If it's still under the year warranty I would reckomend taking it to your local radioshack Retail store to send in for repair. Otherwise it sounds like the the speaker or the audio amplifier might be going out.

    Also CHeck the squelch and if you don't have any frequencies programmed in then you may be just hearing what HAM's call birdies, which are a pain when you are using the "preprogrammed" Frequencies under the orange buttons. You may need to get a copy of your local frequencies and program them in, then hit scan

That means you have to put new batteries in your scanner... or recharge your rechargable batteries but if you use rechargable batteries use your yellow battery cradle for rechargeable batteries and your black cradle for alakline batteries....foe pro 82...

My pro-82 scanner scans threw all channels but will not pick up any frequencies?


To verify that the scanner is working properly, program one or more of the weather frequencies(162.4, 162.425, 162.45, 162,475, 162.5, 162.525, 162.55, 161.65, 161.775, 163.275) into memory and then scan. NOTE: Not all frequencies are in use in all areas, so you may need to try several. If you receive the weather broadcasts, then you may need to adjust the squelch setting on your scanner to receive local signals. You also need to verify that the frequencies programmed into the scanner are valid, active frequencies in your area. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If the scanner fails to receive the weather broadcasts, you need to check the antenna connections inside the unit and/or have the scanner checked/repaired by a qualified technician.

I have a radio shack weather alert pro 82


Tilt the scanner in a different direction while looking at the display. Do you see anything on the display when you look at it from a different angle? Sometimes manufacturers don't put the LCD display in correctly, and because LCD's have a really small viewing angle it can result in not seeing what is displayed.
