Question about Radio Shack Pro-83 Scanner

1 Answer

I followed the manual to wipe out every freq on my scanner (Pro 83 compact radio shack). The way it tells you is if you are having problems, you wipe it out then you can bring your freq back. I want to completely reprogram it. It was my Dad's and it is all messed up and I want to put the freq in correctly. Please, tell me how to wipe it out then manually put them in one by one. Thank You

Just select the channel you want to reprogram and enter the new frequency.. It will overwrite (replace) the old frequency.

Need to do a master reset on pro 84 sanner but don't have manual


To RESET the PRO-84, turn the scanner OFF, then hold in the 2, 9 and HOLD keys and power the scanner ON. The word CLEAr will appear on the display to confirm the RESET.
While the manual for the PRO-84 has not been posted by Radio Shack, it is essentially a red PRO-83. You can download/print the 83 manual here:

Scanner not picking up local police-Fire freq


Do you still receive NOAA weather frequencies? Sounds like your local agencies have switched from simplex/standard frequency operation to trunking. I suggest you visit www.RadioReference.com to view the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area.

Your scanner has somehow gotten out of alignment, and there's no way to fix it with just a screwdriver. Your best bet for repair is your local Radio Shack. If they can't do the repair they should be able to refer you to a local, or they can ship it off for alignment.

It worked great for me and I had my scanner set up and working very quickly!! Hope this helps you all as much as it did me.. the manual is for the PRO-83 200 Channel compact scanner w/signal stalker search and lighted keypad.

1000 scanner radio shack


press the manual button a few times, and make sure there are actually some freq. programmed into the unit. if there are freq other than 000.000000 in there, press the s/s (lockout) button and see if this unlocks the frequencies to allow them to be scanned.
