Whenever i turn on my pro-82 scanner all i get is static and have tried squelch and reset


Check your antenna connections, if the connections are good then try a different antenna. Most likely that is the problem if it's the scanner. If your trying to scan Public Safety Frequencies you may be running into a situation where they have gone Digital and your scanner is Analog or they may have encrypted their frequency or control channels so the scanners won't work.

My Radio Shack Pro-82 Scanner is not working at all.i turned it on and it wont even scan. i cant even hear the squelch. and the only time it picks up something is when its on the air setting it picks up...


Ok I have had the same problem with the Pro 82 and the biggest problems I've found for it not to scan is Corrosion of the terminals not only outside but inside. Even on the keypad and pcb board. SOLUTION: Just take it all apart with a small philips pecision screwdriver and with a dry toothbrush scrape all the corrosion off the board. This always solves my problem and it should yours. Even if theres no corrosion visible on the terminals be assured there is still some inside keping this from functioning correctly. Shotgun420

Hopefully Resetting or Initializing the scanner will clear the problem and get it working again for you. Instructions for these procedures are on page 38 and 39 of the scanner operating manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

My scanner will not scan


You need at least 2 or more frequencies programmed, and
adjust the squelch knob until there is no more static, then press the scan button.

Here's a manual

Scanner not receiving


Performing a RESET will not clear/erase frequencies or other data programmed into the scanner. If the RESET doesn't work though, you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. That procedure will clear all programmed data and return the scanner to its "as new" state. Need the manual for your PRO-82? You canb download/print it here:

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise
