To reset the scanner (clear a problem or keyboard lockup):
- Tune the power OFF and then back ON.
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, ballpoint pen tip, etc) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner and gently press the button inside.

If the RESET does not clear the problem you can INITIALIZE the scanner, but this procedure will clear/erase all information that you have programmed into the scanner.
- Power the scanner OFF and then ON.
- Press and hold the TUNE/CLEAR button while pressing the reset button as above. The display will momentarily blank.
- When the display resumes, press TUNE/CLEAR again.

THE WORD WIRED IS ON SCREAN


WIRED should only appear on the screen if you have a programming interface cable connected to the scanner. Assuming that you do not have the cable connected, you'll need to RESET the scanner to clear it and restore it to normal operation. This process will erase/delete everything that you've programmed into the scanner, so be prepared to reprogram it. To RESET the PRO-83:
- Power the scanner OFF
- Press and hold the 2, 9, and HOLD keys and power the scanner ON
- The word CLEAr will display to confirm the RESET

Locked on search


You may have inadvertently locked the keyboard. If a key-shaped icon is showing on the display, press and hold the FUNC and KEYLOCK keys until the icon disappears. If that doesn't work, you may need to reset the scanner to restore normal operation. NOTE: this operation will delete all information that you have programmed into the scanner. To RESET the PRO-83, power the scanner OFF. Press and hold the 2, 9 and HOLD keys, and power the scanner ON. After about three seconds, CLEAr should appear on the display to confirm the RESET.

Need to do a master reset on pro 84 sanner but don't have manual


To RESET the PRO-84, turn the scanner OFF, then hold in the 2, 9 and HOLD keys and power the scanner ON. The word CLEAr will appear on the display to confirm the RESET.
While the manual for the PRO-84 has not been posted by Radio Shack, it is essentially a red PRO-83. You can download/print the 83 manual here:

In my Pro-83 Bank, I am missing banks 2 and 8. How can I get these restored?


While the unit is scanning, just push the 2, and then the 8 and it toggles them on and off while in SCAN.
