Radio shack pro 197 mobile. I turned I. My scanner and the screen lights up and shows nothing. The only thing you can hear is static. It's like it has lost all programming completely, including the scanner program itself. HELP!

SOURCE: how to program radio shack pro 82 scanner

is it a digital scanner? You know that everyone has gone digital there fore making that kind of scanner outdated and if you are trying to listen to police u wont pick anything up. I was told that some raido shacks will re program it for you.

SOURCE: programming pro 106 scanner

Your scanner covers conventional frequencies as well as a variety of trunking systems. Programming steps can be detailed, and they vary according to the system being worked, so it's not practical to attempt a full programming tutorial in this short response. Your best bet is to review the operating manual for the scanner, and then follow the steps for the system(s) that you want to program. If you run into a specific problem, let us know and we'll do our best to work through it with you.

Need the manual? You can download/print it here:

I have a Radio shack hand help police scanner, when I put the batteries in and turn it on, i just hear this low level static and some small clicking noise. The display finally came on for a few minutes but...


Take the scanner back to radio shack for an exchange. If you have had the radio too long then take the scanner back to radio shack and they will send it to their service center for repairs. Personnally I would upgrade to a digital scanner as things are getting ready to change nation wide. Most goverments will be upgrading to P25 digital to comply with the requirements of Homeland Security.

I have programmed my pro164 scanner using win97 software and the pc patch cable. i have frequencies programmed to channels onto bank 0. i also programmed the desired talkgroups onto bank 0. problem is when...


you will have to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.

The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.

This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ .
but if you have tried doing this.i advise do it again.again run the program by connecting the cable again.if you have not tried it then do it again. if still the same problem.then it might be the problem with the scanner.get it rechecked from radio shack. there are many many users facing this same problem this particular model of radioshack scanner and other model in which this same problem occurs is pro-197. get it checked with radio shack.tech. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Have a Radio Shack PRO 2018 that stopped working properly,Scans but necver finds anything.adjust squelch and nothing but static so it is not the speaker.PLEASE HELP


Did your local public service switch to a digital system? If so, you cannot receive digital trunking on this radio. Ask at your local Radio Shack store, or a local ham radio operator who can help you out.

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.

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise
