I have had my pro-95 for 8 years with no the trunking will not work...please advise

Your scanner may have had a logic "hiccup" for any one of many reasons, and a simple RESET may restore the trunking function.

RESET (will not wipe out frequencies or other programmed data):

- Turn the scanner OFF, and then then ON again.

- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, pen point, etc.) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then gently press and release the RESET button inside the opening.

If the RESET doesn't solve the problem, you may need to INITIALIZ the scanner.

INITIALIZE (this action WILL delete all programmed data)
Welcome To Dual Trunking appears.

- Press 0 then 1 while Welcome to Dual Trunking is displayed. Initializing Please Wait appears for about 2 seconds.

Do not turn off the scanner until the initializing process is complete. When complete M000 will appear on the top line of the display, and Bank 0 Ch 0 will appear on the bottom line.

Hopefully one of these steps will restore the trunking. If not, the scanner may need professional help.

Alpha 70 Series is not working after disconnecting PC and recnctg

Hello Suzanne. The problem you are going to find here is that Zebex doesn't make this model anymore and haven't for some time. If the unit has power and emits a beam, I have the Zebex generic Programming Card and Programming Guide available on my company's website. Have a look at the sections that include the "reset default" barcodes. Print out that page and try scanning them with your scanner. Resetting the scanner to it's default programming may get everything ironed out. If the scanner doesn't have power or emit a beam, then unfortunately you will be looking at getting a replacement scanner. I can recommend several different scanners what would work fantastically and be quite cheap. If you still need help, please feel free send a message or email me. I hope this helps. Good luck!

How do i reset frequencies on a scanner /delete frequencies

You listed your question in the PRO-2096 section, so this response applies to that model. If you have a different scanner, please let us know the make and model.

The PRO-2096 is an advanced scanner capable of monitoring both single frequency conventional systems and advanced trunking radio systems. Programming methods are detailed and lengthy and cannot be reproduced here. For specific programming instructions, please see the scanner's operating manual, which can be downloaded/printed here:

If you have questions regarding a specific feature or problem with the scanner, please let us know.

Programing for uniden bearcat scanner bc 144xl

danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.
Hope this helps you out, let us know,, Mechanic
