First of all, make sure your smartphone is set-up to use your in-home WiFi or you will get a very expensive data bill from your cellphone company, or if you use this outside of a WiFi area.
Next, if it's an Android phone, go buy a $10 Google Play card.
Go to Google play and download an app called "Police Scanner 5-0" - it only costs a few dollars, which is why you need the Google Play card to pay for it. After loaded, go to Directory. United States. Arizona. and there you will find "Glendale Police Dispatch". Let me know how this works for you or if you have any more questions.

Hopefully Resetting or Initializing the scanner will clear the problem and get it working again for you. Instructions for these procedures are on page 38 and 39 of the scanner operating manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

How do I program an 8 digit frequency into the scanner when only allows me to enter 7?


Just forget the 8th digit. If it's a zero it's meaningless (last digit zero never needs to be programmed). If it's anything else the scanner will still pull in the signal without the last digit.

I just bought a used PRO-2021 Programmable Scanner. Shouldn't the display have backlighting? If so, can I get it repaired? What cost am I looking at? Thanks. --- Al


The PRO-2021 has a, "Electro Luminescence" (lighting) panel mounted behind the LCD display which has likely died of old age. The panel is Radio Shack part number L-1976 (GE-85D-6067), but with your scanner being out of production for about 25 years, the part will be just about impossible to find.

My pro 82 quit working there is a small battery on the board the voltage reads 3.4 i suspect that battery because twice when I tuched the bat with a tooth pick the scanner worked then stopped again


That Battery is probably a 3 Volt Button Cell so reading 3.4 Volts means the battery doesn't have a load on it, which could mean that the soldering on the board is bad and is also why when you touched it with the toothpick it would turn on for a bit cause you would have pushed it to where the circuit was completed.

Stereo Color Wiring Diagram For 1998 S-10 Pickup


Don't fool around most all the stores that sell the aftermarket radios sell the adaper kit to plug it right in even Wal-Mart has some of them. The plug plugs into the factory wring plugs and the wires are marked just like the ones on the new radio B+ (neg) speaker right front pos and neg and so on. Crimpem on and plug em in and play right. No head scraching. Best but circuit city and other electronics stores that do car stero installs keep them in stock for all popular cars and light trucks
