Look at the keyboard and find the button the shows the symbol for a key and a symbol for a light bulb. Press the FUNC button and then the key indicated above. The words key unlocked should appear in the display. Repeat the process to lock the keys again.

Getting scanner to scan


Make sure that the keypad isn't locked. See if there is a little key in the display. If yes, then hold down the lock key to unlock the keypad. Next, hit 'scan' and you will have to select a group to scan, so press the #1 or #2 button IF you have frequencies loaded into it. Can you press the WX button to hear the weather? Let me know. Good luck.

Pro 95 scanner squelch does not silence receiver regardless of knob position,subsequently receiver will not scan.


Your squelch control may be back or your control needs to be aligned properly on the circuit board. Ship it in for repair if you wish. dodgem250.com

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise

Squelch quit working in regular scan mode PRO-528


Just fixed my squelch problem; I don't know how it happened but Resistor 138 was burned & intermittant. It was so badly burned that I could not read the color code but it measured 880 ohms intermittantly. I replaced it with an 860 ohm carbon resistor & all seems well; time will tell. R-138 is located on the circuit board right behind the squelch potentiometer. R-139 is immediately behind the pot & R-138 is next to R-139. All I had to do is remove the 4 screws on the back of the case & the unit splits in half. I clipped the old resistor out leaving a bit of the old leads so I could solder in the new resistor without having to get to the backside of the circuit board. Scanner is working as I type this & I hope it does not burn out again. Hopefully this is the same problem in your scanner & an easy fix. Good luck.

NO SQUELCH


I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Sincerely

Greg Stevens

Not scanning


Assuming that the squelch operates, the problem lies in a circuit that interfaces the squelch & scanning circuits. Probably not worth the cost of repair.

I have the same issue, was working fine, then the scan works but never stops on any freq. nor does the squelch make any sounds. The only sound is the key tones, I have reset the unit and tried new batteries and a different antena. still nothing? any ideas?
