"scanner is busy" message

I started getting messages that say the scanner is busy while in the middle of doing a scan. The program locks up on me too. I've even turned off any security software while doing scans and I still get an error.

Turn the scanner off, disconect from computer, turn on again while its disconnected, let it do its startup routine for a few minutes. When it stops making noises, turn off again. Turn off computer and restart. Connect scanner again to computer and turn it on. Start the software. I'd appreciate if you'd let me know if it helped. Otherwise you might need to open it or send it for repair to Sony. Service contact is here: http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/sonylist/index.html

Microtek Scanner thinks it's busy when it isn't


Check using a new USB cable. Unplug everything else plug into USB except for mouse and keyboard. If not work. Un-install driver and software. Download driver and latest software. Reinstall printer using driver only. Then use Paint to test it.

I am using a software package called Readsoft Forms. I create form definitions for different surveys using this software. when I change to a different form definition to scan I sometimes get an error...


Please try USB connectivity instead of SCSI. It is lot easier and unlike SCSI, there is no sequencing required. (With SCSI, you need to start the device before you start the Computer). You can switch on the scanner when you want!

I need to reprogram my Realistic Pro-2023 police scanner. I do not have my local police codes nor do I know how to reprogram it. Help.


PROGRAMMING YOUR SCANNER

For a a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com


1. Turn on your scanner by turning VOLUME clockwise.

2. Press [MANUAL], enter the channel number you want to program, then
press [MANUAL] and [PROGRAM]. The channel number flashes to indicate
you are programming the channel.

3. Enter a frequency.

4. Press [ENTER] to store the frequency. If you make a mistake in Step
3, ERROR appears on the display. Proceed again from Step 3.

5. If you want your scanner to pause after each transmission before
scanning to the next channel, press [DELAY] so that DELAY appears in
the display. See "Using the Delay Feature."

6. To program more channels, repeat Steps 2-4. If you want to program
the next channel in sequence, simply press [PROGRAM] and repeat Steps
3 - 4.

SETTING THE VOLUME AND SQUELCH CONTROLS

Use the SQUELCH control to decrease your scanner's sensitivity to weak
signals. This allows the scanner to receive only the strongest
transmissions.

1. Turn the SQUELCH and VOLUME controls fully counterclockwise.

2. Turn the VOLUME control clockwise until you hear a hissing sound.

3. Slowly turn the SQUELCH control clockwise until the hissing sound
stops.

SCANNING THE CHANNELS

To begin scanning the channels, press [SCAN]. Your scanner scans through
all the channels except the ones you have locked out. Be sure to read the
following sections to get the full benefit from your scanner's special
features.

USING THE DELAY FEATURE

Many agencies use a two-way radio system that might have a 2 second silence
(or more) between a query and a reply. To keep from missing a reply,
program a delay on the channels you identify as operating this way.

To program a delay, select the channel and press [DELAY] so that DELAY
appears on the display. Now when your scanner pauses at an active channel
when scanning, it waits for 2 seconds after the completion of each
transmission on that channel before it resumes scanning.

If you do not want your scanner to pause, select the channel and be sure
that DELAY is not on the display. If DELAY appears on the display, press
[DELAY] to turn it off for that channel.

LOCKING OUT CHANNELS

You can make your scanner scan more efficiently by locking out channels
that you have not programmed. Manually select the channel and press [LOCK
OUT] so that LOCK OUT apperas on the display. This is also handy for
locking out channels that have a continuous transmission. You can still
manually select locked-out channels for listening.

To unlock a channel you have locked, manually select the channel and press
[LOCK OUT] so that LOCK OUT disappears from the display.

NOTE: You cannot lock out Channel 1.

USING THE PRIORITY FEATURE

Channel 1 is designated as your scanner's priority channel. You can turn
on the priority feature so that you do not miss transmissions on Channel 1,
even if you are monitoring another channel.

Press [PRIORITY] so that PRIORITY appears on the display. Now your scanner
checks Channel 1 every 2 seconds, and stays on the channel if there is any
activity.

MANUALLY SELECTING A CHANNEL

You can continuously monitor a specific channel without scanning. This is
useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to
miss any details-even though there might be periods of silence-or if you
want to monitor a specific channel.

Follow these steps to manually select a channel.

1. Press MANUAL.

2. Enter the channel number.

3. Press MANUAL again.

Or, if your scanner is scanning and stops at the desired channel, press
MANUAL one time. (Pressing MANUAL additional times causes your scanner
to step through the channels.)

LISTENING TO THE WEATHER BAND

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has allocated several channels
for use by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We
have preprogrammed your scanner with all of the frequencies available to
NOAA. To hear your local forecast and regional weather information, simply
press [WX]. Your scanner begins scanning through the weather band, and WX
SEARCH appears on the display.

Your scanner should stop within a few seconds, and you hear the local
weather broadcast. If the broadcast is weak, you can press [WX] again
to scan through the rest of the weather band.

I have just installed the scanner and software, however, when i try yto scan an error message comes up saying 'the action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose switch to to activate...


Hi,

Might as well try to power cycle the device meaning disconnect it from the computer , turn off the scanner , unplugged the adapter from the power source and then push on the power button for 5sec so that excess power will be drain and then restart the computer also as soon as your computer boots up connect the scanner .

I continue to get the message Scanner cannot be initialized. I have already removed and reinstalled the program and still get the same message.


It's a problem with the scanner hardware. Make sure the lock on the scanner isn't set. Some models come with a locking switch under the scanner or at the border of the scanning plate towards the back of the machine.
If the scanner is unlocked or it doesn't have a lock switch, then is a unrecoverable hardware failure. You should replace the scanner or get it repaired.

Handheld scanner/preprogramed frequencies


You sure confused me . . .
My recently purchased BCD396XT came with a mind of its own - not matter what I did, it would only scan the preprogrammed systems in Alaska. That didn't do much for me here in Texas, so I had to beat the thing into submission. First I installed BuTel programming software, then I deleted ALL the factory programming. Finally, I used the software to download and program what I wanted from the database at www.RadioReference.com. The scanner does exactly what I want it to.

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
