Question about Radio Shack Pro-96 Scanner

1 Answer

My pro-96 is shorting out where the power plugs in.If I wrap the cord around the plug-in portion, it works fairly well. Checked the board and all solder points seem tight. Not sure what to try next.

Dometic RM2652 was working fine then stopped - no lights at the control panel above the doors.


Usually there is a short in the system when fuse is blown. Check the cord as sometimes mouse can damage the cord. It is a posibility.
Check power to the electronic board.

Why is the electrical wire so short


Don't add an extention cord to an extention cord! Buy a 100' 14/4 extension cord and tie the end to the fence so it won't come un plugged.
If the plug keeps popping out of the short cord at the blower,wrap the cord around the handle to prevent disconnection.

Does your plug have the 3rd ground plug on the cord? If yes, does the switch have the paper insulation wrapping around it? Something isn't being grounded correctly.

Malibu transformer 120w 1-8100-9120-01 transformer has no power and LCD is dark. Power plug was verified to be working. Unit is new, installed, configured and came back to see if lights came on during...


I don't have repair for defect timer, except return to Home Depot and exchange for another.
Try unplugging timer to see if will reset. There is no specific reset button on timer.
Test outlet with circuit analyzer to confirm there are no electrical problems.

The label shows advisories: Don't use extension cord, unplug unit when working on bulbs, and plug unit into GFCI protected outlet to protect from surge and short.

Other advisories not shown: Unplug power pack if breaker trips or if power goes out. Wait until power is on before plugging back in. First bulb should be 10 feet from unit. Do not wrap extra cord around power pack. Match bulb wattage and power pack wattage: 200 watt power pack should have 200 watts and not more or less. Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out.
These advisories should not affect initial operation of timer, but are things that shorten life of power packs,

My dsi xl wont charge unless i wrap the cord TIGHTLY around it and now that wont work.


Your cord has a short in it. Wrapping the cord in ANY way, even around itself for safekeeping, slowly deteriorates the cord.

200/400 watt Powerline Dc to AC Inverter blows fuses


If the inverter is blowing the fuse immediately upon plugging in the inverter (before you even plug something into the inverter) you most likely have a short in the 12V power cord. If you have an Ohm meter, you should be able to check the resistance across the two contacts on the 12V plug of the power cord. Wiggle it around some. If you get a very low reading, and especially if it's intermittent, you have a bad cord, which should be pretty easy and cheap to replace. My experience with these cords has been that their quality is pretty poor.
If that is the problem, maybe you can cannibalize a cord from an old CB radio, but here's a fairly heavy duty one on Amazon (they don't give an amp rating though) http://www.amazon.com/Truckspec-TSPSCBH-2CP-12-Volt-Platinum-Replacement/dp/B001JT5QF0

Stopped working...is it a fuse wrapped around the power cord that could be faulty?


no that is a graphite ferrol just to cut down noise it may receive from other devices. check the voltage with a meter on the power supply. If it plugs direct into a/c from the wall, the power board is most likely bad in printer. then it's a throw away.

Wont charge or turn on


usually when cords are wrapped around the base of the plug, it creats a short in the cord. And most people *do* wrap cords around objects to create convienent space. basicly it was the cord not the system.
