Make sure that the keypad isn't locked. See if there is a little key in the display. If yes, then hold down the lock key to unlock the keypad. Next, hit 'scan' and you will have to select a group to scan, so press the #1 or #2 button IF you have frequencies loaded into it. Can you press the WX button to hear the weather? Let me know. Good luck.

SOURCE: all channels locked on my radio shack pro-95 scanner

You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again and enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
Make sure you are entering your frequencies in empty channels unless you want to over write one that you don't want to use any longer. Press "PGM" until you get to an empty channel.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scanns quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

Turn it on, and when "Welcome" appears, press zero, then press one. It will display a message indicating it is initializing to the factory state.

If there is no frequencies on your scanner it will lock all channels out. if all your frequencies are on one bank and you accidentally hit that bank number and turn it off it will lock out all channels. If that's the case just hit that bank no. back on and they will unlock.

SOURCE: 800 MHz frequency Mode problem

You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

I Havel a pro-95 scanner and I have frequencies programmed into banks 1 thru 6 and the scanner isn't scanning banks 2 thru 6


Make sure the banks are enabled and the frequencies in the banks aren't locked out. If you are scanning trunked systems make sure the control channels are set up properly.

Keep in mind you cannot scan digital systems with this scanner, only analog systems and frequencies.

Pro 96 locked out


Press and hold the Lock key for 3 seconds, then the 'key' should not show up in the display. Also, when you press 'scan' try pressing some of the number keys to turn-off and to switch on scanning banks. Okay?
