SOURCE: Squelch is open all the time

I had the same problem on a pro-2096. Luckily I work at RadioShack, so I was able to send it out for repair for free. Our repair center replaced the PCB, and it works fine now.

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.

Sincerely

Greg Stevens

SOURCE: scanner wont scan

provided you turned the squelch know and it didnt help, i would trace back from the squelch control to the first and second transistor you come to and that should be the squelch circuit. if you know how to check them with an ohm meter you can find out which one it is, if not you can just replace them both for under 5 bucks.

Radio shack noaa desk scanners squelch sound unit wont scan


If the squelch is on, there can't be a loud noise. Either the sqelch is completely off or you are not tuned to a station. NOAA broadcasts are continuous, not intermittent

I have the pro 96 for about 2 years and I can hear the squelch sound but its not picking up chatter.


Try turning the squelch to minimum, press Scan, or you may have to program it. To program, Press PGM, select the channel you want, press PGM, use the number key and ./DELAY to enter the frequency including the decimal point you want to store, if you make a mistake press CLR, press the ENTER button to store it. You can get your frequency's for your state at www.RadioReference.com ...hope this was helpful..

Turn it on, press the manual button,then rotate the squelch knob until you hear silent,press scan and wait to see if you hear transmissions,if not ,you may need to re-program it, to re-program, press manual,enter the channel number,press manual,enter the frequency you want including the decimal point, press E. If you make a mistake,press CLR to erase. You can get the frequency for your state at RadioFreq.com or RadioReferance.com. hope this helps..

I cant get my 350a to lock in on a channel when its scanning in the private mold.it will try sometimes but wont hold them. I can push the hold button and hear crystal clear in the private mold. help...


If you haven't already done so, while scanning in the PRIVATE mode, turn the SQUELCH control down slowly until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise. Then turn the SQUELCH up slowly until scanning resumes. This should set the threshold so that the scanner will stop on an active frequency.

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.
