As long as all frequencies have been cleared, try initializing the scanner. This will return everything to the original factory settings.

To INITIALIZE:
- Turn the scanner OFF, then switch it back ON.
- Hold down the TUNE/CLEAR button.
- While continuing to hold the TUNE/CLEAR button down, insert a pointed object such as a paperclip or the tip of a pen into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, and press the RESET button inside the opening. The display should go blank.
- When the display comes back on, press the TUNE/CLEAR button again. The scanner should now be ready to accept programming.

  1. 1. Power the scanner off and on.
  2. 2. Press and hold the "TUNE/CLEAR" key and stick the end of a paperclip in the reset hole and hit the rest button.
  3. 3. Now remove the paperclip off the reset button and wait for the display to turn back on.
  4. 4. Now release the "TUNE/CLEAR" key.
  • The scanner is no initialized and ready to be programmed again.

  • Now program the scanner.

  1. 1. Press "PGM" key.
  2. 2. Now enter a channel you want to store a frequency.
  3. 3. Press "PGM" again.
  4. 4. Now you will be on that channel.
  5. 5. Now enter the frequency you want to program and don't forget the decimal.

My Radioshack Pro-82 Scanner is stuck. I turned it on, held down the "lock" button until the keypad locked. The screen didn't display the "locked" symbol, but I can't use the keypad either. Even if I try...


First reset the scanner. This will not remove frequencies from memory. Turn the scanner off and then on again. Use a straightened our paper clip to gently push the "Reset" button on the side of the case (small hole). If that doesn't work, the next thing to do is to reinitilize the radio. This blows everything away so its the last resort. If you have the cable adapter and CD ROM for the radio, you may still be able to back up the scanner and reload after you do this. If not, be prepared to reprogram.

Turn the radio off and back on again. Hold down the "Tune/Clear button and again push the reset button. The display should clear. When the display returns, release the "Tune/Clear button

Now reprogram.

When you reintilize the scanner, it should lose all programming and settings. Hold down the Tune/Clear button while pushing the reset button. Do not release the Tune/Clear button until the display clears and returns.

I cant reprogram the scanner. It is only in channel 6


To restore normal operation, try RESETTING the scanner:
- Power the scanner OFF, then power it ON again.
- Insert a pointed object, just as the end of a paperclip, into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then push the small button inside the opening.
-
In many cases, the RESET will restore operation. If not, you'll need to perform the more drastic INITIALIZE process. NOTE: INITIALIZE will erase all information that you've programmed into the scanner and restore it to original factory settings. To INITIALIZE the scanner:
- Power the scanner OFF, then power it ON again.
- While holding sown the TUNE/CLEAR key, press the RESET button as above. The scanner display should shut off.
- When the display turn on again, release the TUNE/CLEAR key.

I reset my pro 82 scanner now i need to program my scanning codes


Your reset wiped out all programmed frequencies, leaving "000.0000" in each channel. That automatically sets the LOCKOUT icon, but it will clear when you program a frequency into the channel. You can download and print your scanner manual here:

How do clear the scanner to re program it


Programming a frequency into a channel clears the previous channel entry, so there's really no need to "clear" the scanner for reprogramming. To eliminate an unwanted frequency, you can either press the LOCKOUT key to prevent the scanner from stopping on a specific channel, or you can "zero" a channel:

1. Press SCAN/MAN to stop
scanning.
2. Use the number keys to enter
the channel number (1-200)
you want to clear.
3. Press PGM. F=C appears.
4. Press 0 then ENT. The
frequency number changes to
000.0000 to indicate the
channel is cleared.

Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.
