Question about Radio Shack Pro-2096 Base Scanner
My screen has vertical black lines. can hear transmissions, but nothing on display.a friend of mine at rs downloaded software that he thought would fix but did not
I have same problem. First unplug and then turn radio on to clear any left over power. Open the radio by removing 4 screws on back, then 4 more screws to remove top of inner case. then you will see a white ribbon cable. This has either come loose or it is not lined up properly on the connector. There are tabs on each end of the connector, you will need a super tiny screwdriver like for use on eyeglasses to open the tabs. Slide them towards the display or front of radio to remove the ribbon cable. I then used some alcohol and a q-tip and cleaned the metal contact point. then I slid the cable into place, and being careful not to touch anything inside radio, turn it on and check display. It took some moving around for me but finally got it to come back. Then close tabs on connector to hold ribbon cable in place. It seems to be a common problem with this radio.
