Question about Uniden Radio Communications
All I want this scanner to do is pick up Hwy Patrol in SC. I have entered the correct frequencies but all I am getting is static, regardless of how far I turn the squelch back
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: scanner static
Use the channel lock out control, unless it is a frequency that you listen to, you may have interference that is causing random static. use a noise filter mechanism to minimize this problem, or buy a specialized scanner antenna that's guaranteed to minimize static.
If no avail, you may need to send it in to a store.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: NO SQUELCH
I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

do you still have a warranty? because it is going to need repair
you can try to leave it unplugged for a while , but otherwise its going to need repair

SOURCE: scanner squelch
I have a couple suggestions for you. The unit has probably gotten oxidized controls from age. Any thing with rotating contacts over a period of time will get dirty. You need to purchase some contact cleaner (Read info on the can that it is safe for plastics) and flush the squelch and volume controls. You may also have to open the unit and identify what they call 'pots' or little trimmers to clean and adjust. Set your squelch control at mid range and with an insulated tool turn the pots a little in both directions and return it to original the positon. This will clean the control and when you find the one that effects your squelch it may have drifted and need to be readjusted until you have better control on the front knob.

The cheapest solution would be to directly program the frequencies that are available in your area, usually this is public information with the exception of high security channels, you can call each location and ask them what frequency they broadcast
