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.
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.

    You have to make sure you don't over write what you entered in the previous channel. Press "PGM" until you find an empty channel before you enter another one. That is unless you wish to over write a previously entered frequency.

In reference to our last conversation...you recommend that I "Insert the screwdriver into the hole on top of the link I would like to remove ". I wish to know which hole are you referring to ?The...


Read this: For removing or adding links firstly you will have to remove bracelet pins or screws. In case if there are screw on each side of bracelet - you have to use two screwdrivers simultaneously. In case if there are pins - read the rest:
You may or may not have arrows inside bracelet. Arrows are pointing the way the pins must come out. First you have to find out what sort of pins or even screws are used to keep links together (screw ends and pin end may look similar). Examine both bracelet sides and find the side where pin ends have a groove. Start with a tiny screwdriver and try to unscrew one. If it turns, but doesn't come out, that means you have a pins instead of screws. For removing pins the best would be pin removing tool (approx.5GBP on ebay), but it's possible to do the job without it. Take a hardened steel needle and blunt the sharp end to the approx. size of pin end diameter using any sharpening stone or sandpaper. Get an old towel and fold it to make a soft base for work (like small cusion). As you don't have a special bracelet holder you will need a pair of helping hands to hold the bracelet steady upright. You will need small hammer and pair of flat nose pliers as well. NOTE: The pins MUST be driven split end out first, not vice versa. Make sure that the grooved pin ends are facing towel, not the needle and hammer. Now place the watch on the folded towel, take that needle and smallest hammer you have and start driving the pin out using light blows. Do Not hit hard, as you will brake the needle, scratch your watch or even injure yourself. Watchmakers are using 45 gram hammer, so, calculate your strength of blows. After a few punches check if the split end is coming out and when you see that the pin end is coming out long enough - grab it with pliers and pull the pin out with pliers. When pulling, do NOT turn pliers, as pins tend to brake when twisted. Use firm grip and your strength to pull the pin without twisting. After shortening the bracelet or adding extra link(s) make sure that the pins go back EXACTLY the same way as they came out- the blunt end first in the hole and the split (grooved) end last. Before doing that check remaining pins in bracelet to make sure that you put them back from the right side of bracelet. It is recommended to use plastic hammer to drive pins back in or you will scratch or damage bracelet. If plastic hammer is not available use an old toothbrush handle (or some plastic item) as an absorber. Simply put pin into the hole as deep as you can with your fingers, put the toothbrush handle on split pin end and hit handle, not the pin. Make sure that pin ends are flush with bracelet. If needed- hit few more times. Job done! If you do not want to do it yourself, any jeweler will do it in a matter of few minutes.

I have borrowed an old Black & Decker electric knife that has 2 blades with it. I don't know how to use it? both blades look the same, but you only have one it at one time don't you?


You use both blades together.. On one blade is a (should be) a small metal knob sticking out from the side. On the other is a matching hole. Hold the blades crossed at 90 deg. Lock the knob into the hole on the other and slide blades parrallel, side by side. Both blades should now slip into the slots in handle and lock into place. They will not be exactly level with each other. One will stick out further.. Plug in power, and push run button.. Blades slide back and forth against each other, just hold sharp side against the meat, and push button.. Cuts like butter..
To remove for cleaning, there should be a small button near where the blades lock in, on the bottom (?) push to release blades.. for washing.

Shorten the band on a Mossimo watch


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
  • Place the watch face down on the cloth. This will help keep your watch from being scratched.

  • 2

    Examine the links closest to the buckle. These links will have small pin holes on each side of the link, as well as a small arrow engraved on the inner side of the band. These indicate the direction the pins must be removed.

  • 3

    Place the driving tool (a thumbtack will work) inside the pin hole in the band and push the pin out in the direction of the arrow. Remove the pin carefully from the other side.

  • 4

    Repeat Step 3 to remove any links needed to adjust the band properly.

  • 5

    Reattach the band to the buckle. Attach each end of the buckle back to the bracelet, driving the pin in the opposite direction from how it was removed (opposite the arrow).


  • Best regards. Jewel

    How do you adjust the steel watch band of a Citizen Sky Hawk A-T? JY0000-53E


      Making the Band Shorter
    1. Step 1 Stand the bracelet up on its side. Look for arrows on the inside of the bracelet.
    2. Step 2 Insert a small pointed tool from your hobby or watch set into the tiny holes on the edge of the bracelet. Insert the tool in the hole at the base of the arrow. You will see two holes on the edge of the band. Both pins need to be removed.
    3. Step 3 Push the pin out with force in the direction the arrow is pointing. Repeat this process on the second pin. When the pins are removed the link will be loose.
    4. Step 4 Remove the link from its neighbor and replace one pin to secure the bracelet.
    5. Making the Band Longer
    6. Step 1 Remove the link closest to the clasp by putting a small, pointed tool into the tiny hole on the edge of the watch band.
    7. Step 2 Push the pin out so the link is detached from the clasp.
    8. Step 3 Put a new link next to the detached link and line them up so a new pin can go through their holes and attach them together. You may need to snap them together depending on the type of Citizen bracelet you have.
    9. Step 4 Place the pin into the hole on the edge of the band and push the pin through the band with your sharp tool to attach the two links.
    10. Step 5 Repeat this process if you need to attach more than one link.

    My key is stuck in the ignition of my car.


    Weird. First I would drive to my favorite locksmith and see what he thinks. If it wont come out you are going to have to remove the lock tumbler. Remove the dash housing to give you access to the lock. With the battery disconnected turn the key to the acc position. Look on the side of the lock housing and find the small hole with a little pin sticking up in it. Using a small tool push the pin down and hold it down. Insert a small flathead screwdriver into the slot and pry the lock tumbler out. Now you should be able to completely remove the tumbler by hand. Purchase a replacement and install it or take the old one to your locksmith and have him evaluate the old one.

    Need to know how to remove my ingention lock cydlner and what tools i will need


    OK LOOK UNDER THE BODY OF THE LOCK (MAY NEED TO REMOVE COLUMN COVER) THERE IS A SMALL HOLE WITH A STEEL PIN IN IT.
    FROM THE LOCKED POSITION USE A SMALL ROD TO PUSH ON THE PIN AND HOLD PRESSURE ON IT AND ROTATE THE LOCK TO RUN, THE PIN SHOULD MOVE UP THEN PULL THE LOCK CYLINDER OUT.
    IF THIS CAN'T GET THE LOCK OUT YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP.
    WITH OUT THE RIGHT TOOLS YOU CAN DO A LOT OF DAMAGE TRING TO FORCE IT
