like mine and all of you above the scanner has the same problem of moving a few inches and then the error message disconnect.... unlock ....etc the best solution is throw it in the bin and never buy cannon again. if they cannot come up with a solution that everyone is having with there (approx $200-$300) scaners that dont want repeat business. they wont get if from me thats for sure. good luck everyone

It's possible that your county services have switched to a trunking system, leaving you with nothing but "dead" frequencies. To check the frequencies and systems that are currently in use in your area, visit:

SCANNER PRO 97 WAS TRYING TO PROGRAM AND NOM WHEN I HIT SCAN IT SHOWS AII CHANNELS LOCKED OUT.


You may have a priority channel selected if it refuses to scan.i believe most scanners will reset if you remove batteries for a period.some cellular channels are blocked in the USA so if it's not a cellular frequency and you are not in a country with restrictions then you really need to understand how to input a frequency ....store it... Remember to adjust squelch as the squelch when turned fully on will not usually output any sound and lock scan if it's turned off in most cases.

Can the GRECOM PSR255. be used to scan for aircraft /airband frequencies


Your radio is not capable of recieving air band frequencies. It will only receive 4 bands consisting of: 26 - 54 MHz; 68 - 88 MHz; 137 - 174 MHz and 380 - 512 Mhz.

The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 (just above commercial FM radio) and 137 MHZ (just below 2 meter Ham radio). Amplitude Modulation ("AM") is the mode that transmissions are made. The lowest 10 MHz of the band, from 108-117.95 MHz, is split into 200 narrow-band channels of 50 kHz. These are reserved for navigational aids such as VOR beacons, and precision approach systems such as ILS localizers

I have a Uniden bc95xlt scanner! it is less than 1 yr. old. it will lock on to a channel and not unlock to continue scanning. I can't find my paperwork to prove age of scanner! Pls. Help!


Hi Jan,

It sounds to me as if your scanner is locking on to a 'BIRDIE', which is an internally generated frequency in the scanner, all scanners have this by default, your user manual usually has a page, near the back of the manual, with known 'birdies', and there a lots.

When your scanner locks onto a 'BIRDIE', which is a frequency with no voice audio, the best thing to do is press Lockout button, during the scan, your scanner will, if there is no other problem with it, continue to scan, until it finds another 'BIRDIE', then you do the same thing as I've described, until you've locked out all the 'BIRDIES'.

I hope this info was useful.

Cheers,
Peter.

GRECOM PSR-200 DESKTOP SCANNING RECEIVER WHEN SCANNING WEATHER CHANEL KEEPS COMING IN.


NOAA weather broadcasts are continuous, therefore scanning is interrupted when your receiver locks on that frequency. You need to lock out all NOAA channels

Grecom psr-200 .when scanning weather chanel comes in .what is problim.


IF you have a weather frequency programmed in as a scanning channel, it will stop on it everytime, so you need to go to 'manual' on the weather channel, and press 'lock-out' so that it isn't on during scanning. You can still manually go to that channel, but it won't stop while scanning that way. Good luck.

I have the BC370CRS SCANNER I am trying to clear all the memory and reset it. It is telling me to hold down 2, 9, and hold and turn it on. That is not working. Can you please tell me another way to do...


Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

Pro-96 Scanner: My pro 96 scanner says all channels locked and it ...


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.

GRE prs 295 channels locked out


This message usually means that the scanner has been cleared of all programming. Press the MANUAL key repeatedly to review channels. If 000.0000 shows, it means that you need to program the unit.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

Unlocking channels


first press the manual button so you can go through the channels one by one. Then look for a button that has L/O(lock out) push this once for every channel you have a frequency programmed for it, the channel will probably not unlock if there is no frequecy programmed to it.

per roupe50 above
