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

SOURCE: will not scan properly
I suppose you are trying to scan the channels by hand, If I'm not mistaken this model can also be hooked up to the pc.
Manual pages 55 and forward are on scanning, I suppose you have been throught those.
I't must be a simple setting wrong somewhere.

Performing a RESET will not clear/erase frequencies or other data programmed into the scanner. If the RESET doesn't work though, you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. That procedure will clear all programmed data and return the scanner to its "as new" state. Need the manual for your PRO-82? You canb download/print it here:

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.
