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.

Just fixed my squelch problem; I don't know how it happened but Resistor 138 was burned & intermittant. It was so badly burned that I could not read the color code but it measured 880 ohms intermittantly. I replaced it with an 860 ohm carbon resistor & all seems well; time will tell. R-138 is located on the circuit board right behind the squelch potentiometer. R-139 is immediately behind the pot & R-138 is next to R-139. All I had to do is remove the 4 screws on the back of the case & the unit splits in half. I clipped the old resistor out leaving a bit of the old leads so I could solder in the new resistor without having to get to the backside of the circuit board. Scanner is working as I type this & I hope it does not burn out again. Hopefully this is the same problem in your scanner & an easy fix. Good luck.
