Hi, My first guess with the limited info is, either you have the attenuator turned(which is like an RFgain), or you have a defect in the antenna or coax(if it's mobile.) For the attenuator see pg.66 of your manual.
I assume it's picking up your ham radio when you key it, but at close range it'll pick it up without an antenna.
I hope this helps you sort it out,, Mechanic

There may be issues with the unit or the source of the signal. The scanner may have lost its sensitivity. There are a lot of articles on the unit about programming etc. The problem is that it takes special equipment to test the front end of the receiver. The company the made the scanner for Radio Shack was GRE in Japan. They moved to China and then closed, they have reopened and are now owned by Whistler.

Programing pager tone alerts

The scanner itself does not directly support decoding of pager tones, but if you know someone who can manage their way around a bit of soldering and hacking, they might be able to rig something up with an old pager which could be triggered from the audio output jack from the scanner.
