, etc.) into the RESET opening on the back of the scanner and gently press the button inside.

If the RESET does not clear your problems you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. Instructions for this procedure are on page 77 of the scanner operating manual. If you need a copy of the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Unlock code all frequencies for pro 2096 digital scanner


Sorry, but there is no magic code that will "unlock" your Pro-2096 or any other modern scanner. If you want a scanner with wider frequency coverage, you'll need to purchase one that comes that way from the factory.

Display keeps going out of the pro 2096, it was repaired once,,,, is there any simple fixes to this?


Unfortunately there is not. This is one of the "gremlins" that plagued the 2096. From what I have been told by other 2096 owners, the problem comes from a fault where the ribbon cable (or flex) joins to the LCD display. You may want to try opening the scanner and checking the connection. Sometimes gently pressing on the joint with a pencil eraser can re-establish the connection.

Sorry I don't have a "quick fix" for you, but hopefully this will help steer you in the right direction for troubleshooting.
