Question about Radio Shack Pro-94 Scanner

1 Answer

Stinkin' Scanner Well.. Im in big trouble... i broke my boyfriends scanner by pressing random buttons... or so it seems.... I believe it is the above mentioned model but all it says on it is Dual Trunking, 1000 channels and Radio Shack.... As i said earlier... I just pushed random buttons and know it won't work. When we turn it on we get numbers at the top but the numbers skip... we see 0,1,2,3 then 6,7,8 in the places with no numbers there is just a small dot. underneath the numbers shows a plus sign, under the dots shows a similar dot. Underneath the nuimbers it says scan down or scan up... Any suggestions??? Thanks

Hi Barney,

I take it that you have frequencies programmed into the scanner, so this is the solution to your problem.

On the keyboard of your radio scanner you will find a button marked L/O or L/Out, when your scanner is in scanning mode, press the Mon or Hold button, this will stop it from scanning.

Now select the channel of your programmed frequencies, starting with Channel 1. To do this press Hold followed by 1, if this channel shows a L/O icon on the LCD screen, press the L/O button and the L/O icon should go out. continue through each channel, until you undo the L/O from each channel by following the steps I have described above, once you have removed the L/O icon from all the channels that were locked out you can then press the Scan button and you'll be listening to the frequencies that you programmed into your scanner.

Note: If you have not programmed any frequencies into your radio scanner, then you will not be able to hear anything, as nothing programmed to hear and L/O is the default setting on all channels, until each one is programmed with the frequencies of your choice.

How to Program a frequency?

Press Prog button, select channel to store frequency, E.G:Ch:1 168.5000

Remember to always press the (.) decimal button in the correct place, else you will get ERR message on the LCD, now press Enter button, you now have the first frequency stored in you radio scanner on Channel 1, now press the Delay button, so that it doesn't start scanning for 2-3 seconds after a transmission is received.

Continue with the above setup one channel at a time until you have programmed your radio scanner to your liking.

I hope I have helped you in finding the solution to your query.

I have a Pro-95 scanner that I enjoy alot, the problem is that the keypad seems to be locked, sound and squelch work fine but not a single button, I've tried the reset button several times. Any help would...

Look at the keyboard and find the button the shows the symbol for a key and a symbol for a light bulb. Press the FUNC button and then the key indicated above. The words key unlocked should appear in the display. Repeat the process to lock the keys again.

Scanner problems Its stays on Auto-Scann and buttons dont work

Resetting or initializing the scanner may clear your problem.

To RESET the scanner:

- Turn the power OFF, then turn it ON again.
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip end, ballpoint pen tip, etc.) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then press and release the button inside the opening.

If the above doesn't clear the problem, try the more drastic INITIALIZE procedure. NOTE: this step will erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner and restore it to original factory settings. To INITIALIZE the unit:

- Turn the scanner OFF then ON again. The scanner briefly displays the DSP boot version, then "Welcome to Digital Trunking" displays.
- Press "0". The scanner displays "System Tests Select Test Exits if no Key Press"
- Press "1". The scanner displays "Factory Unit Erase Memory ENTER if Yes CL to Exit"
- Press ENTER. The scanner displays "Initializing Clr Main Mem V-Scan is OK Please Wait"
- Do not power the scanner OFF until INITIALIZE is complete. When the process is complete the scanner will display "M0000" on the top line and "Bank 0 Ch 0" on the bottom line.

If neither of the above steps works for scanner I recommend that you take it to your nearest Radio shack and arrange certified repairs.

How do I do a master reset on the pro 83 scanner

To reset the scanner (clear a problem or keyboard lockup):
- Tune the power OFF and then back ON.
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, ballpoint pen tip, etc) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner and gently press the button inside.

If the RESET does not clear the problem you can INITIALIZE the scanner, but this procedure will clear/erase all information that you have programmed into the scanner.
- Power the scanner OFF and then ON.
- Press and hold the TUNE/CLEAR button while pressing the reset button as above. The display will momentarily blank.
- When the display resumes, press TUNE/CLEAR again.

How do you work the scanner on a lexmark p4350?

These are the steps that are in the manual:
- Have it on the scanner setting (by pressing the big silver button on the left)
- Press page preview
- Press the colour or black print button (which are also known as the 'start' buttons)
- Then it should link it to your computer.

But, if your in the same ituation as me, ive followed all the steps and it still doesnt send it to my printer... its so irritating. Im thinking my one is just broken or something.

Scanner is not connected (UMAX Astra 1220S)

Ensure the scanner is powered on. Change the USB cable. Use the correct driver depending upon your OS, XP or Win 98 or WinNT.

Samsung CLX3160FN: scanner stays locked

Hi Stijntje,

The scanner lock is actually a physical locking mechinism. It is not a control panel option.
the scanner is locked in a safe position before they ship the unit to prevent damage to the scanner.

I believe that this sliding latch can be located ( while looking straight at the unit ) on the under side of the scanner, above the area where the paper comes out, more to the left hand side.

locate the latch and slide it from the locked position to the unlock position.

Press stop/clear button to clear the error and try again.

Good luck,

Channels locked out

Mrs. Santa brought me a new PRO-97 yesterday. I'm new to this - just wanted an aircraft frequency scanner, but got the whole shameal. I had a bad AC adapter and attempted to fix the power problem as directed in the manual by re-initializing the scanner. That blew all memory away.

I received the feared All Channels Locked Out message and through a little research and fiddling, realized the scanner was pre-programmed. An Addendum came with the scanner with instructions to reload the 155 pre-programmed frequencies:
1) Turn off the scanner and then turn it on again.
2) When 'Multi-system Trunking Scanner' appears, press PGM.
3) Press 1.

This will reload the pre-programmed frequencies erased by the re-init. Press scan and it'll be as new as outta the box!

Best wishes,
