2. While holding down 2, 9, and Hold, turn on the scanner.
It takes about 3 seconds to initialize and CLEAr appears.

You may benefit by performing a reset or initialization of the scanner. The manual describes the procedure at the bottom of page 38.

You may lose previously stored frequencies if you reset or initialize the radio.

RESET
1. Turn off the scanner, then turn
it on again.
2. Insert a pointed object, such
as a straightened paper clip,
into the reset opening on the
side of the scanner. Then
gently press the reset button
inside the opening.

Initialize
1. Turn off the scanner, then turn
it on again.
2. Hold down TUNE/CLEAR.
3. While holding down TUNE/
CLEAR, insert a pointed object
(such as a straightened paper
clip) into the reset opening on
the side of the scanner, then
gently press the reset button
inside the opening. The
display should turn off.
4. When the display turns on
again, release TUNE/CLEAR.

I hope this helps & good luck!

If all else fails, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scannerto bring it back to normal operation.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Press 0 then 1 while "Welcome to Dual Trunking" is displayed.
- "Initializing Please Wait" will appear for about 2 seconds.

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.

MY 2096 BASE SCANNER READS ALL CHANNELS LOCKED AND I CAN'T UN DO IT AND OPERATE NORMAL. HOW DO I CORRECT THIS PROBLEM?


If all else fails, and it sounds like it has, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scanner to bring it back to normal operation.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Press 0 after the scanner completes its boot routine
- Press 1 after the menu appears
- Press ENT

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.
