Re: Locked out!

Go to the channel that is locked out and push the l/o button above the light/lock key. it should unlock the frequncy so that it will scan through . but you have to do this with every frequency thats locked out. if it says 000.000 then you have to program it, and then the l/o will be gone

All channels on the scanner are locked out, how do i unlock them. i have the pro 95

  • Hi, I can help.

  • If you have some bands locked out (not all bands can be locked out. By default 1 will remain active) then just push the number of the locked out bands to make the bands come back live.

  • Just a side note, even if channels are locked out you can press "MAN" and then the up arrow and down arrow and manual scroll through them.

  • So to unlock frequencies at once have to be done separate for each band.
  1. Press "search."
  2. Now select a bank ie. 1, 2, 3, etc.
  3. Now press "FUNC."
  4. Now press "L/O"
  5. You should now see "Lockout List" on the screen.
  6. Now press "FUNC"
  7. Now press the number "6."
  8. Now "Confirm Clear List" should appear on your screen.
  9. Now press the number "1" key indicated for "yes."
  • If every frequency in that bank is locked out then you will have to unlock a couple manually first and then the instructions listed above will clear the rest for you. So just press the "MAN" button and select a channel that is locked out and press "L/O" and that channel is now unlocked. You will have to do this for each band (1-10) separately.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

How do I unlock my scanner?

Channel Lockout You can lock out a channel so it is not scanned. Channel Lockout does not erase the frequency from the channel. You can lock out up to 50 channels, including the Priority channel.
Lockout information is retained in the memory when the scanner is turned off.To Lock out a Channel
Example: Suppose you want to lock out Channel 2 because it stops on transmissions you don't want to hear.Press LOCKOUT when the scanner stops on Channel 2.The scanner locks out Channel 2, Then it immediately advances to the next channel that is not locked out, and resumes scanning.In the Manual mode, press LOCKOUT to lock out the displayed channel. Pressing LOCKOUT does not advance to the next channel in Manual mode.L/O appears in the display to indicate the displayed channel is locked out.Whenever you want to search for channels that are locked out, press MANUAL repeatedly to go through all 50 channels. If a channel is locked out, L/O
appears in the display.Restore a Locked Out Channel To unlock a channel so that it can be monitored during scanning:1. Press MANUAL repeatedly to find the locked out channel.2. Press LOCKOUT again to unlock the displayed channel. L/O no longer appears in the display.Restore All Locked Out Channel To unlock all channels, you must be in the Manual Mode.1. Press MANUAL.
2. Press and hold LOCKOUT to unlock all channels. The L/O indicator goes out on any channel previously locked out.

I have the BC370CRS SCANNER I am trying to clear all the memory and reset it. It is telling me to hold down 2, 9, and hold and turn it on. That is not working. Can you please tell me another way to do...

Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

All but trunk one are locked out. don't know how

You're either going to have to reset the channels through programming or you may be able to manually unlock each channel.

Pro-96 ,channels 1 thru 9 are locked out ,only 0 is

You are referring to banks, not channels. When bank 0 is active, then you push 0 to de-activate it, you have now removed all your banks from the scan list. To re-activate any bank, just press any number. This is confusing because locking out a channel and removing a bank from the scan list are two very different operations but use the same terminology.

We have a handheld radioshack 1000 channel scanner. All channels are locked up. How do we unlock?

try holding the LO (lockout) button down for a few seconds and it will probably unlock all the channels on the bank its locked up in, then move to the next bank of channels and do it again

All channels locked after using win 96 on my pro-96 scanners

hello my name is kathy and i just had the same problem with mine.I know if you don"t use it very often and shut it off a lot you will loose the program. I first stoped turning it off at all and would just turn the sound all the way down. I went to each one and unlocked them, I had lost over half and the other was locked. I put them back in unlocked the ones the were locked, stoped turning it off 2 years ago and have not had a problem since. I hope you will let me know if this helped.

All channels locked out pro-2055

I hope this will help. It shows locking and unlocking ids while scanning and while in a bank.

Locking/Unlocking IDs Contents You can lock out IDs you don't want to hear such as telemetry, MDT's, dog catcher, etc. To Lock out an ID while scanning, quickly press L/OUT while the ID is displayed. To Lock or Unlock an ID manually: 1. In Manual mode select any channel of the bank you want to lock or unlock an ID in by entering the bank number and channel number (Ex: 001) then press MAN to advance to the channel. 2. Press PGM then TRUNK to put the scanner in program and trunk modes. You will see the bank number (0-9), list number (0-4), and the list status (ON or OFF) on the 1st line, the ID# in the list (0-29) on the 2nd line, the ID on the 3rd line, and bank tag on the 4th line (if programmed). 3. Press TRUNK (each time) to select the ID list (0-4). 4. Select the ID# (0-29) by pressing up.jpg or dn.jpg (or press and hold; faster) then press L/OUT to lock or unlock the ID. An L will appear to the right of the ID# if the ID is locked out. 5. Press MAN to exit programming. To Unlock IDs in a bank: 1. In Manual mode select any channel of the bank you want to view the locked out IDs in by entering the bank number and channel number (Ex: 001) then press MAN to advance to the channel. 2. Press PGM then TRUNK to put the scanner in program and trunk modes. You will see the ID list. 3. Press FUNC then L/OUT (each time) to view the locked IDs. Press L/OUT to unlock the ID. The next locked out ID will appear. 4. Press MAN to exit programming. Note: You cannot unlock all IDs at one time.
