Re: 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.

All the channels are locked out so I can not scan

Hi Loris,

First, you turn on the radio, then press Mon/Hold key, then press No. [1] key. if your scanner is programmed, you should see the frequency displayed on the screen, example: 162.9875MHz, also on the screen you will see L/O icon, press L/O key and it will no longer show, then press Mon/Hold key and you'll go to channel [2], follow the above steps until you've unlocked all channels that are programmed in your radio scanner, when complete, press scan and your scanner will stop on any transmission it receives.

If, however, you have not programmed any frequencies into your scanner, all you'll get as a frequency reading: 000.0000MHz, meaning you won't hear anything.

Programming frequencies is easy, but you need to have a hard copy of your favorite frequencies for your location, these can be obtained from: where every USA state is covered, just copy and paste into any word processor and print out.

You need to do the following to program.

Press the [Prog] key, then select the channel to program to, then enter the frequency (key by key) leaving nothing out, that is as it's printed on the frequency list including the [.] decimal point, then press [Delay] key, then press [L/O] key (if icon is shown on display), then press [Prog] key again to go to the next channel, continue to follow the above steps until you have enough frequencies programmed to listen to.

Only select frequencies for your location, as some will not be available even if in your state.

I hope I have been of help to you.

The NOAA weather frequencies have constant broadcasts, so your scanner "locks" onto them. The only ways to prevent this are to either delete the weather frequency or lock it out. To delete, just program the frequency "0.0" (zero point zero) into the channel. To lock it out, press the L/O key while on the weather freq.

Pro-96 Scanner: My pro 96 scanner says all channels locked and it ...

If there is no frequencies on your scanner it will lock all channels out. if all your frequencies are on one bank and you accidentally hit that bank number and turn it off it will lock out all channels. If that's the case just hit that bank no. back on and they will unlock.

RS Pro 2020 Scanner won't come out of scan mode, pad ineffective

If you mean a Bearcat 2020 radio, then that unit is ancient, and I'm amazed that it still works. If you're only monitoring one frequency, you can get a really cheap scanner to do that and replace the 2020.

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel

you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise

Stuck on scan mode

Hi, It sounds to me like your keypad is locked. Pg 63 of your manual.
***using the keylock ***
Once you program your scanner, you can protect it from accidental program changes by turning on the key lock feature. When the keypad is locked, the only controls that operate are FUNC, key , SQ, and VOL. You cannot activate the keylock while you are entering a frequency into a channel. To turn on the keylock, press FUNC then key . Key locked appears for about 1 second. Key locked appears when you press any key after locking the keypad.
To turn off the keylock, press FUNC then key . The scanner beeps three times and Key unlocked appears.
The only other choice I see if that does not work would be to initialize it. Pg 84 of your manual. Hope this helps you,, Mechanic
