Local police, sheriff and fire are not received anymore, but can pick up distant city police, airports and hwy patrol. Have Pro 2096 model and have not tried any fixes.


With the distant services still coming in, it's probable that your local agencies have changed from single-frequency operations to a trunked system or, if already trunked, that frequency/user assignments have been updated within the system. For the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area, visit:

Unlock code all frequencies for pro 2096 digital scanner


Sorry, but there is no magic code that will "unlock" your Pro-2096 or any other modern scanner. If you want a scanner with wider frequency coverage, you'll need to purchase one that comes that way from the factory.

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

If all else fails, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scanner to bring it back to normal operation.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Press 0 after the scanner completes its boot routine
- Press 1 after the menu appears
- Press ENT

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.

I HAVE A PRO-2096 DIGITAL TRUNKING BASE SCANNER. IT HAS WORKED FINE BUT NOW IT READS " ALL CHANNELS LOCKED OUT " NEED HELP


need to do a RESET. Then try your local WX frequency to verify it works. The RESET will wipe out all existing programming, just to warn you. Check your manual, or RadioShack.com for details.

How do i reset frequencies on a scanner /delete frequencies


You listed your question in the PRO-2096 section, so this response applies to that model. If you have a different scanner, please let us know the make and model.

The PRO-2096 is an advanced scanner capable of monitoring both single frequency conventional systems and advanced trunking radio systems. Programming methods are detailed and lengthy and cannot be reproduced here. For specific programming instructions, please see the scanner's operating manual, which can be downloaded/printed here:

If you have questions regarding a specific feature or problem with the scanner, please let us know.

Can I upgrade to recieve marks system.


If you mean the State of Ohio MARCS system, then you need a digital trunking scanner. The Radio Shack Pro-96 and PRO-2096 will work as will the new GRE 500/600 units and a couple of Uniden Bearcats. They must say "Digital Trunking" or "P-25" for it to work on Ohio MARCS.
