Make sure channels are not locked out. It should say lo in lower case letters.

I can't figure out how to program my Radio Shack Pro-97 scanner!

If you can't program the unit using the instructions in the owner's manual, there's no way anyone can post a workable answer for you here. I suggest that you join a Yahoo users' group for the PRO-97. That way you can pose a problem to a group of users, plus get one-on-one assistance in programming your scanner.

Have a pro 97 scanner and try couple of computes to program it

You need police scanner programming software and a cable before your computer will talk to your scanner.
Do a google or yahoo search for police scanner software. About $25 and a cable from radioshack for about the same. The disk that comes with the cable will only let your computer recognize the cable not program the scanner.
Good luck. Waste of money in my opinion but it may be easier then manual programming the radio.

I bought the scanner usb cable and cant figure out how to get new codes to program my scanner.

You will also need a software package to program your scanner. Unfortunately the cable does not come with the software. Try going to and download a program called Win97. It is free for 30 days and makes programming a breeze and it can also interface with (if you are a paying subscriber to the site) to download automatically.If you don't mind doing a little typing, you can view the info on the site for free and enter it into the program.

Setup and Menu buttons do nothing on my LG LHT854

You need to press "Input" on the remote and keep pressing it until you get to the connection that you are using (e.g.: HDMI, etc). Once on that, you can use the setup screen. It took me several hours to figure that out.

Euro-pro iron steam genarator model # ep8001

I have a temporary solution that is working: Use WD-40 around the switch. Spray with the straw that comes with the WD-40. Let stand for a couple days, then turn the whole unit upside down and spray again, and let it stand that way for a couple days. If we could get inside, it could be more of a sure thing, but I had given up on mine and when I accidently hit the switch after siting for the last few days, , it came on!


Now for Sears to try to locate the tool that will open the case.
