I can't get scanner to reset or scan. Help


Pull the battery. leave battery pack out. connect a clip lead between the first and last spot where the battery connects and turn the radio on for 1/2 hour- it should do nothing with the battery out. Remove the clip lead, install new batteries and then see if it works, or you can do the paperclip reset. Let me know.

Weather chanel comes in costanty


Cannot have a regularly scanned channel be a weather channel. press 'manual' on the WX channel, then press the 'L/O' "lockout" button and it will keep the WX channel out of the scan.

My uniden bearcat 50 channel 800mhz stop the police,fire ect.. and only gives me weather.. why? can you help ?


  • You can try pressing "Manual" and then "Scan" or "Band" buttons from the weather setting to get you back to scanning the police, fire,etc.
  • Make sure you don't have a WX (Weather) frequency programmed into on of the regular 50 channels or the scanner will continue to stop every time around as it will pick up the WX frequency.
  • Make sure you have your scanner programmed as well.

My pro-82 scanner scans threw all channels but will not pick up any frequencies?


To verify that the scanner is working properly, program one or more of the weather frequencies(162.4, 162.425, 162.45, 162,475, 162.5, 162.525, 162.55, 161.65, 161.775, 163.275) into memory and then scan. NOTE: Not all frequencies are in use in all areas, so you may need to try several. If you receive the weather broadcasts, then you may need to adjust the squelch setting on your scanner to receive local signals. You also need to verify that the frequencies programmed into the scanner are valid, active frequencies in your area. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If the scanner fails to receive the weather broadcasts, you need to check the antenna connections inside the unit and/or have the scanner checked/repaired by a qualified technician.

I cleared my scanner pro-82 now how do i program the channels back. the bank1 is blinking and is on channel 1. i do not have any scan codes for local fd/pd in the 78801 area zip code.


For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're really NOT codes), visit:

www.RadioReference.com

To program known frequencies into your scanner,

1. Press PGM. PGM appears. Then enter the channel number (1-200) where you want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
2. Use the number keys and DELAY/. to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel.
Your scanner automatically rounds the entered frequency down to the closest valid frequency. For example, if you enter a frequency of 151.473, your scanner accepts it as 151.470.

Press DELAY/.if you want the scanner to pause 2 seconds on this channel before it proceeds to the next channel after a transmission ends. The scanner also stores this setting in the channel.

To program the next channel in sequence, press PGM and repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Scanner not receiving


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:

Whenever I push the orange fd/pd button it only searches through 32.00 to 46.00. Then when I push lockout it says FLO-FULL.


IT will only search the FD/PD codes range under the orange buttons. What you need to do is get a copy of your local frequencies and program them into your scanner, after that hit search.
