Your scanner does not have a standard keyboard programming function. Rather you must "capture" a frequency in SCAN or SEARCH mode, and then transfer (program) it into the scanner's PRIVATE bank. For detailed instructions on doing this, you can download/print the scanner's operating manual here:

Sounds like a tech problem internally, may need cleaning on the pot. A service center can fix it. Or could be an Ant problem? Check your Ant connection make sure they are good and not dirty. Mositure in our homes builds up inside and on all connection. 1200 grit Sand papers works well on ant connection. Or did you move the scanner? that will cause problems as well.
