Hi,

To my understanding, this is a common problem with the PRO-2004 (2005 and 2006) model(s) concerning their electroluminescent panel going dim over time. In some cases, it is just a case of dead backlights.

Should it be the display, the catalog Number is 11137510, NP Part Number is XB1573 and the technical name/description is PCB ASSY,LCD.

You can try inquiring/ordering the part 1-800-843-7422 or visit your local RadioShack store.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

There could be a loose connection between the display and the circuit board. If you decide you feel comfortable taking it apart check and see if you can wiggle the display. If it wiggles it may just be a loose solder joint. Keep me posted.

If you found this solution helpful please rate it when you get a chance.

Thanks - Tech101

I have a Radio shack hand help police scanner, when I put the batteries in and turn it on, i just hear this low level static and some small clicking noise. The display finally came on for a few minutes but...


Take the scanner back to radio shack for an exchange. If you have had the radio too long then take the scanner back to radio shack and they will send it to their service center for repairs. Personnally I would upgrade to a digital scanner as things are getting ready to change nation wide. Most goverments will be upgrading to P25 digital to comply with the requirements of Homeland Security.

Turn it on, and when "Welcome" appears, press zero, then press one. It will display a message indicating it is initializing to the factory state.

Very dim light on my pro 2052.


Display or backlight? If it's the backlight, you need to replace one solder-in bulb. Radio Shack part number 272-114 (5v, 25mA) will work. If it's the dispay you need to contact the Shack for a replacement.

Nothing's wrong. All of your frequencies have been deleted (pre-programmed PLUS anything you entered yourself).
You'll need to re-enter all of the frequencies to get it working again.

Radio Shack can "CLone" your scanner with one in the store - try that first to see if it will work and let me know.

I have a Radio Shack Pro-96 Digital Handheld scanner with at least three channels locked out. My fault but would like to get them to work again as I have a $500 scanner and it is locked out on these...


Are you talking about banks? (0-9) If so, choose one sole bank (i.e. 7) and press MAN, then PGM, then TRUNK. Once here, Press the FUNC key on the left hand side and I believe you press "1" on the keypad afterwards. This will unlock the specified bank. If it is no "1", try the other numbers. Hope this helps...

"ALL CHANNELS LOCKED OUT' RADIO SHACK COULDN'T HELP.


If the scanner's display locks up or does not work properly after you connect a power source, you might need to reset or initialize it. If you have problems with the scanner, first try to reset it to retain the memory. Warning: Initializing the scanner will clear all channel memories and reverts it the state it was in right out of the box. To Initialize the scanner, turn off the scanner then turn it back on. Press 0 when the welcome screen appears. 'Please select factory tests. Exit if no key is pressed' will briefly appear. Then quickly press 1. 'Initialization clear all memory Enter to confirm Clear to exit' will briefly appear. Quickly press ENT to initialize. 'Initializing, Please stand by' then appears. Do not turn off the scanner while it is initializing. The display should then show M000 on the top line and Bank 0 CH 00 when finished.
