You might have to reset the scanner, refer to page 70-71 of your manual. If you need a manual go here,,,

How do I cleear locked out channels when I cant find them


To review locked out channels and clear them if desired:
- Press MAN
- Repeatedly press FUNC and L/OUT
- Each time you press FUNC and L/OUT the scanner will advance to the next locked out channel.

To review locked out channels in SEARCH banks:
- Press SRCH
- Select the bank to review
- Press FUNC then L/OUT
- Use the up and down arrows to review the locked out frequencies

To clear the locked out frequencies in a bank:
- Press SRCH
- Select the bank that you wish to clear
- Press FUNC then L/OUT
- Press FUNC then 6
- Select from the options presented

Unfortunately the PRO-2096 does not have a global clear function like many scanners have.

Local police, sheriff and fire are not received anymore, but can pick up distant city police, airports and hwy patrol. Have Pro 2096 model and have not tried any fixes.


With the distant services still coming in, it's probable that your local agencies have changed from single-frequency operations to a trunked system or, if already trunked, that frequency/user assignments have been updated within the system. For the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area, visit:

Bank are locked out


Simple, some Radio Shack models respond to their preset lock out override control protocol. Try holding the lock out button and the scanner should override the lock out on the banks. If that doesn't work, you may need to un-lock them one by one, which may be time consuming. Or, you could reprogram the scanner all together.

Hope this helps!

All channels locked out pro-2055


I hope this will help. It shows locking and unlocking ids while scanning and while in a bank.


Locking/Unlocking IDs Contents You can lock out IDs you don't want to hear such as telemetry, MDT's, dog catcher, etc. To Lock out an ID while scanning, quickly press L/OUT while the ID is displayed. To Lock or Unlock an ID manually: 1. In Manual mode select any channel of the bank you want to lock or unlock an ID in by entering the bank number and channel number (Ex: 001) then press MAN to advance to the channel. 2. Press PGM then TRUNK to put the scanner in program and trunk modes. You will see the bank number (0-9), list number (0-4), and the list status (ON or OFF) on the 1st line, the ID# in the list (0-29) on the 2nd line, the ID on the 3rd line, and bank tag on the 4th line (if programmed). 3. Press TRUNK (each time) to select the ID list (0-4). 4. Select the ID# (0-29) by pressing up.jpg or dn.jpg (or press and hold; faster) then press L/OUT to lock or unlock the ID. An L will appear to the right of the ID# if the ID is locked out. 5. Press MAN to exit programming. To Unlock IDs in a bank: 1. In Manual mode select any channel of the bank you want to view the locked out IDs in by entering the bank number and channel number (Ex: 001) then press MAN to advance to the channel. 2. Press PGM then TRUNK to put the scanner in program and trunk modes. You will see the ID list. 3. Press FUNC then L/OUT (each time) to view the locked IDs. Press L/OUT to unlock the ID. The next locked out ID will appear. 4. Press MAN to exit programming. Note: You cannot unlock all IDs at one time.
