WELL, After a year I alone, without any help from UNIDEN, FIGURED IT OUT.
1. TURN IT OFF, UNPLUG AC JACK IN THE BACK!
2. REMOVE Backup battery cover "underneath" scanner! TAKE ALL 3 BATTERIES OUT.
3. I PUSHED THE POWER BUTTON TO BLEED ANYTHING OFF IN THE CAPACITORS, IF IT HAS ANY INSIDE?
4. PUSH THE"2", "9", AND "HOLD BUTTONS DOWN, THEN PLUG THE A.C. BACK IN ON THE BACK OF THE SCANNER.
5.You WILL notice while you are doing STEP#4 THAT THE DISPLAY SAY'S "CLEAR". ALL FREQUENCIES WILL BE CLEARED IN THE MEMORY!! THEN TURN Scanner OFF reinstall the BATTERIES, TURN BACK ON AND START PROGRAMMING!! THIS WAS FOR A "BC340CRS" SCANNER

Can,t get scanner off all channels locked mode


Please try this!!
You may need a soft or hard reset. Here's some reading and instructions.
Please use this first!
resetting your scanner
1. Turn off your scanner, and then turn it on again.

2. Insert a pointed object into the reset hole on the back
of the scanner. Then, gently press and release the reset
button. Pressing reset does not clear the scanner's
working memory or the V-Scanner folders.

If this doesn't work here's step two! CAUTION. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, but it MAY Fix the Problem!!

Initializing your scanner clears all information stored in your
scanner's working memory. Initialize your scanner only when
you are sure it is not working properly. V-Scanner memory is
not affected when you initialize the scanner.

1. Turn off the scanner, and turn it on again. First, the DSP
boot version, and then Welcome To Digital Trunking appears.

2. Press 0. The following messages appear on the display:

System Tests

Select Test
Exits if no
Key Press

3. Press 1. The following messages appear on the display:

Factory Init
Erase Memory
ENTER if Yes
CL to EXIT

4. Press ENT. The following messages appear on the display:

Initializing
Clr Main Mem
V-Scan is OK
Please Wait

5. Do not turn off your scanner until the initialization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000 and
Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display.

Hope this works.. Happy Scanning

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.

How to clear all my frequencies from my portable scanner


To clear all information that you've programmed into the scanner you can perform a RESET to original factory settings:

1. Turn off the scanner.
2. While holding down the 2 and 9 keys, turn on the
scanner. CLEAR flashes for about 5 seconds as
the scanner clears its memory.
Note: Do not turn off the scanner again until CLEAR
stops flashing. Otherwise, the scanner might not clear its memory properly.

No telling what he did, but if you've tried deleting his entries and the scanner is still locked up, you'll need to reset it. This procedure will clear all the information you have have stored in the scanner.
1. Turn the scanner OFF.
2. While holding down the 2 and 9 keys, turn the scanner ON. CLEAR will flash for about 5 seconds while the scanner clears its memory.
NOTE: Do not turn the scanner OFF until CLEAR stops flashing.

Scanner says WIRED when i turn it on, and it won't do anything


A RESET may clear the problem, but it will also erase all frequencies and data that you've programmed into the scanner. To RESET the PRO-94,
- Turn the scanner OFF
- While holding the 2 and 9 keys down, turn the scanner ON. CLEAR will flash for about 5 seconds as the scanner clears its memory and restores factory settings. Do NOT turn the scanner OFF until CLEAR stops flashing.
