    Is the battery charged? Have you tried the "search" button. The "SCAN" button? Is it locked out? What do you see on the screen when you turn it on?

When you first turn on the pro 95 and the dual trunking screen is still on insert (gently) a pin or straightened paper clip in the small hole just above and to the right of the external power plug. That will reset the radio. Once it is reset (wait until it finishes resetting) you may need to initialize it. Turn it off then back on, while it is still displaying the dual trunking screen press "0" and then the "1". Do not turn the radio off until the Initializing is finished.
Now re program your radio if you with to use the "SCAN" button. Other wise you should be able to use the "search" button to select the service you wish to listen to.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I am trying to program P-25 systems on my uniden bcd396xt scanner, but I cannot find the tgids to enter into the scanner.Can anyone help?


You should only have to program the CC (control channel) frequencies for P-25 systems. You should be able to pick up all talkgroups. Then you could I.D. and program only the talkgroups you want to hear.

Cant pick up stations


Most police stations are using the new motorola trunking units, they are on encrypted custom band channels and you will not be able to hear them. All police helicopters are equipped with them. All i can hear where i live is Fire dispatch, I cant even hear the fire fighters responses .

I can not get any sound out of my radio shack pro 97 scanner I turn the volume all the way up and hear a light uzzin sound I have it on the weather channel and no sounds my scanner saids all channels...


Nothing's wrong. All of your frequencies have been deleted (pre-programmed PLUS anything you entered yourself).
You'll need to re-enter all of the frequencies to get it working again.

Not hearing certain frequincies


not all scanners will pick up the same, the hand held can't pick up frequency as far as the other one.

Scanners


Other than size of the scanners there is no difference. I used to think that a home Base station scanner would work better. This is not true. Every scanner I purchase now is a portable. I use them at home and even hook them up to an antenna on the roof. They work great and you always have a choice to take them on the road with you.

Your problem specifically sounds like it is probably a programming error. Take a look at you frequencies on Radioreference.com to make sure you have the most current. then look up in you manual the programming section in your manual and plug in the frequencies and it should work fine.

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.

Pro-97


I, too, recently experienced the same difficulty with my two year old Pro97 scanner and was able to correct the problem. I removed the back cover and followed the center wire from the antennae connection to the top board that has the green resistor. With a magnifying glass, I looked at the connection, and as it makes the bend onto the top board, the connection was broken. I carefully soldered the connection from the green resistor to the wire from the center antennae connection. Everything works like new now. If your scanner is still under warranty, you may want to have it replaced.
