SOURCE: NO SQUELCH

I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Sincerely

Greg Stevens

SOURCE: Radio Shack PRO-49 handheld scanner. Turns on,

The "hot" pin inside the BNC antenna connector is probably broken or disconnected internally.

Check if one of the batteries MIGHT be in backwards.

NEXT check EACH cell as occassionally you get a bad one brand new.

SOURCE: pro 95 scanner squelch does not silence receiver

Your squelch control may be back or your control needs to be aligned properly on the circuit board. Ship it in for repair if you wish. dodgem250.com

Scanner acts like it doent have squelch control


If your scanner is open squelched on one channel, try blocking that channel out. Some times a channel can get jammed if someone has a mic cue button stuck or something similar.
Try locking out that particular channel and see if you get your squelch control back.

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

Squelch is open all the time


Often the potentometer (squelch control) becomes worn or dirty, this can be sometimes cured by spraying a WD40 or similar oil and then rapidly moving the control down and up. Do not use oil that is conductive.
