Radio shack pro 2067 suddenly not receiving

This scanner suddenly quit receiving. I have checked the antenna, squelch, made sure the att. is shut off. Changed antenna and radio locations. The instuction manual trouble shooting guide is useless and I am not sure what to do now. I love this scanner and to have it suddently do this is frustrating. Also the power supply has never changed and is hooked up to a GFI, so any power surges would have been caught.

    Yes I tried resetting 3 different times, checked my antenna by putting 3 different on it. I initialized it and still nothing.

    Thanks anyway. Shame to toss in the trash but, I am pitching it tomorrow.

    I tossed it. I guess RS makes throw away scanners. Thanks for you help.

    Taz, I have not had hands on experience with your scanner, but have you tried resetting it like it explains on pg. 52 of your manual? How about the ant. connector in the scanner? If all else fails, you might have to initialize it(which will wipe out the memory) and start over again. That's about all I can help with. Mechanic

I had the same problem. I realize this is a little late but I just came across this site. I opend it up and the alum wire connecting the BNC to the mother board was cracked. Iput a dab of solder on it and it was good as new.
Wish I would have found this b4 u tossed it.

Hey guys, try moving the VCO coil. remove the 2 solder from the can and you can see 3 coils dipped with wax, try moving the coil, tune to VHF or on NOAA channels then move the coil slightly. it should bring back the life of this scanner. Mine fied in that way. Oh yeah I have 5 of those Pro-2067

The scanner is a model PRO-2050. It will only do squelching sound on all the channels and will not bring in any messages. I completely emptied the scanner. Then I put channel..1-8 in. yStill hear...


Once you hear the sqelching, than you want to turn it back just till it stops. Make sure you have your scanner antenna all the way up and adjust it, slowly down, till you scanner starts to pick up. Believe it or not, the antenna has alot to do with picking up signals. Plus, you need to have it by a window, to help pick up stronger signals.

Radio shack can make you a copy of all the codes for this scanner. I would contact them, about your problems.

Kind regards!

Does not receive

It is posible that you may get some very close signals to show up but even that is not 100%

Make sure you also have any noise blankers etc turned off as these will further reduce the signal.

Check out some of the radio ham and scanner sites like Strong Signals you should find cheap ways of making a home brew ant. for it.

Pro 97 not working

This is just a guess but sounds like your antenna connection (inside the unit) has broken. If you use the antenna as a handle it will eventually break. Radio Shack will repair it for a flat fee of $40 (that was the price the last time I checked) plus shipping. Or if you are really good at soldering and have good eye sight, you can repair it your self.
Your local radioshack should be able to send it in for repair.

I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Scanner problem

A component in the frequency synthesizer circuit bit the dust. This is a common problem but may not be cost effective to repair. Radio Shack scanners are not well made & are susceptible to failure.

Pro-94 no rec

First guess is to check your antenna. Better yet, do a quick swap with someone and try their antenna. If that does not change it, then check to see if the attenuator is turned on, and take it off. Recheck your settings by the book. Hope this helps,, Mechanic
